Cloudare Access, Home Assistant and Google Assistant


#1

I am looking to use Cloudfare access to secure my home assistant box at home. Home Assistant was an API that Google Assistant needs access to. I am trying to follow the tutorial here https://techkarussell.ch/home-assistant-hardening/

Can the assistant access the api behind access ? https://www.home-assistant.io/components/google_assistant/


#2

I have the exact same question. Would be great if this’d possible.
Maybe this could work by creating a bypass rule in Access for the /api url?


#3

I think the bypass policy will work https://developers.cloudflare.com/access/setting-up-access/configuring-access-policies/

so we would just have to enable bypass policies for the APIs that the assistant needs. Everything else is behind the proxy
