The OpenGarage unit can communicate with the outside world – I get Open/Close notifications if I am outside my network. It is also connecting to my LAN just fine. When my phone is connected to the same LAN as my OG unit, the Blynk widget works perfectly.
Just to be on the safe side I verified MAC filtering is off. I just tried forwarding 8442 directly to my OG unit, and that did not help either.
Anything else to recommend?
