"Power on" when Power resumes

Especially for Lametrics without Battery it would be nice, that LaMetric turns on, when the Power is back on.

In our Company the power is turned of from 10pm to 6am. Every morning somebody has to turn it on. If it turnes on automatically, it would be really nice.

agreed really need this, especially if I'm going to use this as a smart alarm clock .... 

A million times yes. I have ours connected via USB to our cable box and they reset the boxes all the time. Plus our power goes out all the time.
So now I'm really in to this topic because we have a new cable box that automatically checks for updates and resets EVERY single night and I have to turn the LaMetric back on every morning. It's the only source of power I have for it where I want it. Developers, is this even being discussed as an option? I really don't want to have to move my LaMetric.
Hi, any news from here?
Currently LaMetric is just a black block for me on my desk because I am too lazy to switch it on every time... so currently it is absolutely unused by me, if if I like to use it...

 

Thank you for your ideas on device improvements. Every update is based on your experience of using LaMetric Time.

We considered your requests and the next batch of LaMetric device is being produced with a feature allowing the device to be turned on automatically after the power goes on again. It is completely new solution and unfortunately cannot be applied to previous versions of devices, technically it cannot be implemented.

Meanwhile, you can use some kind of powerbank with your device to make it portable and not dependent on power.


Many supercaps offer 5v - the same as USB, so why not make a little UPS of sorts to keep your LaMetric on during a power glitch.


USB from wall wart > super cap > USB into LaMetric
