Remote control for phyphox

Jepp, on my todo list. Might happen right after my parental leave next week.

This has been requested a few times before, but we do not want to allow this because of security concerns in the context of our main use case: Science education. Our worry is that this is enabled by a student who forgets about this setting and who then exposes his data school-wide or even Uni-wide. The threat is not too high as it only works while the app is active, but especially in context with your feature request below for switching experiments via the API, any attacker can simply scan for active phyphox instances with always-on-remote-interface and automatically switch them to an experiment that exposes location and the microphone.

So, since the benefits from this feature are not too relevant for teaching and not having this feature is more an inconvenience than a limitation (in most scenarios one can just create an experiment that records all relevant data) we do not plan to implement this.

This is available via "/control?cmd=clear" or did I misunderstand?

See always enabled feature Smile

Sorry that this is mostly negative feedback. Maybe it helps if you explain your use-case?
