Is anyone running any IP Camera or other devices via POE? Wall mounted tables with POE to them?
I had purchases a used FastIron 648P switch on ebay a while back and went to play with it this back weekend. I am currently using a Norco 4020 inside a rackmount and added the the POE switch inside it the other day.
But, man is that POE switch LOUD!! I know that due to the small fan blades at high rpms is needed to keep it cool, but it is loud!
So if anyone is running POE devices, what hardware are you using? Have you had success with those POE “injectors”.
And also, for you home (businesses aside), how many POE ports are you really using? Is it worth the effort?
I’m also in the middle of a mental debate though of downsizing all hardware. It used to be the ‘go big or go home’ approach and have a server with 20 drives in it. But now HDs are getting bigger and cheaper every day, and the need for that large of case and space doesn’t seem necessary any more?
btw. The Norco 4020 runs on ESXI and host a number of VM’s including OH on Ubuntu, and then separate other VM’s for downloads along with Unraid for NAS sharing.
