Posted on 2006-07-18
Last Modified: 2006-11-18
I need a 5 camera system with power over ethernet capability. I need to be able to watch the cameras remotely and they should be able to record also. Right now I have a 24 port 10/100/1000 switch but no poe ports. I need a solution for all of this for under or close to $1500. Thanks and if this is not possible please let me know. Thanks

ID: 17132629 - This system was recoomended to me.  I have not purchased it yet.  But it looks good for a 4 camera system.  

If you need to have POE.  check this link:
they have a tremendous amount of systems to choose from.

Any more sugestions? I checked out Axis and a bunch of other ones but they all seem extremely expensive. I need soemthing just to keep employees doing there job. 5 Pan and tilt cameras will work. About 7 or 8 stationary ones. I need to be able to remotely monitor from computer and control from computer. Thanks

Take a Look at DLINK, I use them and they work well and are cheaper than most others with decent picture quality.
You can either use a POE switch or use the power convertor that you can also purchase seperatly.

Hello qsco,

Though you didn't mention for what application these will be for; i.e. outdoors or indoors..

You probably need a complete package to get started:

Here's a listing of 2-6 Cameras:

Another package listing with more features:

A few other ideas include:
(At just under $600 for the hardware this might be a low cost alternative).

Since your request called specifically for POE cameras, here are a couple of cameras at the lowest possible price: ($500 each)

This is another search of just PoE cameras:

I'm not sure if you are going to be able to find a solution for PoE including all hardware for under $1500 as you mentioned. Other solutions exsist including solar cameras @ $219 each:

Unfortunatley, the DLINK DCS-2100's and Adpadters is about as cheap as your are going to find.
