OpenWRT (luci)

This is one of multiple ways we support OpenWRT. For an overview, see openwrt.

This is a presence detection scanner for OpenWRT using luci.

This component requires a workaround when using luci with HTTPS and a self-signed certificate.

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
  - platform: luci

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP address of your router, e.g.,
  • username (Required): The username of an user with administrative privileges, usually admin.
  • password (Required): The password for your given admin account.
  • ssl (Optional): If your router enforces SSL connections, set to true. Defaults to false.

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.
