Hello everyone! New on the forum and new on the OpenWrt world as well... have done some simple home server projects with raspberry pi and what not before, but always wanted to make a custom hotspot router. Found Mi 4C Router is able to run OpenWrt so here I am.
My Project Idea
We barely use Wifi on my business, yet we have to pay it, so I want to share it with customers and people walking by for free, add some restrictions and make it a marketing strategy.
-Something like a Captive Portal without password, possibly asking people to write their email (And store them so I can do email marketing with the list later) and click on "Connect" but I would really like it to redirect them to my website after that.
-Limit Maximum number of users connected.
-Possibly add some websites to a blocklist preventing common porn sites.
-Add time restrictions to prevent connections outside business hours.
-Allow each user to stay connected only for 5min then having to reconnect and go to Captive Portal again.
My question is: Is it even possible? perhaps something close to what I want, I know Mi 4C isn´t that powerful so yeah. By my research seems like CoovaChilli would be what I need but I'm kinda lost.
Thanks in advance to everyone!
