Hello! I am working on a project to control my home from any where in the world with internet access.
I’ve been able to make it work in my local wifi connection but now i want it to work with an external connection so that i can manage my home from everywhere.
I found this post http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=217398.0 and Im wondering if this is still the best solution since the post is two years old. I dont know how good is to use dynamic DNS service (like no-ip).
The first solution that came to my mind was to have a web page where i can access from everywhere and from there send a message to the arduino to turn on/off, etc… The problem is that i dont know how to send the message from the server to the arduino since i dont have static connection… I dont know if there is something that handles the communication between the server and the arduino in an easy way. I read about client sockets, polling, and other things… but i dont know which is the best option…
So, the question is, which is the best option to control arduino from anywhere?
P.S. Sorry for my bad english
