OpenWRT (Luci)


This is one of the two ways we support OpenWRT. If you encounter problems, try ubus.

This is a presence detection scanner for OpenWRT using luci.

Before this scanner can be used you have to install the luci RPC package on OpenWRT:

# opkg install luci-mod-rpc

To use this device tracker in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
device_tracker:
  - platform: luci
    host: ROUTER_IP_ADDRESS
    username: YOUR_ADMIN_USERNAME
    password: YOUR_ADMIN_PASSWORD

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP address of your router, e.g. 192.168.1.1.
  • username (Required): The username of an user with administrative privileges, usually admin.
  • password (Required): The password for your given admin account.

See the device tracker component page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.

Some installations have a small bug. The timeout for luci RPC calls is not set and this makes the call fail.
