UniFi App Introduction


The UniFi app operates identically on both Android and iOS platforms. The UniFi Mobile App allows users to manage their network via standalone mode, or controller mode.


Standalone Mode


Back to Top

Standalone mode is used for simple configurations, typically single SSID with no special features, although it is possible to manage and configure multiple APs using SSO credentials. Devices are only visible in Standalone Mode when the AP has not been adopted to a controller and your mobile device is connected to that AP’s network. The following animation gives a brief demonstration of Standalone Mode—including QR Scanning and Firmware update capabilities.


Controller Mode

Controller mode is straightforward in the sense that the app will connect to your existing controller. The mobile app controller features all the same functions and options as the traditional software controller. You can have a list of saved controllers, and also login to your SSO/community account to manage any controller(s) you have connected to your unifi.ubnt.com account.

The following animated gif briefly demonstrates Mobile App features available in Direct Access controller mode—including L3 adoption and speed testing. L3 adoption and speed testing are not available via cloud connection.
