Since you like Ubiquiti (I love 'em) why not use their "In Wall" WiFi Access Point? What I like about this solution is that it does exactly what you are looking to do all in one box: Wifi Access Point PoE & Data Passthrough port for a VoIP phone, camera, etc. Standard Data port The best part is, it goes into a standard wall or surface mount jack for a ...

Found the hikvision ds-3eo318p-e 240w switch which can do eight 30w ports, but it's expensive. Decided just to plug injectors into the current switch. I started with my router going to a cheap 8-port 130w poe switch (30w per port max, purchased before the cameras), with a 12w fisheye and two 32w ptz on the switch. Added two more 32w ptz to the switch, ...
