Keene Netswitch Controls Mains Devices via IP

Here’s a useful new box of tricks from Keene Electronics.  The IPMSW1 has 2 power outlets that can be programmed and controlled via a web interface. If you need to control mains powered equipment, reboot servers etc then this maybe just what you are looking for.

“The IPMSW1 is an IP controllable mains power switch. It has two independent mains outlets that can be controlled in a number of ways. Simple browser button based on / off control.

Full browser based set-up and timer configuration  Adjustable power fail re-start options allow each switch to delay up to 255 seconds before switching on. Ideal for remote re-start of systems that require 2 stage start ups.

3 timer events per switch with daily weekly or monthly repeats.  During each timer event the switch can be set to either on or off.  Own IP address, so can be controlled via internet using port forwarding.  Support for DDNS.  Manual override button for each switch.  Optionally use internet time servers to set internal clock.  Internal “Real Time Clock” IC with 5 year battery backup.”

  1. Looks good but is missing the ability to ping a remote site and do a power cycle if a number of pings fail. This feature is ideal if you have remote equipment that locks up which means you can’t connect to it…

  2. We’ve now re-written the firmware and added ping support. This allows you to use the switch to monitor a particular IP address and take action if the ping fails (switch off or on or power cycle). Please see the product page and have a look at our downloadable guide for more information.
