  1. You guys are awesome. Thank you very much. I figured the Ubiquiti being unique to their equipment was the issue after reading a lot about their stuff. Thanks for the suggestion. Those look great. Question: The cameras will be recording 1080p in H.264 compression. Will the PoE router you listed handle that? I imagine 100 Mb/s (12.5MB/s) is enough considering their PDF (http://www.hikvision.com/UploadFile/image/2013102202272629895.pdf) says the bitrate is 32 Kbps ~ 16 Mbps. Just making sure (since I already messed up once just by reading stuff). Lol yeah. Just found them and figured they'd work. Didn't realize they were proprietary. Thanks. Interesting to know. Thanks. Yeah, I probably won't mess with the pins. The distance is around 30-40 meters (guesstimation). Since CAT 6A has a distance of 100m+, I figured it would work fine. As far as I can tell, there's no interference, and my signal tester shows that the PoE is making it from one end to the other with a strong signal (it doesn't give wattage, amperage or voltage, just a light).
  2. Hi, I recently bought two of these cameras: http://www.amazon.com/Hikvision-DS-2CD2132-I-Fixed-Focal-Camera/dp/B00EJXK0I6 . Here are the specs: Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I 3MP Dome Camera 3MP (2048 x 1536) high resolution Full HD1080p real-time video Up to 30m IR True day/night IP66• Vandal-proof It supports PoE. Here's a video showing it's installation using PoE: My Router does not support PoE, so I used these PoE Injectors to add PoE to the Ethernet cable: http://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-Poe-15-Output-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B002R7JPGE I would think my units were broken/defunct, but getting two that don't work at the same time is very unlikely, I would think. The distance is <100 feet (about 50-70 feet), and I'm using Cat 6A, so I doubt it's distance related. It crosses some electrical lines, but never runs parallel to them closely. I used a network tester to verify that the cables are crimped correctly and that PoE was indeed being added to the line. Everything checks out. However, my problem is that these cameras do not turn on. They do not appear on my network. It's almost like the PoE Injector just destroys the connection, and adds PoE to the Ethernet cable leaving nothing left. I haven't dealt with PoE at all before this, so I may not be understanding how it works. What could my issue be? What should I check? Are my PoE Injectors incompatible with this setup? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Tremor.
