If these APs are ethernet (and PoE) enabled.. do they still need to be in a mesh network to create a wifi grid coverage? This vs if they are just powered but not ethenet enabled where signals are sent over wifi to the next mesh node until it reaches the router. In Ruckus terminology the ethernet connected APs are called RootAPs even if they are on a mesh.
Ubiquiti just named these poorly. There is nothing "mesh" specific about them. They should have just called it the AP-AC-Outdoor. ALL of the Ubiquiti APs support meshing with other APs. Naming this one "mesh" was just weird, IMO.

You can use these wired to a router/LAN and they will work great as APs. You can also use them in a "mesh" environment -- either as the "base node" or a "mesh-only mode" depending on your setup.

In other words, you could have a wired AP-AC-Lite and then have this connected via mesh only. Or, you could have this connected via a wired connection and have an AP-AC-Lite connected via mesh only. Or you could use both of them wired. Or whatever. Again, all of the current Ubiquiti AP-AC models can be used mesh or non-mesh as desired -- and can feed a meshed AP downstream if desired too.

How is this compared against the other unifi ap like the circle ones?
This one is great for outdoors if you need that. For indoors, I would use one of the normal round ones. So, really just depends on if you need an outdoor AP. If so, this should be great.

Yes, the POE powers the device. It will work with any router, even non Ubiquiti stuff (but it would be a separate network).
So for this ones would a small edge router with POE, one of this directly connected and one you could extend your mesh with a second one not connected just configured correct?
And to manage it do you need additional software always up? Or you could manage from the router?

Does that mean these are similar to capabilities with Nano HD may be? Do these support vlans?

So this Gigabit Ethernet Wireless Access Point uses an Ethernet Cable via the included POE Adapter to supply both the internet and power to this device?

Anyone know how well these work? Reliability, Speed, etc.?

Would this work with the Ubiquiti Edge Router?
I got one the last time these were on sale. Took an extra week to arrive for starters. Mine is mounted outside at about 10' height. I only get 75-100' clear line of site on iPhones and iPads. No where near the quoted 600'. I'm disappointed in the performance but will keep tinkering with the settings as I really like the ubiquiti products.

The NanoHD is a "4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2" device intended for high-density environments. I would consider it better than this one for most things. But, for outdoor use, this one is a great choice -- it is "2x2 MIMO 802.11ac" Feature-wise, they do support most of the same things though -- including VLANs and such.

Also note this AP is 24V passive POE, not active 802.3af like many of their other products. It includes a POE injector, though, so you don't need a POE switch.

If you're not familiar with active vs. passive POE, google it before setting it up - with active, power is supplied only if the device supports it, but with passive, power is always supplied, even if the device can't handle it.
Was looking to see if anybody mentioned this 👍🏻Wanted to add some more info.

(Redacted-apparently this can run over standard PoE or passive)

Their controller software has gotten way better. Still runs on Java though 🙁

Not completely true! These mesh router can act to make daisy chain wireless connected to each other, powered by your main wired AP like nanoHD. These are great for outdoors and wireless expansion is needed further. Also note that if your main AP is underpowered, it will reduce the bandwidth for devices connected to both main AP and this mesh AP. Other AP can also act as uplink but not daisy chain wireless, thats the main diff. Check topology on ubiquiti site

Unifi has launched wifi 6 AP, those will be great if wireless is not the requirement.

I'm surprised that in 4 years you've never run into any issue with at least ONE of the firmware released since then (and boy some of them have been real winners). I've reduced my UBNT footprint from 4 systems down to just one. It's a great bang for the buck system for enterprise-lite and the UI is fantastic but not the best at anything. Also just got tired of the occasional buggy firmware.
Totally, enterprise-lite for sure. Better than most home oriented stuff and usually cheap. But not polished. They're getting better.

Geez, you have to be a network/wifi engineer to understand most of the comments in this thread. 😏

Could I use this as a Wi-Fi extender for my ASUS router? I have a weak signal in my basement (especially the 5Ghz band) and wondering if I placed this in the basement it would help boost the signal? Would I have to wire it to the router via ethernet cable?

I installed a UniFi Switch 8 POE-60 W at the hub and tried connecting this to the port providing POE. Though the switch shows that it is powering this Access point, the AP itself is not working during set up. It's starts and hangs in with red light. The access point is 15 ft from the hub. Can I not power it that far off with a POE switch? I am wondering if it's falling short of required amp. Pardon me if I am way off over my analysis here and advise what I am doing wrong
