Is anyone aware of a function for the access point, and whether it plans to use the cellular radio or the WiFi radio for those connected into the access point? I tried to connect a secondary panel and a thermostat, but neither worked. If cellular, I imagine it would really limit what could be allowed to connect.
Access Point mode is simply for use as a method for connecting secondary touchscreens if no Wifi is present.
2GIG support mentioned that it has noticed a problem with Access Point mode though, so I do not recommend relying on it yet. In the vast majority of cases wifi will be available.
