I am trying to figure out if it is possible in any way for me to remotely connect to a device on my home network, but remotely.
My entertainment system is connected to the home network, and every now and then when I'm at work (50 km away) I would like to activate it (usually because family doesn't know how to operate it) using the Android App the device maker has which I have installed on my phone.
Normally I would connect to Wi-Fi, and done app instantly connects to entertainment unit and starts operating.
But in this scenario would like to know how to achieve the same but from 50 km away not on same home WiFi connection.
I looked into DDNS but that didn't add up, as well as VPN but nothing adds up.
Keen to learn how to make the whole smart home work (all my electronic devices at home are connected to wireless network).
Router: Netgear D6400 Devices: AVR-x1100w, (i got couple controllers as well I'm going to be installing for light fixtures and air con). They all have web interface too.
