You can set it up with the controller software from your PC, and then it'll run as is until you change it.

Good to know, thanks.TheHemming wrote: ↑Jun 19th, 2016 2:34 pmYou can set it up with the controller software from your PC, and then it'll run as is until you change it.
Cheapest 'always on' controller is getting a RaspberryPi and then just adding the Ubiquiti Repository for Arm, and install it that way. Or if you have a server running in your house ... just install the appropriate packages on to there.

I would disagree. This is the LR model (long-range) ... I have two non-LRs at home and likely one LR would have been fine. Two gives me excellent overlap in a 60 x 120 lot, LR would be a little less but just fine.

Thanks, just ordered another... Already have one but the signal drops off a little at the very furthest part of the house.Kwirky wrote: ↑Jun 19th, 2016 5:04 pmIt's an OK price, but with the AC-LITE selling for ~$10 more at Amazon.ca (when you consider shipping), I wouldn't bother with one of these units today. Also, note that the LR won't improve range in many cases; it has the same 3dBi antennas, but a higher (27dB vs 20dB) output, meaning that you may be able to see it further away, but the chances your client will be strong enough to talk back to it aren't any better.
