Does anybody know of a PoE camera that also reports itself as Class 1?
I recently bought a Netgear PoE/PD switch, thinking that I could hang 2 low-power cameras off of it and create a sort of ad-hoc multi-sensor camera setup.
However, I can only get it to power up 1 camera at a time, it won't power 2 PoE devices. I *think* this might be due to the cameras not reporting a specific PoE Class, and just defaulting to Class 0, leaving the switch thinking it won't have power budget for 2 devices. I've tried PoE and PoE+, and a variety of cameras I have on-hand that should be low-power.
Some of the comments on Amazon show people having similar problems, so it may be the switch itself.
This unit does seem to make a good PoE-powered cable extender at the very least.
If someone knows of a true Class 1 PoE camera of any type/style, let me know as I'd like to test and see if I can power some combination of 2 cameras with this device.
