Vera boots my PC with Scene Controller
« on: June 27, 2009, 12:52:09 pm »
I would like Vera to have an option to boot a PC on my LAN when I press a scene button on a Wall Controller or the Vera Dashboard.

Scenario: Home Theater Room.
Press button on wall controller.
Scene is enabled.
Lights dim
Curtains turn
TV turns On
Popcorn maker starts
HTPC doesn't boot....(Have to manually turn PC on)

I think the option to LAN boot PC's should be added to the basic functionality.

Could people that would like this option show their support and suggestions?
Vera 2
Firmware: 1.5.101 Zwave: 3.20

I am not sure about the details but wake on LAN request seems pretty useful.
