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.”

“such a simple program yet it's so handy at work and home I use It every day! and it's cool to be able to turn ur pc/mac off from your iPhone or iPod :D”
“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.”

Ratings and Reviews
Great App, Excellent Communication
The Shutdown and WoL feature works perfectly. Of course the latter requires some moderate modifications to the bios and NIC driver; however some cursory Internet research will reveal how simple those modifications actually are (semi-pro tip: your computer must be hardwired to your modem or router in order for WoL to work). I also wanted to say how pleased I was with the swiftness in their reply to an inquiry I had about smart home integration (in case you are wondering IFTTT is out of the question for security reasons, completely understood). Overall, well done and I will be keeping an eye out for other developing apps from this company. Cheers!
This app works flawlessly. I first used the free version, I liked it so much that I decided to buy and help support you guys. I highly recommend this app. Oh and also I would like to suggest perhaps in the new update or even if your planning on updating this I would very much appreciate it if you where able to integrate this with amazon's echo/echo dot thanks.
If you have VLC remote, you need this handy little app as well. After you are done watching a movie you simply shut off your computer with this app. You don't even have to get up. It's the ultimate in anti-fitness.
