Wireless to POE

Mon May 13, 2019 7:38 pm


I need some advice om which device I should buy.

I have an outdoor camera that will be placed on the outside of a outdoor shed. The shed has WIFI coverage and power (230v) and the andra should be Powered by POE.

My plan is to place a device (outdoor spec) inside the shed that can Transmit via wifi and has at least one POE output to power the camera.
The device Itself can be powered by 230v.

Any advice?

Firstly you need to figure out what kind of PoE your camera support. Not every device is same. Some require 802.3af, some require 802.3at, Some only passive 24V or other.... Even if its same 802.3af/at, it can still differ in modes: A or B (endspan/midspan)
Be very cautious, if you receive an from someone unless they know what is your PoE requirement.
