Home Security Installation - Will it take over my network?

Home Security Installation - Will it take over my network?

Good morning! 

I have a wired network at home with 2 wireless access points. This is all connected to a Unifi Security Gateway, to a Unifi switch and spreads around the house.

 

Of course, the Comcast modem is set in Bridge Mode.

 

Tomorrow the tech crew is coming to install the Home Security solution. 

 

I am worried about the changes that they'll make. I was reading around and looks like they need to either set the modem back to Router (which will cause double NAT and defeat my USG setup) or install a separate router within my network?

 

I was hoping all could work with just given Comcast one Ethernet port from my enterprise grade Switch.

 

So, what is the deal? Am I correct? am I wrong? 

 

Thank you guys!

When your tech comes out tomorrow, walk through everything you just posted BEFORE install. If your modem’s in bridge mode, it’s just a matter of adding our separate security router to the mix.
