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.

 

HOW TO NOW ON GITHUBhttps://github.com/PaintSplasher/unifi-voucher-service

 

 

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

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.
