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
# Example configuration.yaml entry device_tracker: - platform: luci host: ROUTER_IP_ADDRESS username: YOUR_ADMIN_USERNAME password: YOUR_ADMIN_PASSWORD
See the device tracker integration page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.
This device tracker provides a number of additional attributes for each tracked device (if it is at home):
host. The first three attributes are taken from the ARP table returned by the luci RPC. The
host attribute is taken from the platform configuration and can be used to distinguish in which router a device is logged in, if you are using multiple OpenWrt routers.
Some installations have a small bug. The timeout for luci RPC calls is not set and this makes the call fail.
If you want to locally fix your OpenWrt installation, you can apply the change manually to
/usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/rpc.lua, or simply set a fixed timeout. The default is 3600.
