I have a friend who would like to automate her home similar to some of the automation I have in my house.
I have OH2.4 running on a RPi3 and use a Samba share folder and Visual Studio to edit my items and rules from my Windows 10 PC. I use PuTTY to access the Pi if I need to run updates.
I have the software installed on her Pi and won’t have an issue getting everything configured while I’m at her house, but I wanted to know the best way for me to access her setup to run updates or add rules for her automation. (She lives about an hour away, so I’d rather run things from my house.)
Is it possible to setup access to her folders even though we are not on the same network? If I open a port and have the fixed IP, I should be able to access her Pi using PuTTY, but I wanted to be able to code/update rules.
I’m a total NOOB when it comes to networking and hardware, so thank you in advance for your patience!
