More Purple WiFi Cons »

"They provide support via Chat ONLY, and moreover, they are not very knowledgeable.""A more powerful heatmapping application in the controller would assist in more reliable WiFi modeling.""Setting up IP generation for something like guest access is pretty confusing and should be improved.""If I could manage the W-LAN or other items without a UniFi switch, that would be very helpful. I have not tried, but I think some options are tied to the hardware, like the Ubiquiti switch.""Software interfaces could be improved and there is a lack of documentation.""Documentation could be improved, especially regarding known issues or new features. It relies heavily on the user community to provide support and info. There is a vast user group with support groups on both the dedicated forums as well as most social media platforms."
