UniFi UAP-AC-LITE Dual Band Wireless AC Access Point

The UniFi AC Lite AP features the latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac technology in a refined industrial design and is ideal for cost-effective deployment of high‑performance wireless networks.

Featuring an ultra-compact design, the UniFi AC Lite AP delivers a cost-effective combination of value and performance in a reduced footprint: 25% smaller than the standard UniFi AP. The UniFi AC Lite AP provides simultaneous, dual‑band, 2×2 MIMO technology.

  • Unlimited indoor/outdoor AP scalability in a Unified Management System
  • High-performance, Scalable Wi-Fi
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards
  • Intuitive UniFi Controller Software
  • Unified routing and security


Dual-Radio Performance, Gigabit Speeds

The UniFi AC Lite AP delivers 5x the performance of the first-generation UniFi AP while still maintaining Ubiquiti’s disruptive pricing strategy.

Sleek, Ultra-Compact Design

The UniFi AC Lite AP features a cleaner design in a reduced footprint – half the size compared to the standard UniFi AP.

Designed for Optimal RF Performance

The newly redesigned UniFi Controller optimizes RF performance:

Spectral Analysis – Collects feedback on full 5GHz and 2.4GHz channel interference.

Band Steering – Pushes clients to faster interference-free, 5GHz channels.

Airtime Fairness – Minimizes problem-client effects on system performance by limiting their airtime access.

Scalable Enterprise Wi-Fi Management

UniFi® is the revolutionary Wi-Fi system that combines enterprise performance, unlimited scalability, and a central management controller. The UniFi AC HD AP has a refined industrial design and can be easily installed using the included mounting hardware.

Easily accessible through any standard web browser, the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for high-density client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance

Use the UniFi Controller software to quickly configure and administer an enterprise Wi-Fi network – no special training required. RF map and performance features, real-time status, automatic UAP device detection, and advanced security options are all seamlessly integrated.

Extend Your Coverage

With the UniFi Controller software running in a NOC or in the cloud, administrators can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi‑tenancy for managed service providers.

UniFi Controller

Packed with Features

Use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and provision additional UniFi APs.

Breakthrough RF Map

Use the RF environment functionality of the UniFi AC HD AP to detect and troubleshoot nearby interference, analyze radio frequencies, choose optimal AP placement, and configure settings.

Powerful RF Performance Features

Advanced RF performance and configuration features include spectral analysis, airtime fairness, and band steering.

Detailed Analytics

Use the configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populations and expedite troubleshooting.

Wireless Uplink

Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range. One wired UniFi AP uplink supports up to four wireless downlinks on a single operating band, allowing wireless adoption of devices in their default state and real-time changes to network topology.

Guest Portal/Hotspot Support

Easy customization and options for Guest Portals include authentication, Hotspot setup, and the ability to use your own external portal server. Use UniFi’s rate limiting for your Guest Portal/Hotspot package offerings. Apply different bandwidth rates (download/upload), limit total data usage, and limit duration of use.

All UniFi APs include Hotspot functionality:

  • Built-in support for billing integration using major credit cards
  • Built-in support for voucher-based authentication
  • Built-in Hotspot Manager for voucher creation, guest management, and payment refund
  • Full customization and branding of Hotspot portal pages

Multi-Site Management

A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator read/write and read-only accounts.

WLAN Groups

The UniFi Controller can manage flexible configurations of large deployments. Create multiple WLAN groups and assign them to an AP’s radio. Each WLAN can be VLAN tagged. Dynamic VLAN tagging per Wi-Fi station (or RADIUS VLAN) is also supported
