Run 7 IP Cameras on Existing Cat5e
Looking for a way to install more IP cameras without running new cables? The most straightforward and cost-effective method is to deploy a PoE-powered switch. The PoE powered switch draws power from an upstream PSE and transmits data and power to multiple PoE cameras over standard Cat5e or Cat6 network cables. Not only does it allow more devices to be added to the network, but it also eliminates the time and expense of rewiring by reusing existing Cat5e cables. For example, by using an outdoor PoE passthrough switch, you can install up to 7 IP cameras with the existing cable. Plus, this PoE passthrough switch features a rugged, waterproof housing that can be pole or wall mounted, making it suitable for almost any environment.
