    I paid $166.50 at wireless 1 for my AC Pro 2 years ago, so they not changed in price in a while

  •  

    Shucks. I just paid $110 for Lite yesterday.

  •  

    AC-LR from MSY a month ago. $164. 2 set up in house now.

      AC Pro is better as 3x3 MIMO compared to 2x2 of the LR, LR only benefit is range if that is important like backyard etc

    Can be it powered by a non-Ubiquiti POE switch?

    • +1 vote

      Yes as they come with injector so plugs into any switch

      •  

        That's nice, might get one just to see what the fuss is about.

        • +2 votes

          Most of the pro's is the fact that they did mesh AP configs before everyone else. Everyone else has caught up now but they still are a good product.

      It should come with an Injector but would be worth checking before buying as the bulk packs dont come with POE injectors

      Has to be a 802.3af PoE or/and 802.3at PoE+ compliant switch

    The unifi nano HD is down to about $205 with a code from CA. Offers slightly faster 5ghz performance, but mostly supports mu-mimo. Worth considering if you're running lots of clients!

      AC Pro has better 2.4G then Nano where Nano has better 5G, so really depends on your wireless clients, and which one you have more of

      •  

        True! The Pro has an extra stream on the 2.4ghz band, up to 450 vs 300 on the nano HD. If you're connecting data-heavy legacy devices that don't have 5Ghz, this could be a consideration - the full "HD" AP with 800mbps on the 2.4ghz channel is just too expensive! >$500.

        Keep in mind this IS limited to high-bandwidth clients. without mu-mimo unless your client is pulling the extra over the network - e.g. large data files, not internet/streaming/etc - then 300 will perform identically to 450mbps as it can't service two clients at once.

    Not a bad deal!

  •  

    I'm kinda interested in this but not really sure how much it'd cost to get this as part of a new home system?

    I've got a small house (~80 m2), so could probably get away with just one AP, but not sure what other hardware I'd need to buy. I made a post looking for advice here.

    •  

      I have the Unifi AC Pro mounted on the hallway ceiling (central) and it does my whole 240sqm 4 bed, 2 bath w/theatre house fine, plus backyard and front yard (568sqm total block size).

      I think the key is the location of the AP if you can run a cable in your roof cavity. I did plan on getting an extra AP or 2 later on, but found I didnt need it. Run this with Ubiquiti edgerouterx ($80) for my incoming NBN FTTP connection. Combo is rock solid.

      •  

        Awesome, something like this sounds really good for <$250. I am renting, so don't really want to do any serious fixings but I figure I can just sit the AP next to my router on the fridge aha. It's a small house…

    •  

      download the unifi controller software import your floor plans, add yours walls and windows and then place a ac pro and it will show you how good of coverage you will get

      My single AC Pro i get signal about 2 house away

    •  

      I have all AC Pro V2 setup. I thought the range is good but maybe due to my double brick house, I ended up having to setup 4 x AC Pro V2.
      so it depends on how your house is. double brick etc..

    Do these make clicking noises like the LR? Mine is annoying - had it replaced and is doing the same thing - also cuts out every now and again - I've had enough and turned it off - wanted it to work so badly as the software management is great - should I try the AC Pro instead?

    • +1 vote

      never heard any noise from my AC-Pro, maybe your unit is faulty, might be a cricket in there

      •  

        I've had the same issues with some Lites. Never had an issues with NanoHD. Not used Pro or LR before.

  •  

    Can I install Pi Hole on this to get rid of
    advertisements in all my devices in my entire house?

  •  

    Already have an AP Lite, but want to setup a segregated seperate wifi for the few iot devices i have

    worth adding a second AP like this, or just using AP Lites 'guest' SSID?

    •  

      The guest network prevents device to device communication, they can only communicate with the gateway.
      Works in corporate guest situations but would probably cause issues with IOT especially if you have devices that require a hub such as hue or ikea stuff.

      •  

        good point.. currently most of these wouldnt be but i guess thats definitely a likely future possibility

        just dreading the setting up seperate networks and associated routing rules etc ;)

    •  

      there are a few guides out there like this one https://vninja.net/2019/08/12/unifi-iot-networks/ which show how to create a new SSID, VLAN, etc. for IoT networks

      •  

        thanks
        not using a UniFi gateway currently, so reading a post like that looks like it might be an expensive exercise ;)

        any idea if you could achieve the same with an edgerouter x (is cheapo option)?

      •  

        So if I’m reading this correctly, if you don’t set up the IOT on a VLAN (and only on a separate SSID) you’re not restricting their network access sufficiently?

    •  

      With the Pro you can set up 4 different SSIDs, so probably worth upgrading if the Lite can only do 1 and a Guest.

    Is the range/strength alot better than a standard router? Get some blackspots with my Netgear R7000

  •  

    Someone is playing games with the pricing. Watched it go from $191 with discount to $207 with discount. Thanks but no thanks.

  •  

    How do you get $166 ? Full price is $259, with discount making it $207.20

      Watched the shop put up the price several times. Must have decided it was too cheap and now they are selling it at a higher price than Wireless1

  • +1 vote

    That has been price jacked

    Would like to jump on a deal like this as well, if someone knows another location selling the AC pro at this price, please let me know.

  •  

    I had the order in my cart for the final 2 and it failed then price went up.
