Ratings and Reviews
After a little research I recently installed a cloud key, 16 port POE switch, a UniFi security gateway and 4 access points. I’m an amateur and know just enough to get myself into trouble. This system rocks! It was Super easy to get going. It gives you a ton of information via the app (90% I have no idea what it is! But I’m learning) With a little Google search I can easily manage the system. Just this morning I got a STP alert and was able to easily (once I figured out what STP meant) find the issue and resolve it. It turns out that a SONOS player that was wired directly to the network was also communicating via wireless to another SONOS, wired to the network, creating a loop which was slowing the network. The system had already stopped the loop on its own. I simply unplugged one SONOS from the network and problem solved. The whole family is super happy with the new network and it’s speed (only limited by our ISP). I’m a Ubiquiti fan now!
One step forward, two back
I am really happy to see an update and it all seems to work really well! It’s still miss several features, but I know they’re coming!
The problem I actually have are the colors. They are very bright and hard on the eyes, and I’m young. Maybe it’s the OLED screen on the X, but I think they are too bold in general. They just need to be a little softer. I do like the definition between the colors though. I love the new icons/tabs at the bottom of the screen. They look really slick.
I know this is also very nitpicky, but I really, really, dislike the new app icon; of a UniFi AP. UniFi is so much more that Access Points at this point, it’s an entire ecosystem and network. I really don’t think having an Access Point as the icon is appropriate and I just don’t want to click on it. It makes me cringe. Maybe it’s because it looks too much like a weird button? I’m fine if you want to update the icon (it needed it), but I really wish it would be reflective of the whole product line. The old icon was great. Maybe just some fresh colors and make it flatter. Less is more now a days, which I feel is how the app is headed, which I like, aside from that icon. Please, please, change it. Maybe a picture of a network jack? I don’t know, but not an access point that is so nondescript, that it looks like somebody’s poor implementation of a button.
App is a nice companion but not a browser replacement
As is the case with every networking vendor I work with, supplemental mobile app support is treated as a secondary effort to their main management thick client or browser based interface. I’ve always believed this is an area where a vendor could really set themselves apart from the average crowd. Evidently it is not embraced as a strong enough competitive differentiator to warrant a rise above mediocrity. Meaning, no one in Ubiquiti sales management, or product management, believes a purchase decision will be swayed based on the merits of equal iOS app support to that of the browser.
Having said that, Ubiquiti has done a very nice job including the necessary essentials in their Unify iOS app support. I’ve found the interface intuitive, well secured w/ 2FA, and an extremely convenient alternative to my laptop for many things. When I can ditch my laptop completely, that will be a 5 star day. Not holding my breath but I remain optimistic. My last comment that hopefully someone at Ubiquiti will read.... “Thank you a million times over for finally adding upnp configuration support to the web client interface!” Keep up the good work.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the honest review! The app is a little bit behind on features because the controller team is bigger, but we are always trying to add the features that are already in the controller. Having all features that are in the controller is the target (unless it heavily compromises the user experience). In fact, we have already received many reviews from people who have ditched their browser completely and manage their network from the app only, although they might not need the full array of features. If you have some features in mind that you feel are important and missing in the app, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can prioritize those. Thank you once again!
