Is the ‘weather call’ referred to here a call to the OS cloud server?
Re: external IP
I’ve wonder this for a while, so since you mentioned it…
Why does the controller store the external IP of the network in which the OS resides? What does it use it for?
Also, I saw a post that suggested that since OS knew the external IP address, it should write it out to a cloud service as a workaround for people who want to access their OS externally but don’t have either a static IP or a router that can’t do DynDNS updates. If you decide to do that, PLEASE make it a configurable option.
Thanks for the info
