Ubiquiti announced the arrival of AirVision 2 and with it a new NVR appliance.
Lets see…that breaks down to 50 days at 480P. That would be 1 camera straight for 50 days, or 50 cameras for 1 day. This is actually pretty decent. If we were to configure the cameras for motion based recording it should even out pretty well.
I LOVE the idea of just taking a tiny appliance, plugging it in and away you go. I have a feeling I’ll be deploying one of these within a month or two. I’m looking forward to it actually. The interface looks pretty much the same as Unifi’s interface, which means you will be familiar with the product in seconds.
I’m looking forward to seeing just how fast I can deploy an entire system. I also plan to do a quick start/overview video of my initial experiences with the product.
Looks like MSRP is somewhere in the $330 range. What say you guys?

I was setting up my new email and it wouldn’t for the life of me work. I found this site www.testexchangeconnectivity.com. It lets you do a test via your browser and quickly diagnosed the issue. I popped into AD and adjusted some permissions as suggested and BOOM…everything is rocking and rolling.
While I’m doing some testing with my Unifi install, I need to disable allll of the radios save for one. The idea is I kill all radios and use a spectrum analysis tool to map the signal and really see where the waves are going.
There are only two ways to disable the radio: one is to unplug the AP and the other is to SSH into the device and disable the wireless interface.
Disable wireless interface:
ifconfig wifi0 down
Enable wireless interface:
ifconfig wifi0 up
But if you have a lot of APs this isn’t really practical. So I wrote a program hehehe.
You update a test file that lists your APs, and they propagate into the listbox on starting.
When it first boots it asks for the username/password to SSH into the devices.
After that you can disable/enable all of the at the same time or do them individually by selecting one from the list and clicking the appropriate button.
When you first create the list if you haven’t already putty’d or plink’d into the device, you will need to hit the ssh key button. This will open plink and allow you to accept the SSH key for the device.
**EDIT** Updated 5/8/13 to add support for pro shutdown.
The compiled program and source can be found here Ubiquiti Radio Control.zip (427)
Have fun kids
So I’m about to do some work with Ubiquiti in an environment that has a decent chunk of Cisco gear controlled via WLC. I want to kill allllll of the Cisco radios at once so I can do some spectral analysis before I do a complete transition. I found a few commands that will help you to list the APs, then shutdown/enable in mass.
First SSH/telnet into your wireless controller.
To list the APs:
show ap summary
Take the list of APs and format them as so to disable B G N radios:
802.11b disable ApName
The trick is to really just to make a list of all your APs in this fashion and paste them in.
To enable the radios do this:
802.11b enable ApName
To disable A N radios:
802.11a disable ApName
To enable them back:
802.11a enable ApName
This will allow you to enable/disable the radios in mass, which should make your task of testing just a little bit easier.
So I’m updating syslog and thold alerts in mass…removing an email address actually. Here are a couple of quick find and replace statements:
use syslog; update syslog_alert set email=replace(email,', firstname.lastname@example.org','');
use cacti; update cacti set thold_data=replace(notify_extra,'email@example.com, ','');
In this one we have Greg(I have to apologize for my extreme tiredness in this one. I was on the tail end of a looooong sleepless week hehehe), JJ, Justin Wilson, and a new guest Justin Miller. I met Miller at the Vegas MUM and he’s been kicking around with us ever since. He is the brains for the largest WISP in Virginia and he is kind enough to share some of that grey matter with us.
We talk about:
Mikrotik CCR installs
Sensor Ninja, JJ’s new project.
Interstate sealed batteries.
A little bit about Ubiquiti mFi experiences.
Wilson talks about Bitlomat. New AP/CPE equipment.
As always, let us know what you guys think!
Also, I LOVE this freeze frame preview of Miller’s face bwahahahaha…good times.
