Installing Ubiquiti UniFi Controller 5 on Raspberry Pi

The Ubiquiti Networks UniFi Controller enables administrators to instantly provision and configure thousands of UniFi APs, allowing for quick, simple management of system traffic. A single UniFi Controller can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers.

This post describes how to install the UniFi Controller software Version 5 on Raspberry Pi.

The UniFi Switch 48 750W is a flagship model of the Ubiquiti Networks UniFi Enterprise system. The device is a fully managed, high-performance PoE+ Gigabit switch offering 48 ports of auto-sensing IEEE 802.3af/at or configurable 24V PoE, with a total power of 750W. The device also has two SFP+ and two SFP ports, providing up to 10 Gbps uplinks and fibre connectivity options.

Managed and configured using the UniFi Controller software, the UniFi Switch 48 750W offers an extensive suite of advanced Layer-2 switching features and protocols, and also provides Layer-3 routing capability. Continue reading

UniFi device adoption by a UniFi Controller can be problematic in certain scenarios and network configurations. UniFi devices attempt to automatically inform a UniFi Controller of their existence through the use of a specific DNS host name or DHCP vendor option.

UniFi devices use a default controller inform URL of http://unifi:8080/inform. If a UniFi device cannot contact this inform URL, then the adoption process will fail.

This post describes the options, and how to configure your environment to get UniFi Controller adoption working reliably.

The Ubiquiti Networks mFi Controller enables energy monitoring, automation, in-depth analytics, machine-to-machine communications, powerful scheduling and more of mPort, mPower, mSensor and other third party devices.

The mFi Controller and UniFi Controller software can co-exist on the same Raspberry Pi, however, you must be using Java 7 (default) and not Java 8.

This article describes how to install the mFi Controller software version 2 on Raspberry Pi.
