Introduction

Back to Top

The UniFi Network application allows administrators to have multiple logically separated "sites" to manage groups of devices and site configurations. For example, one site could be a building on the East coast and one on the West coast, each needing different SSIDs or security protocols, both managed from a single unified application. Each site has its separate configurations, meaning most all changes done in the Settings section of the application is per site: Wireless Networks, Guest Control, Networks, to name only a few. If a site is deleted, all these configurations will be deleted as well.

How to Create a New Site

1. Launch UniFi Network, then click on the Site Switcher, found in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

2. Select Add new site.

3. Enter a unique name for the site. This is the name that will appear in the Site Switcher dropdown as well as in the Remote Access Portal, from where you can launch the application on a specific site.

4. Click Submit.

5. You should now two sites: the Default site and the new one just created.

6. If you wish, you can now proceed to plug your devices to your network or perform a Layer 3 adoption if the devices are on a separate subnet from the UniFi OS Console (or any UniFi Network application host).

7. The devices should now appear as "Pending Adoption" on all Sites. Choose the Site that you would like to adopt the UniFi device into via the Sites drop-down, then click the Adopt button. Once the device is adopted and provisioned, it will only appear connected in the selected site.

How to Import an Existing Site

Follow the UniFi - Migrating Sites with Site Export Wizard article to import an existing site (including settings and devices) from another Network application. At this moment this feature cannot be used within the same UniFi OS Console or UniFi Network host. The site to be imported must come from a different UniFi Network application instance.
