AP as monitor only

  • Question
  • Updated 8 months ago
We want to implement access points for location based services. However, to create an as accurate environment as possible (we are aware of the margins when using WiFi) we need a lot of access points. To keep an healthy WiFi environment we want to configure most of the access points as monitor only (so disable the availability for client connections). Is this possible with some Aerohive access points?

Yes it is possible,

First you will need to have location service enabled on your network policy.

In order to configure the AP use custom configuration and select sensor mode. In this example, 2.4GHz is on sensor mode while 5GHz is for wireless access.

I hope this answers your question.
