Is the Mobilinc connect worth the money?

You can use the app to check status and control devices, scenes and programs without the service, though a couple of features that require the connect service will be disabled.

 

You can set up a static LAN IP address on your router, then pay your Internet provider the extra fee to get a static WAN IP address from them; or you can set up a dynamic DNS forwarding service that your router automatically updates, if your router supports that feature; or you can get another device on your LAN to email you any time it detects that your ISP changed your modem's IP address; or you can use MobiLinc only from phones/tablets connected directly to your router and not worry about remote access.

What are the "couple of features that require connect service" are you referring to?

Another way to look at it:

 

If you like MobiLinc, this is also a way to support good software developers. I could set up the port forwarding myself, and have for other parts of my automation system, but I figure the $30 each year helps someone keep writing good software.
