Just wanted to report back say this little switch was the perfect item for my need. It has been installed for over a month now and I have been very pleased with it. Not that it is doing anything special, it just does its job!
We are using it indoor and we mounted its own little bracket to a single gang wall plate, then installed the wall plate, then attached the switch to its bracket. It makes for a clean install where there once was an ethernet wall jack.
Everything about it is Unifi, so if you are familiar with the Unifi System, this runs like any other Unifi switch.
To get real coverage you need different lenses in different applications and indoor and outdoor options as well. Installing cameras, wiring it all up and installing software and having storage, backups etc and keeping everything running is too much work to save a few bucks.
The hikvision cameras apparently are utter crap and worth avoiding.
Anyone tried this combination? Does the power output on the one PoE port of the UBNT ER-X properly power the PoE input on a Yealink phone? We are specifically looking at the T42S.
The ERX should work if the power injector that you’re passing through is one design for the phone and not the fixed voltage unifi
The ER-X models have warnings in the manual that you need a different power source than the included wall wart if you're going to provide PoE to a device. At that point, just use passthrough from a compatible phone adapter.
Mh, is the EdgeSwitch able to run a VPN tunnel on its own? I need to connect a "remote" office to my server room. The office is in the 3rd floor, my server room in the basement and I need to run through a "public" patch room (primary cabling junction for the building).
3rd floor "remote" office -> fiber -> public patch room -> fiber -> my Serverroom (basement) -> Office
I doubt it has the ability to configure a VPN that seems like an edge device is needed for that.
It does not. That would be the router's job.
Yeah, could have been. Probably the same software behind the scenes etc.
Enhanced PoE use Cisco Discovery Protocol to auto-negotiate a power level in excess of 15.4W per port.
The Cisco Enhanced PoE switch informs the powered device (PD) of the power level it is capable of providing, and the powered device then selects the appropriate power level.
