We currently have 19 Aerohive access points in use (a mix of AP121/141) and our entitlement keys are about to expire and we'd like to extend them for another 3 years.

My question is: If we have another 3 years of licensing left for 19 devices and we'd like to replace all access points (hardware) for AC ones next year can I use the existing licenses (entitlement keys) for those new AP's? Or do I have to buy/replace all entitlement keys when replacing hardware?

The entitlement licenses installed in your management application apply to the number of managed elements (access points), but not any particular hardware. You can replace your access points one for one without changing your entitlement.
