Hi, I would like to turn on an LED (for start) using HTTP request and ESP (nodeMCU to be more precisely). I built an app that would control the requests, but i have a problem: I have to be connected to the same network that the ESP is connected to. One way to solve this problem is to make Port Forwarding inside the router, but i don't want this solution. The other way i thought of was to make the ESP a server and send the request to it, but im not sure that it can happen. Other solution is to make both esp and androind app clients, and open a free-host (for now) server that will handle the request.
How is that sounds to you? do you have any other better solution? do you know of a free-host that enables HTTP requests?
Thanks in advance
