Looking for Simple Wan Switch

I am trying to find a SIMPLE Wan Switch.  Here are the requirements.

  • Simple
  • Not WiFi - LAN connection 
  • Onboard Web server 
  • 2 or more dry contact relays
  • runs on 12VDC
  • Does NOT require an App on IOS to run.
I'm looking for the simplest solution for some hams who just want connect it to 12V, wire up the RCA for remote power down and maybe do a port forward so they can see it from a web browser.  

I've ruled out Digital IO Logger due to cost and no basic interface.  In fact, I have 1 of the 8 port ones to sell in Canada if someone wants it.

Sonoff... That held some promise, but it would not connect to my WiFi network, it requires an App to control and turned out not to be basic plug and play.

This one hold promise:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Industrial-Ethernet-16-Channel-Output-TCP-IP-Internet-Web-Relay-Remote-Swit....  16 Channels for $60.

This one https://www.ebay.com/itm/LAN-Ethernet-2-way-Relay-Board-Delay-Switch-TCP-UDP-Controller-Module-WEB-L..., has promise.  I'm not so sure if there is an onboard web server.  If anyone has played with it, I would like to know.  For $4.59 and free shipping, I might order 1 or 2 to test with, but it might take up to March to receive.  :)

Thoughts?  Mike va3mw
