Im starting my Wyze adventure after someone gave me a v2 to play with. I know one of the hassles people with multiple cameras face is having to get a receptacle in to supply power. I have seen talks from daisy chaining cameras to poe 5v extractors for use with network cable. Has anyone considered running a 5v distribution board such as what would be used in an access control environment?
Paired with say 16 gauge 2 conductor wire and you could run 40’ and still have roughly 4.7v at the camera. You can get low voltage lock boxes pretty cheap and have the power supply and all inside a nice lockable spot.
Does this sound like a dumb idea?
