Deliver Gigabit Speeds to 18 Network Devices

Start building your own Gigabit network with the Luxul AV Series 18-Port/8 PoE+ Gigabit + L2/L3 Managed Switch. This plug-and play network switch supports Gigabit speeds to distribute between 18 connected devices, including 16 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) RJ-45 ports and 2 SFP ports, making it an excellent choice for building or expanding large networks of various PoE-enabled devices such as automation hubs, video surveillance cameras, WiFi routers, and more.

  • Deliver Gigabit speeds to up to 18 Ethernet connected devices
  • Clean, Minimalist Look for Polished AV Rack Solutions
  • Front Facing LEDs indicate connection and power status
  • Supports various network applications including automation networks, video streaming, surveillance, multi-room audio, etc
  • Optimize your network with VLAN, QoS and Layer 3 Static Routing Features
  • ProWatch compatibility enables remote monitoring and control of this device and devices connected to the router
  • Easy installation, just plug and play

The network switch features rear panel RJ-45 ports, along with 2 Gigabit RJ-45/SFP Combo ports for easy expansion with pre-existing or additional Luxul devices. Front facing LEDs display connection and power status for each connected device, and can be chosen to be either green or blue.

Luxul PoE managed switches include port auto-recovery and power On/Off scheduling, ensuring system reliability and network uptime. Layer 3 static routing and Quality of Service (QoS) prioritization further enhances network connections between VLANs to provide increased security and performance to your home or office network. The switch also features a built-in energy-efficient power supply and dedicated surge protection for each connected device.

Luxul ProWatch Provides Off-Site Monitoring

ProWatch is a free cloud management solution that provides app-based remote monitoring and management of your network devices from anywhere with an Internet connection. ProWatch consists of three classifications: ProWatch Enabled, ProWatch Integrated, and ProWatch+.

  • ProWatch Enabled products are designed with ProWatch compatibility to provide remote access and monitoring of the device, deliver alert notifications and firmware updates, and allow for remote rebooting of the device.
  • ProWatch Integrated products are devices that have been added into a ProWatch connected network and are capable of reporting information to the network.
  • ProWatch+ products allow non-ProWatch enabled devices to be controlled remotely and report information as if they were native ProWatch Enabled devices.

As a ProWatch Integrated device, this device is capable of self-reporting its information to a connected ProWatch+ device, such as a Luxul router, Mesh Node, or Access Point.
