All sharing goes via a Chandler server; you can set up your own, or use the
OSAF one which is the default - I'm using the OSAF one and it seems to work
fine. So you have to publish the collections as you have done, which puts
them on the server, then you can subscribe from home and sync with the
server. If I remember correctly when I was initially setting up Chandler on
my various computers, I set up the first one, then saved a .chex file from
there and loaded that into the other machines after installing Chandler. I'm
not sure if that was essential or just to save time with the initial
synchronising, but it worked well.

I don't use the Hub web interface much so I haven't noticed this
shortcoming, but I know that the Hub lacks some capabilities - it may be
that this is one of them. Also note that when you publish a collection, you
have to select what you want to share; alarms is one of the optional items,
so check if that collection has sharing alarms turned on. Sharing alarms
does work for me.
