My Comcast internet connection is pretty flaky. Resetting the router and modem usually fixes it. But I hate having to crawl around and unplug them, and I’d like to be able to trigger it automatically (say, if pinging google.com failed twice in 60 seconds). I used to be able to reset the modem over the network, but Comcast pushed a firmware update that eliminated that functionality.
So now I have them plugged into a Peanut Zigbee outlet. It is trivial to turn the outlet off. However, turning it back on is more difficult, because there is no longer any internet connection.
Is there a SmartApp with local processing that will turn it off, wait 30 seconds, and then turn it back on automatically?
Is there a stand-alone push button or switch that has local processing? I have some Xaiomi Aqara buttons, but they require cloud processing, so they won’t work.
Is there another way of handling this that I’m not thinking of?
