    I am logged-in remotely in my live system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So to put it together:

    Every user who makes an account has as default the possibility to manage two houses remotely. One using the account username and one using the account email address, both times using the account password.

    Congratulations again!

    I logged in on the test system also.
    Fast switching is working also.

    GREAT!



  • IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lovely! Luckily the loop detection is working now, without it we were in real troubles...

    Every user who makes an account has as default the possibility to manage two houses remotely. One using the account username and one using the account email address, both times using the account password.

    Technically speaking yes but not the most user friendly option (which house is which?). Officially I'd say one user one house, if someone needs an additional house, has to register another user. The username + email trick will continue to work but I will not mention it in the official documentation. In the future I will add more flexibility but this requires some demanding customization it is not worth of it now.

    Which house can be retrieved from de egeoffrey-cli summary.
    Next to that after first log-in on both houses it is in the GoTo pulldown menu.

    It might not be the bright and shining way you envision but for me it's quite clever and working well.

    As my wive said: managing the holiday home world-wide is working right now. Now the only missing thing is the holiday home.



  • Which house can be retrieved from de egeoffrey-cli summary.

    The summary shows you the house you have configured locally. It is the one used for connecting to the cloud gateway. This may completely unrelated to the one saved in the gui. The gui as said is stateless and can point anywhere. Saved connections are stored in the browser.

    Ahah nice one, unfortunately this is not something I can be of much help 😛



  • Just to finish up the work, I've updated the following page with step by step instructions:

    I like it.



  • @eporocrail quick note on the remote access. I'm evaluating to just keeping the email/password combination as the only way of remote usage in the medium term. This is because there are many situations especially when dealing with third party services in which I don't know if the user used the email or the username to login, I just get the so called authorization token. Google Assistant integration which is work in progress is an example. The user logs in but I don't know how and because of this I will not be able to make it working consistently.
    Multiple houses would require multiple accounts, this is the medium term direction at least, FYI.

    Thanks for the update. Works for me.
