I am wondering if anyone has any input or direction on POE devices.


Long story:


I have 4 video cameras (hikvision 3MP dome/bullet cameras) and they are powered via POE cable and I have four cables run up my wall into my attic. I then had the cables pop out of my eaves and plugged into the cameras.


I am looking at changing up my system a little bit and I would love to be able to have POE devices that do not need to be routed directly to my POE switch or router because I cannot cable through the floor to the basement of my house.


I am wondering if there is any device that can do the following:

Obtain internet connectivity via WiFi

Let me plug in a POE device via cat6 cable to provide power+internet to the device.


Basically, instead of a switch that is plugged into my router, is there any type of poe device that can give internet and power to a device without having to be connected directly via cable to my router?


I see a lot of devices that are meant to be WiFi hotspots that you connect via poe to your router to give WiFi to an area, but I am kind of looking for the opposite of that device... something that takes WiFi and lets me use it as a device to power POE devices.


Please let me know if you guys think of anything, I really appreciate it!

Use a powerline network adapter and a POE injector.
