TRENDnet TPE-S44, TPE-112GS and TPE-111GI Power over Ethernet - Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts


Well, color me impressed; the little inexpensive TPE-S44 provided me with more than enough power and bandwidth to run both of my IP cameras (one at 100 feet) and did not affect the rest of my Gigabit network. I have had 10/100 devices (switches and NICs) cause massive slowdowns when plugged into Gigabit networks, but this was not the case.


The TPE-S44 was also able to handle the traffic created when one of the TV-IP422W cameras was recording an event. Given the price of getting an electrician out to run outside grade power sockets to remote areas of your home, these PoE products from TRENDnet are a steal. You can run IP cameras out to just about any area of your home for the cost of a Cat-5 cable and a splitter if you need it.


If you are thinking about setting up a nice home security system and are worried about the costs, the TPE-S44, the TPE-112GS and even the TPE-111GI should definitely be on your shopping list.
