Technology to turn a computer on?

  • 2596 Georgia

    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?
