AMPLIFI INSTANT OR UBIQUITI AFI-P-HD AS MESH POINT

Currently I have a Alien Router/Mesh setup, and wanted to know if it's possible to add Amplifi Instant or Ubiquiti AFI-P-HD as Access points to my existing Alien mesh?
of course these are much cheaper options than adding another Amplifi Alien Router as a mesh.

Hi @Paul-Dingwitz - no & kinda/sortof
No, they are not compatible and cannot be added as part the Alien's managed mesh, wireless or wired
Kinda/Sortof yes, you can add them wirelessly as independently managed mesh points in 3rd Party Router mode...
If you have a US Alien with an unused Additional WiFi-5 Radio, enabling it works decently as a WiFi source for an HD in 3rd party mode, and I assume an Instant as well although I have never tested one
Once setup in 3rd party mode, even though they are independently managed, there is little to no maintenance required
Wired backhaul would be like adding any other bridged access point
