Remote access via Home-assistant Cloud

Hi all, I have had endless headaches enabling secure remote access to my HASS with SSL, open ports etc. I can’t see remote access mentioned in the blog post on HA Cloud so would like to know if remote access is possible via HA Cloud? I typically use the iOS app on my iphone to view the HASS front-end.

PS perhaps there should now be a Cloud category on the forum.

They mentioned this in the podcast introducing .6 and HA Cloud. Sounds like it is a future idea at this stage only, and there was mention of the large amount of data involved which would be a hurdle. That said, the need for a solution to help us less technical types not have to open firewall ports, etc. is in their minds.

Remote access via tor is almost trivial, requires no open ports. 15 minutes setup


I’ve been meaning to try out Tor and dump DuckDNS/Let’s Encrypt. For those of us on there’s a nice add-on as well:

It works well. I added stealth mode for extra security. I don’t know if that is available for but I think it is worth the inclusion.

Stealth mode is supported by the add-on listed above
