Is the controller software required? Or do they have a built in management interface.
Reason I ask is I am looking at this for a fella's house. His electrician wired the place and installed all the network gear except he has put in one access point in the garage in a metal box. Awesome huh. It is a MASSIVE house and I thought it would be a great opportunity to put in some unifi gear. They care more about performance than price. Thing is they don't have desktop computers, only laptops. Say I installed the management software on one of the laptops, if they took that laptop away (to the the beach house for instance), would the wireless network stop working? I would only be putting in 2 maybe 3 AP's so it wouldn't be much more work to configure each AP.
