Here is the gear I normally recommend to clients to get solid wireless signal throughout their property or buildings.

  1. You need a POE Switch.  I prefer the UNIFI switches because they are easy to configure and centrally manage.  These will also accommodate Ubiquiti cameras if you find the need for them later.
  2. Next, you need a controller.  You can either get a controller for just the wireless, or you can get the one that does wireless and cameras.  The one I recommend has a 1TB drive installed in it for recording video and controls both.WIRELESS ONLY:
  3. Now you are ready for wireless gear.  My favorite is Unifi Mesh access points.  They are good outdoors, have great signal, and can talk between each other if a cable is not available.  They will build a Mesh network if you enable it in settings.
