Hi, i’ve watched quite a few of your youtube videos, ive thumbed up them all and subscribed.
You’ll see me on there as Spudnaught.
I was probably lucky i watched your video on the Dream machine because i almost purchased it, thinking that i just plug all the cameras in and it powers them all, but i understand now that it’s not really for that.
Can you recommend which switch i need to get in order to power all the cameras and manage them?
I will most likely have 6 cameras (all Ubiquiti ones of course) around my house.
I’m also planning on using an UPS. Have you done any reviews on UPS to use with unifi protect security systems? I just want to have it incase the super rare occurance where the power drops out at home, so the UPS would take over and i wouldnt lose internet and cameras.
If these two questions are something you normally consult on, i will be MORE than happy to pay you for consulting advice to help me set up this security system at home. I’ve already worked out how im going to run all the cables, how im mounting all the cameras etc, and im buying a large box of top quality Ubiquiti cabling made for outdoors (outdoor ethernet cable).
Anyway, i’ll keep checking back here incase any of you guys are able to answer these two questions…
so again they are:
- what switch do i need to buy that has POE on the ports so that it powers the cameras over ethernet (or isn’t there such a product?)
- Can you guys offer any advice on which UPS to buy (not too concerned about the price, it just has to power the Switch, 6 cameras, my modem and my desktop PC, that’s all).
