Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/s6oey (affiliate link) – Here’s how I’m using the Ubiquiti Unifi AC Lite system to extend my wifi and why I think it’s a better value than the $500 eero that everbody’s talking about. See my 101 video here: http://lon.tv/ac101 and subscribe! http://lon.tv/s

What’s great about this system is that it’s affordable (about $85 per access point), very scalable, and very easy to set up. And despite the ease of configuration there is a ton of depth and configuration that can be made to make connections even stronger. It supports 2×2 AC wireless on the 2.4 and 5 ghz bands.
The Unifi’s are powered by POE (power over ethernet) so only a single cable is needed for power and data. A POE injector is included in the box but wireless switches with built in POE will also work.
Performance is fast, range is great, and they are attractive too. I just can’t see spending $500 on a wifi system when this one can get the job done better for half the price.
