Assuming you use different ports on each AP. 

I would use Inbound NAT:
Interface:  WAN
External address:  Interface address
Protocol:  TCP/UDP
External port range  from: (other) <port>  
                       to: (other) <port>  
NAT IP: <Enter the internal IP address>
Local port:  (other) <port>  
Description: Give it a good description
Check the "Auto-add a firewall rule to permit traffic through this NAT
rule" checkbox.

You would be able to connect to the WAN IP:<port> from off site and
connect to the AP with the corresponding port. You will create 3 such
rules (1 for each AP). Make sure you have security of some kind on the
AP - its admin interface will be open to the world...
