Detect a power outage in your Home from anywhere in the world!
This widget can monitor any Modem/Router connected to internet. For example if you have internet at home you will be notified when that internet connection is lost. In that case:
- You have no electricity.
- Your internet provider cut your internet connection.
- Technically speaking this widget will monitor any IP address,URL, Domain name (ex: www.MyHome.com). That means anything connected to the internet. The monitoring is made through Ping and Port-Scanning to the given IP address (IPv4 only).
- In case of connection unsuccessful (you have to configure your modem/router) see troubleshooting section on: http://reefcentral.wordpress.com/2012/04/14/angry-bolt-widget-android/
- If you want to monitor an IP address always changing you can use http://www.no-ip.com . Some modem/routers have Dynamic DDNS service embedded. Use it and you have a behavior like fixed IP: http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/linksys-router-dynamic-dns-s/129.htm
