Option to Reset/Reboot Fingbox from App

Wasn’t sure whether to post this here as a new thread or in https://community.fing.com/discussion/297/fingbox-keeps-dropping-connection-offline-most-of-the-day#latest.  One of my two LANs/ISPs has a problem with dropping the connection.  Many times, there does not appear to be anything wrong on the ISP’s end and if I just let thing alone it will start working again within anything from a from minutes to most of the day.  It often speeds up the recovery of the Fingbox (and whatever less may be acting up) to unplug power to the box and reconnect after a few tens of seconds.  With all the jumble of cables and devices where the power source is and bad arthritis, it would be really nice to be able to power cycle the Fingbox from the app.  Anybody else see this as convenient?

    I could see that as being useful. @VioletChepil?

    I think this is definitely a requested feature. I'm moving over to Fingbox feature requests as well.

    Agreed. I came here looking for help to reboot the Fing box via the iPhone app, but looks like the feature is not supported. Many other device management apps support this simple feature; Please add it.

    +1  my fingbox is a bit bad accessable, therefore a reboot feature within the app would be very helpfull
