How to Disable SSH Rate Limit for Specific IP Address

I’ve recently purchased 3 droplets w/ the Ubuntu 20.04 LAMP stack. By default, UFW is set up to allow SSH connections, rate limited. This is great, but I’m running into issues where my deployment scripts are failing because they’re creating too many SSH connections in too short of a time.

Is there a way to disable rate limiting just for a specific IP address? Or is there another way I could disable rate limiting when connecting from my WiFi or computer?

Or would I have to disable rate limiting completely for SSH? If so, is this a huge security concern?
