What is InControl2? 

InControl is Peplink’s cloud-based device management, monitoring, and reporting platform.

The application gives complete control of your Peplink routers, switches, and access points from any web browser.

InControl can be accessed from any web browser (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, etc.) at 

Peplink routers, access points, and switches that are to be managed from InControl need to be within an active PrimeCare warranty or InControl Subscription.

The device’s warranty status and InControl subscription status will still be shown on the dashboard, even if the device’s warranty and/or subscription has expired.

If a device is no longer subscribed to any service, it will no longer be able to be accessed from InControl. (The device will appear offline) However, all records from the device’s time under subscription will be retained and will remain accessible on InControl.

If the device re-enters warranty or InControl subscription, it will once again become visible and manageable on InControl. InControl subscriptions are non-transferable, each subscription is specific to the device that it is assigned to.

When expired, InControl subscriptions and extended warranties for all the different Peplink models can be purchased on our website here: Warranty & Licenses –

Why am I seeing this message?

Each device can only be added to one InControl organization. This message means the device you are trying to add has been previously added and still exists in another InControl organization.

How do I add it to my organization?

If we (MMH) configured your router or have troubleshooted your device in the past, your device may be still in our InControl Dealer portal. If this is the case, please contact us at and we would be happy to remove your device from our portal or split our access to allow us future access to your device for troubleshooting purposes.
