My kit came with a Power Over Ethernet (POE) power source. What is it and how do I use it?

Power over Ethernet (POE) is a technology that passes electric power to your device over an Ethernet cable, powering it without the need for a traditional AC power supply.

To use this technology, you will need the POE Injector (which adds power to a non-powered ethernet connection) included in your kit or a POE enabled switch (which is a network switch that provides power to connected devices).

We support both common standards: regular POE (sometimes referred to as 802.3at) and POE+ (sometimes referred to as 802.3af).
