"Remote On" hardware to control the power supply

I've been working on a "Remote On" setup for my Flex Radio 6600M. I used an Amazon Alexa smart plug and the Digital Loggers relay as suggested by Flex Radio in the following places:
I have that configured and it is working great. Then, I started looking for a solution to remote control my power supply as well. I would like to use a smart plug of some sort so I can configure a routine with a two minute delay between turning off the radio and cutting the power supply. There are a few suggestions in the above links, like using the Digital Loggers Pro Switch. However, all the suggestions seem to point to devices that are only rated to 15 amps. I routinely see my 6600M pulling 16 amps. Have any of you come up with a solution to this? 73

    16 amps at 110 volts is 1,760 watts. That seems like a lot for a 100-watt transceiver. I have used a Wemo smart plug for six years without an issue.

    16 Amps @ 14 VDC, not 120VAC

    16 amps at 14 volts is probably around 4 amps @ 115 volts.

    I use Teckin power strips from Amazon. Can turn outlets on individually right from smart phone. Turn on power supply, computer can even reset router if I need to. Can connect and disconnect antenna with my 1289 antenna switch. I run DYn DNS so Im always connected.
