Installing Unifi Wireless in my existing Home

I will be installing Unifi Wireless equipment in my existing home. I reached out to pre-sales support to determine what recommended AC's etc. I would need but they were very unresponsive. I have a 2 story home with a full basement. The home is about 3000 square feet. We have three bedrooms on the main level two in the front of the house and the master to the rear. We have 4 TV's, play station on the second level and a desktop pc. We have an all in one pc in the kitchen and many other wireless devices (iPhones, Mac, iPad) IoT devices as well. I have attached the house plans. I am looking for suggestions on AP locations and types.

Do you have existing ethernet cabling in the house? If so, can you mark where? If not, how will you run the cables?

Hello @mykej15,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Do you have any network drops around your house?

Are you able to ceiling mount the UAPs?

Are you able to run wires?

 

 

Regards,

I do not have any network drops currently. I will be running the cables to the locations. i have access to an attack and will be able to ceiling mount the AP's. My plan is to have a wall mount network cabinet located in the basement where the ISP service some in

Hello @mykej15,


Awesome!

I would place UAPs on the following locations ( but the best is to get 1 unit and do a site survey with it )
