Is there any way to set up the fingbox to reboot routers or access points?  And if there is, can you set up a schedule?  This would be very helpful in refreshing connected home devices that go offline.

    I wish we can do that, but I think it's a little bit complicated, you would have to grant the Fingbox access to your router and hope for them to be able to interact with each other.

    There a way to do that via IFTTT, but don't hold me to that.

    This is not something we can do today, I'm afraid. But we'll add it to the feature request list. (BTW moving this to the Fingbox discussion area)

    This would be a great use for a wemo type switch but I could not find a native way to recycle it.  You can schedule to turn it off and then on but...  once off it will lose connectivity to the network and I do not know once offline if still remembers its schedule to turn back on.

    Just turning this one into an ideas thread so others can vote. Cast your vote if you'd like to see implemented too.

    Great idea - my Spark (NZ) router needs rebooting every other day.
