Hi all, I want to enable public access to 2 or 3 elements of my home automation. Just lights, not security or anything like that.
I want people to be able to go to a public site, without logging in and have the ability to control just those elements.
Ideally I don’t want to expose my home IP address - Prefer hosted somehow externally but has an ‘api’ link back to the system that only has the ability to control those few items.
Anyone have any ideas on how I might acheive that?
All of the items are MQTT aware so one option is to have an externally hosted page that can send MQTT commands. I can lock this down to web host IP etc but that is still a bit scary. Is there a better way?
