Re: Can RPi3B Supply Power Over Ethernet (POE) for IP Camera?

As above an Injector and Splitter is required. It should be feasible to implement with a ethernet single cable between the RPi and Camera, though it largely depends on how one can set the IP Addressing of the Camera. @fotl You've lost me there. I cannot see how setting the IP Addressing of the Came...

PoE does not work like you envisage, the unused wires in the Ethernet Cable are used to carry the power: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_over_Ethernet PoE can be supplied by separate pairs or by superimposing the supply to the device being powered on data carrying pairs as that Wikipedia articl...
