According to the back of the 1702i it is supported, are you sure it doesn't support AC wireless?

Good Day, I am new to the Wireless LAN controller but I feel my job is going to require we switch to them sooner rather than later. So I'm taking it upon myself to learn, that being said, I apologize for being ignorant to this platform. I do have some questions regarding the Cisco 5508 WLCs and Cisco Aironet 1702i Access Points. I know I should take a course on this stuff from Cisco, but this is a "home experiment" to help with crappy WiFi signal through my home (I do not know why it is not good but I can't get a good signal from one house to the other and I'm renting so I'm not going to troubleshoot that much) and I don't have funds for that right now. I've tried to research but I am apparently not using the correct keywords and I'm sure this has come up before, for that I apologize for this additional thread post. I have the opportunity to purchase a Cisco 5508 WLC with permanent licenses on it (in various quantities) but I've been reading some confusing "details" if you will... I know the 5508 device itself is not wireless, but I've seen some people advertise it as 802.11n so my first question is this... Does the 5508 WLC limit bandwidth to the APs or is that based on the APs connection to the switch? I would assume it is the APs connection to the switch and I would connect utilizing the full 802.11ac bandwidth but I would like to verify before I dump a couple of hundred dollars into an experiment. The APs I am looking at are the 1702i Access Points because they are relatively cheap and they are wireless AC with a mesh option and POE. (I would like to be able to walk around my home and not lose connectivity because I've gone too far from one AP). Are the licenses interchangeable? Meaning if I remove one Access Point will it free up a license so I can add another one at a later time? (I would assume they are) What is the difference between the "StoreIndex-0 and StoreIndex-1" where the licenses are stored? I've noticed some say the permanent licenses are in StoreIndex-0 while others are in StoreIndex-1. Finally, if a firmware (IOS) is updated, do you have to reload the AP licenses? I would prefer not to since it would come with licenses and I wouldn't Again, I apologize for you all having to read this type again if you are, I simply cannot find answers to these questions. Here's an example of the Store Index I was asking about... (Cisco Controller) >show license summary License Store: Primary License Storage StoreIndex: 0 Feature: base Version: 1.0 License Type: Permanent License State: Active, Not in Use License Count: Non-Counted License Priority: Medium License Store: Primary License Storage StoreIndex: 0 Feature: base-ap-count Version: 1.0 License Type: Permanent License State: Active, In Use License Count: 100 / 100 (Active/In-use) License Priority: Medium License Store: Evaluation License Storage StoreIndex: 1 Feature: base-ap-count Version: 1.0 License Type: Evaluation License State: Inactive Evaluation total period: 8 weeks 4 days Evaluation period left: 8 weeks 4 days License Count: 500 / 0 (Active/In-use) License Priority: None Thank you all in advance for even taking the time to read this post and the assistance provided.

I"m new to Cisco and I am willing to do all work necessary to find the answer, but I don't know where to start. How do I install or use EEM and, if you don't mind, can you send the list of commands to me to setup time restrictions? I am looking to do the same thing for my kids at bed time.
