How to access host RPi from HA CLI using keyboard/monitor connected directly to RPi?

I have HAOS (2023.9.1) installed on a RaspberryPi 4. I can successfully access the HA CLI by using the keyboard and monitor connected directly to the RPi. I can successfully access the host RPi by using the SSH add-on to HAOS.

BUT, is there a way to access the host RPi directly from the keyboard /monitor connected to the RPi? I have tried the cli command “exit” and “quit”, but nothing happens and I am left with the “ha>” command prompt.

HAOS is a headless system, there is nothing to see. The HA interface can only be accessed with a browser on another machine.

Type this at the prompt and press Enter


Use root username with no password.

Why do you need to access the host machine?
