  • Power Consumption vs Specification
  • Calculating Power Budget
  • PoE via Switch, MidSpan or NVR
  • The Top 5 PoE Misunderstanding

PoE vs Low Voltage

All cameras need electrical power to operate.

'Power over Ethernet' (PoE) uses a single cable to connect a camera to both the data network and a power supply. In most cases, powering cameras before the advent of PoE meant using low voltage power using separate power supplies and dedicated power wiring. PoE eliminates the second cable / supply.

Using this single cable with power built into switches saves cost compared to low voltage power supplies, typically ~$10-30 per camera. See: PoE vs Low Voltage Power Supplies Cost Compared.

PoE Almost Always Used

PoE is supported and used, in practice, in almost all professional IP cameras and installations.

Exceptions To PoE Use

There are some exceptions where PoE is not used with IP cameras:
