Hey folks so i got this hikvision poe switch DS-3E0105P-E/M(B) and was wondering, can i utilize this for non poe devices just to add them to the network. eventually the older cameras will be replaced with poe cameras but for now i just want to utilized it on the network via cable. the cameras are currently wifi installed but the wifi antennas appears to be faulty so instead of running multiple cables all the way back to the house i opt for one cable from the router to the switch. the cameras currently installed are reolink rlc-410w.

Hi @atomictt

Yes, there should be no issue running non-PoE devices on that switch.

Most modern switches are smart enough to identify whether or not the device connected needs PoE.

Hi @Dan appreciate the answer. thank you very much. last night i tried an old router to it and it seemed okay lol so now that you've put some additional light to it i will safely try this connection. thank you
