If you currently use either one of them, enabling Redifi is a matter of changing a few settings.
Redifi uses your WiFi to show a login screen allowing your customers to enroll in your contact database and loyalty program to receive member-only updates and incentives.
Redifi has little to do with your actual WiFi infrastructure. We're not an Internet Service provider nor a hardware vendor. Our thing in a Customer Experience platform and our mission is to boost your repeat business and to help you keep your customers happy.
As a result, at first, we built Redifi on top of Datto Networking (formerly Open Mesh) platform and later extended our support to Ubiquiti's Unifi hardware due to its growing popularity among our customers.
Redifi does not support any other platforms at the moment, so if you're interested in using Redifi and have neither Datto Networking (formerly Open Mesh) nor Unifi equipment, a minor network upgrade might be necessary.
The most important thing to say is: both platforms will work well with Redifi and both platforms will do an excellent job when it comes to mesh WiFi networking.
We are no affiliates of either platform and make no profits on selling their hardware, which gives us the freedom to consider your specific circumstance and suggest the more suitable platform. All information on this page is our own opinion based on our personal experience. If you think the info here is inaccurate and would like to suggest changes, please contact us.
