POE stands for Power Over Ethernet. Basically it allows network installers to power certain devices over the network cables they install. These devices often include CCTV cameras, VOIP handsets and wireless access points. The way it works is we install a POE switch, which is the central hub that network connections plug into, or we provide POE injectors for each device that requires it.
The advantages are:
- Removal of unsightly power cables for cameras or wireless access points at the devices themselves
- Ability to power devices in positions where there is no existing power point (such as ceilings or outside)
- All power for devices in one central location where you can then install an inverter to keep them running during power cuts
