Unifi switch port vlan choices

Submitted by - 2 hours ago
Status: New Idea

When configuring Unifi switch ports, under Networks/VLANs, it's either all VLANs or a single VLAN. Can we have an option to select multiple VLANs on an interface? Tagged and untagged VLAN options as well?


Block Device x Time

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

Blocking a device is one of my favorite features.  When a kid isn't listening choosing their device and choosing block really gets their attention.  It would be nice to choose "Block" and choose a few time options....IE (1hr, 12hrs, 24hrs, forever)

I would like to be able to set bandwidth limits for a client or group of clients. Apparently the feature is already available for wireless clients but not wired clients.

WiFi Client Heat Mapping. Possible triangulation with the AP-AC-SHD

Submitted by - Tuesday
Status: New Idea

It would be nice to have a WiFi Client Heat Mapping built into the UniFi controller. Not sure how far it could be taken but if it's possible to triangulate using multiple AP's and WiFi signal strength. 

Support Enabling LetsEncrypt by a checkbox on all Unifi Devices

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Pretty much title says it all.   LetsEncrypt allows for trusted chain SSL certification that is automated and expires every 90 days.

For people not needing full paid for keys this would allow trusted keys and would stop the more agressive browsers that are starting to make it harder to visit self-signed pages.

The USG is great but a user friendly parent control added to its software will be great!

UniFi switched PDU (NOT mFi)

Submitted by - 4 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I've used the Tripp Lite and APC PDUs and UPSs for years. We install them at most of our clients so that we can remotely power any devices on site regardless of their internal management capabilities and for the rare occasion when a manageable device goes offline. 


We use the Tripp Lite PDUMH15NET most often, which is available in 8 and 16 port configurations. Occsionally we use the Vertical 0U models. These are reasonably priced devices but the remote management interfaces are severely lacking. 


We have standardized on the UniFi product and install USG, Switch, and AP in as many of our clients as possible. I would love to have a UniFi'd version of one of these Horizontal PDUs. or even the UPSs which have some limited Switched port management. 


I would think that this could even be an OEM opportunity to work with a company like Tripp Lite to have them manufacture the devices providing a look and feel of a Ubiquiti device and have your team provide the management interface and software to control it. 



Alerts from Unifi.UBNT.com when Cloud Key Disconnects from Unifi mothership

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

Currently, no alerts are sent when USG or Cloud Key goes down, or is restarted.  Alerts are working when AP disconnects.

Can the team modify the Unifi Mothership to send an alert when the Cloud Key disconnects and also when it reconnects?

Also, it is understandable the USG cannot send an alert when it goes down, but an alert can be sent when the USG is restarted.


There area couple threade on this, as well.

HTTP Requst for Unifi Switches

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

I would like to be able to send an HTTP request a Unifi switch to reboot a specific PoE port.


For example,  I have monitoring software that notices that an IP camera has stopped responding.  I can set up the software to send an HTTP request to power cycle the port so the device will reboot.


This would be super handy to have.

Switch to Enable and Disable Networks

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

In the Networks tab it work be good to have a switch next to each network to enable or disable the network.

Possible uses include:

  • Quickly standing up a test network that you don't want permanently on.
  • Preconfiguring a network ready to enable on your go live date.
  • Setting up failover or Disaster Recovery networks ready to quickly enable when needed. Good for VPNs.Network TabNetwork Tab



Hide "upgrade available" notifications when installed version is newer than the published version.

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Hide upgrade available notifications when the installed version is newer than the published version.  This applies to device updates as well as controller updates.


Controller example:

"Update available" is listed when the current controller version is newer than the 'available' version:

Current Version = UCK.mtk7623.v0.6.9.50d7aef.170531.1723
Available Version = UCK.mtk7623.v0.6.4.5f977c5.170420.2106
Device example:
"Update" icon shows when the current device version is newer than the 'available' version:
Are you sure you want to upgrade UniFi AP HD from to


The desired behavior would be for the upgrade notifications to be present only if the available version is greater than the currently installed version for the controller or device.


Local Firmware Distribution from Controller

Submitted by - 3 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

I’d love to see an option to have the firmware repo for given devices cached locally on the controller, so that upgrades can be done on the LAN as opposed to pulling the firmware image from UBNT’s CDN for each device. 


A simple checkbox per device category I want automatically stored locally.


Even better would then be linking the device “upgrade” buttons to my local controller repo. 


Just a thought. 

Site Map

Submitted by - Wednesday
Status: New Idea

In the sites overview, it'd be cool to use google maps to map locations across any region.

Maybe even go so far as to incorporate some type of site-wide heatmap accounting for all floors overlayed on google maps, but that's wishful thinking. A simple pin map of locations would be nice.

Backup to external location

Ive done some searching but not sure if ive missed anything


In the scheduled backup section of unifi, it would be good to select an external location, some suggestions


- UNC Path

- FTP Location

- Cloud Service (Dropbox, OneDrive)



Add bash shell autocompletion

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

Working with the default bash shell on UniFi / EdgeOS products can get quite frustrating.

I wish you could add the following paragraph to the "/home/username/.bashrc" file so it autocompletes files and some commands by pressing tab.


if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
    . /etc/bash_completion

Move Backup temporary dumps out of /run to a larger, non-volatile storage medium.

Submitted by - 2 weeks ago
Status: New Idea

This seems a bit awkward to post this, but it seems that some users are having issues with the automated backups dumping  to /run which is a tmpfs with a very small footprint. If the backup fails, due to space exhaustion, the temporary files are also not cleaned up. If any other services are using /run for anything, this could also corrupt their functioning. Maybe it would be a wise idea to move the location where temporary files for backups are stored to a different location, such as a subdirectory of opt? Maybe create /opt/tmp or /opt/run?

UniFi Desktop AP

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

We have a bunch of teleworkers who are connected into our head office (via site-to-site VPN). We have Unifi APs at our office, however are stuck finding a Unifi product we could use at these locations that doesn't require mounting to a wall/ceiling.


It would be great if Ubiquiti could produce a desktop AP (something like the AirCube ISP, with the hardware of the UAP-IW), so we could provide wifi to locations where mounting an AP is not feasible.
