New to packet sniffing and network diagnostics ..... I have what I hope to be a simple request.
1. I want to do some automation. However, I do not want to use cloud based only solutions.
2. At the moment I have not particular tech in mind but it will be wifi ... as I do not have a smart home hub for zig-bee or z-wave or what have you.
3. Thinking about starting here with this product: https://www.amazon.com/SmartDry-Wireless-Laundry-Clothes-Electric/dp/B07GQBW2KS/ref=pd_ybh_a_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=1PES8E33EBRMBXN9BDVX
4. Now it's wifi based and that means it has to go through my router to work. Which means, I think, it should be simple url based traffic. Can fiddler on my laptop be set up to intercept the traffic coming in to a smart phone and out of smartphone and in/out of my net work ( yes I'd have the phone set to use wifi data not phone data plan )
If there is a tutorial out there that more/less ( aka more ) discusses this I'd be grateful. I'm struggling to get going with automation because it seems that every Tom, Dick, and Harry company just wants you to create an account so that they can pimp your data around. I'd rather pay say $20 more for the tech rather than have to crack open my personal data.
