Unifi / Raspberry - Label printer with touchscreen - Campsite
Reason for Installation
Antennas I used for our campsite are 3x 120° Sector and 1x Omni 360, this covers an area of 3 hectares. I put our printer setup at the reception, so every employee can simple print a voucher for our guests with one click and do not have to login or see anything from the unfi controller software or hotspot manager.

Description

Hey, I did a complete w-lan installation on a campsite for my parents. But the hotspot manager that comes with the unifi controller was not very useful and a bit laborious to work with. I wanted a very simple all in one solution like, "Press one button and nothing else" to get a voucher printed and automatically insert the information to the unifi controller, that the guests are able to join the network. I made a little video to introduce my project what I did.

 

 

Now some pictures how I assembly my parts, I am a big fan to solder all my cables.

 

The Pi-Supply comes in parts, but it is very simple to assembly.

Needed cables to power the touch and the raspberry

Raspberry & Pi-Supply and some connected wires for the "on" and "off" buttons4.jpg

Hopefully you find my project interesting! If anyone want some more information about the code, the api I used or the software installation, maybe I could write a complete "How to".

This is excellent work! What a great way to get vouchers created. I saw another user with a custom built printer for this. Just hit 1 button and boom, a voucher is printed and updated in the controller for use. These are great!

 

I recommend getting some type of documentation setup for this. Others are going to want the same thing with "How-To's for getting it built and running.

Hey, I am happy that you guys like it.

 

I will do write a "How to" but this take some time. And I have to rewrite some

codelines that anybody can easily change the necessary variables.
