UniFi - How can I make the controller update information more / less frequently?


Whether you’re analyzing the data reported by the controller, the status of your UAPs, or need to troubleshoot the UniFi system with more precision, it’s often helpful to change the UniFi controller's refresh frequency. Users can select between 15 second, 1 minute, 2 minute or 5 minutes update intervals, depending on their need. Or can all together eliminate automatic refreshing, by selecting "Never" and only refreshing the controller when necessary.

Note: Images used below are for UniFi Controller version 5.4.11.


1. You can manually refresh the Controller at any time by clicking on the refresh icon at the upper-right hand corner of your screen.

2. To set an automatic refresh frequency, click on the username on the upper-right hand corner, and select Preferences.

3. Select the interval that best suits your needs. If you wish to only refresh the controller manually, select Never and use the refresh icon shown in step 1 to do so.
