Ubiquiti UniFi Video Cameras, Another Cool Video Captured

I have blogged several times about how nice the Ubiquiti airVision NVR and the airVision cams are for ease of setup and great value but the UniFi Video cameras take it one step farther.  Not only do they have night vision, but the sound is really cool.  This week I was luck enough to capture a video of a bull elk bugling at his harem in Estes Park, Colorado, the home of the Elk rut.  This one needs no more explanation so turn up the speakers and enjoy!


MikroTIk RouterOS CAPsMAN

Here are the notes from Uldis Cernevskis presentation at the US MUM in Pittburgh, PA.

MikroTik CAPsMAN is a wireless provisioning and management system for MikroTIk wireless AP’s.

Controlled Access Point system Manager (CAPsMAN) allows centralization of wireless network management and if necessary, data processing. When using the CAPsMAN feature, the network will consist of a number of ‘Controlled Access Points’ (CAP) that provide wireless connectivity and a ‘system Manager’ (CAPsMAN) that manages the configuration of the APs, it also takes care of client authentication and optionally, data forwarding.

When a CAP is controlled by CAPsMAN it only requires the minimum configuration required to allow it to establish connection with CAPsMAN. Functions that were conventionally executed by an AP (like access control, client authentication) are now executed by CAPsMAN. The CAP device now only has to provide the wireless link layer encryption/decryption.

There is not narrative, just a brain dump.
