    Running HS is AWS?

    I have been kicking around the idea of trying this out. Install and configure my HS system in an Amazon instance with tunnels to each of my homes so that I can put one HSinstance up and Z-Net's into each house then HS can control all of them seemlessly. As long as the IP spaces are properly netted I cannot see any reason why this would not work? Downsides obviously could be latency and losing HS if the Internet goes down to the homes.

    Anyone tried this or researched it?

    I think it might be cheaper to run HS at one house on bare metal and connect to a Z-Net at the other. Running remotely like that will also limit your ability to connect USB devices and the like.
