I have a house 5 states away and need to monitor remote conditions. I started another subject about creating a homemade device to monitor Power loss. That project is now completed with a Really Cool solution (Sounds like my Scooby Doo days). Anyway
I plan to spend next weekend up there and intend to install a SIM Router, Hubitat, a couple of Cameras, Water sensors and my Power Sensor. After I get all this running and a couple of other responsibilities complete, I’ll return home.
Can we start a discussion about the proper way to access the Hubitat Hub VIA the Internet? Access it from outside the 192.168.x.x world.
Should I Open a Port on the Router and access the Hubitat remotely via the Router’s Internet IP address and Port forwarding towards Hubitat?
Is there a smarter way to do this?
How about accessing the Dashboard? Would I need to add a second copy of the Hubitat Android App? How would this work?
I am hoping I am not the first person to ever do this. Reading other Posts, I'd be surprised if I was the First.
I know, I asked way too many questions for 1 post, please bare with me as I ask stupid questions in an attempt to get as good as you folks are...
Looking forward to any thoughts, Experiences (both Good and Bad), and Especially Lessons learned.
