I just got a ubiquiti edge router x, a couple managed switches and new AP’s. That said I’ve setup Multiple Vlans for different purposes… Internal (for pc’s/phones/tablets), automation (for all my IOT and openhab), Guest, and VoIP.
while I can access anything on my Automation vlan from my internal lan, I need openhab to be able to connect to various other devices on other vlans.
a few examples:
- Multiple media pc’s (running KODI) lives on my internal lan, I use openhab as a remote to control kodi, as well as feedback from Kodi for other Automated events.
- Alarm signals from a NVR that manage IP cameras all on a separate vlan
