Did you find a great new product that works with LumenCache? Better ways to use the product?

POE Switches

Post by DB »

I have found a couple of lighting controls and switches which are set up for RJ45 POE listed below.

Are these compatible with lumencache?

The Philips parts appear to be standard Ethernet PoE. If so, they will be fine with LumenCache Gen2. Gen1 does not support Ethernet data through the backplane but we have plans to make PoE injector modules that sit in the PDM port sockets but an external Ethernet network switch would still be needed. This is a reasonable solution because often times the LumenCache panel is mounted next to or near the low voltage panel where the home router is located. Simply patch across from the router through the PoE injector and out to the field cat5 wire.
