Automated house 2.0 – #14 Ubiquiti Networking part 1 – Why I’ve selected UniFi for Our new house Network
name the most essential services going into your home. Water? Varma. Electricity? Tietysti. however there’s a fair bet “WiFi” would be number 3 on the listing for a great deal of people these days as an Web connection has rapidly ended up being a can’t-live-without utility.
A wise house in specific needs WiFi to be ubiquitous. We peaked at around 50 IP connections in our last house, a blend of smartphones, tablets, laptops, servers, NAS, wise TVs, cameras, printers, DVRs, NVRs, Sonos zones, Chromecasts, energy monitors, weather condition stations, air high quality monitors, doorbells, bulbs as well as other IoT gadgets as well as sensors.
Ground Up Network Design
So then, with our new develop it’s a fantastic chance to style as well as develop a best-in-class house LAN from the ground up. right here are a few of our demands as well as considerations…
Fast – At the heart of the system I’ll requirement a new Gigabit Switch. I’m putting in one more 19″ rack in the new home so it needs to be rack-mountable too. 10gb network devices is still quite expensive as well as I’ve no hardware that supports it yet, so no requirement for it currently. We are installing CAT6a though (Augmented classification 6), so the wires will be in the walls prepared for a 10 gig future when it comes.
Roaming – I requirement a WiFi network with several WAPs (wireless gain access to points) deployed around the house, maximising coverage. The system has to be able to utilize a single SSID as well as perfectly hand off gadgets from one WAP to one more as they roam around the house. There ought to be range for other SSIDs for a guest network as well as possibly one more for IoT gadgets too. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) won’t be ratified up until sometime in 2020 so we’ll be sticking with 802.11ac (Wave 2 MU-MIMO) for now.
Modular – The WiFi in many houses comes from the ISP offered wireless router. In numerous situations this box is the only WAP in the house. On top of that it may likewise be the firewall as well as possibly the network switch too. I’m searching for a much more modular approach. Something that separates these functions to enable them to be in different places as well as have much more capacity.
Choice & Expandability – A spin-off of that modularity ought to be simple expandability. I want a system that can scale to any type of size, growing with our requirements. furthermore there needs to be lots of option of WAPs, switches as well as controllers rather than having to try as well as in shape our set up around somebody else’s one-box solution. The system ought to enable for simple upgrades as well as innovation improves.
Managed – Again, many domestic networking devices does not offer the controls or stats that I’m looking for. as well as I want to be able to quickly handle as well as screen my network from anywhere. All this points towards an business grade solution, one aimed at businesses, or at least prosumers as well as techies.
Secure – much more than ever before, safety and security ought to be at the heart of a network, whether it’s at your office or your home. So I’m searching for fantastic safety and security as well as tracking features for our network.
Cameras – any type of network that we set up ought to be prepared for powering safety and security cameras as well as other PoE gadgets directly, without faffing about with injectors. On top of that the WiFi protection it offers ought to likewise have the variety as well as bandwidth to cope with any type of extra wireless cameras we want to add at a later date. There ought to be no subscriptions required, as well as all our recordings ought to be kept locally.
So then it’s no surprise, you already understand from the title of this publish that I’ve chose to set up a Ubiquiti UniFi regional area network in the Automated house 2.0.
It was one of the simplest decisions in the whole develop so far as well as there was only ever going to be one option for our new home.
I’ve already configuration a industrial as well as a number of domestic Ubiquiti networks as well as been thoroughly impressed. The system exceeds all of our demands as well as the seamless integration of all the hardware into the SDN (Software defined Network), plus the fantastic smartphone app implies I can administer it from the exact same screen as those other systems too. I like the combination of value, performance as well as reliability as well as the constant software application as well as firmware updates that bring enhancements to existing features in addition to adding new ones.
The next Step
In part 2 of this networking sub-series I’ll select the elements we need from the large variety of Ubiquiti devices. The ones we will requirement to develop a difficult wired network with all that PoE goodness in addition to a top high quality Wi-Fi signal across allBlock -rakennetun kodin alueet.
