WiFi Extender For Cameras Far From Access Point?

I have 2 Mobotix S15 cameras installed around the garage, everything looks beautiful and then it occurred to me that the modem is way, way, way in the back. So my question is, can I add a wifi extender, plug the poe switch into it (the wifi extender) and connect for remote viewing? Low bandwidth usage pretty much so thats not a concern. Any ideas?


Yes, you can simply use a Ubiquiti Nanostation Loco M2 or M5, depending on 2.4Ghz vs 5Ghz on your modem/router. You will set up the Nano as Station mode and lock it to your other AP. This is exactly how I have my garage connected to the rest of my network. In fact, I just was upgrading the firmware on mine today.

Thank you, that absolutely worked!

I find Mr. Dillabaugh to be an informative and mildly agreeable guy. Anybody else feel the same?
