I know you can use the insteon or X10 switching plugs.
But I'd rather switch the 5vdc line for the PSU.
I travel a lot and am looking for something to do this remotely, from anywhere in the world effectively.

Wifi or wired based controller with a web or phone app?

I'm sure guys are doing it. Just trying to trackd own my best choice, and find something I can buy and have delivered quickly.

Lot's of ebay options, but the lack of info and wait time to get it. Is to much.


So let's see what you guys have going? Rasp pi maybe and usb relays?

Do a search for RasPi or BeagleBone or Audrio and home automation. You'll find tons of stuff including the relay boards.  I don't use it myself and rarely need to power cycle my miners but - would have come handy at least a couple times...

I've seen all those, essentially a pc with a usb relay,
I've seen all in one pre setup options. with web ui already in them etc.
Which is what I'm hoping for...

Actually, most I came across are driven from the GPIO pins so no USB involved, just buffered relays or what would be even better, opto isolators to toggle the PSU's DC-ON lines. eg http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/111851982752?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true
16 channels on that one.

I've seen those options it's tempting. I'm hoping for something sold by a north american so I can have it sometime int he next 3 weeks lol
A pi may be my only option, but I'm so utterly new to them. I'd need a lot of help Sad

The best and cheapest solution for you is
Sonoff Pow WiFi Switch With Power Consumption Measurement
You can control on,off, and make timers for the miners remotely through mobile app and also monitoring there power consumption on real time and daily and monthly statistics .. it's very helpful device I use it for my farm .. but unfortunately the manufacturer have no stock right now  .. but you can find it on aliexpress .. Hope it help you

Those are actually pretty slick devices. and give a temperature of the room? I may give those a try, thank you.

If you use boards like mine, you don't need an optoisolator or relay to trip the supply - the external turnon takes an active-high signal (3-20VDC), so it'd work just fine on GPIO from a Pi.

I believe chigieureitor (or however the heck his name is spelled) rigged up a setup like that for his mine in Venezuela.

If you  interested in monitoring the room TEMP and controlling cooling system automatically according to room Temp they have also very helpful device

looks like I'll just go with a switchable PDU/
Pretty nice little units and will do what I need.
Will need to ensure I can remote access into a pc on my network though.
Unless it offers a web app or some way to access from outside.
