Netgear Armor R7000 in AP Mode

Does anyone know if Netgear Armor works on the R7000 in AP mode? I was going to give the product a try for testing purposes as I already have Bitdefender and Bitdefender Box 1 I am getting rid of the Bitdefender Box 1 and was going to upgrade to the Box 2 then I saw Armor and thought I'd give it a try but it doesnt look like I have the option to enable the feature and I am on the latest firmware so I thought maybe Armor is not available while in AP mode, anyone else run into this? Thanks

Netgear Armor does not work when the router is in AP mode. An error message will appear when the router is in AP mode.

Is there an answer to this? Can Armor work when the R700P or other Netgear routers are setup as AP?
