Can mFi act as Remote Rebooter

I bought a mFi mPower Pro unit hoping it would act as a remote rebooter, but I don't think the software is versatile enough.

 

Basically I want this power strip to detect when the Internet goes down, and then perform a network reset by dropping power to all devices connected, then turn on the modem, wait 2 minutes, turn on security appliance, wait 3 mins, and then turn on network switch.

 

Is this type of programming possible with the mFi product line?

 

Thank you for your response(s)

That can't be done via the mFi software, but you can control the individual outputs/outlets via SSH, so it's possible with a custom script.

If it ain't broke, fix it anyway

You can do exactly that but not from controller or web interface, you have to script everithing from command line.
