Switch for POE Based Lighting.

Tue Jun 21, 2022 7:20 pm

Im in the process of looking at new home design, and POE based lighting.
Looks like the closest current product is: NetPower_16
Ideally wall mount version, greater ports would be nice.
Most important is Poe+, and lots of current.
I would expect to power these directly from battery, with feed from solar for charge, or mains.
Note be nice to have containers for Home Control software load, but not required.
A separate router could run that.
As its a home, and not really expecting to "change" lighting much. Seems like "wall" mount,
with direct termination like in the NetPower is good.

True POE+, with ability to monitor power usage and 802.3 af status per port is important.

Ethernet cable is "cheaper" now than 110V wiring.

A switch with a mix of PoE+ and PoE++ 802.3bt would be ideal. Most of Ubiquiti's newer switches do this. It would be nice for Mikrotik to also make these. It would also be awesome if Mikrotik made something to compete with their USW-Flex.
