Enabling Remote Access

This can be achieved in two different ways, as the UniFi Controller has two different interfaces. We would want to enable cloud access to make managing multiple controllers and to make using the UniFi mobile app more streamlined.

New User Interface

On the new UniFi interface, log into your HostiFi or any other cloud hosted UniFi Controller.

Then, go to Settings

Next, go to System

Scroll down to the 'Administration' section, which shows the options to 'Enable remote Access' and also sync your local credentials with the Ubiquiti SSO.

Click, 'Enable remote Access' and enter your UI credentials to add your HostiFi or any other cloud hosted UniFi Controller to the cloud portal.

We would also recommend enabling Sync Local Admin with Ubiquiti SSO for added convenience.

Once remote access is enabled, you'll be able to access your HostiFi or any other cloud hosted UniFi Controller from network.unifi.ui.com.

Legacy Interface

On the legacy UniFi Interface, log into your HostiFi or any other cloud hosted UniFi Controller.

Then, go to Settings

Next, click on 'Remote Access'

There are now options to 'Enable remote Access' and also sync your local credentials with the Ubiquiti SSO.

Turn on 'Enable Remote Access' and enter your UI credentials

Once activated, you should see the 'Remote Access Status' change to 'CONNECTED'

We would also recommend enabling Sync Local Admin with Ubiquiti SSO for added convenience.

Once remote access is enabled, you'll be able to access your HostiFi or any other cloud hosted UniFi Controller from network.unifi.ui.com.
