I have added AeroHive APs to NetSight but unless you get them static IPs  you could lose them.

That was not an issue for me as I was just testing functionality.

The other think to be mindful of is how many devices you are licensed for.

Is that also possible with the Extreme APs? I dont't see how to establish SNMP connection..

I just took the wireless class and have not had a chance to play with those yet.

The Extreme Aps don't have an snmp agent. They generally managed by the controller.

You can model it with Ping.

you can add the controller to NetSight with both SNMP and CLI credentials. then NetSight will configure traps & syslog receiver on controller = you can configure it manually also :).
On the controller define the AP poll timeout. When the AP is lost, the controller will report it to NetSight.

All is prepared and easy to deploy.

good luck
