Users have reported needing only one UAP for average-sized homes, but of course, all homes will have different needs depending on size, building material, wall distribution, number of floors, environment, among others. Use the comparison charts for UAPs
and the device's Datasheets to select an AP that is enough to meet your needs. Start with the minimum number, you can always add another if necessary. The UniFi Network Controller allows for easy adoption and scalability. Once you have your UAP(s) connected, you can study your network’s Map
in the UniFi Network Controller and identify any areas that might need an extra access point. Find information about the Map feature and how to use it in the UniFi User Guide
, Chapter 6: Map.
