Blocking devices based on OUI/NIC

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I have Unifi-AP at a rental cabin on a bandwidth-restricted satellite connection.  I have guests that will bring devices (Roku for example) to the cabin, and burn up a month's bandwidth in one sitting.

 

Is there a way to block devices based on the first 3 octets of the MAC address (the OUI or NIC part)?

 

I use the user group's bandwidth settings to limit guest's upload/download speed, but when you've got 8 people with 16 devices (cell phone / ipad) and then other devices (Roku / Xbox), bandwith gets burned up pretty quick.

 

 

If there's an article or suggestion somewhere on here, Id appreciate it if someone could send me a link.

 

Blocking specific applications (Facebook facetime for example), would be a nice feature too.  I don't know if that could be accomplished by blocking certain ports.

 

I'm a networing neophyte, no where near an expert...

 

Thanks

 

Radius authentication for hotspot managers

Submitted by -

It would be great to be able to use Radius authentication for hotspot managers! It would result in one password less to worry about for the users.

Email Alerts per "Client"

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I think is a usefull idea if we can configure alerts per clients. For example: I want the unifi controller to generate an email when an specific client get disconnected and then connected from the wireless or wired network. This is usefull to detect / avoid clients downtime.

Ability to do a Site Survey of available network wireless UniFi AP's

Submitted by -
Status: Duplicate

Hello,

With my newly installed UniFi AP Outdoor+ I find that I cannot perform a site survey without installing additional equipment.

The ability to do a general site survey using the UniFi Controller or some other method would be greatly appreciated, at least by me.

New option in User Groups to specify whether the bandwidth limits are per group or per user

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

It would be great if the setting for limiting bandwidth was not just cumulative for all users in the group.

 

Presently if you set a 1mb limit on the group, this means that all users in the group can only get 1mb at any one time.

 

It would be great if an option could be set against the group that would toggle between the above; and all users in the group get 1mb each.

 

Global Wireless over sites

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hello,

 

It would be a great feature to create Global managed WLAN over the sites ( choose to attach global network to site ).

After that was implemented, handle the standard global network will be easiest and not needed to open each site and configure the same wireless network if there are changes.

 

Thanks

Load alias from file

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hello,
I do not know if this is possible. I have registered the MAC address of the phone company in the DNS / DHCP.
So a devices company always connect to the same IP and will have a name "mobile-001.domain.local".
But I see the controller by the name of android. This does not indicate that user is.
This name only can change if you are the “root”… We are not rooting the devices.
It would be good that the controller could resolve these name so we can make a troubleshooting easier.

You told me that I put an alias but I have 250 users...you think other way to bulk load or association of these names in the controller or controller looks for in a dns.

 

Thanks you

 

 

Portal Customization - Welcome Text Position - Please Add "Inside The Box" Option

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I love how fast you can build a portal welcome page but one thing does bother me. It would be great if you added an option for the "Welcome Text" position.

 

"Inside The Box" should place the text inside the variable color/opacity box above the checkbox location for Terms of Service agreement.

 

This allows you to use large background images without having to worry about hard to read text.

 

Yes I could add the box to the background image and that would work fine for laptop displays but not once the background is shifted in the mobile view.

 

Thanks!

Dutch Payment provider

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hi,

 

It would be nice to add a dutch Payment provider.

PayPal use in the Netherlands is low.

 

Common use of "iDeal" is major and therefor the no. 1 in online payments. (Like the Creditcard for the US.)

Here are some Dutch Payment providers: Adyen, Buckaroo, Docdata, GlobalCollect, Mollie, Multisafepay, Sisow, Worldpay, Ogone.

 

Thanks!

UAP-AC EDU, AP with In-built speaker.

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I can see loads of potential for the new UAP-AC-EDU. The ones with the built in speakers.

 

Some features off top of my head....

 

Automatic notifications at certain times of the day.

Zoning/Groups (including AP in multiple zones/groups) useful for sending messages to specific areas and not others.

Pre-record messages

Playlists (single play / repeated / scheduled etc...)

Playing media from the device. eg audio/video already saved on the phone.

A PC app that can be used instead of a phone for more sophisticated scheduled/playlists.

Playing music (useful for shops/whole house music e.g. party) move over sonos.. (well maybe not on audio quality) lol

Individual volume controls

Ability to play different things at the same time to same/different AP's

linking to some kind of remote software or relay etc... to play an alarm. e.g. for fire, or burglary.

2 way talk

Remote talk e.g. do not need to be connect to the same network (useful for winding up Pets, Partner, scaring the cleaner into believing in ghosts)

LED linked to alert type or can set the colour (discrete alarm codes in shops maybe?)

LED flashing/changing in time with music (party mode)

Maybe an input/output port on the AP for expansion to other systems/devices (useful without any APP/software needed)

Integration with IFTTT for lots more potential.

 

I think some of these features could make this a very scalable desirable product in a number of sectors/home/leisure etc...

HomePlug AV2 Adapter with 4 Port Switch and PoE

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

It would be great to have a UniFi managed HomePlug device with PoE support.  It would be useful in situations where running a network cable would be prohibitive.  Integration with UniFi would allow the device to be managed and monitored, with the ability to configure the network ports individually.

 

Some additional ideas are listed here:

Auto Adopt AP's

Submitted by -

Can specify the AP subnet for each site, and if a new AP appears and it matches a site subnet it auto adopts and configures as per the site wireless networks.

 

That would make it a zero touch deployment when working with large numbers

Random Free Channel Selection

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Have the AP randomly pick a free channel. Currently the APs seem to pick the first free or lowest used channel. For 5ghz all APs will just pick 36 if it is open. This isn't ideal if multiple APs are booting at the sametime.
