Exactly, but not “could” it will make things more complex for local LAN devices and apps to control the Ezlo hub.
Have them turn it off by default out of the box if they must.
But still the requirement is still there for a like for like replacement for the current Vera Luup Requests functionality that does not require authentication.
What is the security concern anyway?
It’s not like we are going to directly open up the local HTTP API port on our router firewalls from the WAN to the LAN via port forwarding.
And personally I have an encrypted always on VPN tunnel protecting the whole LAN.
So unless the Mios cloud is somehow compromised what do I really have to worry about?
Anything is better than us being forced upon with Web sockets and user auth and tokens that will break current Vera functionality and integrations we have now on our LANs.
@melih This is the one topic that is really concerning me about the whole Ezlo platform, that and no signs of a proper logic engine.
Can you step in and make a decision about this local HTTP API and if we will be forced to use user authentication or not?
That doesn’t include all the current third party Vera plugins we will be losing however. Thinking particularly of the 3rd party Logitech Harmony plugin amongst others.
But yes hopefully we are going to have far more natively integrated Z-Wave and Zigbee devices on the Ezlo platform and a whole new world of none Ezlo supported devices integrated via Alexa / Google Home and Ezlo VOI.
