Want to use a Raspberry Pi as your UniFi Controller instead of the UniFi Cloud Key?

Those who use or own Ubiquiti UniFi products mostly are familiar with the UniFi Controller. It is software used to manage all of your UniFi gear in a single, beautiful web-based dashboard. Ubiquiti sells their UniFi Cloud Key (affiliate link) if you wish to have a dedicated device, but you can also install it on your own hardware such as a Raspberry Pi (affiliate link). You can save a little bit of money by using a Raspberry Pi (around $50-60 versus $90-100 depending on the accessories purchased for the RPi), and you also have the flexibility to run additional software on the same device.
