Restarting Cameras from remote location

Base model with 5 cameras.  I travel away from the location and there is a power outage.  After power comes back on I have 1 of 4 cameras working.  I restart the router remotely (multiple times) and get a second camera back.  I restart 10 more times and only get 2 cameras working.  When I got home, I popped open the battery compartment on one of the cameras and closed it and it came back online.


What good is restart if the camera's don't come back after a power outage?  Nothing I can do from a remote location and I'm not asking a neighbor to climb a ladder to pop the battery compartment open and closed.

Is there another method to use to get them back from remote location?  Can't be just me having this problem...

The best solution is to never have a power outage. Use a UPS for your modem, router and base so loss of power doesn't affect them. In addition, the system keeps working during a power outage. This is especially important for those with remote systems.
