APIN0103 without a controller

I buyed two Ap-103 for my home.
I can't configure it.
The model is: APIN0103.
I think I hade a mistake.
I dont have a controller. Is it possible to use a software for configure it ?
Can I transform the access point into a controllerless ?. If not, what should I buy to configure the two access points?
Thank you for your help.

Re: APIN0103 without a controller

You should check the white label on the AP that says either AP-103(-RW) or IAP-103(-RW). The APIN0103 is a regulatory part number which is used to certify the hardware and as the hardware is shared between the AP (needs controller) and IAP (can work as Aruba Instant cluster without separate controller), the actual product type is on the white label:

If you own an AP-103, you will need a controller to operate it.
