Outdoor Wifi Radio with Splash Page

I am currently in need of upgrading our Access Points (10 radios) on a very large RV and MH park. Currently use older model of Meraki and before we spend that kind of money, does anyone have any other good recommendations? Specs are outdoor, long range, not too expensive (under $400 each), 11N or 11AC, self-healing, mesh capable preferred. Must work with software that can setup Hotspot - splash page, CC thu Paypal, different pricing with different bandwidths. Suggestions for the CPE helps also. Years ago looked into Ubiquiti but the self-healing wasn't there and a 3rd party software had issues, so went with Meraki. Let me know what you think and appreciate the advice.

xav1963,

I'm using open-mesh (http://www.open-mesh.com/) devices and Cloudtrax (http://www.cloudtrax.com) as a controller for a mixed indoor and outdoor solution. I have three of their OM2P devices covering about 6500sf indoors and about a 300' x 100' outdoor area, and have been very happy with them. I use PoE, so only one cable to each device.

Cheers,
LHerrou

Let me clarify "long range" - Park is 1,200' by 1,400' ... cover is "OK" currently with the 10 radios ... can go higher if need be .. would prefer fewer radios but with stronger penetration .. if each radio covered maybe 300' radius but solidly, that would be great ... and yes we are talking trees and metal, mobile home parks and large, metal motor homes...thx...

I also use open mesh for smaller indoor applications. I feel I need something more durable for outdoor though... thx for input...

My feeling was that for the <$100 for the OM2P and an outside enclosure, it would be cheaper to replace them from time to time than to spend many times that for Aruba or Aironet products. 2 1/2 years on, I haven't had to replace one yet.
