We are wanting to control gear using an inline PoE 802.3af compliant injectors to run cameras. We are wanting to have control over the power supplied from the inline injector. Cost is a sticking point otherwise I would go with managed switches, but equally we only use 1 port for the camera so a switch is overkill and increases price too much for the end client.
We currently use a power timer but that limits the resets to a specified time, it would be nice to send a command down the LAN address to recycle the PoE and there force restart the camera.
We have explored the idea of a plug based wifi controlled switch for the poe injector power supply. They are unreliable, and take too long to setup.
So has anyone come across something that I have not seen?
