    I've never used one, but the spec sheet and user guide are here.

    These are also available for considerably less on Amazon.com and other tech sites.

    And I believe to use a non-PoE compliant camera with this you'd need a splitter box on the camera end.

    Does this mean a standard wired camera that has an ac power requirement could be powered with this using PoE?

    If the power needs of the web camera fit within the range for this PoE injector/receiver paid, then the answer is yes. this would work for any network device, router, switch, etc. that fts within the power range.

    I have a PoE compliant web camera and use the Buffalo Technology injector as a single unit since the camera can handle the other end.

    Default Web camera set up for a different reason

    Hello
    I have been here reading and enjoying everyones information and pictures for some time. I have recently come to a point in my life where taking on the care of a parent has begun. I was wondering if the same technology that you all are using outside could be used for me and my family members to watch over our mother. She has agreed that this would make her feel more comfortable in her own home. I was looking for something that could be viewed by about 6 or 7 different people all not living in the home with the camera. Has anyone ever tried this and what type of products would you use? I know this isn't a topic that is normally on this thread we are just looking for an alternative that can make everyone in our family happy and comfortable.

    Julie,

    I have a couple of Panasonic "PetCams" inside my house and they work well. One is wired to the home network and the other is wireless. That is the only difference between the 2 cameras. When we have no one in the house I use them to check on what is going on inside.

    The major one inside is in the dining room area - looks across the kitchen - across the great room - into the sunroom - almost to the front foyer. One can view the image (video) with a browser and control the camera for Pan/Tilt/Zoom. All this can be done off a cell phone also. On the phone it is individual still images - which can be refreshed. The Pan/Tilt/Zoom works on the cell also.

    The cameras also have a built in mic which works pretty well. When the grandkids are at the house their mother logs on to see what the kids are doing. They talk on the phone and the kids show her what they are talking about.

    The models I have are

    wireless BL-C131A
    wired BL-C111A

    Needless to say they should be password protected. Otherwise anybody in the world could spy on Grandma.

    I have one wired and one wireless now, too. No mikes on mine, though. They point outside when we're home.

    We use the built in mic only for the BL-C131A model. You can elect to make it available to users or not.

    I used to have an indoor camera on a window ledge and turned it to be looking outside when we were there. That grew old after a while and we mounted a good outdoor camera over the deck. Normally the inside camera has all access turned off. You can set the features allowed for each user which is nice. Once set up for each person I just change the password to be something only I know and everyone is blocked out. Flip it back to give a specific person access.

    You can control all access (even yours) by turning off port forwarding at the wireless router for that camera's port. So, they are easy to manage and lock down.
