For the first time in a year, my hub needed rebooting

Not a big deal as 1nce in a year isn’t bad. Only problem is it was in the basement and I’m in a wheelchair. It took me over an hour. Any clever solution to this? A wifi smart plug, or just scheduled reboot every week or so should avoid this?

I reboot my hub using Rebooter app? you can get info from the link below. I hope it helps.


You shouldn’t need to pull the plug on it. Only do this if you cannot restart it gracefully either via web UI or ip-address:8081. If neither of those are available then yes you may need to pull the plug. Obviously you would need something that is accessible outside of HE like Wi-Fi plugs.
