Hello, ISP with dynamic IP


Recommended Posts

I am new to this forum.
Until now I have been using RasberryPi to control all my Fibaro devices, but since launch of HC3 I want to change to HC3.

The reason is, that HC3 over time can be used to control my Hue, Netatmo and all my Fibaro devices in one system.
But I have one consideration before next step:

My internet is with dynamic IP only allowing outgoing connects. Is that a problem?

E.g. has both Netatmo and Hue a web interface, so I can access them in a browser or via an app. Will it be the same with HC3? 
Thanks in advance.
Regards, Torkild S

Just a small comment: The HC3 does not really support Hue and Netatmo yet. There are some rudimentary VD (or apps now) that support some devices other than Fibaro's. And with Fibaro's history of implementing VD's, I would recommend to hold your horses before you invest in the HC3.

Yes, HC3 has remote access and mobile application, but please read carefully what @Thomasn wrote...

I also have SIP that changes my IP address every 24 hours and everything is working fine. Actually HC3 updates IP much faster than HC2 after my IP is changed by my ISP. At the moment I use Ubiquiti AmpliFI router to connect to internet and my ISP provided modem/router is in bridge mode. Sometimes I have problems with remote connection, but since this setup is very new I have still to investigate possibilities.


HC3 is still very new product, so as any other new device it will need some time to became fully matured. Still I do expect that it will be flagship device from Fibaro and very good choice for home automation, especially when I port UHAS for HC2 to HC3 :-)
