I haven't really looked into that with the RPi, but generally speaking, if there is a system daemon for it, it could be done. However, the ethernet interface and hardware have to support what is known as "magic packets". Note to self: check out WoL on RPi.can you also remotely turnon through something similar to wake on lan?
No, not without adding external hardware.
POE provides only a way to power the RPi through a network cable. Requires special devices on both ends of the cable to inject then extract the voltage. You must still be physically present to restart the RPi from shutdown state.omarm wrote: ↑Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:28 pmi looked up details of raspberry pi 3 b+
that has POE
when i googled, it seems as though you need an additional device: Pi PoE Switch HAT?
does that mean i can turn on and off over the internet?
just did a search on youtube and cant see anything
Wake On LAN solutions require the WOL hardware to be permanently powered and they then enable power to the rest of the board when they get their magic packet. Pi's so far have not been designed with that mechanism in mind.
FWIW, I run NUT on two RPI's: one as the Server connected to a CyberPower GX1325U UPS and the other as a Client. Operation has been totally reliable, giving me about 90 minutes of run time with a mains failure (the UPS also powers a DSL Modem, Router, 8-port Ethernet Switch, a VoIP Phone, a Cordless Phone Base, two ATA's, and a Security Base Station). Both RPI's shut down gracefully should the UPS become exhausted.
