I am looking to control a door over a local LAN, that does NOT have Internet access. I’ve looked into the command line and web API, and the both seem to require access to garadget’s cloud servers. I don’t understand why the web interface would not be built into the device, and allow access via the local LAN IP via http://192.168.x.x/ (as assigned by DHCP) instead of via some Internet server.
I have NOT yet purchased a Garadget, and will not do so unless I can confirm 100% that it can be setup and operated without the Garadget device having access to the Internet.
Is there a 100% local API/interface? If so can someone point me at documentation for it?
edit: Ok, I see the MQTT stuff, but that seems to be quite complex, requiring I setup a “broker” server - I want to be able to send controls directly to the garadget, and access it directly to get status, without having to setup a whole new server application on some other machine. Possible?
