Is the DCS-934L PoE Capable
« on: March 02, 2015, 01:29:17 PM »

Hi All,
Is the D-Link DCS-934L camera PoE (Power over Ethernet) capable? Since I have not seen anything in the User Guide calling it out, my guess is "no" it does not. But I could be wrong. Thanks in advance for any info!

Thanks,

We can presume if PoE isn't listed anywhere in the specs, it would not be supporting.

Call and ask D-Link sales on which model does if there is one.

D-Link typically adds the word "PoE" in the name of camera models supporting power over Ethernet.

I agree with the above.

You could investigate future at dlink website user manual.
 
GroupOn has it dirt cheap.

Ryat3,
The Groupon is what led me here asking about it. I have reviewed the user documentation but again it makes no mention that PoE is supported on it. I'll try to follow-up with D-Link at some point today. Strange to think that here in 2015, a lot of devices that use both Ethernet and power don't come with PoE as a standard. Oh well....I report back once I have the "Official" word from D-Link.

Thanks,

The DCS-934L is the successor to the DCS-932L/933L, neither of which supports PoE. This latest camera appears to be an upgraded version of the same product line. PoE is available on other D-Link camera models.

**UPDATE**
Yeah so it has been confirmed by D-Link Tech Support, No PoE on these Camera's. :( Also I find that the provided power cable is only like five and a half feet long, it should be more like seven to ten feet long in my opinion. Oh well. Has anyone done (or know) if a custom CAT5e cable can be made? (For that one cable solution) What I mean is taking a CAT5e cable and terminating pins 1&2 and 3&6 (White/Orange and White/Green Pairs) on an RJ45 jack for the data (Camera), and separating the White/Blue and White/Brown Pairs and terminating that on a plug for power for the camera? A very custom cable indeed, but one wonders if that may work?

I can only presume attempting to apply PoE signals over a LAN connection to these model cameras would only cause irreparable damage and would not be advised to do so.

I'm not sure my idea is being interpreted right. So I drew it out. (See Below)

Let me know whatcha think?

Technically you could however the power line may introduce noise on the line or vs versa. I recommend keeping them separate.

Thanks for your input, I'm I wrong in thinking that since PoE typically delivers 5v output and this AC adapter delivers 5v output that what we're talking about here is kind of a non-issue. Just saying how would that be different with the same voltage going through a CAT5e to a device that uses PoE?

Possible it could be a non issue however the handling of voltages over PoE vs your method could have some differences. Overall seems like a hassle to use your method rather then getting a PoE supported camera if your network supports PoE. You have to have PoE supporting networking HW as well as the camera I believe.
