Thread Summary
OP information / description is wrong. The part # reflects a unit that is managed.

It uses the 802.3af/t standard of PoE, which is good. But it won't be compatible with some of the cheaper passive PoE devices from Ubiquiti that gets mentioned around here.

Why are these things so expensive?
Been on the lookout for years now.
Of course I don't need one just want one to clean up wiring and potential future projects.

Can it power some Ubiquiti UAP antennas and VoIP phones?
How to check the right voltage or wattage?

The newer Unifi AP are all 802.3af PoE, which I think this switch supports. So I can't see why not. The power consumption is listed in the device datasheet on the Unifi site.

If you already have unifi gear wait for a managed unifi poe switch to go on sale.

Ah I see, managed vs unmanaged. Thank you.

I am looking to buy to connect my 2 access points that run on PoE. Any advantage to managed vs unmanaged for APs?

I wouldn't look at managed switches for home unless you've got like a home lab or somesort. I would be more concerned about their real life speeds things like memory buffer, latency/throughput issues etc

Managed switches with PoE are usually pricier. If you just need an 8 port unmanaged switch with no PoE you can get it for much cheaper.

Out of curiosity, what do people need managed switches for these days for home use?

I'm using one for my pfSense setup running off a laptop that only has one NIC card. The managed switch is needed since the laptop has only one NIC, as most routers have a WAN and LAN connector. Having said that, I just bought a mini PC to replace the laptop since the laptop was a temporary setup just to see if it would all work.

VLAN tagging. Logically divide your network to say have your personal devices on a private network. IoT devices on another, guests on another etc....
