TeamViewer’s ability to power on a device located anywhere is a particularly useful feature for IT admins, remote workers, and technical support staff alike. When paired with remote desktop functionality, WoL is made even more powerful, allowing not only unlimited access to unattended devices but full immersive control of them too. This all-in-one service ensures companies can offer the highest level of technical support with the least disruption to business operations. This powerful combination allows IT experts to control a remote device with the touch of a button, or even from a smartphone app.
Wake-on-LAN is a cross-compatible protocol that can be used with TeamViewer on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices. This versatility ensures that any technical support offered using WoL is consistent across machines; no matter your customers’ or clients’ preferred operating systems, you can move seamlessly between them. The initial set up process may vary slightly depending on the operating system you use, but each requires only a few simple steps to get started. In addition, TeamViewer lets you wake a computer remotely from your smartphone or tablet, so that even when on the go and following a busy schedule, nothing can stop you from being connected.
