Reboot Command Device for Zipato Controllers

Under Consideration

I know I have asked this before, but a virtual device that issues a reboot command to a controller would be very helpful.

It would allow the integrator to issue a reboot command from another controller on the same network to get a Controller back online, or simply to fix some issue. We can do this via the settings, but as you know, if a Controller has dropped offline (and 99% of the time it is just offline from Zipato servers), this function is mute. But if we can have either a virtual device or the LAN http command to send, we could reboot a controller and get it functioning again without having to go to site.

And yes I realize that there is an option for the Controller to automatically reboot if no connection is present, but this option often has the controller rebooting for no reason. A manual trigger option would be nice.
