How to Determine the Device Model

Back to Top

The above models can easily be determined from within the Controller, by going to the Devices section and referencing the Model column.

In some cases you may see a v2 after the name in the controller. Those models will share the SKU with original device (non v2). The v2 indicates a hardware revision compared to the original version. A hardware revision does not mean a different generation of hardware. Take UAP-AC and UAP-ACv2 for example, both models are 1st gen UAPs.
