Can I use it's ability when the runner accesses this in my HQ?

Yes, it is accessed whether it was found in your R&D, HQ or a remote server. The archives is the only place that you can't trigger it from.
Am I missing something because this card seems awful. Let's say you include all three, you might get the runner to draw it off R&D or out of your hand but meanwhile it sits in your hand taking up space. If you think you'll install it as a remote, whether you protect it with ice or not, it's obviously a trap when it is neither not advanced (clearly not an agenda or junebug) nor rezzed (melange, PAD, etc).
You are missing something. So long as runners run against HQ and R&D, it will be strong. Even though if it stays out for a turn it will be more or less exposed as a trap, it can really surprise a runner who get curious that first turn its out. But I will rarely play them, I've gladly had three in my hand before, especially against a criminal.
This card forces runner to care - if he recklesly runs with last click or too few cards in hand he can instantly lose the game agains deck that can deal damage. Also after a few turns of runner getting good hand 3 dmg means more than half of this good hand is now gone.

Paying 4 is not that little, sometimes it is not worth it. And bluffing with this one is not easy, but it can be done.
[but usually its better to leave it on hand so it protects you a bit when your HQ gets runned]
(unrezzed cards can be 3 difficulty agendas or 4 dificulty with one "magick trick" like trick of light or HBs additional action so even unadvanced cards are potentialy dangerous for runner, but i agree it often stays on board and becomes useless BankJob fodder)
