Ubiquiti bullet. .....which one??

by davidhanson » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:42 am

Sorry for my complete ignorance but other than the Titanium model I'm at a complete loss as to which to choose. .....2.5ghz, 5ghz,
What the #%&# is a ghz........almost? Fortunately I have a buddy who can probably put it all together for me once I select the components and I will have wifi on the hook.
Cheers

Before you run off and start buying a bunch of Ubiquiti video cams, what are you trying to accomplish? Do you plan on monitoring your boat real time? Security? Making videos? I have installed a Ubiquiti system for a tennis club and it WAS NOT plug and play. You have to have a good knowledge of Networking and IP addresses. The cameras and the switch use the same IP address while the NVR (Network Video Recorder) use an IP address very close to the cameras and switches. Plus if you are putting in on a wireless router and/or IP Modem. You have to know your networking.

Think this through very carefully.

The Ubiquity Bullet is a wifi device that the OP is looking to configure as a bridge or router to increase his connection range to wifi access points. It has nothing at all to do with cameras, etc, and is pretty easy to set up.

However, the OP should be aware that the Titanium M5 Bullet will limit him to 5GHz a/n networks only. This band still isn't all that commonly available, although it is better than in the past. Most places are still using the 2.5GHz b/g band - and even those using a/n also have b/g alongside.

Mark, got it. One of the Ubiquiti cameras is also referred to as Bullet. Nice to see that Ubiquiti uses unique names for their products. :wink:

It's a good piece of gear for those with IP network knowledge. Otherwise I STRONGLY suggest you contact Island Time PC for help. They are cruisers whose full time job is supporting crusiers using 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (wifi). They sell and support turnkey solutions... well worth a few extra $$ for those who don't pocket protectors <grin>
