I am toying with the idea of getting a UDM Pro and replacing my pfsense box. The rest of my network is already Unifi stuff anyway. I no longer have a need for most of the stuff I was using pfsense for, so a lot of its capability is wasted these days. Aside from pfblocker.
Here is what I really need from the router, simple VPN into the network, basic VLAN setups, some form of filtering would be good to replace pfblocker. That is about it really. I have a 1Gbs fiber line, pretty sure from what I have read the UDM Pro should be fine pumping those speeds even with IDS/IPS turned on. I also plan to add a few cameras to my home as well. Starting with the new Unifi doorbell cam. Figure getting everthing in one box is the best way to start.
One of the reasons for doing this is to repurpose my pfsense box as a VM server. I then want to move my jails on FreeNAS to the old pfsense box. But that is outside the scope of this topic.
So, am I totally crazy to do this? The cost is less of an issue. So, no need to bring that up as a con. I am strictly looking to sanity check myself and make sure I am not somehow going to hose myself in ways I did not plan on. So, am I crazy or stupid to do this? Please let me know.
