How to power on or re­set your PC with a wire­less re­mote.

There are a few rea­sons to con­trol your PC’s power and re­set but­tons wire­lessly. If your PC sits un­der a desk, or at the far side of one, wire­less con­trol can be highly con­ve­nient. You might also want to re­move your case’s front panel and do away with the but­tons, per­haps for aes­thetic rea­sons or to make room for other com­po­nents such as longer graph­ics cards or ra­di­a­tors.

Some cases sim­ply lack a re­set but­ton as well, and adding wire­less con­trol gives you back that func­tion. Some cases po­si­tion the power but­ton in a way that makes it easy to press ac­ci­den­tally too, re­sult­ing in swear­ing and bang­ing of fists. What­ever your rea­son for want­ing wire­less con­trol, Sil­ver­Stone’s ES02-USB al­lows you re­set or power on and off your PC from up to 20m away. We’ll be look­ing at how to in­stall it, daisy chain it to your ex­ist­ing front panel, and also re­move your case’s but­tons and ports, fill them and paint over, giv­ing the ES02-USB com­plete con­trol over your PC.
