Reset Button

This button serves two functions for the UniFi Switch:

  • Restart Press and release the Reset button quickly.
  • Restore to Factory Default Settings Press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds.


The LED lights up blue when there is an active power connection on the USP DC input.

USP Connect DC Input

This DC input provides redundant power when the UniFi Switch is connected to the UniFi SmartPower Redundant Power System, model USP-RPS, via the USP Cable (not included). If there is an AC power loss or internal power supply failure, the UniFi Switch will draw power from the USP-RPS instead.

Power Port

Connect the included Power Cord to the Power port.
