Guide - Who's Home

I love home automation (HA) because it allows me to make mundane tasks happen without any sustained intervention. Just setup a scene, and let the magic happen. Generally, this works great whether it is a scheduled event or something that is trigger driven. But, every so often I have a scene that requires more intelligence than is available out of the box.

Guide - Use a Letsencyrpt certificate with Unifi Controller and Unifi Video on Microsoft Windows

I do not mind Linux, but if I am completely honest Windows is more my thing. It is just more comfortable. So generally when there is a Windows option I go for it, instead of spinning up a Linux VM. Usually this pays off in setup time, but occasionally has the pain where I later have to figure out how to do something that is well documented/scripted/supported in Linux.

Having recently setup a Unifi network and video system at my house, the self-signed certificates the services use started to grate on me after a while. Chrome will not save credentials for self-signed sites, and Unifi Video does not work properly in FireFox, so last night I got fed up and decided to figure out how to install letsencrypt certificates to both services. The following steps are how it is done.
