Yep it'll be fine. The Ubiquiti AP's come with PoE injectors which are fine for most people - I wouldn't bother spending the extra coin getting a PoE switch for just a couple of things. Just bare in mind that switch requires PoE in also to power it.


You could always run a single Cat6 cable upstairs and have a switch powering everything however just remember this means you've only got a Gigabit of total bandwidth to downstairs (if you had a NAS or something). I'd always recommend running dedicated Cat6 to the AP.



From an aesthetic point of view, I was hoping to avoid PoE injectors for the access points. Looks cleaner, if it's just the AP's hanging there (and no PoE injector) and ideally with the RJ45 wall connection hidden behind the AP.


I don't mind the switch having power, as it likely will be positioned on a shelf by the TV with other tech stuff like the Android TV box etc.


No NAS requirements by the way.

You can always place the PoE injector on the other side of the Access Point i.e where the router or switch sits.
