My new home setup

    Hello UniFi community.

    I’d like to share my new home network setup with you ;)


    1x US-24-250W

    1x US-24

    1x USG

    2x UAP-AC-Lite

    1x UAP-AC-LR

    1x UAP-IW

    1x Picostation M2-HP (sadly stopped working with UniFi FW after controller 5.3.X)

    The controller runs on an Intel NUC 5i3RYH on an ESXi appliance together with several other services.

    For storage I use a Synology DS1815+ equipped with 16TB HDDs in raid 5. The NAS is connected over LAG so the bandwidth is 6Gb/s :). Sadly Synology doesn’t support multiple VLANs on a single interface. So the fourth Port goes into a tagged port of the US-24 and provides PXE boot to my clients.





    This switch is the last non-UniFi network gear in my setup. I'm looking forward to get a US-8 for replace :)


    I hope you'd enjoyed this short tour.  :)

    Thanks for the write-up.  I particularly liked this bit: 'Greetings from Austria. (No kangaroos!)'.  Well said.  ;-)

    Thank you :)

    The US-24 (upper switch) has 68°C at fan level 0. The US-24-250W has 58°C at fan level 2.

    The average temperature in the rack is about 30°C.

    Nice, but do you have an coolingfan in your Rack? The USG will bevome very hot in this position without cooling…

    I have two 80mm fans on top of the rack. The USG gets quite hot but as long as I can touch it without burnung my fingers I thinks it's fine ;)
