I have several of the outdoor Logitech Alert 700e cameras and the power adapters are now starting to fail. The replacement adapters are extremely pricey. Does anyone have any other option that they can recommend?
Thanks in advance.

They'll run on poe so you don't need to use their adapters. However if you want to keep the powerline part, you would need another device. Gets sort of clunky then.

Sell them on EBAY and see @looney2ns link.

Realize this thread is over two years old now, but for the possible benefit of other Logitech Alert owners who come across it, I wanted to post here that I just easily and inexpensively replaced a failing 700e power adapter with a $9 iCreatin Wall Plug 48w POE (Power Over Ethernet) injector and a TP-Link AV600 Powerline Ethernet Adapter, which sell as a pair for just $29.

There was no configuration required, literally plug and play straight out of the boxes, and Alert Commander immediately found and connected the camera just as before with the original power supply.

Kudos to Logitech for using reliable hardware standards in these cameras.

As for why we bother to keep our Alert cameras in this era of smart, HD WiFi IP cams: Logitech Alert zone-based motion detection is free, the Windows app is one of the most user-friendly interfaces for residential surveillance (I find BlueIris unnecessarily technical, fwiw), the local camera SD to PC video download works seamlessly, and the Alert mobile app still works pretty well on both Android and iOS for live viewing.

Hi Keith,

What are you doing in late 2020 when Adobe Flash has ended for all browsers. At this point, the Windows Logitech Alert Commander application will no longer work, I think that Blue Iris even. So we have to buy new cameras !! ???

Blue iris works great in 2020. Version 5 was released in last year and was updated a few days ago. You seem to be surprised that you might have to replace a system that was released in 2010!!! Its junk by current standards.

Blue Iris will work fine in 2020, OK, but what will happen to the Logitech warning cameras in 2021 if Adobe Flash can no longer be used, Blue Iris will be able to see them, without Adobe Flash ???

The system is indeed 10 years old but it works flawlessly and the system was very expensive so I don't need new cameras just a fix for that flash issue at the end of 2020.

Hi Keith,

Thank you very much for your post – these Logitech cameras were expensive and work great in the house we moved into a couple of years ago, so why ditch them just because there’s new tech out there?

The iCreatin Wall Plug POE Injector from Amazon worked perfectly to replace the failed power unit. And since had a nearby router connection I needed nothing else besides the $12 iCreatin! All software and a netscanner see it just fine.

That $12 iCreatin unit is a heck of a lot better than spending $200 for an obsolete Logitech power unit!

Thanks for your help.
