A simple application to turn on your computer by sending an SMS to the android phone that has this app installed on.
Why you need this?
This is useful when you can't WOL over WAN, or when you don't want to wake anyone at 2am
Faq and Install:
The profile name cannot contain spaces so it will be replaced with _
Make sure that you have a wifi router home and, your computer is connected to the router with UTP cable. (It is not possible to wake up computer that uses wifi lan cards)
Configure your computers bios to enable WOL.
Download the .apk to an adnroid phone that runs 2.2+ and install it.
After install create a new profile and enter the required data.
Send an SMS contaiing the Profile name to the phone that has this apk installed on it.
The wifi handling is implemented into the app. When it is enabled and connected to the router, it will wake up your PC.
If the wifi is turned off, then the app will turn it on and tries to connect to your router.
If the phone can't connect to the router after 5 mins the application stops. When your wifi is turned on but it isn't connected to an access point then the phone might be away from your router so the WOL won't start.
If you don't have a dynamic dns and you can only reach you PC by IP address, then send the get-ip command and you will receive a reply sms with the current WAN (Internet) IP address. These texts won't be visible on the phone.
-Easy to use.
-It needs to be configured only the first time.
-Test function to test the WOL feature.
-Wake on lan triggered by a user defined SMS message,
-The sms containing the “profile name” will only be received by the application.
-If the Wifi is turned off, the app will turn it on and when the magic packets have been sent out, it will be turned off.
-Get your WAN (Internet) by SMS
-Simple log that shows the apps activities.
-If you haven't setup a profile but you know the MACADDRESS of your PC then you can turn it on by sending an sms. Example: Wake:MACADDRESS
More features and bug fixes will be implemented soon.
Note: The app needs to be installed on a phone that can access your routers access point. You just need to send the Profile name to that phone.
