Ubiquiti UniFi integration

In this article

The Ubiquiti UniFi integration enables you to easily provide unique Wi-Fi network access to each of your visitors and/or employees.

How does this integration work?

Envoy sends visitor information to UniFi, which then provisions a temporary voucher for Wi-Fi access to your network. Upon sign-in, the visitor will receive an email (if you collect visitor email addresses) and/or text message (if you collect visitor phone numbers) with a voucher code for Wi-Fi access.

Note: For this integration to work, you must collect either visitor email addresses or phone numbers at sign-in. Learn more about how to configure your Envoy sign-in fields.

Enabling the Envoy + Ubiquiti UniFi integration

  1. Go to Integrations > All integrations.
  2. Under Wi-Fi, find Ubiquiti UniFi. Click “Install” and then “Configure”.
  3. Whitelist Envoy’s static IPs to allow a connection to your UniFi controller.
  4. Enter your UniFi Controller URL (on-prem IP and port, or Cloud URL).
    • Example URL: https://136.xx.xx.xx:8443
  5. Enter your Controller username and password, then click “Save Configuration”.
    • Please ensure that this user has sufficient permissions to create vouchers.
  6. Select your network site from the drop-down, then click “Next Step”.
    • Please ensure that this site has a guest network and guest portal configured.
  7. Select your “Guest Network” that guests will connect to.
  8. Optional: Select Visitor types to block from receiving Wi-Fi credentials.
