Incorporate HDD stats into UniFi Protect/Apple iOS widget

Submitted by

The UniFi Protect portal is beautiful to look and operate but it's missing a fundamental piece of information: HDD stats. Why in the world does it show me every bit of information but not tell me the percentage of the drive that's used/available? Can you incorporate those data into the iOS widget? As is, the iOS widget says "Everything is great!" and nothing more.

By the very nature of how NVRs work, their drives are constantly on the verge of being full. They delete the oldest recordings as needed to make room for new recordings. There is no point in monitoring and obsessing over disk space used/available.

This is the first time I set up one of these system and I've been monitoring it to see how long my system will retain videos before it fills up. It made sense to me to be able to monitor HDD stats but the way you responded, it's apparent I'm an idiot.
