Cloud key off once everything runs

Hi,

A real basic question: I have a simple system w/ USG, switch, CK2+ and a couple APs; once I setup and everything running fine is it OK to turn off the CK and just leave if off until I need to upgrade/maintain?

I'm asking because I have the gen2+ CK and the hard disk keeps spinning, making it pretty hot. I'm not using NVR yet but may be in the future, and I don't need cloud/remote access also.

Thanks so much!

Yes, that will work fine.

 

The only issue is that while the controller is off you won't be collecting statistics. Assuming you don't need those you're good to go.

Hello @hoangkt,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Yes you can turn off the UCK G2 Plus, but the whole point of it is to run it 24/7 so you can access it from anywhere through unifi.ubnt.com

Thanks Glenn, but this cloud remote access is not free is it?

Hello @hoangkt,

 

Cloud Access is free, you can configure it in the controller.

Settings > Cloud Access

Cloud access to your self managed/hosted controller is definitely free.

 

There is a paid option for Ubiquiti to host your controller in their cloud but that has never made sense to me.
