Would I host the buttons on the Photon itself? Or use a little Raspberry Pi to host a web page or two (intranet only) and somehow send commands to the Photon? What is this activity called? I have few to no concerns on security for this application (anyone with access to the intranet would be a valid user to turn a few lights on and off.)
What library / solution is the best to use from the Particle-supported libraries and methods?
What is the best thing to use to create and host a few buttons on a dedicated Rasp. Pi?
(If I could optionally keep my Blynk and IFTTT code running, then that would be OK also, but I could disable it.)
(When I say “intranet” i am speaking of a NATted network inside a firewall.)
Is there already a great thread on this subject?
