Hello everyone, I have a fairly extensive HomeKit configuration, on an eero pro 5 network (3 units), powered by an arris surfboard modem. My house has a cat6 cable to every room, so all my eero devices are connected to my network. My eero gateway is powered by an uncontrolled 8-port Ethernet switch, but I want to upgrade to one with more ports. I wonder if I should move into the realm of the unmanaged Ethernet switch and I’d love to hear your thoughts on whether it’s worth it for a smart home, especially homekit, and also whether it would play nicely with eero. Or maybe I should be left with a poorly managed switch? Thanks! __________________________ My HomeKit devices include (Ethernet wired) 4 Apple TV 4K (all wired) 1 OG HomePod 2 HomePod Minis 1 airport express (for airplay, wired) 6 Lutron cassette switches (wired hub) Approx. 20 / 30 Hue bulbs (Hue accessory – switches etc. 3 VOCOlinc smart light strips 1 iHome outdoor switch 1 iDevices outdoor socket 3 electrical sockets 2 LG OLED TVs (wired) 2 ecobee 4 thermostats 1 Schlage door lock 4 IKEA smart blinds (wired hub ) 1 Chamberlain garage door opener 4 Koogeek sockets I also have a Sinology running Homebridge in a docking container, which allows me to integrate the HomeKit a: Alarm system Ring Ring doorbell pro 2 Ring floodliyht cam 2 x ring spot about 2 other smart switches.
