If this is the exact hardware you wanted, you'll save about $40 over Amazon.

AC Pro APs are about $130 each and the cloud key is $80. A single PoE injector is included with each AP if bought separately so that is potentially a loss actually.

One word of caution about that single injector: Unless you have a PoE switch to connect these two or want to purchase another injector, you will need to daisy chain them together. Consider your existing wiring when purchasing this kit.

Are you sure the two individual AP's don't have their injector in box and this stand alone injector is for the UC-CK Cloud Key Controller?

I'd suspect that is the case. Their specs state that only the 4/5 packs are shipped without injectors which would imply singles are (mine came with them). Only the in wall APs appear to ship without injectors.

If that's the case, this is a pretty good deal if you need the stuff. The lowest I've seen the Pro is 117.00 and the Cloud Key has been in the upper 60's.

At 2 x 117 = 234 would leave 66 for the Cloud Key. About on par with the front page individual deals on here plus you get another injector for the Cloud Key, which comes with nothing standard to power it out of the box.

That's entirely possible since the cloud key doesn't normally come with an injector. Probably more likely even. I was basing my assumption off the 5 packs not coming with injectors and the singles including it. I would imagine this is indeed two singles instead of a 2 pack.

I just re-read the page and it states that the injector is to power the Cloud Key.

The kit also includes one UniFi Cloud Key, an integrated computer and software controller minus the bulk as well as one POE-48-24W adapter to power it.

So it does. Honestly I'm a bit surprised they didn't just include a cheap USB wall wart adapter to power it ala Chromecast.

Also, for anyone playing at home, if you aren't familiar with the Ubiquiti setup, you don't actually need the cloud key unless you want to access real time stats and tracking functionality.

Most home users can set up just the access points via a connected computer and never log in again. Imagine the cloud key like a mini computer that is logged into your router setup pages all the time.

It allows you to login to the router pages from anywhere with an internet connection. Otherwise you need to have a computer with the (free) Unifi software connected to the network.

As was pointed out by someone yesterday, you actually can set these up with the iOS or Android App and not even need a PC at all. You don't get statistics, captive portal and maybe a few other things but for many, this isn't needed anyway.

I just learned something today. The quick video I just watched had the wireless setup inside of the AP settings and not in the general settings. Does the app setup allow you to easily use the same SSID/password across all your APs?

If this only includes one 48v power supply, this isnt a deal. UAP's sell for 130 on amazon including a power supply for each one. Cloud key sells for 80. Cloud keys do not include a power supply.

You'll end up spending 30 bucks or so for another power supply.

I made the mistake of buying a 5 pack of UAP pros to save a few bucks. Imagine my suprise when the opened the box and it didnt include any power supplies.
