This may be a dumb question, but I figure it’s always better to ask. The very first thing I did when I bought my house was wire the whole thing with Ethernet. In my laundry room, I have a small, wall mounted server rack that has my patch panel, 24 port switch, a shelf that holds my modem, router, and a PoE inject for my WAP. All 4 of these devices plug into a small rack-mounted UPS. I eventually plan to expand this to include a small NAS.
At first I was thinking of getting a HS110 and just plugging the UPS into it and then in Sense I’d just name it “Network Rack”. But then I started thinking maybe I’d want to get an HS300, so I can get power readings for each individual device. I know each one uses a small amount of power, but it would be cool to see them all separated out. I’d just plug the HS300 into the UPS and plug the devices into it instead of directly into the UPS.
I’m sure there are others with a similar network setup. Which way did you choose?
