Wake on LAN (WOL)

What is Wake on Lan?

Wake on LAN (WOL) allows sending a special message to wake up a computer or device from sleep mode. Note: this will only work if you enable WOL on your device.

What commands can I do?

You can only send a magic packet to MAC addresses on your local network. For this reason WOL only works if you are using Eddy Bridge, when using Eddy Voice Remote.

What’s a MAC address?

A MAC address is a  number identified by a manufacture and typically associated to a physical hardware. A MAC address will be something like: 00-14-22-01-23-45. Every network device has a unique MAC Address.

What are some problems with WOL?

Setting up Wake On LAN can be problematic because every manufacturer has different ways to enabling WOL. Also getting a MAC address requires technical knowledge to find your device’s MAC Address.
