I currently look after a network for people that winter in the US and have their house systems monitored and controlled over the internet. Eg, heat, security system, camers, etc Like many others I read on here, they are constantly having issues with their Hitron Modem. I am having to make a trip to continually reset their modem, a simple power down and power up fixes everything. This is very costly and time consuming.
Would putting the modem on a digital timed outlet to power down for 5 minutes and restart in the middle of the night have any adverse effects?
