UniFi Access - Assign Access Devices to a Separate VLAN

Assigning the UniFi Access devices to a separate VLAN allows you to isolate certain UniFi Access devices from the main network for security. The devices connected to different VLANs cannot communicate with each other.


To assign UniFi Access devices to a separate VLAN, your UniFi Console must be a UDM Pro, UDM SE, or UDW.

Create a VLAN for Access

  1. Go to your Network application > Settings.
  2. Go to Networks.
  3. Click Create New Network.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions and save changes. Learn more

Use Static IP Address for UA Devices

If you want to assign a static IP to the device in that VLAN network, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to UniFi Network application > UniFi Devices.
  2. Select a UA Hub.
  3. Click Setting on the prompted panel.
  4. Enable Fixed IP.

Update the UniFi Access Network Settings

  1. Go to your Access application > Settings > System.
