The 8 port switch is slightly disappointing only having 4 ports being PoE. Being more than just your run of the mill system, this should have each port being PoE
Unifi has a similar switch for about the same price point with all 8 points being PoE.
The leds are extra bright and would appreciate them being toned down a bit. On the bright side, helps me find my way in the basement without a light.
Thanks for the feedback!
As for the LEDs, unfortunately we cannot control the brightness, but you can turn them off if desired. HERE is another topic on the issue.
@donsandro Which Unifi switch are you referring to?
Thought so… just wanted to confirm.
Interestingly I considered the Alta 8 port switch as a USW-Lite-8-POE equivalent - a little pricier than the USW but it has a multi colour LED (although agree it’s bright) if that’s of any use.
It lights up my understairs cupboard which is handy to a certain extent. White seems to be by far the brightest.
Turned off the LEDs yesterday and noticed that the PoE LEDs stay on.
Is that something that we should be able to also disable?
@donsandro We are working on being able to disable those as well, but do not have an ETA currently.
+1 on more POE ports for 8 port router. I would’ve loved to pick one up along with my AP6-Pro but I needed more POE ports so ended up with a TP-Link.
