Packed with Features

Use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands of UniFi APs and UniFi Security Gateways, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and provision additional UniFi devices.

Network Overview

A comprehensive overview of your Network Health is readily available in the new dashboard. Monitor your network’s vitals and make on‑the‑fly adjustments as needed.

Predictive Maps

Upload a map of your location(s) or use Google Maps to represent the areas where your UniFi devices are located. Starting with v5.6, you can also use the predictive map feature to get a preview of coverage, and to help you avoid dead spots.

Deep Packet Inspection

Ubiquiti’s proprietary Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine includes the latest application identification signatures to track which applications (and IP addresses) are using the most bandwidth.

Detailed Analytics

Use the configurable reporting and analytics to monitor large user groups and expedite troubleshooting. Advanced search and sorting capabilities make network management more efficient.

Multi-Site Management

A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi‑tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator read/write and read-only accounts.


The UniFi Controller can manage flexible configurations of large deployments. Create multiple LAN and WLAN groups and assign them to the respective UniFi devices.

The USG-XG-8 features a vivid built-in touchscreen display, to make managing your network even easier. The LCD touchscreen conveniently displays two different screens: the port display and the statistics display.

The default port display shows information such as IP addresses, throughput speeds, and number of clients, per port. The statistics display presents an overview of total throughput speeds and system details.

Power Versatility

Hot-swappable modular PSUs provide options for backup, redundancy, and DC power capability. The UniFi Security Gateway XG includes one AC/DC 100W power supply.

If the USG-XG-8 detects failure of the primary PSU, then the backup automatically activates to supply uninterrupted power.

The AC/DC module is sold separately as model RPS‑AC‑100W. You also have the option to use a DC/DC PowerModule™, model RPS‑DC‑100W (sold separately).
