    Nice rack!

    Oops....for a moment I thought I was back in my 20's in a dimly lit bar, a cold Bud longneck in hand.

    Sweet!

    Nice. In a week I'm going to be moving and reorganizing my server equipment, but it isn't nearly as compact or tidy as yours and it won't be by the time I'm done either. I should take pictures so you all can properly shame me afterward.

    Doesn't the rack affect the range of the Hue?
    Nice job!

    No because each bulb acts as a Mesh network. My Samsung smart things hub had to be moved to be next to the door it controls. Samsung doesnt do what Hue does.

    Updated pic. [​IMG]

    I have nothing but trouble with this ubiquiti switch. It wouldn’t power one of my 4 port Poe switches that controlled 4 cameras. It didn’t like any thing other then cat 6. One of my cameras I had to swap out the old cat5 to cat6. The switch just seems way under powered. My cheaper bv tech 18 port switch worked fine. I’m disappointed in the new switch. I spent 2 hours fixing it last night.

    Wow, nice Setup!
    In your OP you listed the components. The Blue Iris 2U PC, is it DIY or what PC did you use? If DIY, do you have a component list?
