Do I need building control approval to install an external security camera powered by power over ethernet?


CCTV Installation and Wiring Options

Today there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a quality CCTV security system. You may decide to go with a traditional analog system, HD-SDI, HD-CVI or even an IP network based security products.

One thing all of these options have in common is you will probably have to run some sort wire to the cameras. Yes, there are some “Wireless Security Camera” solutions available on the market today, but if you do some research you will find that there are a lot of limitations to wireless security cameras. Most CCTV professionals would probably not recommend a wireless system in an environment where up-time and security are critical.

I do want to mention that it is possible to reliably transmit video wirelessly using a device such as the TP-LocoM5 – Wireless Access Point/Bridge as seen here at

But even then you would still need to have a power wire run to the camera or a local...

PoE was invented by PowerDsine back in 1997 and the first power injector ( Midspan) was installed in 1998. Many manufacturespartnered with PowerDsine to make useof this innovation. The Institute ofElectrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)was approached to form an internationalstandard to facilitate wide spreaddeployment of the technology.

In June of 2003 the PoE specificationbecame the IEEE 802.3af standarddefining the delivery of safe power overstandard Ethernet cables, Cat5 andCat5E. PowerDsine assisted the industryfurther by providing a service to Ethernetdevice manufacturers to testconformance with the new standard.

To date, over three hundred terminaldevices have been compliance testedby PowerDsine, including most of theleading voice over IP telephones, wirelessaccess points and IP security cameras.Today the University of New Hampshire,being vendor independent, is the officialconformance testing body appointed bythe IEEE.

Why do you need PoE?

PoE systems provide high reliability, convenience, and low cost. The available 25 Watts per port is sufficient to power many common applications and since PoE systems are classified as low-power systems, they need not be installed nor maintained by licensed personnel.

Power over Ethernet standard development

The original IEEE PoE standard (IEEE 802.3af) provided up to 13-watts and was originally used to power Enterprise IP Phones. In 2009, the IEEE standard 802.3at standard was released with the ability to provide up to 25.5 Watts for apps such as WAPs, Security cameras, access control points, and wireless backhaul systems. The IEEE Committee is now developing a new standard (IEEE802.3bt) which will power up 70+ Watt loads. And, once again, TI is integral in the formation of this standard. The extensive selection of TI Designs are able to support all types of loads including high power UPOE devices. Read and learn more about Power over...

How often should sales data be uploaded from ePoS?

The sales data may be uploaded daily, or in bulk. As long as there is a specified data in the file uploaded, the analytic manager will be able to distinguish the sales volume and correlate it with the correct footfall data.

What is a people counter software?

People counter software consists of two parts:

Web-based component is a web application which enables the user to view people counting report, manage user account and manage location and equipment settings. Windows service component is a windows service to get people counter value every 15 minutes. What is the functions of the Wi-Fi tracking feature?

The functions are as below:

Using the Wi-Fi tracking, we can detect the number of smartphones that are within the premise and the percentage of people that enter the store. To track whether customers are returning customer...
