Ooma Home Hub Status Indicator

Post by wens32 » Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:11 am

It would be nice to have a tool to be able to check on the status of your Ooma hub at home from the Lounge.

ie. if your internet is down, one would be able to click on a button, and see that the connection to the hub is unavailable.

Perhaps some sort of indicator widget with green and red light to indicate your hub status.

I have a better indicator. It's on my cell phone. If the internet OR ooma goes down, within 2 minutes I get a nagging call from the wife!

That's a good indicator indeed. That happens to me too...

Does the Ooma hub reboot itself after x minutes of lost internet connection?

I think I saw that in another Feature Request post...

A suite of Network Unavailable tools would be a great addition to the Ooma Core.

Yeah, I agree on the little tools. I mentioned sometime back of having a "widget" on maybe a phone or a desktop (like at work) that monitored ooma network.
Good ideas.

Yeah... got one too. Kind of expensive, but very reliable.
