Re: Wifi base stations Indigo friendly?

+2 for UniFi. I have one inside and one outside.. The "mesh" is seamless. They can be a bit tricky to get set up... mainly because of the special app, and then not using Safari for the rest.. but I've been happy with mine and have installed them for others as well. I have 2 UniFi AP=AC-Pro... .work very well.

Don't know how they may integrate with Indigo.... but I can easily understand they desire to automate them...

Out of curiosity, what do you do with the plugin -- is it just for monitoring or do you take some actions based on it?

It can absolutely trigger actions. I have both an AP and a gateway, so all my IP devices report their Up/Expired/Down events and times.

The main thing I use it for is to notice when phones, iPads, Apple Watches, etc. belonging to people I want to track are around or not. But it also can, for example, monitor whether an IP camera is up or not.
