How does this application 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 application 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 application
Go to Apps > All Apps.
Under Wi-Fi, find Ubiquiti UniFi. Click “Install” and then “Configure”.
Whitelist Envoy’s static IPs to allow a connection to your UniFi controller.
Enter your UniFi Controller URL (on-prem IP and port, or Cloud URL).Example URL: https://136.xx.xx.xx:8443
Enter your Controller username and password, then click “Save Configuration”.
Please ensure that this user has sufficient permissions to create vouchers.
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.
Select your “Guest Network” that guests will connect to.
Optional: Select Visitor types to block from receiving Wi-Fi credentials.
Optional: Send guest Wi-Fi credentials to hosts. This is useful when visitors do not have easy access to email or text messages or if they are not required to enter their email address or phone number at sign-in.
Click “Complete setup.”
Go to Ubiquiti UniFi dashboard select Settings -> Guest Control, then find Authentication under “Guest Policies” and select “Hotspot”.
