  1. Glad it worked and you managed to solve it.
  2. So you managed to solve the problem ?
  3. Are you able to login to the device with the I address ?
  4. Setting up a UniFi network can be overwhelming, but you can ensure a secure, efficient, and organized network with the right configurations. Below I'll walk you through essential settings for VLANs, switch ports, Wi-Fi SSIDs, and AP configurations. Whether managing a small office or a smart home, these tips will help you optimize your network for better performance and security. VLAN Configuration To create VLANs on your UniFi platform, click on the Settings cog in the bottom left corner. Navigate to the Network section to access the VLAN settings. To create a VLAN, follow these steps: Click on the "New Virtual Network" button. Give the VLAN a name. Select your router. Uncheck the "Auto-Scale Network" option. This is important for selecting the IP address range. Note: You can use the standard 192.168.X.0 format, where X matches the VLAN ID. This helps easily identify the VLAN. In the "Gateway IP/Subnet" field, select your IP range and netmask. The netmask can typically be /24 (, which supports 254 devices. Change this only if you need more or fewer devices on the VLAN. Gateway IP, Broadcast IP, Usable IP, IP range, and subnet mask will be displayed. Under "Advanced Options," change "Auto" to "Manual." Set the VLAN ID to match the third octet of your IP range. For example, if your IP is, set the VLAN ID to 5. Ensure "Allow internet access" is set to true. All other settings can remain at their default values. Following these steps will help you properly configure a VLAN on your UniFi network. Create VLANs: Default VLAN: For Switch and AP ports only. Avoid using this for normal network IPs if you need separation. Private VLAN: For the private network, excluding IoT devices. This can include all other devices. IoT VLAN: Specifically for IoT devices. Note: Match VLAN ID with Subnet ID for easier configuration. Example: VLAN ID 20 corresponds to Subnet (default subnet mask, supports 254 devices). Example VLAN Setup: System/Default: VLAN ID 1, Subnet 192-168.1.0/24 (only for connecting APs and Switches, not for normal network IPs). Private: VLAN ID 20, Subnet IoT: VLAN ID 50, Subnet Note: It's perfectly fine not to use VLANs on your network. VLANs are an additional feature to help you separate your private network and IoT devices into two distinct subnets, enhancing security and organization. If you choose not to implement VLANs, ensure that the System/Default VLAN is always assigned to switch ports and devices to maintain proper network functionality. This approach keeps your network straightforward while still providing effective management of your devices. Remember, using VLANs can add an extra layer of control, but it's not a necessity for every setup. Switch Port Configuration Switch to Switch Port: Allocate to System VLAN. Switch to AP Port: Allocate to System VLAN. To configure device ports, navigate to the UniFi devices page, located third from the top on the left-hand side menu. Click on "Switch" and then select "Port Manager." Next, locate the port connected to your Access Point or another switch. Ensure that the Native VLAN/Network is configured to use the Default/System VLAN. Note: Ensure that your Native VLAN/Network is correctly set for switches and access points. This configuration is crucial to enable access points to communicate with IoT and Private VLANs within the Default network. Wi-Fi SSID Configuration To find this setting go back to the settings cog and locate the Wifi settings. Here you will be able to create your SSID Setup Wi-Fi SSIDs: Private: Assign network settings to the Private VLAN. IoT: Assign network settings to the IoT VLAN. Manual Settings to Confirm: Private SSID: Password: Use a strong custom password. Network: Private VLAN. Wi-Fi Band: 2.4 and 5 GHz. Band Steering: Enabled. BSS Transmission: Enabled. UAPSD: Enabled. Multicast Enhancement: Enabled. 802.11 DTIM Period: Auto. Minimum Data Rate Control: Auto. Security Protocol: Custom to client requirements. Note: These settings are specific to the client and do not affect the IoT network. IoT SSID: Password: Use a strong custom password. Network: IoT VLAN. Wi-Fi Band: 2.4 GHz. Band Steering: Disabled. BSS Transmission: Disabled. UAPSD: Disabled. Multicast Enhancement: Disabled. 802.11 DTIM Period: Auto. Minimum Data Rate Control: Auto. Security Protocol: WPA2. Additional Wi-Fi Settings: 802.11 DTIM Period for 2.4 GHz: Set to 2. Minimum Data Rate Control: 12-24 Mbps. AP Settings 2.4 GHz: Channel Width: 20 MHz. Channel: Auto. Transmit Power: Medium to Low. Minimum RSSI: Disabled. Band Steering: Disabled. 5 GHz: Channel Width: 80 MHz. Channel: Auto. Transmit Power: Auto. Minimum RSSI: Disabled. Additional Settings: IP Configuration: Use DHCP unless setting each AP to a static IP address is necessary. Below is the settings you can find when you select the Access point you will be able to configure the 2.4 and 5GHz settings from for AP from the AP settings its self. If you have more and two Access points look into creating groups to make changes to multiple devices at once Firewall Rules Confirm traffic rules if isolation of the IoT network from Private and System networks is required. Rule: System and Private networks can communicate with IoT, but IoT should not access Private or System networks. Note: Ensure correct implementation to avoid blocking necessary communication between VLANs. I hope these instructions help you effectively set up and manage your UniFi network. Remember, configuring VLANs, optimizing Wi-Fi settings, and adjusting firewall rules are essential for ensuring performance, security, and seamless connectivity across your devices. If you encounter any issues or have more questions, don't hesitate to seek further guidance from the community.
  5. It would be epic if you could post your findings. Learn from each other 🙂
  6. All shelly devices with be compatible with each other. The Blu wall switch 4 is simular to a shelly blu button just in a other form factor
  7. The device i linked is the https://kb.shelly.cloud/knowledge-base/shelly-blu-h-t The name confuses me a few times knowing there is the other H&T that also has Wifi. This Blu H&T only has the Paired option to a Bluetooth gateway
  8. @Linwood As @Olsche linked there is a debug app you can use to recover the device when its gone to a strange state it is currently in
  9. I have not tired the option not to have the shelly App but yes the Blu range needs a Shelly plus, Gen3 or Pro device to pair with it for the Gateway option this is just so the Blu device can have a network connection. With the updating of the firmware this needs to be paired with the phone to then send the firmware update to the device
  10. From my understanding yes. Have you had a chance to look at the API documentation? maybe something in there would assist you with some solutions https://shelly-api-docs.shelly.cloud/gen2/ComponentsAndServices/Mqtt
  11. This place is fine. Have you seen the new Shelly RGBWPM. This might be interesting for your use case. For regarding feature requests @supportadmin can you shed some light here?
  12. in what Country are you in?
  13. Correct is has new features still does the same as the Gen2 but with new additions New processor - ESP-Shelly-C38F chip with an increased memory of 8 MB Improved durability of terminals you can see more information on the new specs here
  14. @supportadmin Who can we ask for this ?
