I too used Ubiquiti for a commercial/semi-private facility some years ago.
It worked well at the time, no real issues, and had to use their
proprietary Web console for initial setup which is common I guess. PoE
switch required for wired devices but setup and functionality was great! I
have a work colleague who really likes the new stuff in the Ubiquiti line
and has made a really "smart home" out of what they offer with cameras all
around and all that stuff...

“To lead people, walk beside them... As for the best leaders, the people do
not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The
next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate... When the best
leader's work is done the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'”
