  1. Copy the signin.html and index.html files into the Controller folder.
  2. Edit the aiwifiUnifi.js by opening it with Notepad or a code editor such as Visual Studio Code or Notepad++. You'll be able to add the redirection URL of your choice on the second line of the file. Whatever URL you add, you should also add it on the Walled Garden URLS on the steps above. Save the file and go to the next step.
