i have ZERO desire to open a port on my router for the web GUI to be exposed to the whole world.
however, i already have OpenVPN setup and regularly VPN into my home network. so i created a user and setup the OpenVPN app and i can connect and all that from the iPhone.
so my concern is, that the iOS app will only be able to connect to my HA when the VPN on my iPhone is enabled. will this affect my location tracking?
i suppose i could leave my VPN connected all the time, but that seems like it would kill my data usage when not on wi-fi.
