Install Unifi Protect on ODroid C2

I had a conversation with someone a while ago about Unifi Protect and the fact it only works on a Cloudkey. Since a Cloudkey is just an 64bit ARM I thought I would try installing it on an ODroid C2. This is completely unsupported and who knows if it will stop working in the future... so YMMV. Insta...

LiPo Charging
Posted by xpd on 19-Feb-2020 18:39
Since I now have a new toy that uses LiPo batteries, and came with a charger, I thought I'd better figure out how to use it. Its not as straight forward as the old days of plugging in the 7.2V battery into a charger and leave it for hours on end to get 5mins run time. But thankfully, I found a vid...
