If you do not have people coming to the property than the commercial zoning rules do not apply.
Zoning Codes as they pertain to Home Based Businesses address the following types of issues:
1) Physical Changes to the Appearance of Your Home – Most zoning codes:
Prohibit exterior physical changes to the home for the purposes of conducting business
Prohibit outside business activities, storage, or displays
Prohibit signage or commercial vehicles
2) Traffic Issues:
Restrict the numbers of visitors to a home-based business
Restrict the number of employees working in the home or prohibit employees altogether
Restrict business parking or require that additional parking be provided
3) External Effects or Nuisances:
Restrict or prohibit nuisance impacts (e.g., noise, odors, glare)
Prohibit use or storage of hazardous materials
Since none of these elements exist in the type of work you are doing there is no basis to apply the Zoning Code to prohibit it or restrict it.
Here is a link to the Code:
Finally, under the Landlord Tenant Law you are entitled to the "Quiet Enjoyment" of your home. Therefore, unless you are violating your lease, or creating a nuisance or disturbance, it is none of the landlord's business what you do in your home.
