Are there any dark/black AP enclosures that fit AP121's? I need to install several into our black box theater and other areas where a white box would not be welcome.

Hi Bryan,

Unfortunately there is not a "dark" AP offering for our APs, nor is there a concept of a replacement enclosure for a stock AP. Product Management may chime in on whether this is planned/possible, but currently white is the only color AP we offer.

I was actually hoping that someone might know of a 3rd party offering (although I'd be thrilled if AH ever produced an alternative casing). Oberon makes enclosures that fit many APs (but only in white) and dark skins (but only for Cisco).

I'd imagine any standard ABS enclosure* should be fine to be sprayed in any colour you like, alternatively, the case on the APs could be removed and sprayed separately.

e.g. from oberon http://www.oberonwireless.com/hard-li...

Unfortunately I can't recommend any third party enclosures to you. However I should mention that spraying/painting/otherwise altering the AP enclosure may violate the hardware warranty and/or potentially affect performance of the internal antenna model APs so I do not recommend this route.
