    Hey guys! Awesome to be part of this online community!
    I have a question that I was hoping to get some help with – does anyone know if there is a switch-accessible way to independently turn a computer on?
    I know other environmental controls exist to turn the TV on/off, and blinds up/down, lights on/off – but what about turning a computer on?

    Hi Georgia,
    First of all, welcome to our community! It’s good to have you.
    I did some research for you but no luck. At this stage there doesn’t appear to be a way to turn on a computer with a switch. The problem being that in order to pair the switch with a device, the device already needs to be on. It’s definitely a good idea though. I have to ask someone to help me turn on my computer and then I can do the rest, but it is a bit frustrating to have to rely on someone else to get me started. Does anyone else know more? Perhaps a user or OT?

    Hello,
    you can have WEMO installed at home (light switches and power points) then download the app and you can control everything from that app. Which could include turning on and off lights and devices.
    Thanks.
