A feature that dramatically lacks in GS1200 series is the list of known Mac Addresses and the port association.
I hope that into current and next generation of soho smart managed switches this info can be retrieved via SMTP (best) and web management (good anyway)

    Tried to up-vote this, but receiving an error:
    "Category is not configured for ideation."
    Whatever that means...
    Anyways, I agree this is a very useful feature to track down devices on a network.

    @mMontana,

    Thanks for your suggestion, we'll take this topic internally for further discussion.
    In the meantime, we would also like to recommend SOHO users that needs more rich features to also consider GS1900 smart managed Switch series that can better meet their network demands.”

    GS1200-8 35 euros
    GS1900-8 95 euros

    With Aruba 1930 8G+2SFP, true lifetime warranty at 130 euros, GS1900-8 as home switch has no chances.

    @mMontana,

    Zyxel offers limited life-time warranty to further extend support to our users.

    As you have also mentioned the AIO Switch that are primary target for cloud mgmt, Zyxel have recently launched a new GS1915-8 at 71.99 euro to offer free NebulaFlex option for users that needs basic Cloud mgmt.

    We do hope through the different offerings, users can find the right-fit product for their needs.   :)

    I'm sorry for zyxel claims and products, but i don't believe currently in cloud managed devices.
    I find more useful 1 business day advanced replacement for hardware.
