Which POE+ Switch To Use For 66 Cameras?

Looking for guidance as which reliable POE + switch to use for an upcoming 66 camera job, nothing to elaborate w/300 MP total. I got burned on my last job by relying on what is available at distribution centers. I've been told data switches are not created or designed as switches made specifically for surveillance applications???

-POE ****** *********** *** **** : don't give Night extra consumption to other cameras (Heater / IR )

-MAC ********* with multiple ******* par port when you cascade switches or duplicate poe ports (some switches can't do that ... and then IT security is becoming very poor)
