As you said setting up a VPN would resolve the issue,since the public ip address will be dynamic what will be the solution for this!

comment MAC filtering the internet traffic?
Ok! i did little research on what openssh is & found out that the client initiates a request and the server will respond to it and the secure connection is established! In my case the client will be the owner who is trying to access the home automation system from the internet, to make this happen i should install openssh on my home server,since the public ip address i get will be dynamic(i will be using the port forwarding mechanism to access specific devices on the home network), how do i tackle this issue and make sure that the client reaches the correct home automation system everytime!

comment MAC filtering the internet traffic?
Thanks a lot for replying! let me make it clear, I am working on my final sem project, which is to secure the path and prevent illegitimate access to the home automation system, where in only the intended user such as the home owner /any other authorized person can control the home appliances from the internet when they are away from home or not within the wifi limits to access to home automation system. If iam not wrong ACLs will work only when the IP address is static, if iam trying to access the system from internet then the IP will be dynamic right?
