Discovered an air leak on a compressor coupling so everything taken apart and quality thread tape used this time then fixed some dodgy rails on dining room chairs. Installed a fire extinguisher in me shed

Then stuck openhab onto that server so I can now turn devices on/off from the phone as well!

Oh, the firewall that reverse proxies the IFTTT connection enforces encryption, the MQTT front end web site requires authentication. I also embed a key requirement. So reasonably secure.

The openhab is only accessible through a VPN outside of home so again reasonable secure. Lazy days ahead as I get smarter.
That's all good until your house becomes self-aware and doesn't want you to live there any more Tim!!
