About the Controller

The LinITX Embedded controller is simply an ALIX board with Linux embedded allowing the installation of various Debian packages. One such Debian package is the Ubiquiti UniFi controller which is available free from UBNT.com.

We get phone calls daily about setting up a UniFi controller. A lot of these phone calls come from installers with customers who do not want the Ubiquiti UniFi controller on their own computer and scenarios where it is not practical to have a dozen software controllers such as a UniFi install into a residential apartment complex.   This created a neat opportunity to test and build an embedded controller to bring the benefits of having an always-on hardware controller to the Ubiquiti range with no need to host it on a server or a personal computer.  Although we have now turned the UniFi Controller into a hardware solution the UniFi Web interface we all know will still be available for easy and quick configuration.
