It it sometimes necessary to place APs or cameras in publicly visible areas that require them to blend into their surroundings. With access points, Cisco Meraki typically recommends hiding the AP from view (e.g., above a drop ceiling). However, customers sometimes choose to paint their APs or cameras to match the area where they are mounted.
Points to consider when painting a device:
Because paint has the potential to damage the units, painting does void the Cisco Meraki warranty.
If theft is a concern, APs can run in "dark mode" which will turn off the LED lights on the unit, making the unit less noticeable at night. Please reference our documentation for more info.
