Asynchronous api for internal IP, does it work?

Anyone know of the asynchronous api for ST rest requests work for internal IP addresses?

I’ve used the api heavily but only external. I’m trying to hit a local api (192.168…) and I get an error. I’m not actually by a computer so I can’t post the logs or code just yet.

The async API sends commands from the SmartThings Cloud … not from your LAN … so, of course, SmartThings Cloud can’t access your private LAN.

You could use a Port Forwarding to let the ST Cloud access your LAN, but that’s not idea from a security perspective.

The “Hub Action” commands are used for device access on your LAN. I don’t know the specifics of sync vs async.


Duh, thanks


hubAction, it’s asynchronous
