Home Automation and remote access

  • Hi All,

    I've had my little Omega2+ sitting about for a long while and now I'm considering it for some interesting Home Automation IoT projects.

    My question is this. Can anyone tell me if there's a way to access the device external of it's location? I'm talking about faffing with the GPIO pins whilst not at home. My projects require access from the internet.

    Now, before anyone goes down the "oh you gotta faff with your port forwarding etc" I'm fully aware of the access into my router from external sources, but I'm struggling to find any documentation on exactly how to connect to the device and access onboard GPIO pins on the expansion.

    My aim is to create my own Android App to switch relays, servo's motors lights etc etc for home automation purposes.

    Any help would be (desperately) gratefully received.
