This part turned out to be super easy thanks to and tutorial I found here.

First thing was to make my home Raspberry Pi running available from internet. Obvious idea was to go through some VPN etc.. But then I stumbled upon service called Ngrok and eventually to that is amaizingly easy to set up and there is add-on. But even simple:

ssh -R myalias:80:localhost:8123

 did the trick to expose my Hass to internet.

Then I turned to the tutorial mentioned above and done .. easier than expected.

Now it's just "Hey Google .. Activate Standing" :-)
