Hi guys,

It looks like all the AP products of aerohive should be used with aerohive manager. Is there an AP model that can be used as a standalone AP from aerohive? or without hivemanger?

If I need only 5 in my site, I don't think the hive manger is essential to have but hope there is a solution that I can use to have the roaming among the APs.  Cheers.

No, that scenario would be best met by Aerohive's hosted HiveManager.

Thats right Nick, al client tickets and roaming info is shared among the HiveAPs and communicates with / through the HM.

You can use the APs without the Hivemanager but you still need it to configure the APs in the first place.
And I am not sure but perhaps you cannot even buy 1 AP without purchasing a Hivemanager license for that AP.

If the Hivemanger license is a must, Can I buy it from aerohive directly?

Let's say I want 5 APs with 5 Aerohive license?

I don't need an IT service company as I can install it by myself.

You can't buy from Aerohive directly. You most purchase through a re-seller.
