Hi, sorry in advance if this post is confusing or if I use incorrect terms, I'm just a pool guy trying to find a solution for his IOT device.
I install iAqualink control systems and have found the antenna to be pretty weak. About 2 years ago I started using the NSM2 to connect to my clients SSID and then sent a hard wired connection to the iAqualink device. When I did this I would set the NSM2 into router mode and set it up on it's own subnet to try and add a level of security (maybe that is stupid? 🤷♂️) Anyways it worked really well.
Now I am trying to use the latest gen of Nanostaion AC products and it seems no matter what I do I can't get it to connect to my clients SSID. Is there something I am missing? Or has ubnt added a security factor by requiring a PtP connection thus requiring a nanostation on each end?
Lastely is there a better product to use in this price point? My requirements are: outdoor rated, can be powered by 1 POE injector, and has a antenna comparable to the Nanostaiton products, and not have to hard wire connect (temp or permanently) to the existing network.
It's my understanding that the airmax M devices are being discontinued correct? If so is there a different product I should look at going forward to connect to standard Wifi devices?
M devices aren't discontinued.
afaik only AGW and Pico M2 are EOL.
Who told you that?
