Creates a switch that controls and checks the status of a remote host in the same network
  • Turning on is done via Wake on LAN. Since WOL packets are not routable, zway and the target host must reside in the same network.
  • Turning off is handled via SSH. You must ensure that the user running zway (usually root) has its public SSH key on the target machine
  • Checking is done via ping
Tested with Z-Way version v2.2.2

Installation can be done directly via git or via the the Zway App-Store.

Just done this using a 'HTTP Device' that calls EventGhost to do the WoL and SleepOnLan to do the off action. The I choose Sleep On Lan is that I can easily have my off action as suspend, hibernate, poweroff or forcepoweroff.

I mainly use it for suspending and waking my MediaPortal HTPCs (this will also switch on/off my TVs if they are set to respond to input).
