That would depend on the protocol you're using, not IPv6.
Well, it has to be IPv6 if you want to address a device from outside,
not a house.

In principle IPv4 and IPv6 work the same way in this respect. They're
only the transport. Higher protocols determine how they're used. Of
course, with IPv4 and NAT, other issues arise.

Well, IPv4 would work, of course, but normal people don't get internet
v4 addresses for inside the home. You have to pay extra for them. With
IPv6 you get those routable addresses at the same price.
