Re: Mesh-network

Hello Chs,

 

Sorry for the delayed response.

 

Yes, SENSE in between your home modem/gateway and your mesh main unit would offer the same protection. Likely you’ll need to put the mesh main unit to bridge mode. Not all mesh systems support that, and some mesh system supporting it may lose some functionality.


In addition, while SENSE protects your devices behind your mesh network, it won’t be able to see the devices individually. Instead, SENSE would see only one device, your mesh main unit. So this will limit the visibility to status and visibility to issues in your home network.

Hello Chs,

 

There was also a discussion about SENSE and meshing in this post. Please have a look. I would also recommend this KB article which provides more information about having SENSE in a big house.

Hi!

 

Can I connect a SENSE-router between my mobile-router (my Internetconnection is through a mobile connection) and my existing mesh-wifi-network, and still get the same protection (if I use the mesh-network for my units??

Re: Mesh-network

Hi, I’ve been able to use my existing mesh network with Sense, and am able to see all the devices that connect to my mesh devices, as well as the mesh devices used to creating the mesh network. This has been achieved by using AirPort Extremes that use the same network name. Wired my ISP router to Sense, wired Sense to my first AirPort Extreme and then wireless extended to another AirPort Extreme.
