I connected from my PoE Switch to my wyze cam, it powers on, i see POE/Internet connectivity on the adapter, it gets online. but I think it’s still using Wi-Fi? I put it on HD Stream and still only getting 15-50kb/s, I still think it’s using Wi-Fi and I checked Device Info, it shows 3 bars for device info.
Anyone know how to get Wyze cam on PoE and get it to use Ethernet and not use wifi? Or Am I doing something wrong?
Currently using an Orbi mesh system with main unit and 2 satellite units in secured locations to provide coverage to over 3 acres of my property, If I need more WiFi coverage I simply add an additional satellite unit.
You’re kidding, right? That is still much, much more secure than a WiFi radio broadcasting hundreds of feet in every direction and never changing its key. Of course either can be further isolated by network segmentation to protect whatever is considered the internal network.
If someone is climbing onto the side of your house to splice into your cable it’s a little more noticeable than a van blocks away taking its time working on your WPA key.
Okay we’ll do the “agree to disagree” thing then. Interesting you are paying for two separate ISPs. I would bet the less skilled cable jacker you envision could be easily thwarted by a little glue in the RJ45 socket. Not a whole lot of these theoretical intruders walking around with a network crimp kit…
They could plug in one pre-programmed POE WAP and have their WiFi on your network and work from their VAN too, it is not like they need to stick around long…
I only pay for one of them as I am a Telecommunications Engineer for the State, and have a working relationship with the carrier that gets me one unit with no monthly billing and I pay $40/mo. for the one I use for cameras and other IOT devices.
