Knowledge about POE & POE NVR Kits
1. What is PoE? – Power Over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet (PoE) does exactly what it says — it carries power over ethernet cables. So, an ethernet cables caries both data and current together to operate devices like wi-fi access points.
2. Why use PoE?
The obvious advantage of PoE is that you only need a single cable from the Ethernet source to the camera!
3. What are the Benefits of PoE?
Portability: Install end-devices where it is hard to get power. For example, you can install a wireless access point in the ceiling, where you cannot find power outlet. Cost Savings: For a large scale deployment of wireless access point, you don’t need to install power outlet for the access points, which can be a huge cost saving. Simplicity: You need to run only ethernet cable to the end devices, which eliminates the cable clutter. Safer: No AC power is involved, as you don’t need to install A/C power outlet for the end-devices. Easy Maintenance: You can restart the end-device remotely. No need to press the power button to reset the equipment. You can easily move the end-devices wherever you can lay a LAN cable.
4. How do I power my PoE camera?
As seen from the diagram below, there are really only a few ways to power your camera.
5. What is PoE NVR Kits?
POE NVR kits come with POE NVR and POE IPC, only needs one network cable to connect together, it is very easy to setup and install, extra power cables and power supply are not required.
