NAS 314: Get email alert when NAS is powered ON
I've posted this in the troubleshooting section of the forum to see if anybody else had the same issue, and apparently I am not alone. So, posting this as an Idea to hopefully implement.
I've configured both of my ReadyNAS 314 (OS 6.6.1 and earlier) to send out email alerts via Gmail, and they have worked reliably. I get alerts for Power Off, Reboot, Backup status, Drive failure, etc.
The ONLY alert I have NOT been getting is when the NAS is powered ON. This has never worked, in fact, for any version prior to OS6 6.6.1. I have not yet upgraded to the latest OS6 (6.7, I believe).
I have a second NAS 314 that I keep powered off. When it gets turned on by an unauthorized person, I'd like to get alerted that somebody powered it on. [Edit: Likewise, as StephenB pointed out, if a NAS is turned on via WOL, it would be great to receive a Power On alert as well.]
The logs do show the Power On event ("System: ReadyNASOS background service started"). Is anybody getting Power ON alerts? How would I enable it?
