Remote access Card

Does anyone know of a fairly cheap remote access card that will work for a white box system? I had my media server lock up while I was at work and would love the ability to reboot/access it remotely when it is locked up. I am basically looking for something like a Dell’s idrac.

“Cheap” is highly relative. But the pikvm exists. And I don’t know them off the top of my head but searching pikvm on YouTube should yield the videos about promising alternative devices fairly readily.

I did see the PiKVM card build but how would that work for power cycling the system? If the system was safe to power off because of a power outage would that be able to power it back on? I know with a DRAC that is an option.

They get directly wired in to the power pins to control power

Yeah, the RPI KVM appears to do what I am wanting. I will have to do some more research to see if I could use a RPI3 for this project since I have one sitting around after updating to the RPI4.
