which solution to remote control ESP by phone ?

#1 Post by tparvais » 21 Jun 2020, 18:50

Hello

I've several ESP sending data thru MQTT to influxdB & Grfana via Telegraf as usual.

Nice for data reporting.

In the past, I used Domoticz when I was not using ESP8266 & MQTT. I found this solution not always stable.

I want to be able to switch on/off some GPIO's to start greenhouse watering, etc... from my mobile and see some T°, usage

What would be your favorite option ?

First a warning: Don't make ESP devices running ESPEasy directly accessible from the internet (you have probably read that before on this forum, I just want to emphasize it again). At lease include some type of VPN or other secure remote control option. The limited security that is available in ESPEasy doesn't lock it from misuse, it only avoids most configuration changes.

Have you seen this thread about an Android Application for controlling ESPEasy devices?

As the application is written on Flutter, I can build it for iPhone, but I don't have an opportunity to upload it to Store, so I didn't pay attention to Apple devices. Although I can try to build the app for you if you can install it without Store.
