Home Lab

Home Lab

This is the apartment part of a home lab, there's also another location with VPN and a FreeNAS where I keep data, 6 VM's and one Docker container.

Installing Meraki was the least challenging part of the project, the routing of the cables being far more demanding.

Used an MX65 firewall, one MS225-24P switch and 4 MR33. I really find useful the SM, use it for all devices in the 2 locations and some mobile ones. The non Meraki gear is complemented very well by: Schrack cabinet patch-panel and cable, APC ups and Bachmann rack multi socket.

I would like to add some MV cameras and perhaps MT sensors. Also, would love better integration between APC and Cisco, an API to manage the remaining power and shutdown specific ports for example to extend endurance would be awesome.
