UniFi Network Server for Mac (formerly UniFi Network Controller for Mac) is a professional device manager tool that enables owners of Ubiquiti hardware devices to easily manage them remotely and access a wide array of diagnostic and visualization tools.

Built from the ground up by Ubiquiti Networks, a large manufacturer of wireless data communication and wireless broadband products, this single app can be used for the complete management of a wide array of devices found inside your home, business, or organization. Because of its focus on larger enterprise products and networks, this app is fully ready to handle an incredibly large number of devices with top-of-the-line services for data monitoring, security, analytics, reports, and more.

After installing UniFi Network on your macOS and logging into the Ubiquity online service using your username and password, you will find out that this network management suite does not have its own standalone app window, but is instead accessible via your web browser.

Key Features
  • Centralized Management: Control all UniFi devices from a single interface.
  • Device Configuration: Easily configure network settings, SSIDs, VLANs, and more.
  • Monitoring and Analytics: Real-time monitoring of network performance and device health.
  • Guest Portal: Create customizable guest portals with authentication and voucher support.
  • Multi-Site Management: Manage multiple sites or locations from one dashboard.
  • Security: Implement firewall rules, VPNs, and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS).
  • Automated Firmware Updates: Keep devices up-to-date with scheduled firmware updates.
  • Scalability: Designed to scale with growing network infrastructure.
The interface is sleek, modern, and intuitive, with six main tab icons located on the left, and a large data listing, diagnostic, and configuration area taking the majority of the app area. The entire visual style of the app is focused on dark background and light-grey text and visual elements, with bright green colors highlighting some of the most important “glanceable” information.

Even though this app is not best suited for complete novices of networking management, its intuitive interface can help easily be used for handling many different parameters of the network. The app is well-suited for larger networks and has in-depth support for administration settings, domain management, and all the tools needed to extract maximum performance from your network and Ubiquity devices.

Extraction of every possible percent of performance is made easier with a comprehensive Statistic tab, that showcases all your network traffic, details for every device, client, domain, and more.

Ubiquiti UniFi Server for Mac can be used for FREE via an initial trial service, after which users will be required to pay for a permanent license. The app is optimized for macOS and has built-in support for several international languages.
