I'm currently using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ at a remote location and use a VPN and SSH to access the device. If the power unexpectedly goes out at this remote location (or more commonly I stupidly shutdown instead of rebooting), all communications with my Raspberry Pi are gone until I physically go to the device, unplug, and plug the Pi back in.

Is there a solution (short of buying a smart plug, powering off, and powering on again remotely) of restarting the Raspberry Pi immediately after it has been powered off?

  • Ideally you feed the PI with batteries, and use the electric power to charge them. Like a nobreack – Alessandro Schneider Oct 23 '18 at 20:22

    If the power unexpectedly goes out at this remote location ... wouldn't the pi come back up when power is restored? So really, the only scenario you need to deal with is you using shutdown instead of restart – Jaromanda X Oct 23 '18 at 21:23
