1. There is no network cables in the box; you need two to connect it. One is from your network equipment to the UniFi power supply, and one from the power supply to the UniFi device. There is no separate power socket on the device, only Power over Ethernet (PoE).
2. The controller application requires Java and should be accessible by the UniFi device. If you have a firewall on the controller machine, you will need to allow connections from the UniFi device to the controller application. In order to control the device from the controller, you should either to add another DNS record for the controller machine or ssh into the device and set the controller's URL manually.
3. If you are like me and want to use it to limit your kid's internet usage with separate scheduled virtual access point, there is one cons. When the scheduled air time is over, the device switches the virtual access point off. So in case a kid uses mobile phone, the phone switches to the mobile data. I would prefer the access point to still be available, just disable any WAN traffic, as does my old FritzBox modem/router.
This solved all our problems, it was fairly easy to set up, (look on YouTube if you are struggling) I have it the same SSID as our existing wifi so we don’t have to change passwords etc in our devices and it works flawlessly. We are now getting full speed on our wifi devices.
Very happy with it.
While the controller software seems to be oriented around managing one or more units for corporate/guest networks, I found it straightforward to set up for home use. (Note: WPS is not supported at all - which isn't a bother for me, but maybe it is for you).
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Provides solid wireless with good coverage. Does it painlessly. Doesn't have ridiculous multicast glitches (like so many APs do). Every hour, every day, it just keeps ticking at speeds my wireless LAN hasn't ever achieved before. ZERO problems.
Very glad I got this unit.
Took about 15 minutes to adopt and upgrade with wired connection, would be great if the later firmware is installed by default.
Also tried wireless adoption but not working well as the walls are in between. Wireless adoption works fine in open area like factory.

Everything worked but still pissed me off
Wandering with my device around the house and property, the app showed when the connection switched between 5G and 2G, which was handled seamlessly by the AP. As you may know, 5G is faster but with shorter range and more easily blocked by obstacles, such as walls. You will want to experiment with positioning the AP (which way it's facing), as well as location, to optimize coverage.
The AP requires PoE to operate and the single unit package includes a PoE injector that is powered from a wall outlet. Note that to use the injector, you will need two ethernet cables. One from your switch/router/modem to the injector and one from the injector to the AP.
The AP I purchased from Prime Electronics and fulfilled by Amazon was fresh stock, a few months old. The box indicates it's now compatible with PoE standard 802.3af/A, as well as the older 24V variant, which Ubiquiti had originally adopted years ago. This means the AP will work with all UniFi PoE switches (apparently it didn't previously work with the less expensive 60W model). I mention this because there could be some confusion if one reads older reviews that discuss device incompatibility. According to Ubiquiti's website this hardware revision to the AP became effective in September 2016.
Is this AP better than something half or quarter the price from the well known and not so well known consumer lines? Time will tell. It's likely a greater factor if it's integrated into a larger UniFi system. IMO a significant plus point is the UniFi system's excellent software. Set-up was a breeze and system management is straightforward with the potential for much more granular control through their dedicated controller program.
Keep in mind that few people 'need' this class of device at home. There are some conveniences and features to an overkill setup, control, visibility and security are the big ones for me. I came from two Meraki MR18 APs at home, I won them at a conference about 4 years ago and they got me hooked on the advanced features. The Meraki cloud licenses expired this summer and was prohibitive to renew. I wanted to get away from re-occurring license costs and I was able to purchase all the hardware below for basically the same as a 1-year renewal for the two older Meraki APs.
So I decided to give Ubiquiti a go. I order Two AP AC Lites and a USG Router. Setup isn't something that your average homeowner would want to take on. Keep in mind these are business grade devices so if you don't know/don't care to know what DHCP, DNS, NAT are, go out and buy a Google Wifi, and save yourself the frustration.
The two AP AC Lites cover my 2200 sq foot bungalow with ease, One would likely do the trick but I have some outside devices. I keep the APs in the unfinished basement. The USG Router is a nice to have an allows for more advanced options like IPS/IDS and better gateway security. I was using an Asus Router with the Merakis which was fine but after no more firmware update for about 2 years, I wanted to move away from that device. Also worth noting that in a power outage situation, everything comes back up on its own with the USG and the AP ACs. Previously I would have to power cycle the Asus to get the WAN to pick up again. Which isnt ideal when you have Wifi Cameras and Smart Home devices.
The Controller software for the Ubiquiti products works well, it isn't required to be running all the time, but I have a Workstation that is on anyways so it no hold up there.
Bottom line - These are business grade devices. Do your research. Know what you want out of network and buy accordingly.
A pesar de ser de gama media y la versión Lite, cubre perfectamente todo el piso (de aprox 250m2) con varios muros de block de por medio, manteniendo throughputs mayores a 250Mbps en casi todos los puntos.
Solo viene incluido el AP, montaje para pared y para plafón, el adapatdor PoE y un cable de corriente.
La configuración es fácil de hacer, y si eres manitas de redes puedes activar los ajustes avanzados que te dan un control mas granular.
Algo importante a considerar es que si deseas conservar los registros de uso del AP (como lista de clientes vs tiempo, tráfico, portal cautivo para la red de visitantes, etc.) necesitas tener instalado en algún equipo el UniFi Controller como una Raspberry Pi (para que no compres el UniFi Cloud Key).
Excelente upgrade para cualquier red doméstica!
Update Febrero 2020: Adquirí otro AP AC Lite para mejorar la cobertura en el 2do piso, mas que satisfecho con el performance!
