Tagged: Zavio POE injector
Bought the Zavio D6111 mega-pixel dome and a POE power injector kit from your site. My Mac can find the camera using Safari and Bonjour as long as I use the normal power cord and a cat5 patch cable going to the router. When I use the POE injector and two cat5 patch cables, Bonjour cannot find the camera. The blue power light does come on on the camera, but Bonjour can no longer find the camera.
Do I need to use crossover cables instead of patch cables?
Do I need to use cat5e instead of regular cat5?
Thank you for using our support forum. Yes cat5e is recommended for Power over Ethernet IP cameras. Sometimes cat5 does not work especially at longer distances. You DO NOT need to make a crossover cable. Please just try cat5e.
Let us know if we can help further.
Using cat5e cables did the trick. Everything now works perfectly.
Glad to hear that worked for you. Please let us know if CCTV Camera Pros can help in the future.
I had a camera system installed a while back all worked fine till one day about 6:00 pm 4 of my camera zavio d6111 went down and i use nuuo software and out of 8 cameras 4 dont work it shows a black screen on 4 cameras and a small green box on the lower right botton of the picture screen. i running a coax cable because of a long run about 400 feet i have a highwire quad 4 port i am using but i thought it went out so i bought another highwire quad and it is doing the same thing. my highwire quad is about max 50 feet from the cameras, i am using a power supply to power the quad and the run cat 5 to 4 of the cameras but i noticed the cameras have a another power supply to power the cameras but i thought the highwire quad is suppose to power the cameras. so i unpluged the separate power supplys. hard to think 4 cameras went out the same day and time with no storms in the area and no one around, do you have any clue to help me out.
