Aw man they changed the price from the promo that just ended on the 11th for $10 off! It was $79.99 at that time taking it down to $69.99. Guess I shouldn't complain over $1.60, but this is Slickdeals!

Reps just for that, lol! Big Grin

The lowest it's been has been $67 (other than a scam site that caught me and a few others at $59.99 - ugh).

So, I recently went all in Ubiquiti. Got a USG, 24 port POE switch and 4 AC Pros. I have the controller running on google cloud platform. What advantage do I have for buying this?

If you're already running a controller 24/7 on the google cloud platform, I would assume you gain nothing. I'm assuming that you can keep stats, etc. from your cloud platform?

It will continue to work for free regardless what happens to whatever cloud platform you are using. And cloud platforms go offline temporarily and permanently all the time. Also relying on someone else to keep this type of information secure is a large security risk.

It's not that way on mine. I searched for ubiquiti from the top search bar and the thread is listed with "Popular" but not "Front Page" (as many others are). Sorry, don't have an answer but it's not Front Page here.

Anyone knows if this has any specific advantages compared to running the controller on raspberry pi?

I have 2 pi's setup with the controller software, works great so far. (only been doing it a few days after I saw the last deal on this). Run pi-hole and controller sw on same Pi and is working great.

Not sure if there is any advantage to cloud key other than support/ease of use. Rolling your own pi costs less and gives lots of versatility.

Been waiting for the cloud key to go down in price. Will now pair with my UniFi setup which includes the usg router 8 port 60w switch and ac pro AP. Ubiquiti beats the crap out of consumer grade equipment.

Do you have links to what I need to buy to do this? Never used pi, looks like it's a naked board I have to build?

They sell kits on amazon and elsewhere that come with the board, case, power supply and even micro sd card if you don't have your own stash of them. Here is one example...

Raspberry Pi 3 Desktop Starter Kit (16Gb, White) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CI58...mAbX3WM477
