WiFi is always necessary in outdoor environments, whether when you have a party or work at your garden, or connect outdoor cameras or speakers. The routers or access points installed indoors cannot provide smooth WiFi experience for outdoors due to limited coverage and signal attenuation. Installing outdoor access points is the common way to provide outdoor WiFi.
TP-Link Omada outdoor access points offer smooth WiFi experience even in harsh outdoor environments, ideal for the use in garden, yard, outdoor swimming pool, outdoor café, outdoor barns and shed, connecting outdoor IP cameras, outdoor speakers, and more devices.

Fast & Efficient WiFi
MU-MIMO communicates high-speed WiFi to multiple devices at the same time.
IP65 weatherproof enclosure protects your access point from harsh outdoor conditions.
High transmission power provide long-range coverage for larger outdoor areas.
What Do You Need to Consider When Deploy Outdoor WiFi?
- Outdoor Environment. Outdoor environment is always the first thing to consider, as it’s easy to corrode or fail to work for common access points or routers in the harsh outdoor environments.
- Coverage. The devices need to provide WiFi for all the areas you need.
- Installation Method. Easy installation is necessary, especially that PoE is required to transmit data and power through a single Ethernet cable.
- Management. Centralized management greatly benefits the maintenance if you need to deploy multiple access points.
- WiFi Speed. Smooth WiFi without buffering is important, even when dozens of clients connect to the network.
Typical Outdoor WiFi Solution
Want to deploy an outdoor WiFi network to have an outdoor party, work outside the house, or connect the outdoor cameras or speakers? TP-Link Omada outdoor access points provide fast and stable outdoor WiFi, and are well suitable for all kinds of home and business outdoor scenarios.
1. Outdoor WiFi for Home Scenarios
Yard/ Garden/ Home Swimming Pool/ Shed/ Barns/ and More
For small office and home office scenarios, generally one outdoor access point is deployed to connect the wireless cameras, phones, tablets, and laptops. With the included passive PoE adapter, connect the Omada access point with your existing router, to provide data and power simultaneously using a single Ethernet cable.
2. Outdoor WiFi for Business Scenarios
Medium and Big Outdoor Swimming Pool/ Outdoor Café/ Outdoor Parking/ Parks/ Amusement Park/ Outdoor Amphitheatre/ and more
For small and medium business scenarios, generally several outdoor access points are deployed for dozens of clients and large open areas. With the PoE switch or included passive PoE adapter, connect the Omada access point with a single Ethernet cable. Should certain access points are inconvenient to be connected to LAN ports, use Omada Mesh technology to wirelessly connect the access points without additional cables.
What Can You Get with TP-Link Omada Outdoor Access Points?
Specially Designed IP65 Weatherproof Enclosure for Outdoor Environment
Rated as IP65 during Ingress Protection testing, a resilient weatherproof enclosure and -30–70 ℃ (-22–158 ℃) operating temperature range protect the access points against harsh outdoor condition. This is achieved with a casing made from durable ASA material and specialised waterproof antennas.
Superior WiFi Performance and Long-Range Coverage
Dedicated high-power amplifier and professional antennas along with the latest generation 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO technology, ensure superior WiFi performance and long-range coverage over 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands.
PoE Support for Easy Outdoor Set up
Support both standard 802.3af/at and Passive PoE for flexible deployment, and can be simultaneously provided power and data via a single Ethernet cable by a PoE switch or the provided PoE adapter.
Omada access points can be easily installed on a wall or a pole with the provided mounting kits.
Cloud Centralized Management—Anytime, Anywhere
100% centralized cloud management of the whole network from different sites, all controlled from a single interface—anytime, anywhere. Standalone management via the Omada app or web interface is also supported.
Easy Management with the Omada App
TP-Link’s Omada app provides the easiest way to access and manage Omada access points with your phone. Follow configuration instructions on the free Omada app to get set up in minutes.
Omada Mesh for Flexible Extended Range
Enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range without additional cables, making wireless deployments more flexible and convenient. Intelligent self-organization and self-healing ensure you stay online even when one AP is disrupted.
Seamless Roaming for Uninterrupted Streaming
802.11k and 802.11v seamless roaming seamlessly connects devices to the access point with the optimal signal when moving between APs. This allows sensitive applications like VoIP and video conferences to go uninterrupted.

*Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead, and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection, quality, and client condition.
**60 m is the maximum distance from the power supply at which passive PoE can function and is based on laboratory testing. Actual results may vary depending on cable type and texture.
***Seamless Roaming requires clients need to support 802.11k/v and may require additional set up. Performance may vary depending on the client device.
****Lighting and ESD protection requires proper grounding or use of a verified shielding cable.
