I have been tinkering with Home Assistant recently and have found great use in their AsusWRT device tracker.
This is working perfectly for detecting the 3 iPhones in our home.
What is does is connect to the router over SSH (with password or ssh-key) and execute some scripts. I haven’t reversed engineerd this, but am wondering if someone has similar functionality working in openhab. Or if anyone is currently developing a dedicated one.
I’m currently looking into that, but unfortunately I don’t have the knowledge to port it. It’s weird that nobody cares about it, since ASUS routers are pretty common and it’s a great way of detecting presence.
Is anyone interested in it?
(sorry for the bump, but I wanted to ask that exact question)
If you have an ASUS router that supports ddwrt you gain SNMP support and then can review instructions on how I query my network equipment for detection.
