I currently use an ESP8266 DevKit board as enOcean gateway that is connected via WiFi. Since the WiFi connection is not available 24/7 I intend to switch to a wired LAN connection instead. A serial connection to the OH machine I not really an option since the gateway would be too far away from my sensors then.
Since I use the micro usb port for powering the device I was thinking about using a POE splitter like for example this one: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08HS5FSFM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_i_HMRBK9DX0EPYC764JK3A?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
However: I have no idea if
- One of these splitters works with a passive 24v output of a unifi Poe injector that I have lying around here.
- I can get an Ethernet connection to an esp8266 from these splitters
- There would be an easier or more straightforward approach in solving this problem (like e.g. a cheap repeater device)
So far I could not find any splitters specifically designed for 24v input. I thought maybe some of you have experience with this?
