Ubiquiti AP AC Outdoor

Couldn't find any OpenWRT mention of this AP support, is it supported currently?

Ref: https://www.ui.com/unifi/unifi-ap-ac-outdoor/

I don't see that exact model either, but in ar71xx there are really only two images for the whole UnifiAC line: lite (1 Ethernet port) and pro (2 Ethernet ports). Notice that the builds for the "mesh" models have the same sha256 as the corresponding lite and pro, so they are identical binaries. (This is not the case in ath79 snapshots though).

These have easy TFTP recovery, so the risk of severe bricking is small.

should I use the "UniFi AP AC PRO" image then?

Does it have one Ethernet port or two?
Also make sure it's really an AC device-- the only "Outdoor" one I saw was the old UAP (n wifi, 10/100 Ethernet) type.
In other words, be sure it is not this one:

This is annoying, I can only post a single image :unamused:

The Unifi controller dropped support for this model, so I'm looking forward to try OpenWRT + OpenWISP2 + VPN tunneling. Worried about actual throughput.

That may be related to their gen1 indoor UAP-AC, which was Broadcom based and they're dropping it. Sold only briefly it had a square case unlike the round indoor UAPs.

Can you ssh in to the original firmware to read the boot log and /proc/cpuinfo?

From "info":

So yes it's Broadcom. There is no OpenWrt for that hardware.

Thanks for confirming it!

I've updated the wiki page.
