EdgeRouter PoE is able to provide power to two UniFi AP-LR?

Hi all!

A newbie question, Im considering buying an EdgeRouter PoE and 2x UAP-LR, my question is... Out from the box, with the power supply provided, will the EdgeRouter PoE be capable of powering up both UAP-LR?

This setup is possible, or I will need to use other power sources to power up both UAP-LR? Can the original power supply provided with the EdgeRouter PoE supply power to those two APs?

Thanks!

It will power two UniFi AP-LR.  Power is disabled by default so you will need to enable it.

You will also need to configure the router for your setup.  There are SOHO configuration files you can download so just create your own.  Search the forums for help because there are a ton of threads about setting up the router.

Oh yeah, forgot to ask... I have one more doubt...

Am I able to connect non-PoE devices on the EdgeRouter PoE ports also? Any configuration required or can I just plug it ?

That's all! Thanks!

I use my Edgerouter POE to power one UniFi AP and one AirCam, works flawlessly.  I love this little router so much, I have 15 on order to install at client locations Man Happy

hi!

this question might be very stupid, but since only "two AP-LR" were mentioned explicitly I have to ask... actually it's probably possible to power five AP-LRs (theoretically) right? 

i would like to power three AP-LRs with the edgerouter poe and the "two" alienates me a little... didn't want to open a new thread though...

thanks for info!

Yeah the UAP-LR spec says 6W maximum power consumption so it shouldn't be a problem.
