No, I'm in agreement with you niknak. Putting an on off switch on the ooma hub would not be the way to "power cycle" the unit.

You way does, but interrupting the power to the unit.

I would assume reason there is no off switch is to not confuse the customer.
The device is a network router and intended to be on 24/7. If you put a power switch on it, people will think they're supposed to turn it off and wonder why they don't get phone calls while it's off.

My cable modem and D-Link routers don't have power switches nor do the rest of my networking components. I don't expect my Ooma phone router to have a power switch.

Most things that I have that are not supposed to be turned off don't have a power switch.

I don't remember. Does the Ooma device reboot if you hold the Ooma tab button down? I know if you hold it while plugging it in it factory resets, but what about when it's already on?

All I need to do is press the button on the power strip to cycle all my devices

Yes, very simple.
