Security Gateways necessary?

  • I own the Amplifi HD unit and mesh extensions. At this point, we are beginning the process of converting our home into a smart home. I am concerned with the lax security built into most of these devices. Does this have sufficient built-in firewall to be protected against the average (non-MIT) hacker? Would it be more secure with a security gateway, such as the one offered by Unifi?


    I'm looking to secure the home as a whole vs individual devices/computers.


  • @eric-greene AmpliFi will have sufficient built in firewall features to help protect your home against hackers. With that being said, its is built into the firmware and there is little modification that can be made. If you would like something a little more customizable to meet your personal needs a USG from UniFi would give you just that.
