You can add WatchGuard access points to WatchGuard Cloud to monitor and configure your devices. Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud enables you to centrally manage multiple wireless access points across your distributed workforce.
You cannot manage the new Wi-Fi 6 access points (AP130, AP330, AP332CR, AP430CR, and AP432) with the Gateway Wireless Controller on a Firebox or with Wi-Fi Cloud. You cannot use WatchGuard Cloud to manage previously released access points (AP120, AP125, AP225W, AP320, AP322, AP325, AP327X, AP420) that are currently managed by the Gateway Wireless Controller on a Firebox or with Wi-Fi Cloud.
WatchGuard Access Points
WatchGuard Cloud managed access points deliver next-generation hardware to support Wi-Fi 6 technology and the highest level of encryption with WPA3.
Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud supports these access point models:
- AP130 — Supports low-density indoor environments such as a small office or remote workers.
- AP330 — Ideal for mid-density environments of all sizes. The AP330 also has a dedicated radio for security scanning to detect Wi-Fi threats.
- AP332CR — For mid-density deployments and includes an IP67 rated enclosure ideal for indoor or rugged outdoor deployment conditions.
- AP430CR — For high-density deployments and includes an IP67 rated enclosure ideal for indoor or rugged outdoor deployment conditions. The AP430CR also has a dedicated radio for security scanning to detect Wi-Fi threats.
- AP432 — A high performance access point for high-density deployments.
