Video Overview of Mx2Wire

By: John Honovich, Published on Dec 13, 2009

Mobotix has released a video overview of their Mx2Wire product offering that allows reuse of existing cabling for powering and transmission of network cameras and IP devices. The video is embedded below:

In the second half of the video, the speaker cites an example of installing the Mx2Wire to extend Internet access in a house where wireless would not be effective. However, we are skeptical of the fit of Mx2Wire compared to powerline networking devices that are commonly used and inexpensive (see positive Amazon consumer reviews for Linksys and Netgear kits for under $150 USD). While Mx2Wire provides a smaller form factor and better aesthetics, at almost 3x the price, most users will find it difficult to justify the price premium.

For background, see our Mx2Wire product overview.
