A common question we get here at HostiFi is which devices work with our hosted UniFi platform and more importantly, which ones don't.

There are a lot of UniFi devices which do work with HostiFi, it is mainly the UDM devices which cannot be adopted.

The UniFi Network application only supports UniFi hardware, so EdgeMAX, airMAX and other UISP devices cannot be added to UniFi. For these types of devices, we would recommend using the UISP application.

Which UniFi devices won't work with HostiFi?

UniFi Cloud Gateways

Pretty much all of the UniFi Cloud Gateways can be added to HostiFi. This is due to them running their own UniFi instance onboard and cannot be managed externally. If you have a UDM Pro powering your network and are looking to move to HostiFi, we would recommend purchasing one of the UXG models and adopt that instead.

These UniFi Cloud Gateways cannot be used with HostiFi:

  • UDM

  • UDM Pro

  • UDM SE

  • UDR

  • UDW

  • UCG Ultra

Anything else

All the other UniFi product lines will unfortunately not work with HostiFi, this includes:

  • UniFi Video

  • UniFi Protect

  • UniFi Access

  • UniFi UID

  • UniFi Talk

  • UniFi Connect

Other product lines from Ubiquiti, such as EdgeRouters, EdgeSwitches etc cannot be added to UniFi and are supported in UISP instead.


HostiFi provides hosting for both Ubiquiti and TP-Link software-defined-networking (SDN) applications, with servers for UniFi, UISP and Omada. We also offer professional networking consulting, with HostiFi Pro.
