This would strictly be through wireless communications (3G/4G, WLAN) so I
guess were' looking into usage of different networks and thus the need of
using a server to pass the messages.
So setting up a server would be an additional thing on top of everything
else that'd need some learning first.

I took a look what MQTT has to offer and while I'm not saying I fully
understood much about the whole subject there were also some "easier to
understand" text here and there, so that I might have a slight hunch now :)
