Turn off the computers in your house without leaving the sofa (or bed, or kitchen)
Shut down the office PC you forgot, or the iMac the kids shouldn't be playing on
Off Remote lets you turn off, lock, sleep, log off and restart a PC or Mac directly from your iDevice.
Forgot to turn off the office computer? No need to get up. Want to stop the kid's marathon computer sessions? Do it remotely.
The timer function lets you set Off to trigger up to 24 hours in the future so you can set a computer to automatically turn off after a task such as completing a download or upload or to automatically lock at a certain time to limit a child's screen time.
If you want to know whether the computers in your house are turned off - you can check from your iDevice.
If you use a computer to stream videos or audio to your living room, then you can turn it off when you are finished without getting out of the sofa.
If you forget to turn things off at night then you can turn them off from wherever you are in the house.
It's simple to use. It's very handy. It saves you the effort of walking to your computer!

“Off is a brilliant yet simple app that allows me to easily control the power state of all the PCs in my house. It also lets me check to make sure that when my daughter assures me she turned her computer off, that she really did.”
“Very simple and easy to setup. When I say simple I didn't have to set anything up. Just install the server and the app picked up my laptop straight away. All the buttons worked, it's amazing. No more having to get out if bed to turn the laptop off for the night.”
'..it's the least you can do for the environment.' App Of My Eye.
“We often end up PC's being left on overnight and this app has helped us manage this ... We have several wireless music senders dotted around the house also which feed off the desktop PC in the dining room. I've added iTunes to the startup menu on that PC and can restart the PC using this app ... once restarted I can then switch to my iTunes remote and start listening to my music without having to tramp downstairs.”

Developer Response ,
It does! (though it is deliberately somewhat hidden)
Works ok but for one issue
So far using this app it appears to work as intended but unfortunately when trying to shut down a system a small window pops up allowing another user to cancel the shut down before it happens. I downloaded this app to log my son off his computer as he spends too much time on it but he simply cancels the request and I'm left with still powering down my wifi as the Ultimate solution
Control your teens screentime!
This app is just what I was searching for to control my 13-year old's screentime. When he will not cease playing when told it's bedtime - Off Remote solves the problem. Likewise when seen playing games during virtual school! Straightforward to install and use. Magic!
