Securing Homey

Is there a way to block certain ports so that Homey is not accessible from the internet, only from LAN? I want to access Homey only using my VPN server from outside the local network.


  • There are no open ports to your Homey?
  • If you Block Homey to the outside (Athom) cloud you probably break a lot of normal functionality.
    from FW Updates, App Updates, App Installs, speech to text, etc....
    No there is no option that I know.
  • If you buy/have a firewall and block all outgoing and incoming connections from Homey you are good to go. You could also whitelist some Athom (cloud) IP addresses to make sure you still get the software updates, but that probably also enables the cloud access again. Haven't tested the last step yet.
