I've been pretty impressed with the UDM-P.  That basestation is a beast, ha ha.

I don't know much about wifi but wouldn't this heavily interfere with his neighbors' wifi signal?

there are enough free channels on 5ghz it should be fine. he also is in a fairly sprawled area compared to an apartment block where even 5ghz is often fine

...replaced $1000 WiFi with... nearly $4000 WiFi+surveillance.  Might be the equivalent of a compensator.  Just sayin' 😉

 

I'm honestly curious how well the UWB-XG does channel and gain management as it's blasting the cul-de-sac.

 

For the peanut gallery, this is the pricing I dig up from a WISP VAR.  Took some guesses based on boxes visible in the video.  Que the terrible paste job...

Does anyone know what action cam that is? It looks like the Yi 4k but I'm not sure

its a yi 4k or 4k+ given the did a review on the 4k that is more likely what it is.

I've got the 4k+ and its better than the gopros of the time

It's LTT so this is content for the channel but I think it's worth noting that this is a pretty dumb AP to buy for home use. Most of the high end features of these two APs are designed for high density deployments for a large number of clients. There's a reason why these two products are marketed as stadium access points. For home use the issue isn't usually a high number of clients, the problem is usually your house blocking the signal. So what you want in a house is more lower powered APs

 

I mean sure these APs will do a decent job but even if you've got money to burn on WiFi that wall is still there. That wall is your issue. You'd probably be better off getting nanoHD multipack and putting an AP in every room you want a decent signal. Avoiding the walls entirely and with more radios probably better overall performance. As an added bonus, given you could turn down transmission power, this option also means happier neighbours.

 

edit: oh, and I believe there is a WiFi6 AP from them in the works. "UniFi 6 Lite" I believe. Just for early access users ATM

I agree with Skywake, more APs where coverage is needed, with lower TX power is better solution. That's what you pay for when you buy wireless controller, being able to manage all of APs at once.

Didn't know where else to mention it but wanted to point out that during at least 2 of the sections in the video where there is a blur on text, for the last frame before scene change the blur shifts/disappears and the text is plainly visible. Not sure how important the blur is in this case but still.

Linus oh Linus.. I love your videos and also do love Ubiquiti equipment.. but this video is so wrong. The equipment isn't meant for home use at all, it's meant for far other applications.

 

The XG basestation is meant for large public places and event, where big groups of people are connection to the base station, it's really not meant for home use where you only have a few people connecting at the same time.
Same goes for the XG Access Point, this one is also not meant for home use.
 

It's almost like the hard requirment was that all the equipment needed to have an 10G link, even when it's way overkill for the application. 

I think you should pull down the video, since it's basicly full of misinformation.

Btw, did I miss it, or didn't you even use the USP?

Well "Home Use"... I have to manange 4 Floors with a Handfull Guest who visit my Parents in Summer so I try to use only Business HW.
"Home Use" is a very vague definition.

Could anyone suggest a cheaper non commercial setup. I am near a populated beach area and would love to setup a laptop out there without resorting to tethering (the signal comes and goes). The picture is the distance
