Remote Reboot of Hub and Devices?

OK, I’ve got my Air and Sky up and running, but I’d like to know how to remote reboot the hub?

I’m not currently on-site and I have had to move my hub to a different fixed IP address and I’d like to be able to reboot it so it picks up the new IP.

I can’t find anyway to reboot the hub? Is there a way to do this? And can you send a reboot signal to the devices if they start behaving strangely and need a reboot?

There is no current method. This has been requested.

Hi @dividedsky WF Support has the capability to remotely reboot your HUB (was built as an admin feature for us to help customers resolve network issues). We have not added that capability into the app yet…as there are some conditions where this could inadvertently screw things up.

Will take the feature request into consideration. Until then, you have two options: 1) unplug the HUB, wait 10sec, plug it back in, or 2) send us a note at support@weatherflow.com along with your station ID and we can reboot remotely.

PS - put better batteries (ie. Energizer Ultimate Lithium) in the SKY on your station named “Possum” .

I power mine with a PoE switch and splitter, so I can power-cycle it remotely, but you could also use a remotely controlled power switch. The Monoprice STITCH isn’t awful for $20. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=27937

I use a Belkin Wemo Insight Switch (https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.gizmodo.com.au/2015/08/belkin-wemo-insight-switch-australian-review/amp). It has been programmed to reset at midnight, daily.
