Does the home assistant app allow one to control your home assistant from abroad? 

Im out of town and can't seem to connect to my house. 

Is there where one buys the cloud services? 

put a SSL certificate on HA, enable 2FA and do port forwarding on tor router so u can access it from anywhere..

Easiest (and quickest) would be to get Tailscale installed. Its free and allows you to remote into your network.

Edit: There is no off the shelf way to do this. You COULD pay for NabuCasa - this will give you the functionality (USD 5 per month) but unless you port forward or get a VPN of some sort to create a tunnel there is no way natively to do it.

+1 for Tailscale. Works nicely

Intriguing. Checking out the website, on facevalue Tailscale smells  like a brokerless VPN based on WireGuard.  Or have I got wrong, is Tailscale providing a cloud broker?

I do not believe they provide / go through a cloud broker - its peer to peer. You'd have 1 ''master node'' on a network that the peers connect to in order to access that network. In my case the master is running on HomeAssistant which then provides a breakout

So I've managed to install the tailscale add on via HACS (version by frenck) and installed tailscale on my android phone. I enabled the subnet routes in the settings  on tailscale website. 

However when I enable tailscale on my phone well outside my network and I try to connect to home assistant it does not work. I even tried the IP number for home assistant server which is 10.0. 0.28

Did i miss å step somewhere? 

Tx

Edit: i only installed the version from HACS. I did not install the version inside Intergrations.

On the TS website do you see both the HA machine and your android phone? Is your HA machine the one exposing the subnet?

If you click on the 3 dots next to the HomeAssistant machine do you see your local IP range there under Edit Route settings?

Do you mean the address my devices fall under on our network? Ours are 10.0.0.x

Not sure if it's correct but on the previous screenshot I posted of the route settings it shows 10.0.0.24 toggled on. I'm not sure what this is but I believe the ip for my home assistant machine is 1.0.0.28

I've installed WireGuard on my router and on my Android Phone.
Works a charm.

Solar-Assistant enables remote access via frp:

Tailscale, ZeroTier, Nebula and Netmaker all look interesting.
The below video gives good info on ZeroTier and HA.

 

Thanks. Going to give this a try. 

Question. How come you need Frp for solar assistant? I can access it remotely through the app and their website as it stands.

You don't need frp. Solar-Assistant uses frp internally to allow remote access.
If you are accessing your SA via the App (PWA) or their Website, you are using frp.
