USG with Alien mesh

  • I'm debating using my UniFi Security Gateway (USG) in front of my Alien mesh system. As I understand it, I would need to have a configuration like this:

    WAN/ISP-->USG-->Alien (bridge mode) --> the rest of my home network

    I realize that the Alien has a firewall, and because of that, some say that a USG is unnecessary. However, if I want to use DNS filtering (e.g., NxFilter), wouldn't that work more easily with a USG as opposed to a closed system like Alien?

    Would the above setup work? What would I lose by adding a USG to my network?
