Wake Me Up allows you to start a computer (PC or Mac) remotely, by sending a special Wake-on-LAN network request.
You can start your computer in several ways:
- By pressing the big button inside the app.
- By using the "Today" widget available on the home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
- By asking Siri directly from your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.
The Siri shortcut requires iOS 12 and you must record the phrase you want to use with Siri beforehand (inside the app or the settings of the iPhone or iPad).
Wake-on-LAN is a network protocol supported by the majority of Ethernet cards on the market. Be sure to set up your computer to enable Wake-on-LAN support, and use the MAC address of your Ethernet card and not the MAC address of your Wi-Fi card.
