As this is somewhat a nerd group for Apple I am sure there are also some Network Geeks around their Apple environment and I was wondering what other people are using at their home network to have things up and running, shared, secured and connected all over
Here is my setup:
- A Synology NAS Server DS412+ with 16TB (mirroring providing 8TB capacity) - an old system, which needs to replaced not too far off and then I will use the DS412+ as a backup system to the new server. I am mostly using a private cloud setup except for those systems that do not support WebDAV (which I think should not be allowed today, WebDAV is imho a minimum requirement for every app developer that supports sync).
- A Draytek Vigor 130 which I am using only as a modem to my provider.
- A Unify Security Gateway (USG), which is delivering my router functionality
- A Unifi Switch 16 POE - I never thought that I would need 16 ports, but now it seems that I have to upgrade pretty soon
- Two Unifi AP-AC-Pro installed in two locations to provide sufficient network at home
I am considering getting the new Unifi Cloud Key Gen2 with the internal disk.
Various systems are directly Ethernet connected to the Switch (their performance is insufficient via WLan):
- Apple TV
- Sony Playstation
- Synology NAS
- iMAC (both Ethernet cabling & Wireless)
- The Set-Top-Box from the local TV Network (Deutsche Telekom, Media Receiver)
Additionally I have added two home automation bridges to the system - Hue & Tado (thermostat), additionally to home automation I have various Sonos speakers (the prior version so I cannot add them to AirPlay ), two Echos and two Homepods.
All cabling goes though a Patchpanel and all is set up in a Server Rack Cabinet.
Anybody interested sharing their setup?
