Streaming: can we login to Xbox One remotely?

A real fan of streaming Xbox One to Windows 10 as it frees up the TV for other family members and, in my experience, it has worked really well.

One question: when turning on the Xbox One via the Windows 10 app, I cannot stream until I have signed in with my profile on the console itself.  This is not difficult to do, obviously, but it does defeat one of the advantages of streaming because I then have to go to the TV and switch channel if somebody else is using it, to activate my profile on the console.  I do not have my profile sign in automatically on the Xbox because I do not want younger members of the family playing more mature games on it.

Can I, therefore, sign in remotely from Windows 10 to initiate a streaming session?
