Okay, I found dynamic DNS in the settings and at the moment it switched off. It says I will first need to register with the service provider. The service provider will send me the information that I need to set up my BT Smart Hub. Sounds reasonably straightforward
Wow! What a fast response, thanks, Keith.Please forgive me, I am really shooting in the dark when it comes to all this stuff. What company would you recommend I used to get a DDNS that will work well with my BT Smart Hub? I really don't want to pay a lot of money if possible.
There are quite a few to choose from, but you need to make sure that its one of the options that are built into the firmware of the smart hub 2.
I use No-IP, but not on a home hub as I use my own router. They have a free hostname which you can use to try it, but you have to refresh the account every 30 days, but its long enough to see if it works before you pay.
All the BT Hubs support DDNS, usually No-IP, and a few others.
You should find it within the home hub menu.
The SH2 doesn't offer a list of DDNS providers like the old hubs did, so not sure how it works.
I did not know that.
There would have to be an API somewhere, to send the update to the provider. Some will accept a http POST string, so maybe that is how it works?
