See Our 5-volt Kit “In the Wild”

Check out this blog post from a WiFi-Texas customer who’s using one of our 5 volt kits to power a non-PoE Dropcam IP camera:

Ideally, I wanted to setup a Dropcam in it’s place, but I couldn’t find a cheap way to power it since it would be located in the ceiling. I had already run CAT5e to the location since the 7080R was a PoE camera. After a few weeks of searching, I came across this product from WiFi-Texas.com. This USB over Ethernet device is great for iPads and other devices that require power from USB.

Thanks for the nice write-up!

Solutions for Cameras that do NOT support PoE out of the box

Foscam and Wanscam and other new cameras from China do not support PoE out of the box. Our active PoE splitters allow these cameras to operate up to 328 ft from the injector. The indoor models need 5v, and outdoor need 12v – you can mix and match our WS-POE-5v and WS-POE-12v splitters onto our WS-POE-8-24v60w injector for up to 8 cameras, or our WS-POE-12-24v120w for up to 12 cameras from one power supply. We extend Foscam power via PoE without loss.
