Why doesn't my jetpack start automatically?

I purchased this hotspot to run in a greenhouse. There are several sensors sending data via the hotspot. If the power goes out and the hotspot battery dies, when power is restored the hotspot does not automatically restart. I must manually press the power button on the hotspot. Of course if I am not there then no data can be sent.

Is there any way to fix this or is there a different device that does this?

Autostart is a limitation of all Jetpacks as far as I am aware. 

What may work better is a device that is intended for a 24x7 connection like the 4G LTE router, USB Modem+CradlePoint, Router or LTE Internet Installed.  These devices are configured to autoconnect when powered on or the software they use can be configured to autoconnect.

Where can you get a 4G LTE router. Verizon used to have them but not anymore to my knowledge
