Thanks for the information. Trust me, I have had many different camera’s and even hooked up PoE NVR systems as well. My personal goal is to get to one ecosystem and to minimize the maintenance on additional hardware. In my case, I am setup for which ever I decide to do and not beholden to one company at this point. In addition, I have no issue with the Wyze Products. Yes there has been some issues, but nothing to cause me to abandon it. But I would not go as far as to say It’s Dumb to use PoE and associated Splitter to power the Wyze Cam V3’s. But you are allowed your opinions. In addition, I did not want to run electrical drops to the locations where I put my Camera’s, it is far easier and safer to run an Ethernet Cable with PoE on it.
Everyone has their own use cases for what they need and how they would like to do it. You have went the direction of the NVR and PoE Cables, which is a reasonable alternative when using PoE, but I have decided to be setup for any devices I would like to utilize in the future.
As stated, I have no issue with Wyze and their products, and am a firm believer that everyone has the right to setup their system which best fits their needs. As a beta tester for Wyze, my goal is to provide solutions and alternatives to issues individuals are having. Using Ethernet Cable with PoE splitter and switch is a viable solution to someone needing to get power to a location easily.
