My Ooma Telo often malfunctions by not ringing incoming calls but immediately sends the calls to voice mail instead. I only know this when I am trying to call home and I know someone is there but no one picks up. Rebooting my Telo almost always solves the problem. As it stands now, I have to call Ooma Tech Suport and ask for my issue to be elevated. The tech then reboots my Telo and the issue is resolved. Why can't I reboot my Telo from within the My Ooma web interface and save all that time and hassle?

Perhaps something else is going on with your network. The feature you are requesting is a good idea. However, rebooting shouldn't be needed with Ooma if properly setup unless something else is going on.

For example, for whatever reason, I have a particular router ethernet port that has issues with maintaining VPN connection for my Ooma. I have 2 Ooma units and whatever is plugged into that particular ethernet port, would lose VPN after a couple of weeks or so. When this happens, I have to reboot the router to correct the situation. Still don't know why this is. I've updated router firmware, reset to router factory settings to start over but so far no resolution.

Other than your modem and router, to make sure your setup is optimal, check these posts out:

Came across this thread because I was looking at remotely rebooting my moms telo via my ooma.

Surprised this feature does not exist in their portal.

I too am surprised this isn't available.
My Ooma operates wireless and sits in the basement so it can connect into the wired phone system.
I have a combination of the usual wireless handsets and a couple of plug it into the wall individual phones.

For whatever reason, the Ooma box will start flashing red, and any phone calls in go to VM while if you happen to be home and happen to pick up the phone, you get a continuous beeping/busy signal.

If you can check the Status of the box using the web page, why can't there be something to reboot the Ooma box if the status shows it offline?
