I see that they sell POE adapters that would still require a separate power supply. I bought one and it doesn't work with a POE switch.

Trying to avoid the need to add power adapter but simply step down the 48v to 12v from the switch to the Foscam camera.

I see that they sell POE adapters that would still require a separate power supply. I bought one and it doesn't work with a POE switch.

Trying to avoid the need to add power adapter but simply step down the 48v to 12v from the switch to the Foscam camera.

Not sure of:

1. Do you have a PoE injector or PoE switch and if so what is the output voltage and does it support active or passive PoE.

2. Your distance from the PoE power supply and the camera in feet?

3. What are your cameras DC power requirements? I ask because you don't mention the Foscam IP Camera model.

Do you mean something like this?  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SM196AE

Which for Foscam IP Cameras can be 5V or 12V DC. The prior post quoted above. Shows a IEEE 802.3af compliant active PoE splitter that can only support 12V DC output.

Whereas the ones below are IEEE 802.3af compliant and use Active PoE and support 5V and 12V DC by simply using a switch on the Active PoE splitter selecting the voltage to deliver to the camera.

Active PoE will also get you greater distances and better IP Camera stability than passive PoE can with the dynamic loads that IP Cameras can have such as IP Camera startup and when PTZ motors are in use and/or IR lights are on.

Foscam suggests to use IEEE 802.3af compliant Active PoE equipment with any/all of their IP Camera models that do not natively support PoE. Because changes in loads ("IP Camera startup, using PTZ motors and/or IR lights going on") can cause IP Camera instability issues, without Active PoE and using IEEE 802.3af compliant PoE equipment when the Foscam IP Camera model does not natively support PoE.

Foscam offers Active PoE Injectors/Splitters sold as a pair or separately:

http://foscam.us/accessories.html/

Note: It's never a good idea to use passive PoE with IP Cameras of any brand and model that don't natively support PoE. Because they have such a wide possible range of current usage. IP Camera startup, PTZ motors and IR lights.

Unless the distance from the injector/switch is less than 100 feet and the IP Cameras voltage requirement is 12V DC without active PoE and a splitter. If the IP Camera voltage requirement was 5V DC then it's never a good idea to go over a distance of 10 feet without active PoE and a splitter.

Example:

The foscam poe kit is a ripoff...buy this kit here

Your post seems to indicate that you want to use the camera without an injector for each camera...you can do this if you buy a poe switch and then simply use a splitter at each camera.

Your suggested PoE equipment ("Click on image below") is not IEEE 802.3af compliant which Foscam says is required for all their non native PoE IP Camera models:



The person may not need both the injector and the splitter. Which is why I asked the questions I did ("And await the answers to those questions for potential other suggestions and savings") and why I provided a link to both of them sold as a ("Kit") and individually.

Also. They are not a ("ripoff") they work well and meet Foscam suggested PoE requirements for Foscam IP Cameras that don't natively support PoE and are rock solid.

If you would bother to look at my link you would see that there are 3 options as well, splitter, kit, injector...
Each option is much cheaper than the foscam. The tp link kit i linked to is extremely well reviewed...no reason to overpay foscam by 15 dollars...

Why because you are a moderator on the foscam forum? Please give me one reason that the user should spend the addition 15 dollars..of course its a viable option - its just a stupid one..STOP suggesting that folks toss their hard earned money out the window. Foscam vs tp-link, this is not a difficult decision.
If OP for whatever reason wants that specific unit then they can get it here for less.

Your item does not have a specific warranty for 1 year from the seller as the PoE equipment I suggested does in fact have. That's one of several reasons.

Another. Your suggested PoE equipment ("Click on image below") is not IEEE 802.3af compliant which Foscam says is required for all their non native PoE IP Camera models:



The Foscam PoE choices I provided are viable options at their prices and meet what Foscam says are their 802.3af Active PoE requirements to use PoE with all their non native PoE IP Camera models. 

That said. I will let the poster decided what they want to do. They are asking, not you.

Please try to get over me posting a link as a suggested source for PoE equipment without needing to go crazy about it like you also do in the other forum. Even with another name here, you still are the same as there. LOL.

It's a link.

Don
Yes you are correct. It does not have a 1 year warranty, its has a TWO year warranty with advanced replacement.
http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=234&model=TL-POE200#spec
Any other reasons? I would never trust foscams warranty..they refused to remedy the issues I had with my 9820.
Even if the tp link unit didnt have a warranty at all, how in the world does it make sense to pay 15 dollar for a 1 year warranty on a 25 dollar item?
Stop peddling the overpriced foscam...

If by the same you mean calling out your BS, then yes. You made a suggestion, I pointed out that its WAY overpriced. In an attempt to peddle foscam (because you moderate their forum) you keep pushing the foscam device knowing that is in no way superior to the tp-link..In fact we now know that it has a shorter warranty. Yet you still keep peddling it..hmmm I wonder why?

First I'll point out your tendency to edit posts so as to make it appear as though i did not respond to you..You took your prior post, deleted it and replaced it with this.
Second, Total nonsense as usual...How can foscam require a POE standard for a NON poe camera...THAT MAKES NO SENSE..the splitter will output the voltage you set it at..The fact that you made that statement shows your intentionally misleading, because I know for a fact you know better.
Third, the OP can purchase the injector and the splitter in my like WITH ARE 802 compliant and it would still be 8 dollars cheaper and have a two year advance exchange warratny..

I am still chuckling about the fact that foscam recommends using 802.3af devices with their NON poe cameras...common are you joking?
Please show me the link, that would show their complete incompetence.
The tp-link is far better in terms of warranty and great positive reviews.. STOP making stuff up..The op can use either the kit, or buy the splitter and injector, and will be fine...The lengths you go to to peddle this junk is incredible...

The foscam poe kit is a ripoff...buy this kit here
http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-POE200-Ethernet-Injector-Splitter/dp/B004UBUB7C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1432062665&sr=8-1&keywords=poe+kit

Your post seems to indicate that you want to use the camera without an injector for each camera...you can do this if you buy a poe switch and then simply use a splitter at each camera.

The person may not need both the injector and the splitter. Which is Why I provided a link to both of them sold as a ("Kit") and individually.

Also. They are not a ("ripoff") they work well and are rock solid.

Don
If you would bother to look at my link you would see that there are 3 options as well, splitter, kit, injector...
Each option is much cheaper than the foscam. The tp link kit i linked to is extremely well reviewed...no reason to overpay foscam by 15 dollars...

Looked at your link and still say the Foscam PoE choices are viable options at their prices.

Don
Why because you are a moderator on the foscam forum? Please give me one reason that the user should spend the addition 15 dollars..of course its a viable option - its just a stupid one..STOP suggesting that folks toss their hard earned money out the window. Foscam vs tp-link, this is not a difficult decision.
If OP for whatever reason wants that specific unit then they can get it here for less.

Your item does not have a specific warranty for 1 year. That's one of several reasons.

That said. I will let the poster decided what they want to do. They are asking, not you.

Don
Yes you are correct. It does not have a 1 year warranty, its has a TWO year warranty with advanced replacement.
http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=234&model=TL-POE200#spec
Any other reasons? I would never trust foscams warranty..they refused to remedy the issues I had with my 9820.
Even if the tp link unit didnt have a warranty at all, how in the world does it make sense to pay 15 dollar for a 1 year warranty on a 25 dollar item?
Stop peddling the overpriced foscam...

Please try to get over me posting a link as a suggested source for PoE equipment without needing to go crazy about it like you also do in the other forum. Even with another name here, you still are the same as there. LOL.

It's a link. Relax, the poster will decide.

Don
If by the same you mean calling out your BS, then yes. You made a suggestion, I pointed out that its WAY overpriced. In an attempt to peddle foscam (because you moderate their forum) you keep pushing the foscam device knowing that is in no way superior to the tp-link..In fact we now know that it has a shorter warranty. Yet you still keep peddling it..hmmm I wonder why?

Your suggested PoE equipment ("Click on image below") is not IEEE 802.3af compliant which Foscam says is required for all their non native PoE IP Camera models:



The Foscam PoE choices I provided are viable options at their prices and meet what Foscam says are their 802.3af Active PoE requirements to use PoE with all their non native PoE IP Camera models. 

It's a link. Relax, the poster will decide.

The facts are the facts "fenderman".

Foscam does sell IP Camera models that natively support PoE. These requirements are for Foscam IP Camera models that don't natively support PoE.

If the poster has any doubts about these Foscam requirements. They are welcome to contact their authorized Foscam seller directly. Who will confirm the requirements I stated here.
