    There is no issue with authentication. PHL2 does not log normal communications, only errors and warnings. When a GeoFency post is normal, it is not an error and is not logged. Debug logging is now sent to a file, when selected.

      I used the MyHS methodology which is using my admin logon credential. Mike

        In my MyHS service, I can select “Manage” instead of “Access” and then setup users. For each user I can select which hometroller they have access to, then on the hometroller I setup each users access level. Based on the other posts here, I assume that I should setup an HS user with Guest access rights for Geofency so that even if someone were to grab the user name and password that it would only be for guess access rights?

          Randy, again thanxs for the confirmation, I feel a little better as I thought I seen in an earlier post about GeoFency posting to HS Logfile.

          I thought Paul was going to do release today, was waiting to download and plugin. Mike

            Do you have MyHS premium? I do not have those choices.

              Only initially, before the root account is set up.

                Yes, I pay for the premium ($24/year) so that I have access to two different HS systems.

                  OK. I am aware of what it costs. For those who don't have premium, they will always be giving admin level access.

                    Now, going back to this. How would someone "grab the user name and password"?

                      I have no idea, I’m trying to figure out how to best setup Geofency so that I don’t get these log entries where someone is trying to hack into my system. I used to use the ddns option (Port 5???) and luckily didn’t notice any issues but once I started forwarding port 80 using the same ddns service, I started getting IP’s blocked in the HS log.
                      Because of my limited knowledge with gateways, I’m a little fearful that I’m going to make myself vulnerable.

                      So at the moment, I have setup a user in MyHS and also in HS with guest access and Geofency URL is the MyHS link that you posted earlier. I assume there is no way for someone to grab the user name and password with the MyHS link as it is encrypted, correct?

                        If you only use MyHS for accessing your system and don't expose it to the internet through a forwarded open port, you shouldn't get those log entries. I never do. Why do you have an external port forwarded to the IP and port of your HS server?

                        As far as I can tell MyHS is very secure. It is not super secret, top secret, no one can access secure, but it is reasonably secure and you should not get those log messages when using only MyHS for access.

                          I have the eternal port forwarded to the IP and port of my HS server because I thought I had correctly followed the directions in your above post, guessing that I must have misunderstood....

The posting is still the same as before with two changes 1) it now uses your HomeSeer web server port (usually 80) so create your port forwarding rules and structure the URL accordingly.

                            I was specifically addressing port forwarding with that comment. If you are using the MyHS method posting to:
                            Code:
                            https://connected.homeseer.com/phl2api?dtype=GF
                            you do not need any port forwarding. MyHS takes care of secure communication with your system. All communication is encrypted. MyHS will also work whether you are at home or on the road.

                            If you are using DDNS and port forwarding, you will want to use credentials you have created on your HS server. You would want to give that user the minimum rights, because communication is unencrypted. Depending on how your router is configured (NAT loopback or hairpinning), it may not work locally. Most consumer routers support NAT loopback, but it is not guaranteed. A Ubiquiti USG has it enabled by default, my pfSense did not.

                            The rules are different if you are able to run your server securely or if you use a VPN. It is a matrix of options. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.

                            To over simplify, when you post through MyHS, your HS server treats it as a local connection where https://connected.homeseer.com is functionally equivalent to the local IP of your hS system, once authenticated through the MyHS server.

                              That would be really nice if you could. I use it with geofency in v1 extensively.

                              • I just installed and not sure of the server URL I used to use connected11 or connected22. Is it now just connected.homeseer.com/PHL2API?dtype=BK

                                At first I got an update failed, but now I don't even get a notification on the phone. Note that this is a different phone than the one I use for PHL1
