The beauty of having Ubiquiti is that it is all seamless. Using a cloud key, or local install of Unifi, I can fully control all my Ubiquiti Unifi devices in one portal. While I agree there might be better or cheaper options, if you are looking for better than consumer grade that is fully managed Ubiquiti is the way to go. I would gladly pay a little more to know that I can control everything on my network from one portal. Plus, with Ubiquiti you get amazing support and new firmware/patches quickly.

As much as I want a CloudKey to round out my UBNT setup, it just seems unnecessary and pricey for what you get. It's basically an always-on, low-power computer that only hosts the controller software. If it was $20 I could understand but $50+?

Agreed, thanks. I am hoping it is the newest revision with USB-C and more storage. Not that it really matters. Smilie

For those interested, it appears the Enterprise Gateway Router (USG-US) is not included in the sale.

Yeah, I noticed that. I am hoping that a new version comes out soon for home use that can handle IDS/IPS better. The current USG can do about 80Mbps it seems right now.

Just be sure to properly shut down the Cloud Key each time...

I actually had the linux mess up on a cloud key once and support was able to get it working again by sending me to the emergency recovery page for the cloud key. As long as you upload the newest full firmware it overwrites the linux OS as well.

Hoping they can get their routers up to par with pfsense. One of the pfsense developers went over to Ubiquiti but I'm still not seeing much progress in their router department.

From my reading Ubiquiti has already implemented IDS/IPS with Suricata, and it has been pretty successful. The problem is that the older gen routers don't have the CPU to handle it. I am hoping that they release another USG with a quad CPU to handle the load since Suricata is multi-threaded.

Yes, you can get them back running. I just think it isn't documented well that MongoDB sucks and the CK will corrupt 99% of the time if you just unplug it.

I have the cloud key on POE and I never shut it down when I am doing a switch reboot. I wonder if it somehow knows to turn off?

POE switches maintain power on the ports through a power cycle. At least the ubiquiti ones do.

Absolutely agree. Currently their routers are very lacking in the processor department.

Nice! I didn't know that. My entire network is Ubiquiti and I have built several for others. The only product I didn't like were the old WAPs that required special POE injectors. Those days are gone now. Thanks for the heads up on shutting it down, maybe that is why I had to recover one before. Since it makes backups daily it is pretty simple to recover.
