Unifi-ing parent's house

by ‎04-12-2017 06:17 PM - edited ‎04-22-2017 05:37 PM

So after constant issues with my parent's internet and equipment I decided to overhaul everything and install 3 G3 cameras. More pictures/videos on the way. I am not looking forward to climbing in the attic. No one has been in there for 35 years!

Equipment

  • USG
  • 8 port 150w POE switch
  • 3 X G3 cameras
  • Unifi AP AC Lite (downstairs)
  • Unifi AP AC LR (upstairs)
  • Obihai Obi202 (google voice)
  • Gigabyte GB-BXBT-1900 mini PC w/ 4GB memory 500gb hybrid drive running ubuntu 16.04 LTS (unifi controller & NVR)

INSTALLATION UPDATE

Ran into some serious issues during the install. I accidentally cut the security system cable thinking it was an unused telephone line (LOL). I was able to get 2 cameras installed with the 3rd's camera bas and cable ran.

 

I ran out of cat6 keystones and termination ends for the other camera and access point. I will be installing pvc conduit to protect all the cables and the previously installed coax on my next trip. Here is a shot from the NVR running the 2 cameras.

Nice!

 

You may want to keep in mind that running the NVR, and controller on the same system will take a few extra steps due to duplicate port requirements.

Sorry what?

 

I am running controller and NVR on the same machine, without problems?

 

What duplicated ports are you talking about? :-)

I was wondering the same thing too. I run this same setup on my Intel NUC for over a year without any issues.

I stand corrected.  Everything I've found conflicted.

Should have used two LR's Man Happy Love them to bits. Make sure none of the settings are "auto" on either of the access points.
