Control4 Version: 2.9.1, 2.10.x, 3.x
Compatible Hardware: Ubiquiti Network systems https://unifi-network.ui.com/
Help and Support: https://help.drivercentral.io
Provides relay connections for all PoE devices, monitors network clients and alerts customers and/or dealers of network activity.
- Add driver to project
- Set the Unifi Address (this is the address of your Unifi Controller)
- Enter Username/Password
- We recommend creating a separate Administrator for each site instead of a single Super Administrator for all sites
- Enter the Site Id for the network
- Note: the driver will only communicate with the site the Control4 system is located on. The ethernet gateway used on the Controller must be located on the site network.
- To find the site ID, go to your Unifi Controller, select the site and copy paste the site id (located in the address bar). See picture below
- Once a valid site has been entered the driver will scan your Unifi site, load in PoE devices as relays and collect all Network Clients
Driver supports ability to turn on/off wifi. This can be done via Composer Actions
Driver supports blocking/unblocking specific clients (example: turn off Internet of Xbox after 9:00PM).
Driver will automatically send alert when a new network client is found (example: give your guests your wifi password and receive a notification when they get online)
Driver supports additional notifications for when a specific user comes online and offline (note: offline is determined by no communication for at least 3 hours).
The driver 'polls' the Unifi system once a minute. We've found in testing that the response time of PoE reboots, wifi on/off and online notifications might take up to 2 minutes before seen by Control4.
Cinegration strives to provide fully working drivers without defects. However, changes and bugs may be found. Because of this, any bug/maintenance update to this driver will be free of charge. However, due to the ever-changing nature of computer and audio/video systems, if a new version of the Control4® software creates issues with this driver, or feature enhancements, an upgrade version will be provided for an additional expense or free as determined by Cinegration.
