Problem with logs

I don't use hosts.allow. I use the AllowUsers directive in the sshd.conf file to limit the actual username/ip combinations. As a rule, I also close port 22 on the router. When I need external access (e.g. when I am travelling) I will open some other port and have sshd "Listen" on that port as well. At that time, I will add an obscure username to AllowUsers with any ip address. Of course, I use the custom port to login.
Prior to implementing this setup, I used to get frequent daily login attempts. Now I don't get any.
Thanks for your feedback.
