Getting Started

On first start the app tries to discover your openHAB server. This will only work on local networks and when the server does not enforce either authentication or HTTPS. If it fails, you can click on Go to settings and manually enter the server settings.

The URL field(s) might look like one of the following examples:

  • IP address:
  • Local hostname: http://openhabianpi:8080 (depending on your network the suffix .local needs to be added to the hostname)
  • Remote domain name: for an openHAB cloud account with myopenHAB

Local server settings: Please enter the base URL of your openHAB server, as you would enter it in the browser to reach the openHAB dashboard.

Remote server settings: If your openHAB instance is reachable via a public address/domain from outside your home network, these settings will be used when the local connection is not successful. Make sure to secure this connection against unauthorized access. There are a number of strategies available to provide secure remote access to your openHAB server.

Permanent Deployment

If you want to use openHAB Android on a wall mounted tablet, go to settings and select Disable display timer and Fullscreen.
