What address+port shoud be used if the smartphone is connected to the local network and is it necessary to fill out the User&PWD section? When do I know that my OpenHAB App is connected? The UI looks basic with less feedback on success/no success when trying to connect to OpenHAB Server hosted on the QNAP NAS.

Regards and thanks in advance

Are you using Qnapclub Store - OpenHab ? For such a small machine it’s probably your best option. It uses ports 58288/http and 58243/https. The problem is the future, OH2 reached eol.

You can also try Qnapclub Store - OpenHab3 (I’m using it and it works very well). But I have a 64-bit QNAP with 8G RAM… In this case ports are 52288/http and 52243/https. OH3 is so much better than OH2 that I think you should try this option, but I’m not sure it will perform well in a 32-bit 1G machine. Java tends to use 500M by itself. It may work in your NAS if you only have one Java process. My experience is that OH3/Java11 runs slightly faster and uses less RAM than OH2/Java8.

In general it’s preferrable to use a dedicated machine to run home automation. I have 30 things and 30 rules that are triggered 100x/day (in total) and performance is acceptable. CPU/RAM usage are very low. But if my installation grows I will have to consider a dedicated machine.
