Create a Long Range Outdoor WiFi Building to Building/Point to Point Solution
Mount two HOW12ACM’s outside within view of each other and it should create a long range WiFi network that can reach up to 1000ft or more (*Depending on Networking Environment) and connect both locations together. Perfect for remote WiFi security cameras, remote WiFi access, Outdoor WiFi Hotspots, etc. Setup this long range outdoor WiFi setup at a RV park, marina, backyard, warehouse, office and more.

Amplify your Outdoor Wireless AC1300 with Premium Connectivity & Versatility
The HOW12ACM is a highly-reliable industrial long range outdoor wifi access point designed to extend wireless network coverage in outdoor environments. It supports IEEE 802.11a/n/ac and is backwards compatible with the IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network standard. Also, the HOW12ACM provides simultaneous operation in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz range, giving maximum flexibility. All computers and wireless-enabled network devices (including tablets, smartphone, ultrabooks, smart tvs, etc.) can connect to this wireless access point. IEEE 802.11ac wireless connectivity also gives you transfer speeds up to 1300Mbps!

The HOW12ACM allows computers and network devices to gain outdoor wifi access throughout their networking environment. Quickly configure your HOW12ACM with any Mac or Windows computer through your web browser, no software installation required! The versatile wall/pole mounting hardware included provides easy setup options for the HOW12ACM. Additionally, the HOW12ACM features two gigabit LAN ports. One is for Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and the other is Passthrough, which can power another PoE networking device. Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable means you have the flexibility to mount the HOW12ACM anywhere without being near an AC outlet.

With an industrial standard IP56 rated enclosure, the HOW12ACM works in challenging outdoor weather conditions such as heavy rain, heat, snow and smoke.

Wireless AC
Standard Wireless AC dictates that the tradeoff for superfast AC speeds is a proportional decrease in wireless range. Hawking Technology has developed this device to provide the same super speeds typical of Wireless AC, but also provide concurrent 2.4GHz support via Access Point to offset this range decrease. Use this device with any combination of our Wireless AC products, even with the devices you already have, and increase your overall wireless network quality.

Hassle-free Installation
The HOW12ACM is quick and easy to install using any Mac or Windows computer. Simply connect the HOW12ACM to your computer, open your web browser, and access the setup page to configure the device. Connect the HOW12ACM to the router or PoE Switch with an Ethernet cable and instantly boost your wireless network speeds up to 1300Mbps!

Power over Ethernet Supported

The HOW12ACM features two gigabit LAN ports. One is for Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and the other is Passthrough, which can power another PoE networking device. Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable means you have the flexibility to mount the HOW12ACM anywhere without being near an AC outlet. It supports PoE protocol 802.3at.


The HOW12ACM Outdoor Wireless AC1300 Access Point has a wall/pole mount kit that lets you quickly and easily mount the device.  Flexibility of installation allows you to place the unit anywhere to give you maximum speed and bandwidth.
