Not true. It has a gigabit ethernet port for use as a wired AP...

This is outdoor rated, the AC-Lite is not.
You don't NEED a controller or software. Can be set up in standalone mode with phone or tablet app. Maybe not the best device for you either way though.

Edit to add: Ubiquiti gear is awesome. Just make sure you are using the right devices for what you need. Confusion is understandable because there is a lot to pick from with decent overlap.

Do you have any other Ubiquiti equipment? You will need another Ubiquiti access point to mesh this with.
I believe all you need is the controller software on a PC somewhere. You can use the antenna stand-alone. I have been for awhile now.

I have no other Ubiquiti equipment but would get two if I need, have two floors to cover.

You do NOT need to run these in mesh mode. You get better latency when you run each individually. Just need unifi controller software running somewhere on your network as someone else mentioned.

Great, thanks, I have a server going already so that should work well for it. Do you think I should look into other brands or can I just minimize my research, cut to the chase and go with these?

If you are not using these as mesh APs, then why not just buy a pair of UAP-AC-LITE ? I'd expect you to get significantly better coverage with 2 lites than 2 Mesh

I highly recommend Ubiquiti products. I am running 3 APs in my house with 2 managed switches. The PoE switches are nice so you just need to feed Ethernet cat6 cable to the AP and don't have to worry about separate power. But the injectors that come with most of the AP work just fine.

I, honestly, recommend this. It's like Cisco Meraki without $$$ price tag. Professional SDN ecosystem without having to spend thousands.
