Remote power through SmartSDR

I would like to see a 12V DC network based power on/off switch that SmartSDR can recognize.  The device shall have an ID field which SmartSDR will recognize and display as a remote (power) device and signal that device to turn on/off the power.

While working on a wish list, this device shall report environmental information such as DC voltage, DC current, AC voltage or solar charge current, ambient temperature, door open/closed sensor. 

The device may have other flex/user lines that may control other devices.

This device may also include a noise free 1GB network switch.

Although not Flex's main product line it could a) manufacture, b) rebrand OEM, c) have a list of supported OEM products.

The lack of power status is lacking in the 6000 series, especially key up and key down voltage.

This would be reasonably easy to put together using an Arduino with a network interface.

DDUTIL already gives u a readout of the Voltage and Tempurate of the 6000 series INCLUDING Key Up and Key Down voltage.
