Will this work for a local IP address? 1. I have created virtual switches for all of my PCs2. I have created a CoRE piston for each virtual switch that executes a Wake on Lan (WOL) when virtual switch “Changes” to on3. I have installed Event Ghost and created a webserver and macros to tell the PC(s) to force Turn Off4. I have installed the Send to Event Ghost App for each PC and assigned ports for them.5. I have opened these ports in my router
This all works great however, If the PC is switched on or turned off manually then the virtual switch is out of sync. For 3 of my PCs, I have an Iris Smart Plug that monitors the Power so i am able to use those to sync the status of the Virtual Switches.
However, I would like to be able to use a simple “Pinger” instead of the Iris Plug to check periodically (every 30 seconds?) if the PCs are on or off.
Since the Pi is always on, for my alarm server, I would like to use it to ping the PCs and then report their status to SmartThings…
Solution is Host Pinger! Works Great!!
