Looks good - do you have the picostations flashed with the firmware that makes them compatible with Unifi controller? I am working on a home project at the moment where I need a couple of outdoor AP's, and am torn between the UAP Outdoor+ and the new UAP-AC-PRO which is outdoor graded (under the eaves of a building). However, a couple of Pico's might do the job for outdoor areas with low usage. What do you think?

I just checked your YouTube channel and see you have a video on this - great! Subtitles would be a good edition, so I can mute the music though Icon Razz

@alex_cambui Just a heads up there is suppossed to be a Gen2 Outdoor AC come out sometime before the end of the year. You might consider that. Man Wink I know I personally can't wait to replace my Outdoor+. Don't get me wrong its a great router just want to have 5Ghz outside as well.

@alex_cambui Yes sorry about the music I have had quite a few people complain about this. I will work on a fix for my upcoming videos Man Happy

 

The Picostaions are flashed with the UniFi firmware and working great!

@alex_cambui, since you have that eve to hang the access point under, why not use the UAP-AC-Pro? It has the best internal antennas with 3x3 mimo.

@DrKrunk - that is the main plan, but getting hold of them in Brazil is like getting hold of a blue unicorn. Those that do have them sell them for silly money, and the Distributors sell out fast. I can get second hand Picostations easily enough though, although did see someone selling one for US$265 this week...I am giving up on ever gutting Unifi running on the Nanoloco M2, so will sell them and see if I can get enough for some UAP-AC-PRO´s.

@alex_cambui What if you were to buy your access points from the USA E-Bay page? Some of the sellers will ship worldwide because EBay has a shipping center here in the USA. As a seller, all you do is ship your product to the EBay worldwide shipping center, and they will then ship it to you in Brazil.

 

For example, this Ebay listing here

@DrKrunk - I wish I could do that! There is a US$50 limit on value for anything you can receive tax free on Brasil, and the US$50 includes the cost of the freight. Beyond that, tax is high. A well known online retailer from the East has already blown any postal routes by routinely printing invoices for US$49,99 including freight on just about everything they send, regardless of the value! Going to Paraguay as a land route allows me to go to Flytec there and bring back US$350 tax free for personal use. Or you can fly it in yourself and bring up to US$500 for personal use. It´s actually a pretty good system if you go over - you can complete an online form with what you have, and the value, and it calculates your taxes and gives you a payment form so you can pay online before you arrive back in Brazil. You then fly past the Nothing to Declare line and go straight to Goods to Declare, hand over the printout and the proof of payment, show the goods, and off you go. This is far cheaper than buying in Brazil still.
