About this app

Easily wake up computers from your phone/tablet!

* For this app to work, you need to make sure that your computer and network is set up for and supports Wake On Lan / WOL *

Automate waking up your computers by sending an intent broadcast from apps such as Llama and Tasker!
In the latest version there is now support for Tasker plugins to make it even easier to automatically wake devices.
Instructions on how to do this are available in the latest version of the app under the help section.

Quick Feature List
* Groups
* Network Search (Find devices on your network and add them to your list. No more finding out MAC addresses etc!)
* One touch wakeup widget for both devices and groups (A widget with online status is coming soon)
* Tasker plugin
* Intent Broadcast support (See instructions inside app help section for details on this)
* CSV Import/Export - So you can share your list of devices easily!
* Material Design (Taking suggestions on this!)
* Auto-Refreshing Device Online Status (Using both ports and ping)
* Supports Wake On Lan(WoL) and Wake On Wan(WoW)
* SecureOn

For WoW, just set the broadcast address to be the remote IP address of the device. This may require some extra setup on the remote network to make sure that the wakeup packets actually arrive on the remote device.

If you're trying to wake up a device that is connected via WiFi it may not work, there's not many WiFi cards that support the WOL standard. WOL works best via an ethernet connection. Some devices such as laptops may not support WOL very well or at all. Some might only work when they are in sleep mode, and others might allow you to turn it on when it is powered off.

Permission Details
Photos/Media/Files/USB Storage - This is used for reading/writing CSV files to your internal storage so that you can copy your list of devices to other devices easily.

Network/WiFi - This is so that the app can actually send the magic packets to wake up your devices. It is also used in the network search screen and for pinging devices to see if they are online.

Works great, with an intuitive interface. FYI for other users, initially when testing the app internally on my LAN, the message wasn't being received by the target machine. This was due to my phone sending the messages through my cell network, instead of to my WiFi, because I had set my WiFi Calling to "Cellular Preferred". This can be resolved by activating airplane mode and then turning-on WiFi, or by setting WiFi Calling to "WiFi Preferred". This is probably obvious to most people but initially misled me into thinking my PC config was incorrect. Another FYI, is that 2 different machines of mine had the default MS-installed driver for the "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" which prevented WOL from working. This was solved by downloading the latest driver directly from Realtek.

Simple and effective, the widget is a very useful feature. Can't fault this app, thanks to the developer for a great job! Now I just have to figure out how to do it with google assistant v2 so I can voice activate it. IFTTT isn't working anymore.

This app is great. Does everything that I need. Using port forwarding on my router I was able to turn on my PC via this app remotely (outside my network). But please, could you make at least a confirmation like "do you really want to turn on this pc?". Many times I've woken up my PC by accidentally clicking it, it's not really fun when you're far from home and have to RDP to the PC to shut it off...
