A smart home control system is a great way to quickly interact with your smart appliances. It allows you to check the status of your smart appliances at a glance and easily interact with your devices. Combine it with a wall-mounted tablet and you have the ultimate smart home control panel.
A traditional way to power the smart home dashboard is generally through the DC plug, and then using the Internet through a single network cable. We can use a new way- Ethernet Power. Through the integration of PoE power supply and networking, the power supply can be achieved through a network cable, eliminating the cumbersome connection of DC plugs. At the same time, it is also compatible with Raspberry Pi, enabling Raspberry Pi to be used in smart home systems.
So how to realize the PoE power supply for control panels? It's actually very easy, you need to install a Procet PoE adapter between the PoE switch and the control panel. As shown below.
Some families may only have ordinary switches or routers, which means that there is no PoE network. In this case, a PoE injector would help. The wiring is in the picture below.
We know that iPad is the most commonly used control panel at present. It supports a lightning input interface. However, there are many control panels that support USB-C interface. How can we match these different interfaces? Procet offers 2 types of PoE adapters: USBC output port and lightning output port, if you still feel confused about the installation, contact us to talk with Procet engineer directly.
