    Help with cable run layout?

    That is pretty good cable. The jacket is heavier than most outdoor rated cable, and ubnt makes specific RJ45 connectors for it. The connectors are fully shielded and the shield and the heavy duty nature of the cable makes some say it is harder to work with. I would use it for this...

    Long Distance POE

    This is where we go down the rabbit hole.... if there is any break in the run, (and in our area there are plenty of critters that love to nibble (just a little bit mind you) on buried wire) how are you going to fix it without digging up the entire mess? I will not work on any direct burial...

    Long Distance POE

    The pulling force required for these long runs is a lot higher than I feel comfortable with. I treat cat cable pretty gently to avoid damage. (I am suspicious that a lot of cable runs I find to be bad have been treated roughly by previous installers). (I also test every run with a GOOD (not...

    Long Distance POE

    These POE adapters are actually made by Dahua. https://www.amazon.com/Loryta-LR1002-1ET-LR1002-1EC-Converter-Transmission/dp/B07RWT8SDX/ref=sr_1_7?crid=1EUEGXJI3RDX2&keywords=poe+over+coax&qid=1568471201&s=gateway&sprefix=POE+over%2Caps%2C196&sr=8-7 As discussed before, I would not pull super...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Sounds like problems in the cloud. As the app was/is pulled from the android App Store they may be having a bunch of problems. But when it is a free cloud service, and when having problems, the normal methodology is don't ask, don't tell and deny, deny, deny...... So you may try a dozen...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    You really don't want to hook up a 48V POE injector ( 802.11at or af but especially 48V passive) to this gadget. It will let the smoke out of a 24V passive POE device.

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    H Have you two EC dwellers tried this yet? It is a long shot but it is a possibility. I missed the fact that both of you were not in North America..... LaView app is also worth trying. I have a feeling the use the same server (or data centre) but may have a different list of ID numbers.

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    This is an issue with their (probably HikVision's) cloud. They are missing a range of ID numbers in their database. Help line probably not going to be very helpful until (if) you can get to tier 3. It might resolve itself in a day or two. Exchanging it for another in the same batch...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    I thin you meant VA, which is how the power of these transformers are rated. VA = VxC which is also the definition of watts. So the VA rating is important when it is too low, but makes no difference when it is greater than what is required. The higher VA rated transformers tend to be bigger...
