Pari,

Unfortunately, the only options on the switch are to reboot there is not exactly a power off option in the EXOS software.

There is no power on and no power off.

What is the use case?

For my home lab I use GSM controlled power socket. I can power off an on my lab by SMS or by GSM call.

Could you post a link to the product.

I use the Osram Lightify prooduct line to manage my lights and power sockets - @home via Alexa and I'm able to turn it off/on via a mobile app from anywhere.

Hello,

I am using an TP-Link HS100. With this settings you can use it without the TP-Link cloud: (https://www.softscheck.com/en/reverse-engineering-tp-link-hs110/).

In addtition I use a very cheap device form the german DIY market OBI (https://www.obi.de/hausfunksteuerung/wifi-stecker-schuko/p/2291706) it's powered by an ESP8266 and I flashed it with the open source firmware Tasmota).

I can use (disable/enable power) both devices directly via XMC (small script in XMC) and via my home automation FHEM.

Best regards
Stephan

My managed PDU's and UPS's typically have an option to power down ports, so that may be an option for you too. But I am also curious on your use case. I imagine Extreme is trying to keep the end user from a "suicide scenario" where you have to hop in a car and make a long drive to power a switch back up.
