    Sweet little AP, January 29, 2016

    So I have had this installed and have been using it for about 3 weeks. I have a good amount of experience with enterprise setups at large installations (100-200 APs) Currently I manage two locations one all Cisco and the other Aruba. I say this so you get an idea of my experience with wireless and you know what i’m comparing this AP too and what I expect from it.

    I purchased one of these for my home wireless because the “High performance” consumer so called wireless routers simply couldn’t keep up with what I needed. I currently have 4 AC and 2 N clients that all require allot of bandwidth.

    The AC-PRO has been able to more than keep up with everything I have thrown at it. It comes with everything you need to mount it and get it up and running. From plugging it into power it took about 3 minutes to get my first SSID setup and devices connected.

    Pros:
    – Very easy to setup and use
    – Comes with everything you need to mount it
    – Great price for the performance
    – Does not require a controller
    – Small and sleek design
    – Comes with a power injector device supports 802.3at PoE+
    – Guest wifi and guest portal (When using the controller software)
    – Able to be used outdoors. Ubiqiti says weather proof
    – The software is easy to navigate and full of features
    To many to list check more here: […]

    Cons:
    – If any I guess it runs hotter than other AP’s I’ve used.

    I look forward to getting another 1 or 2 of these for my house and testing out the seamless hand off functions. I recommend this to any small business or home owner that wants the best performing wireless. These would even work for larger businesses.

    This is my new go to recommendation for friends who ask what AP I recommend for them (Maybe the UAP-AC-LITE model instead of the PRO)

    Simplified my life, May 26, 2017

    I purchased this to go with a Ubiquiti Unifi Security Gateway Pro I got through the Vine program. It has been one of my better technology purchases over the past few years. I have no idea how it operates when separate from the security gateway. I do know that it is fantastic with the gateway. If you know your way around a network, this Unifi gear is pretty awesome for home and small offices. In fact, you can manage both your home and your office from the same control panel. Yeah.

    To be clear – this isn’t consumer grade gear and home networks are probably not the intended use. But… this stuff is oh-so-good for homes with lots of networking bits – which will soon be just about every home. Another point is that this access point looks like a required first hop for the Unifi mesh nodes. Mesh networks are wondrous. You want one.

    Following is the review I wrote for the security gateway. It covers the access point too because they operate as a single system.
    ———–

    This thing, along with the PRO Access Point, has really simplified my networking life. My home network is somewhat complicated because there are the various IOT devices and gadgets that I want to keep isolated from my serious systems that are used for work. The reason this Ubiquiti gear has simplified things is that I’ve gone from a cluster of routers/access points down to a nice clean install. The WiFi part of the network can have four SSIDs from that one access point. This is a nice improvement over the purely consumer grade stuff that is being supplanted because I’ve been partitioning via multiple WiFi routers with each having its own SSID.

    My knowledge level is that I’ve used lots of consumer grade equipment and have turned linux boxes into poor man’s routers. Basically, it’s been setting up SOHO stuff at the start-up level and then getting out of the way when corporate IT types show up with all that fancy (and expensive) CISCO gear. I’ve always been one to suffer a very inexpensive pile of gear over a costly install in a rack. This Unifi gear has me questioning those life choices because the price point drew me in and because it is so much easier to deal with this gear than my old rats nests.

    The configuration bit isn’t that difficult but there have been a few frustrations along the way. For example, WiFi devices having the same SSID can see each other period. I was hoping to isolate them using firewall rules, but that simply did not work. It would be fantastic if this had worked. Instead, I had to set up additional SSIDs on different VLANs. Regardless – having the flexibility to do this is a huge step forward over my previous headache. Another huge plus is that it is now far easier to install new WiFi devices. My netgear and tp-link devices made it a pain in that they are aimed at the consumer who isn’t very concerned about security. That said – I’m still looking for a MAC whitelist ability in the Unifi software – I really like to lock things down.

    I currently have the Unifi control software installed on an old laptop and it runs fine. Even so, I’ll certainly be looking into the cloud key and cloud control capabilities. The capabilities of the Unifi configuration/control software are amazing in that it is so much and so easy to get to.

    The other thing I’m eager to put in place at home is load balanced WLANs. I currently have a cable modem and connect through Comcast. When Comcast craps itself, I’m out of luck. Also, Comcast can’t support a blazingly fast pipe into my house – the wires won’t support it even though they’ll sell me “up to” some impressive speeds. Century link is about the same – there’s fiber nearby but the copper in between ain’t all that. So, it’s now time to get a connection through centurylink, hook it into the WLAN2 port, and see if the two service providers (unknowingly working together) can give me a nice fat pipe.

    Another thing on the to-do list is setting up VPN through this box so that I can retire the linux box that has been handling that chore.

    I’m really loving this Unifi gear.

    If there’s anything disturbing its that this Unifi gear appears to not support IPv6. Yeah, we’re doing OK with just IPv4, but it would be nice to get that IPv6 goodness going just to see what else is enabled.

    Awesome upgrade for a home office network / family of 5, June 10, 2017

    I have installed three of these so far in my house coupled with an EdgeRouter Lite. I love the setup so far.

    FYI this is really more for someone with IT knowledge experience and may take some learning. If you are not tech savvy, or willing to do some research, you may struggle with the install and configurations.

    I have a local server in my home, I installed the controller software on my server. You can allow the connections to the appropriate ports (from the server software firewall) to allow other local systems to access the controller.

    The performance and configurations have been great and performing rock solid. It does take a little bit of time to familiarize yourself with the controller and settings, but I found it pretty intuitive and love the setup so far. In a 2 story house with family of 5 and lots of devices that connect.

    I have not had to reboot a single access point yet other than when they did a recent firmware update. No reboots to fix wifi issues etc.. like I always had to do when I used consumer grade products (many makes, models etc…)

    Was worth the money and investment for me.

    Note if you buy them one at a time, they come with the POE injector for power. If you buy a bundled set they do not come with the POE injector and you will either need a POE switch or to buy the injectors separately.
