How would I consider a device as "on the same network" when it's connected to a different network?

AmpliFi does not support editing firewall configurations, and cannot be disabled unless you place the router in bridge mode. This means you probably cannot use it as just a router and most likely cannot be used in the way you want.
But, lets hypothetically say you could set up the firewall rules to allow anything end everything through. You would assign an IP address to the AmpliFi device, then go to your pfsense admin and set up a static route to route the traffic from your pfsense subnet to the AmpliFi subnet. You would also have to set up a route on the AmpliFi side as well. Once this is done you need to decide if you want the routers to filter the traffic or bypass the NAT and filtering rules. The fastest on the pfsense side would be to go to \`System / Advanced / Firewall & NAT\` and check the \`Bypass firewall rules for traffic on the same interface\` as this will bypass any rules since the AmpliFi routes are on the same interface. What options you need to do on the AmpliFi side, I have no idea. If you want to control or block traffic on the wifi device then you will need to look into setting up proper firewall rules.
Another option is use another device as the router. If you have a pfsense box with multiple interfaces, set one up as your router, put the Alien in bridge mode, and attempt to use pfsense to pick up the slack on the features you will lose from the Alien.
Thank you very much for this. It is as you say there's no option to configure the firewall for Alien. But I learned something from it thanks.
