The UniFi Controller allows administrators to have multiple logically separated "sites" to manage groups of devices and site configurations. For example, one site could be a building on the East coast and one on the West coast, each needing different SSIDs or security protocols, both managed from a single uniFied controller. Each site has its separate configurations, meaning most all changes done in the Settings section of the Controller is per site: Wireless Networks, Guest Control, Networks, to name only a few. If a site is deleted, all these configurations will be deleted as well.

How to Create a New Site

4. Click Submit.

5. You should now two sites: the Default site and the new one just created.

6. If you wish, you can now proceed to plug your devices to your network or perform a Layer 3 adoption  if the devices are on a separate subnet from the controller.

7. The devices should now appear as "Pending Adoption" on all Sites. Choose the Site that you would like to adopt the UniFi device into via the Sites drop-down, then click the Adopt button. Once the device is adopted and provisioned, it will only appear connected in the selected site.
