Why should something out in the cloud have any part of the communication,
other than perhaps telling your cellphone the current address of your widget?

(And *that* should probably have a standardized protocol/service rather than
every vendor rolling their own.  Hello, IETF?)

And even *that* can be bypassed if you cellphone is able to talk to your
home network directly.
