Nano station M5 with 5 ip cameras. Signal keeps dropping down

Hi,
We using it for security cameras.
There is only one place that we continually have issues.
What we use there is:
5 x Ubiquiti NanoStation M5 set as station with Samsung ip camera
1 x 
Rocket M5 Access Point
Ubiquiti with Antenna - 13 dBi 5GHz Omni set as access point.
One of Nano station keeps dropping down.
The distance is about 400m clear.
We have full bar signal but it keeps dropping down.
We already changed that station just to make sure it's not faulty.

My question is if we are installing few cameras what the best settings we should use on access point and on stations to get best results?
Thanks ahead for your time.

Re: Nano station M5 with 5 ip cameras. Signal keeps dropping down

Starting in the right subforum (AirMax -- you're in UniFi) would be a good idea.

 

As for your problem, it's most likely the use of the omni and/or noise specific to that station's location.

Re: Nano station M5 with 5 ip cameras. Signal keeps dropping down

You're asking about a nanostation (an AirMAX radio) in the UniFi forum ... not going to get a lot of views / help (as you're asking in the wrong place -- think walking into your local Ford dealership, and asking about a Kia).

 

Omni antennas are generally a bad choice as they pick up noise / interference from EVERYWHERE.

 

Or, you have a noise source nearby the one specific Nanostation that is making it perform subpar.  Note that I am assuming your alignment is fine...
