How do I assign a static IP to the controller accessible from the Internet?

I have set up the Chowmain Advanced Custom Buttons driver with a few custom buttons on my Control4 installation. The original intent was to do it to create more advanced buttons for access from within the Control4 app on my phone and tablet, but I later realised it only works with T3 touchscreens, which I don't have any of right now. 

In the process of setting it up, however, I now have a webpage accessible on my local network that can be opened on my phone in a browser, set as a live widget on the Home screen or even accessed through a smartwatch that gives me direct control of and feedback from my Control4 system. This is pretty terrific!

I now need to figure out a way to make this local IP address accessible through the Internet (in a reasonably secure, password protected manner). I'm not quite up to snuff on my networking skills, so if someone can point me in the right direction, that'd be quite something.
