I watched your comparison review video of Omada vs Unify
I would like to upgrade my current home mesh which consists of 3 Deco M5
The reasons for the upgrade are better wifi coverage of the house (and front lawn and backyard) as well as support for wifi 6. This could easily be accomplished with additional/replacement Deco products.
However, since I have started adding IoT devices, I would like to make sure that they are separated from the rest of the network using VLANs, which seem to be supported only on business networking products such as Omada.
Would you recommend replacing the Deco system with Omada products?
If so, I guess I have to replace the “plain” switches to Omada/managed switches?
I am thinking about placing an access point in (almost) each room. That can be costly, but on a technical note: will that cause interference or will the access points change frequencies adaptively and more importantly change their transmission power?
Another problem with AP in rooms is that I have a LAN port in the room which is currently connected to a PC. I saw that Omada AP have a single LAN connection, so that would imply I have to add a switch to connect both the PC and an AP, which seems too much…
I’d love to hear your thoughts and advice
