Remote power on|off


#1

Is there any way to turn Pearl-2 on and off remotly?


#2

Unfortunately no official API commands are available for shutdown and power on. You can utilize Wake-on LAN functionality to power on Pearl-2, however the only method to turn off Pearl remotely, would be from the Maintenance page of the Web UI with the “shutdown” button at the bottom.


#3

Which additional configuration of Pearl-2 should be done to make possible WOL utilization?

Is WOL is disabled by default in Pearl-2? How can i turn it on?


#4

If it possible, please, add the ability to turn off Pearl-2 via API. Without this feature it’s hard to integrate Pearl-2 to modern multimedia environment with unified management.


#5

Wake on LAN is enabled by default. there are no changes needed to be made from Pearl-2’s side


#6

I made some experiments with WOL. I used WakeMeOnLan utility at laptop connected same subnet as Pearl-2. I tried to power on Pearl-2 via WOL function without luck. But then i succesfully powered on another PC at the same subnet via WOL.

Is there any tricks to use WOL function with Pearl-2?

There is no special trick no, unfortunately this is not something we can really assist with as we don’t know your network and connections or limitations
