Home Assistant 🀝 Ubiquiti Networks


#68

Congratulations! This is great news!


#69

Will this mean that long term users of HASS will receive free Ubiquity hardware?

Congrats @balloob Well done!

(If you can do anything at all to get Ubiquiti away from using β€œpassive” PoE, I will nominate you for sainthood)


#71

Congrats!!! My next network overhaul is likely going to involve Ubiquiti gear anyway, as part of NYC Mesh. Yet another reason to keep an eye on them.

Very exciting and definitely re-enforces that I made the right decision with HA. I recently invested heavily with Ubiquiti for my house renovation: multiple APs, USG router, multiple outdoor G3 cameras, their 16 port PoE+ switch, and their NVR system.

I haven’t gotten everything setup and configured yet but I am very impressed with what I have and, of course, impressed with HA. I think this will be a great partnership!

One of the things I like about UniFi products is that they create a nice interface with the controller but still enable you to get under the hood to customize it if you have the need/ability - the direction I think, and hope, HA is heading in.

Congratulations Paul!

Gefeliciteerd @balloob!!


#74

I suppose their goal is to let home-assistant run on their embedded system.
Excited about that, home-assistant with ubiquiti hardware will be top :muscle:


#75

One buyer here


#76

Great feather in your cap @balloob


#77

This is great news, it puts the importance of HA up with the other projects that commercial entities have seen fit to support.


#78

I don’t want to get off topic here, but I am totally lost as to how the whole Ubiquiti infrastructure works - can anyone point me to a good overview?


#79

This would be great for managing automations: https://github.com/google/blockly


#80

@jleitao Have you tried node-red ??? It works really well with Home Assistant.

https://nodered.org/


#81

Thanks @namadori, I’ll try it out.

But Node-RED is for geeks like us! (please! no offense! :slight_smile:)

To bring HA to the masses we need a fool-proof interface for automations.


#82

It would be awesome!
IIRC there are some HA platforms that use it (Domoticz?)


#83

Yes, Domoticz uses Blocky for automations


#84

Congratulations! I’m also a Ubiquiti customer. Glad to see HA is going to be a full time gig for you.


#85

Does this mean the Ubiquiti mFi products will be supported by Home Assistant!??


#86

I’ve got a mesh ASUS RT-68U, HASS.IO running on a pi 3 (soon to be a tinkerboard), but will honestly do this the moment I can get a mesh system from Ubiquiti that has HA integrated.


#87

Great news! Hoping you can get a good motion event from Unifi Cameras! Very much needed!
