I've written an app called PowerIP Lite that allows you to power or on off your electronics from anywhere in the world using your mobile.

It is designed to work with the IP Power 9258 / 9222 / 9223 / 9255 / 9212 / 9280 range network controlled power switches from Aviosys. Depending upon the particular switch, you can control up to 8 electronic devices per switch. They have normal mains outlet sockets for ease of connection.

You can see the range of switches on Aviosys' website here:

Possible applications for PowerIP Lite are:

• rebooting or power cycling a server or router by remote control if it has crashed
• turning your computer on or off when you are out so that you can use it remotely
• remote control security lights to turn them on or off when you are out
• remote control heating systems
• home automation applications
• power off your devices to save energy rather than leaving them on standby
• monitoring equipment (with the 9212 Delux)

There are two versions of PowerIP. PowerIP Lite is free, but is ad-supported and is limited to controlling two Aviosys switches (i.e. up to 8 devices).

There is also a Pro version, which has lots of extra features:

• remote control as many power switches as you like
• get and set schedules to switch devices on or off automatically at preset times, even when you do not have mobile coverage
• define macros to control your equipment according to user-defined sequences
• group your frequently used equipment onto a favourites screen
• landscape support for phones and tablets
• create shortcuts on your home screen
• get output names from the power switches during setup to save yourself having to type them in
• reorganise the power strips to have them in any order on screen
• power cycle an output using a specified delay
• monitor temperature and current on the 9258W2/9255 Pro
• password protect your settings
• "protect" individual power outputs to prevent a user from accidentally powering off important equipment
• “protect” power outputs so that certain users cannot control them at all
• integration with other apps (such as Tasker) using Android intents

There is a full user manual which describes the operation and features of both PowerIP Lite and PowerIP Pro. You can find it here:

Presently supported switches/firmwares are:

IP9258 S/T/Ping (v1.56, v.1.61, v.1.62, v3.00, v.4.01, v.4.03)

IP9222 (v1.00)

If your firmware/switch is not listed it will probably work anyway but if you have any problems do get in touch.
