There is no universal software that does all that.
You need to make config template per router brand or model say mapping SSIDs to ethernet VLANs
Maybe you can reduce config templates by deplouying OpenWRT on margnl platforms.

What do you think?

Easiest thing to do is consolidate around ONE brand, and then choose to get both a controller and compatible access points, which basically means you'll be replacing your wireless infrastructure. Many brands tend to offer hardware based controllers rather than software based ones. Ruckus is one brand worth recommending, even though Cisco is another that can be mentioned. Depending on the size and needs of your employer, you could even look at ZyXEL products. I will not promise that the interfaces are all the same, but these are things that will accomplish what you seek.

The technology DOES exist, and I've pointed it out. Just not in the instance you're seeking, which involves different brands of access point. Most of what you have most likely do not even work with controllers.

It is just that you need to find a controller and set of APs you want to standardize around, then upgrade the entire wireless system to that.

OpenWISP and carrierWRT can manage openwrt across any manufacturer devices (as long as you manage to install openwrt on them)

Check their webpages - No, they are add-ons for OpenWRT.

what you mean?

As reading 1st pages -it will not work with dd-wrt out of the box. But probably deep reading documentation may blink better light on issue. e.g. how to install luci API on dd-wrt etc.
Either firmware has i386 PC version. you can set the lab without unmounting single AP from the wall.
