Even “normal/cheap” (non POE) camera can to work as POE.. POE (Power over Ethernet / network cable Cat 5 or 6)
a way to connect…
What I did, was to get one of these of the ebay for $10-15.. This is not POE standard, have to use as set/kit. It works by using 4 out of 8 CAT-5 wires for power (kit includes injector and splitter). It downgrades you network connection to 10Mb, which still should be more then enough for IP camera..
Had very good results with my setup, over 2 years now.. Plus, its great way to run one Cat5 cable to do power and network on it. This will work for any network device: IP cameras, access points, routers, etc.
If you own POE camera read my other post under CCTV categories.
Or you can build one yourself..
