What is the UniFi® Controller?

Do I need to have a UniFi® network in order to use SwiftConnect?

Absolutely not. Integration with UniFi is not required and you can easily skip this part of the setup when first logging into your dashboard. Integrating with UniFi® does offer quite a few benefits explained below. You can always enable the UniFi integration wizard anytime after setup quickly and easily.

How do I setup a UniFi® network?

Don't have a UniFi® network, but are ready to take the plunge. We are experts in networking and can certainly help you in this process. Here are some of the things you will need:

  1. A publicly accessible UniFi® Controller.  This can by setup quite easily on a service like DigitalOcean.  We have turn key scripts that we can help you provision if needed.  Alternatively, you can use a UniFi® Cloud Key Gen2 connected to your internal network with the proper ports forwarded.  If you need help with this we can certainly offer assistance. 

  2. A UniFi® access point. We recommend the UniFi-Nano-HD. It is a great access point for public locations that is competitively priced.
