Maybe message these guys and see if they have or can make one for a MR42 https://coverandhyde.com/
I feel like some type of stretchy fabric would work well and not impede signal.
@CotyMick I saw those but it looked like a metal box. But now that I read the spec it says they are plastic and don't impede the signal so may be fine. Would be interesting to test.
Hey team, a colleague and I just had this conversation with a customer recently. We found a local sign shop that does vinyl graphics & wrapping. They wrapped the APs for around US $30 per AP. It was for a zoo and they wanted the outdoor APs to blend in. Some where camo, some were brick pattern, some just matched the wall color. I’d search for local sign shops or someone that does vinyl car wrapping for example.
I did a couple quick searches and the stuff is fairly cheap and also looks pretty simple to do (depending on how much of a perfectionist you are!) Here’s someone doing a laptop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvSCkLNPb30
Maybe we'll see a video sometime soon of someone vinyl wrapping a Meraki AP?!?
I wrapped my personal AP at home and am contemplating it for my new install... Stuff I got on amazon peels off easily and leaves no residue any different than a normal label. Looks good to me will be trying on next install. its 3.5mil thick.... cant impede anymore than a wrap or box.
@ThygesenPainting any of the devices invalidates the warranty, https://documentation.meraki.com/General_Administration/Other_Topics/Returns_(RMAs)%2C_Warranties_an....
Hi @PhilipDAth ..
Or get somebody to do a spare-time project making covers/bags in Clan-colors ..
Can't be that expensive ..
Hey team sorry I was offline for a few weeks and just checking back, I had to get through the 350-401 Cisco exam, failed it (by just a few points) 2 weeks ago and then got a solid pass 2nd time around yesterday, so I was neglecting the Community for a few weeks. 😁 @Thygesen the other answers are correct, technically speaking, you can certainly spray paint an AP with the non-metallic paint as you mentioned and it would likely work fine, but the warranty is void. I mentioned in another reply above about vinyl wraps, and yes they'll work great, and to my knowledge they do NOT void the warranty like paint does. That'll be your best bet to have the APs blend into the environment, vinyl wraps are effective, safe, and cheap.
