Hi guys, i'm looking for a decent managed solution for wireless that offers a centralized solution for Wireless (where i can see users logged in via AD, and see all my AP's).

I am trying to cover about 5000 sq ft.

Budget is important here.  How much do you want to spend?

Check out Ubiquiti UAPs.  You can manage them all centrally and view stats, etc.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

If you don't need 5GHz or 802.11ac I'd go with the UAP.
If you want 5GHz but don't need 802.11ac go with the UAP-PRO
If you want 802.11ac go with the UAP-AC

Thanks, how do you manage the AP's? Is there a centralized console and it does integrate with AD?

You can install management software on a PC/server.  The APs can use RADIUS (NPS on a DC).
