Moar details plzAfter Ubiquiti's little usage snooping feature (relating to Access Point usage) that was undisclosed and not disableable (without downgrading firmware), I've started looking elsewhere. All of them are probably pretty bad in terms of actual security and privacy, but Ubiquiti was sloppy enough to be caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

Depending on the device, that's almost a requirement for UBNT!Ubiquity has also said they will add an opt out button on the next firmware release as well. I think I am a few revisions behind on my firmware right now.
Moved apartments, verified internet access direct through the modem, and then added in the network stack and everything just works.Mine has been very reliable (router/AP)
May have not been available when you purchased - this is one of the main reasons I stretched for the ER-4. UBNT has since released versions with the same hardware as in the ER-4, but also with proper switch ports that could simplify things for some.but it's not the fastest and I always have to research before updating my ERL to prevent bricking it.
I've been looking at the 4, if I stay with UBNT it will most likely be the next one I pick up. I've had my ERL for ages now, mine was like the first series when they changed over from the plastic to metal case, WAN was still eth1, and the wizards were in their infancy LOL. I'm actually amazed mine has stayed together, considering so many USB and power supply issues people have had.May have not been available when you purchased - this is one of the main reasons I stretched for the ER-4.

From what I read its allegedly performance and crash data, the US side of the company was not informed/aware of the call home change that got snuck in to the firmware update (or at least playing dumb if they did and decided to roll with it).TLDW: They are sending some sort of encrypted data back home. Supposedly it is crash reports but I dont think anyone knows for sure. There is no opt in / opt out, you just have to blacklist the DNS request which they have stated is fine.
I am trying to order UDM Pros. But they have no stock. What's your experience like so far with it?I just recently upgraded to a UDM Pro from an ERL + Pi hosted Unifi Controller for my AP. Relearning the EdgeRouter -> Unifi interface.
Now to educate myself about 10G so I can hook my Freenas into the SFP+ port.
I like it so far, though some things frustrated me with the setup. I forgot I had DNS over HTTPS turned on in my main browser and that complicated my setup. It is billed as an enterprise product (I think they should maybe back off that a bit) but I would not expect an enterprise product to do this janky HTTP/DNS request interception BS to setup. The Edgerouter has been in use for quite a while at home so I'm still learning how UbiOS/Unifi does things in comparison. At work I'm used to Cisco and F5 gear where I usually directly edit port config, Unifi seems to make me create a group with those settings and assign the port into that group. Either way, still learning.I am trying to order UDM Pros. But they have no stock. What's your experience like so far with it?
Sounds pretty similar to what I want to do with it. I figure if I was going to get an edgerouter 4 or something and a cloudkey it would essentially cost the same so might as well get the UDM-Pro.My network is pretty basic compared to many, 1 VLAN for wired stuff, 1 VLAN for wireless. I considered doing a guest style IoT network but after an inventory I only have two of those devices anyhow. I made a severely restricted bandwidth limiting group for those two things instead and it seems to be fine. This may change when I free up a hard drive and buy one or two of their cameras. A doorbell camera that doesn't make me reliant on or subject to Google or Amazon would be nice. There are people bitching about not being able to adopt the UDMPro into an existing controller but Ubiquiti said that wouldn't work that way from the get go. No IGMP proxy or advanced json networking yet either but I don't make use of those.
There is very sparse documentation right now and their forum should add a tag/section for UDM/UDMPro stuff.
IDS/IPS, geo-blocking, and all the other security bits turned on don't seem to phase it with my paltry 250Mbps comcast connection.
I could complain about no POE or only 1 HD slot but hell the thing was only $380. Wouldn't have bought it if it was >$500. If and when I fully figure this out I bet I could have a nice side job installing them for small businesses, bars/restaurants especially. Just don't want to do after install support.
I bought one of the cameras to try out, its an ok system, it works and is decent.Plus you should you want cameras your setup for an NVR as well.
spectrum/charter here with 400/20 ..

-> NAS with two ZFS arrays over 10Gbase-T
So far, happy enough. I wouldn't mind playing with the new UDM Pro, but it's absolutely unneeded and I can replicate all functionality regardless. I'm still saddened that I wound up at a place that is still stuck with Spectrum's 20Mbit max upload speed. Kind of wanted to play around with remoting in through various means while traveling for work and pleasure.
I had no idea people that have personal businesses only do illegal stuff, who knew!?spectrum/charter here with 400/20 .. ''They" say that I don't need any faster upload and even suggested without outright saying it that only people that do illegal stuff would "need" any faster upload speed ..
