I found this on kickstarter and I think it looks pretty cool. I plan on getting one for my parents so I don't need to fix their router/modem problems every other month. I know it's simple and you don't need it but......

It's a glorified... power switch? I feel like putting little labels on the power cables for routers/modems/etc. would still be easy and significantly cheaper.

Yes, that is a joke ---->
My parents had frequent problems some years ago, so I got a couple of these.
Connected one to the modem and one to the router and set them 2 minutes apart and to shut off for 10 minutes(shortest time possible). They didn't have internet between 3:00am and 3:12am but it always worked when they needed it. Now that their internet is just one 'box', they just flip the power strip off and on in the rare occasion the internet goes bad. Both solutions cost a lot less.
