These are airMAX point-to-point transceivers but they also have a built in 5GHZ wifi antenna capable of acting in normal bridged AP mode. Meaning if you RTM and tweak them for your needs, you can just set them up as normal 'ole WiFi N AP that can also function as airMAX bridges. They don't require a UniFi controller to manage them because they have UBNT's airOS built in. So all you'd need to do to set it up is connect it to a laptop over Ethernet.

These are 5GHZ only. I was able to get mine to work best with my devices at 5180mHz. No 2.4ghz will work with this but many modern devices support 5GHz WiFi N and work great. I can pull about 144mbps over the network.

These are safe four normal outdoor use. I'm going to put two outside my house to provide exterior 5GHz WiFi coverage with AC and 5ghz/2.4ghz N inside.

They also do support management through a controller but not UniFi. It uses UNMS. I run it on on through docker on the same RPi3B+ as unifi and Hass.

Easy. On your 25 acre estate. Build a guest house a half mile away and forget to run wires to it. Then with two of these units you can create a network.

For $12 more you can get the newest version of these at MSRP, the NanoStation AC Loco.

I don't think these are regular WiFI access points, correct? Aren't they more designed for point to point (long range) transmissions used in pairs?

I've used the other Loco series and that's they way the others worked (and they were fantastic by the way).

Yeah, I think these are the point-to-point devices since it's using their airMAX tech.

I still have not gotten a clear picture on how to set these up properly on an established home network. I know it can't be that complicated. Banging my head on the desk hasn't helped somehow.

Maybe there's another model that has 5Ghz, but I have one of these and it is 2.4Ghz only, which is also in the product datasheet:

The Loco M2 can work as p2p or as an access point. I have one outside on a mast as an access point. It's somewhat directional.

100mbps port, not capable of full 2.4 speed. Good for a cabin or something not a full scale bridge for heavy use.

My mistake these are 2.4ghz only but they should work fine if you follow most guides.

Oh. My mistake. I have the loco M5. I believe these should work fine for normal 2.4ghz WiFi N.
