Everything You Need To Know About NanoBeam AC Gen2 Transmitting 4K IP Camera Images

Updated: Nov 11, 2022


Recently, we were asked whether it would be possible if we could put CCTV Cameras on the exterior of a lighthouse and then monitor and see the footage from a different location?


The customer, a harbour board, wanted to keep an eye on safety, weather, tides and any other concerns while also allowing harbour users to check on their boats.

To achieve the customer's aim, we had to send the footage back to the office over a 0.6-mile distance approx.

Given the location , it was just impossible to run a wire. As a result, we needed to come up with a solution that would allow us to beam the footage back.

We needed a long-range internet connection, (no wires) and we planned to use a Ubiquiti UniFi NanoBeam to Beam it back Scotty.


It’s a point to point or point to multi-point device. The NanoBeam directs RF energy (A radio frequency signal that uses a wireless electromagnetic signal used as a form of communication)

• Supports up to 450+ Mbps throughput - triple the throughput of standard airMAX.

• Intelligent QoS to allow priority assignment to voice/video for seamless streaming.

• UMobile app provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface.

• Integrates separate WiFi radio for fast and easy setup using mobile device.

• Diagnostic tools including RF diagnostics and airView spectrum analyser.

• Quick installation with no fasteners are required for pole-mounting.

• Next-generation airMAX ac technology designed to boost advantages of TDMA protocol.

• Versatile mounting to allow for placement in almost any position needed for line of sight.


The client was really satisfied with the end result and the footage speaks for itself.
