Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Auto reboot script for power strip

I have an 8 outlet APC Switched Rack PDU. It has a web interface and is SNMP scriptable.

I would like to be able to have Simon reboot any individual outlet when necessary. I know little about this kind of scripting. Here's some info from APC on scripting:

Does anyone have and idea on how to do this? It would be a very useful feature if Simon could do it.

Re: Auto reboot script for power strip

I would be keen to have this functionality available, too. From what I've read, it sounds like a third-party SNMP unix tool is required, though. Once that is installed, Simon can talk to it using the Script service or notifier.

If anyone has one of these devices and has experience with setting this up, or is willing to try, please let us know.
