Do you really spend that much time writing responses?
if your neck is aching from looking at the box then your screen isn't setup properly.
Personally, i dont like the idea of my controller being on someone elses Box. I have all i need on the RPi. Plus, if my internet connection goes down, i can still turn my lights off!
Domoticz allows you to join up controllers so you can still have access to other controllers in other houses. Its worth having a look.
This isn't what you're looking for, but whats stopping you hosting the controller in your own home and using a VPN or internet facing controller behind security or using a VPN on your phone?
i currently run Domoticz and have a Domain pointed at a Raspberry pi in my house. access outside the internal network requires a username and password, but recently i setup OpenVPN so that when connect to the VPN on my phone, i can use the Domoticz app or access the Domoticz web interface without having to setup Authentication.
@NeverDie I've got a few sensebenders and the range isn't great on them. i'm beginning to wonder if its because of the way the Radio is mounted of the PCB.
i had this issue the other day too when i restarted my gateway and controller (Ethernet Gateway powered by RPi Domoticz Controller).
I had to go and find and restart each of my nodes. it was rather annoying.
Is there a way to broadcast somekind of remote restart command? even if the Nodes dont broadcast to the gateway, maybe the Nodes can listen for a restart command?
you know you can install sqlite using apt?
sudo apt-get install sqlite
saves a LOT of compile time.
RF24_PA_LEVEL is currently set to RF24_PA_MAX
RF24_PA_LEVEL_GW is currently set to RF24_PA_LOW
I've also noticed that i must have written over my config at some point cause the channel is back at 76 instead of 110 where my spectrum is clearer.
i'll rebuild all the nodes tonight and see what i can get after switching channels and setting the RF24)PA_LEVEL to LOW.

I'm more of a butcher than a surgeon. I can quite happily take things apart, but fixing things usually goes right over my head!!
