TRENDnet TPE-S44 8-Port 10/100 Power over Ethernet Switch


Power over Ethernet (PoE) was once an enterprise only standard. It was simply not something that the average home (or even small business) could afford. PoE is extremely useful for home security and monitoring; it can be used to extend camera coverage to places where no power has been run.

However, until recently PoE devices and switches were too costly for use in the average home. But as we have shown in a few of our recent reviews, managed switches, KVM over IP and PoE are now an affordable option. Today we take a look at three products from TRENDnet that help bring PoE to home security without breaking the bank; the TPE-S44 10/100 PoE Switch, the TPE-111GI PoE Injector and the TPE-112GS PoE Splitter.

Amazingly, you can get the TPE-S44 from Newegg for $68.99 U.S. Dollars with free shipping; an incredible price for a Power over Ethernet Switch. Can the TPE-S44 and the TPE-112GS PoE Splitters really bring cost effective PoE into your home? Read on to find out.
