UNIFI Cloud Key Gen 1 - Time to upgrade?

Hi! I hope you are all well-

I currently have a Cloud Key Gen 1. The current firmware, and I believe the last released for Gen 1 is 1.1.19. Is it time for an update to a Gen2? Below are a couple of the things I think will benefit from updating to a newer hardware…unless a manual update will solve these minor issues.

  1. For some reason the UNIFI version is not registering under the cloud key maintenance tab. I have clicked in the update now, but nothing happens.
  2. Will I be able to update to Controller version 6.5.53 on a Cloud Key Gen 1? As of now, I am not getting the option to update the controller, so I will need to manually update it.

I am somewhat inexperience with command line, so I will seek help with how to update the cloud key and controller manually. Any direction you can provide will be appreciate it.

Thank you!

I would retire the Cloud Key Gen 1 as I think they are now end of life. I don’t think they can run the latest version of the controller software.

You should be able to backup your Gen 1 Cloud-key, and then restore to the gen-2, and everything will migrate over.
