Summary: Used this device for PoE supply in setting up security cameras rather than the short power supply that came with the cameras. Occasionally these cameras "freeze" and wanted something that was central and easily accessible that I could "unplug" Cat 5 cable to reset cameras. This device is working great and impressed at the small footprint. Can't go wrong.
Summary: So am helping a friend put in a security camera system in his shop and we have 4 outside cameras. Instead of getting a $300 electrician to run power to them, I decided to run the cameras via PoE. I went here saw that this device was rated well and lots of good helpful reviews so I went with this device. After getting everything all setup I plugged in the cables and only one camera worked. I power cycled the switch and again only one camera came up.
Summary: Got this for a new install of 4 POE IP Cams, it is working as expected. Was factory sealed, all parts where as indicated, and in the box. I got 2x TP-LINK TL-POE200 Power over Ethernet Adapter Kit, 1 Injector, 1 Splitter, up to 100 meters (325 Feet), 12/9/5V power output in addition for some older Foscam I have, though I have not been able to fully test yet.
Summary: I used this to power 2 Dahua 1.3 Megapixel 12V PoE cameras. To the best of my knowledge the device worked properly 24x7 for about 5 months. Then, no POE. Still works as a hub, but I bought this specifically for the cameras and have had to replace it. I swapped out this switch leaving the cameras and cables in place and they came right back on line, so I know it was this unit that failed.
