I’m interested in the current state of Ubiquiti hardware in HA
I’m looking to upgrade my home network with Hassio being a very important factor.
Currently running a Netgear D7800 which for basic use does a good job in my apartment but I find the Netgear component to be unstable, sometimes completely loosing presence detection right at that moment when automations need to happen.
I’ve looked into and tested other presence detection but ultimately went back to Netgear.
I thoughts are that it just wasn’t built for the constant pinging, authentication login and feedback of a growing IoT household.
I’m planning to move into a bigger place in a couple of years and am planning to a Ubiquiti setup… but it may be worth it to start small earlier and hopefully some stability.
I’m thinking about an EdgeRouter-4 for its its beefy CPU and ram compared to the USG which seems very popular.
What I’ve deducted is that HA has add on for the Unifi software which can do the security and management side of things and a native component for presence detection. Big Plus
There is also a custom component to handle EdgeOS presence detection.
Is anyone using this EdgeOS component for presence or perhaps more?
How’s the stability?
Should I be disregarding the extra CPU and ram in lieu of the native HA integration the USG has?
The wifi side of things i’m excluding because I can make something work for either, could even put my Netgear into an access point mode for a lower initial outlay.
Any thoughts appreciated
