5:12: you should use ansible for the automation 😁 DO api (i.e. since they don't have an official module to take a snapshot just do a curl inside the playbook so you don't have to do logic in bash): https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-programatically-create-and-configure-a-digital-ocean-droplet-using-api-and-ansible

15:05: The security chris is talking about (even though I do agree with you as well...telemetry...) is more of a security from the companies perspective not the consumer's perspective. Probably to try and prevent people from trying to do reverse engineering somehow.

14:28: so I know this doesn't solve the situation for going off line for good, because it is another battery, but couldn't you plugin a cheap UPS where the eero is at? So, even if the power flickers it won't reset the device? her is one for ~$60 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01FWAZEIU/ref=mh_s9_acsd_top_b3Cto_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DERth=1&psc=1

14:08: no ubiquiti doesn't need cloud access to run properly 1) ubiquiti just needs a LAN connected device to run your management controller (i.e. your (Alex) docker container ( I would love to know what image you use/how you are doing it) ) 2) so in all actuality you don't need the controller after you set stuff up if you never want to change stuff again. everything will continue to run exactly how you configured it if it can't contact the management controller. 3) you are going to want that management controller though, because it will have logs for all the ubiquiti stuff, notify you of rogue APs (mainly including this for people that don't know what it is used for) 4) you are going to want to allow it internet access, because it notifies you about updates to the controller and device firmware. (mainly including this for people that don't know what it is used for)

along with reverse proxy, you should checkout bastion hosts.
