We have put 10 of these in at a Logistics company to cover various parts of their yard & storage facilities. At this stage we are very happy with the results. We have 3 that are on solar power that are giving us some grief as they are 24V AC were as everything else is 12V DC.
Picture wise these are excellent cameras. We get full colour 24x7 as there is sufficient ambient lighting. One failed in the first week & was replaced without issue by our supplier. Two cameras move to an alternate parking postion each night & return to their usual day position each morning without hiccup.
We are using Synology Surveillance Station to manage the cameras & this works fine from the users viewpoint as they just need to PTZ & replay footage. No complaints on this to date.

The units come with a 60W output PoE injector but that needs 240V AC input.
The IEEE PoE standards are for DC output though.
On the applications page for Camswitch it has:
Re-use legacy low voltage power supplies. Contact Veracity for 24VAC applications.
I will contact the local distributor to find out just what that means.

The cameras will only draw 60W when heater is on & PTZ in use. In idle mode they draw less than 1 amp. Not all cameras are on the one solar setup. We have a 150AH battery with a 140w panel at this stage. But the existing inverter is pulling too many amps which is killing the battery. We are testing some different ways of getting 24V AC & 12VDC for the various pieces of equipment
