Ubiquiti has announced a whole new product range called mFi.

  • There is a range of IP-connected sensors for things like Temperature, Current, Motion, and doors.
  • There are IP-connected RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 serial ports
  • There are controllable (and measurable) AC power ports (that at the present are not suitable for Australia)
  • There is a free controller application to tie these together.
  • And the devices are all linked via ethernet and/or WiFi.

More devices are planned for future release as the product range evolves - more sensors, thermostats, and power control.

We are looking at getting more information on when they will have power control devices (mPower) that is suitable for the Australian market?
