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