i have a wireless lan done with some uap-ac-pro connected by wire to my lan switches.
Now i have a little lan (only one 8 port switch) in a cottage outside the main building. Wireless signal strenght is good outside the cottage. I want to make a bridge between the little wired lan in the cottage and my lan in the building.
What ubiquiti product should i need?
Is one nanobeam 5ac enough? It can bridge to the uap-ac-pro existing wireless lan?
Thanks in advance

The airmax "ac" line does not do 802.11ac WiFi. A single unit will not connect to your existing UniFi setup.
How far is the cottage from your main building?
Fiber (trench it through the ground) or a pair of airmax radios (both installed outside) would be two viable options.

@dpurgert cottage is 10 meters far from the main building in line of sight with an UAP-AC-PRO. Inside the cottage i get low signal near the windows, because the cottage is shielded. Fiber is too expensive and i cannot dig throught the ground.
@MooseTurd i have some doubt about the reliability of the wirelss uplink function, but i think that the best solution maybe another UAP-AC-PRO in wireless uplink, so i have wifi inside the cottage too (even if i don't need it). I have one UAP which should do the wireless uplink with the UAP-AC-PRO. I just have to try if it works as expected.

I'd not even try with the wireless uplink - go for the two airmax radios as suggested by @dpurgert - this will give you the least amount of trouble.

@andyc - given that it's only 10 meters, I'd favor fiber over the radios.
I mean, for about $100, you get 15 meters of pre-terminated outdoor fiber (with pulling eyes) from fs.com
But yeah, if he can't dig ..
