Hi All - Used to have a Ubiquiti setup in my old home, moved, and now setting up a new home networkw w/ tp-link/Omada/Wifi 6 setup.  Seeking feedback on my setup. 

 

I will be supporting ~20+ wireless devices, Synology Surveillance NAS, 3 Dahua PoE cameras, Amcrest video Doorbell, TP-Link EAP615-Wall Access Point, OMADA EAP610-Outdoor Access Point, and TP-Link EAP610 V2 Ceiling Access Point.  So if you're counting that's seven (7) PoE powered devices.  

 

Modem - Hitron EN2251-RES (provided from my ISP so no really choice with this)

Controller - OC300

Router - TP-Link ER7206

Switch - TP-Link TL-SG2210MP (8 PoE+ Ports @ 150W)

 

I need to have the ability to manage ports and seperate the video surveillance from my network via VLANs.  TP-Link TL-SG2210MP is ~$170 for 8 PoE ports or I can go with TL-SG2428P, which has 24 PoE ports for $300.  I'll probably wait until my 8 PoE ports are exchauster before upgrading.

 

Any other thoughts / concerns about this?  Anywhere I can scale back to save some $?

 

Also, looks like Home Shield / Home Care isn't available on this type of home network.  Any alternatives, aside from pFsense or piHole?

 

Thanks all in advance for any feedback!

Hi!

 

I think you don't need OC300.

 

OC200 is good enough, can manage more than 50 Omada devices.
