Create your perfect UniFi Network or UniFi Protect solution in these 6 easy steps.
Step One - Get to know how UniFi Network or UniFi Protect works
Step Two - Choose your Ubiquiti UniFi OS Console
Each Unfi Network Switch, Access Point, Router or Camera needs to be connected to a UniFi OS Console. The UniFi OS Console provides remote access, management and recording features. Please note that the UDM Unifi Dream Machine, only supports Unifi Network and not Unifi Protect. The Unifi Cloud Key Gen 2 is the only device that already includes a harddrive for data storage. The others will need additional harddrives or memory cards to allow them to record footage. There is also a software version of the Unifi Network controller if you only want to manage routers, access points and switches. This can be found on Ubiquiti's website here.
Step Three - Choose your Ubiquiti UniFi Network Gateway
This is an optional step and is not needed if you have already chosen the UDR, UDM, UDM-Pro or UDM-SE or you don't need a router
