@martinbarrett_533327547867360 The ethernet cable on the E1 Outdoor is for data only, faster connection to your router than wifi, it's not POE power over ethernet. The low voltage cable powers the camera. I wish Reolink made the E1 Outdoor POE.
@martinbarrett_533327547867360 you could use a PoE splitter, so you only need to run 1 cable if you wish to use it without wifi.You do need a place to store said splitter though as those are not water resistant. A simple (water-resistant) electrical box will do for that.
I never heard a PoE splitter before.I will order one and see if it works.Thanks.
@martinbarrett_533327547867360 And if your router doesn't provide POE then you need a POE switch. See if having a power socket near the camera is cheaper.
@martinbarrett_533327547867360 as of my reply today, you are right. Only models indicating they're PoE actually have it.Not a problem for me since I'd buy those wifi cams to actually use over wifi (with the exception of the E1 Pro that I have, since its literally next to the router I just plugged in an ethernet cord). Your best bet for an outdoor PTZ would be the Trackmix (more compact) or the 823A (dedicated optics for zoom) if you want PoE.
823A is too big.The problem is I don't own a smartphone, So wifi is no good for me.Thanks for your help.
