Is Obico’s Remote Access and AI Failure Detection Free?

The Obico Cloud free plan is 100% free! Some features are limited due to the cost required for us to run and maintain the Obico Cloud. The Pro Plan gives you full access to all of Obico’s features for the price of a couple of coffees per month. See the pricing.

Of course, since Obico is open-source, you are free (sorry for the pun!) to self-host your own Obico Server! Compare self-hosting versus Obico Cloud, or read the self-hosting documentation.

Is Obico’s OctoPrint Remote Access Secure?

Yes! Unlike port forwarding, your OctoPrint is never exposed to the wild internet when you access it via Obico. Instead, your OctoPrint page is loaded through a SSL-ecrypted tunnel. Check this article for detailed explanation.

Does Obico Let me access the full OctoPrint interface from anywhere?

Yes, Obico’s tunneling feature allows you to access the full OctoPrint user interface remotely from anywhere without configuring a VPN or using port forwarding. Obico gives you options to access the full OctoPrint interface or to use Obico’s mobile app or in a browser to access the most common features for monitoring and controlling your 3D printer.
