While I prefer IP PoE, this is a nice camera.

Should be able to use the RJ45 connector on this for data running over cat6/5e ethernet.

If you want you can probably get a PoE splitter to carry both power and data over cat6/5e

Typically when they sell WiFi IP cameras the camera includes and AC power adapter. ( you may want to double check this... ah I see it now "..This camera works with the included Amcrest 12V power supply in order to operate." )

Nice camera indeed, but i will be cautious in regards longevity in outdoor environment. Typically outdoor PTZ cameras are in sealed enclosure to protect PTZ mechanics.

Hi luk350

These are fairly large cameras to allow for the appropriate seals and more durable gears for outdoors use compared to smaller PTZ models whose gears are within protective domes.

They should do fairly well - biggest issue from what I have read is icing up and getting stuck. Probably should do well under a nice roof overhang...( yeah, PTZ cameras are definitely more subjective to weather / water issues.. )

Been waiting for months for the PoE to go on sale again. I guess the wait continues.

I'm glad this wasn't a PoE version, because I would have bought it when I have no use for a 25x.

Hi KCinNE

Yes - that NVR will be able to connect to the video from this camera.

Just need to sync IP, user / password info.
( note my older amcrest POE camera just plug and played into my Dahua OEM NVR without issues .. so you may not even have to mess with IP info.. just user / password )

Please do you yourself a favor and read Mat2000 comment on POE injector option. Not the most elegant solution, but it does convert non-POE to POE. Done it numerous times and those installations still working just fine. With proper dedicated WIFI setup this camera will work just fine, but if you mix home streaming/gaming with security cams, sure it will be less desirable solution.

My grip against this particular camera, that it's quite expensive and potentially can not survive
outdoor for long run.

The reviews state that this camera is POE+ as well as Wi-Fi. I will buy it if it's truly POE.

These are great cameras. I own about 12 amcrest cameras and never had a problem with a single one over the last 5 years. This particular model is very impressive and huge! I didn't realize how big it was until it came in.

How do people use these cameras? Like if you wanted it to zoom into motion, is that in firmware or in Blue Iris? And can it zoom right to where the motion is or is it to predefined spots based on which zone motion is detected?
