$89.99 with promo code EMCBCRC25

I ordered one earlier this week at $105 from NewEgg, this is a good price for the LR AP. Does NewEgg price match itself for a refund?

I am setting up a Ubiquiti network now for my home. I got this instead of a mesh system. Wow, this is really highly configurable compared to normal consumer equipment.

Very easy to setup from your phone and allows for guest network if your modem/router doesn't.

If I were to place it centrally in a 3300 square foot home how good is it ? Currently I have a ubiquiti as my main router and 3 Asus routers as access points spread around the home. Pretty ghetto but works.

I have one LR placed on the second floor ceiling, right in the center of our 3500sq ft home...coverage is good on the second floor except for some deep areas, also signal is not that strong in the basement or in far corners of the first floor...so as of now I am also using my Asus router as working as AP on the same SSID and password..I get better coverage and don't see any issues switching from LR to Asus automatically...I will eventually replace my asus in the basement with PRO

Just to add, I think with 30-40 devices using wi-if, I feel PRO with 3x3 MiMo will handle traffic better than LR..and LR to be seems more like a marketing gimmick

Mine came from newegg with 802.3af support. They are moving their APs in that direction.

thadiyan, the beauty of the Unifi APs is that you would likely put in 2 APs for a home that large. I went this way instead of going with a mesh system, as this all has wired backhaul (which only a few mesh systems support) and it is much more configurable.

I am setting it up this morning and believe me, it is WAY more configurable. I am not yet sure what I am doing, but I am having fun and learning a lot. Smilie

Correct me if I am wrong, as per the data sheet the LR seems to also have 3x3 MIMO or am I reading something wrong?

This is what I am using as reference.

This works too if you prefer not to read spec sheets.

If it was made after September 2016, then yes, it does. Models made after September 2016 support both standard 803.2af as well as passive 24V PoE.
