UniFi Access - Monitor Door Location Status and Enable DPS Alerts

UniFi Access allows admins to remotely monitor door lock status and use Door Position Status (DPS) to identify unauthorized or prolonged openings. DPS detects the open or closed status of a door and then sends the status to your Door Access system.

By activating Identity Enterprise, you can select to notify admins of unauthorized or prolonged door openings.


Connect a DPS to a UA Hub by following the UA-Hub Quick Start Guide. It’s recommended to connect the DPS to our Access Lock Magnetic for optimal user experience.
