What is a PoE Surveillance Camera?

Introduction to PoE Surveillance Camera A PoE (Power over Ethernet) surveillance camera, offered by WEILAILIFE Surveillance, is an advanced solution within the realm of wired Ethernet network technology. It enables the transmission of power and data over a single Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for separate power cables and simplifying installation.


Connecting a PoE Camera With the convenience of PoE power supply, a single network cable can transmit both data and power to the camera, eliminating the need for additional power cables and reducing costs associated with wiring and labor. To connect a PoE camera, simply integrate it with a PoE switch. The NVR (Network Video Recorder) can be connected to the PoE switch or router, allowing for seamless device discovery and setup.


Key Considerations for PoE Power Supply When using a PoE power supply, it is essential to keep the following factors in mind:


Power Limitations: PoE switches adhere to power output standards, such as 802.3af (≤15.4W) or 802.3at (≤30W). While these power outputs are sufficient for most IP cameras, some dome cameras may require higher power output.

Optimal Equipment: It is advisable to use standard PoE switches, as they incorporate a built-in PoE control chip. This chip detects if the connected IPC (Internet Protocol Camera) supports PoE. Power is supplied only if the camera supports PoE, thus safeguarding the device. Non-standard PoE switches, on the other hand, provide power indiscriminately, increasing the risk of equipment damage.

Transmission Distance: Standard Category 5 cables can be used for PoE transmission within a distance of up to 100 meters. For distances ranging from 100 to 180 meters, it is recommended to use enhanced Category 5 or Category 6 cables.

Stability of PoE Power Supply for Cameras PoE power supply involves transmitting electrical power through the twisted-pair network cables. It is suitable for powering and transmitting video signals to nearby video devices. However, the effectiveness of PoE power supply depends on the specific equipment and its power requirements. PoE is an ideal solution for providing power and video transmission to small-scale surveillance systems. The stability of the power supply relies on the quality and compatibility of the devices used, as PoE power supply is just one aspect of a comprehensive system.

By offering a range of outdoor security cameras, including PoE-enabled cameras and 4K resolution options, WEILAILIFE Surveillance provides reliable and advanced surveillance solutions. Their camera video surveillance systems feature continuous recording capabilities and can be integrated into a comprehensive 4-channel PoE camera system. Whether it's an outdoor PoE security camera or an NVR-based security system, WEILAILIFE Surveillance ensures high-quality surveillance and peace of mind for their customers.
