LinITX Embedded PI Controller V5.4.* is here and ready to go, built up using a Raspberry PI 3 board coupled together with a stripped down version of Raspbian the LinITX embedded controller come pre-loaded with the Unifi Controller giving a hardware based solution for those who do not want the controller installed on their system.
We get a lot of phone calls daily about Unifi set up and the controller, a lot of these phone calls come from installers with customers who do not want the Unifi controller on their computer and scenarios where it is not practical to have a software controller, such as a Unifi distribution installed into a residential apartment complex. This created a neat opportunity to test and build an embedded controller to bring the benefits of having a always on hardware controller to the Ubiquiti range with no need to host on a server or a personal computer. Although we have now turned the Unifi Controller into hardware solution the Unifi Web interface we all know will still be available for easy and quick configuration.
What most people don't realise is that an always on controller is highly recommended to keep the Unifi network alive 24/7, this is becoming more true with Ubiquiti's up coming products such as the Unifi Switches and Unifi Phones which will need almost constant contact with the controller in order to function correctly. If the controller is installed on a mobile computer and a UAP goes down and looses its configuration that UAP will not come back up until it has made contact with its registered controller, this by its self creates a need for a small compact always on hardware solution.
