Can anyone help me understand the difference between this one and the UAP-AC-PRO-US?
This one is great for outdoor usage. Ac pro is ideal for indoor usage but can be used outdoor under an awning or something. Ac pro is superior with speed, # of connections, etc. I think nanohd is better than the ac pro though.

Why doesn't Amazon/BH ever have this at this price?

Anyway, if anyone can answer, im expanding my backyard (bought the empty lot behind), so there is no wifi there and there is no plan yet to put ethernet from the main house. Would 2 of these work? I'd put the first one at the furthest edge of my current backyard (hardwired with ethernet, already running unifi) and then put the second one somewhere in the middle. Just need to have wifi there and maybe a few IP cameras.

(Also, what's the main difference between Mesh and Repeaters? I see that you still sort of halve your bandwidth even with Mesh)

Could I get this and put it in the barn and connect to my existing home network? The wifi in the barn is too weak right now.

Yes these could work.

Mesh vs Repeater
Repeater takes the signal, repackages it, and sends it back out (correcting any packet loss and sending it out which gives it more range/distance)
Mesh makes a "smart" Wi-Fi network and allows traffic hand-off when the other Wi-Fi Access Point detects you're in better range than the other. This is kind of like a seamless traffic hand-off so you don't get buffering as much, and Wi-Fi calling will work more reliably.
Also, if you're hard wiring the wireless access points you get the benefit of hard wired backuhaul, which is faster.
On Wi-Fi, you want to make sure the signals overlap kind of like a Venn diagram, so you can reliably hand off traffic between access points.

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
Do you have other PoE items plugged into the US-8-60W Switch? It should be able to handle at least 4 of these, as they don't consume that much power.

I would recommend making the whole home the same setup with MESH capabilities. Sure, you could add this, and it could help, but it's just like adding any other random access point from there.

To clarify, this device (the AP-AC-M) supports BOTH passive 24v AND 802.3af/A PoE. You can power it just fine from a Unifi PoE Switch (without doing manual passive 24V on the port) such as the US-8-60W.

- John...
I can also confirm this works fine with the US-8-60W . Unfortunately my other AC-LR didn't work because it was 24V passive only.. (early board version, apparently). Pretty bummed about that, so that still runs with an external injector.

Does these Ethernet Wireless Access Points come with their own POE Injectors?

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 bought one a month ago and it's very reliable. I'll lose wifi in my house, but I'll have it in my barn with this.

Can these AP's connect wirelessly to a wireless router, or to another Ubiquiti Wireless AP that is connected to the router via Ethernet or does each AP need to be connected via Ethernet?

Thanks! So it looks like roaming capabilities with mesh though your bandwidth still gets halved when using. Good enough!
