This seven bedroom house is rented out on a weekly basis during the summer. Often multiple families will get together and rent it for the week.
Because of this each bedroom ends up being similar to a hotel room. So each bedroom is equiped with a Smart TV, Satellite Receiver and BluRay player. And with NetFlix and ethernet ports on all the devices, it becomes important to connect them all. In addition, most rooms need strong wifi coverage.
In the old school days we had one wifi AP for the whole house. Later we updated to one AP per floor. But with connection speeds rising, we still saw weak spots in various locations and bedrooms. We've addressed this with the new UniFi AC Inwalls. And to save Wifi spectrum for handhelds, we've hardwired all the TV's, Blueray's and satellite receivers using the new US-8 switches.
Below are some typical TV locations usually behind the dresser. If the room needed an InWall, you'll see it powering the US-8.
Here's the typical toplogy of each bedroom connecting the DirectTV, Bluray and TV.
We also have a ceiling mounted Pro in the family room, and Lites in bedrooms with ceiling access.
For outdoor coverage, we use a Mesh AP.
You end up with a lot of UniFi gear on the Devices page, but this is really what it takes to provide top connectivity to a house like this.
This house was not originally wired for ethernet. We added cables for both ethernet and coax for TV's. One way we did this is having a US-8 60W in the family room with cables to the attic right above it to power both ceiling AP's and the Outdoor Mesh. Using multiple POE switches (which are now affordable with the US-8 60W), you can save a lot of home run cabling.
