For those performing cryptomining at a relatively low capacity, there are various small-scale hardware options that are inexpensive, but also somewhat basic in their functions.
Smart plugs, for example, can be used to shut down a computer remotely for either security or energy-saving reasons.
For many miners, a common problem is their rig freezing at an unfortunate time.
To combat this, a smart Wi-Fi plug allows users to turn their Wi-Fi off and on remotely via their smartphone.
It also enables users to monitor the energy usage of their rigs at home, which can better help miners calculate their ROI. Hardware options can provide simple, cost-efficient solutions for remote access to mining rigs.
