How to access my HestiaPi from outside my house

You will need a WiFi router with port forwarding feature (most routers do these days) and if you don’t have a static IP (or if you don’t know what this is), you will need to use a free Dynamic DNS service called NoIP. Don’t worry – although we can’t offer support on individual routers, we can certainly point you in the right direction. Installation instructions on the above link.
Alternatively you can use which is a service hosted externally and is not controlled by us or you but by OpenHAB itself. Go to http://[YOUR-HESTIAPI-IP]:8080/paperui and select Add-ons > MISC and install “openHAB Cloud Connector”. Once installed SSH into your HestiaPi (username: pi and password: hestia) and type:
cat /var/lib/openhab2/uuid
write the output down. Then type:
cat /var/lib/openhab2/openhabcloud/secret
write this output down too.
Then go to and create an account using your details and the above information (UUID and secret). You can now access your HestiaPi Touch from a browser or your mobile app (enter “” as a remote url and your myopenHAB account username and password as credentials). The above steps are also available in youtube format here too.
