Is there such a tool?

Do you worry about fire hazard when you leave home with all your routers powered on?

I just feel uncombortable leaving a wireless router powered on when I leave my home or sleep. Smile

I admit this gave me a chuckle, and I was bored, so here is my USB to TTL to Smart Extinguisher solution.
It's set to go off at 100c, and Beeker is there keeping an eye on things, he has my cell number if things go wrong.

Edit- I was just jesting mwchang, if you are really worried about it overheating mount a fan on it if possible
