Power over Ethernet



PoE Requirements

Power over Ethernet or PoE describes systems which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices such as IP cameras.

You either need a PoE Injector, to add power to the Ethernet cable for a single camera, or a centrally installed PoE Switch, that supplies a larger number of cameras.

The injector or switch has to be connected to your router. And your PoE camera is connected to the switch or injector:

Can I connect my WiFi camera over PoE?

Yes! None-PoE cameras, like the models IN-5905 HD or IN-6001 HD can be connected to your network and powered by PoE using a PoE Splitter.

Make sure to use a 5V Splitter or a 5V camera model, like the IN-6001 HD, while models like the IN-5905 HD need a 12V Splitter.

PoE Camera Models

INSTAR offers a range of PoE camera models. Please be aware that in this case the WiFi module is replaced by a PoE module. Those cameras don't have WiFi antenna and cannot be connected to your network wirelessly. But every PoE camera is delivered with a regular power supply and can be powered without the need of a PoE switch or injector.
