I apologize if something similar has been posted. Didn’t find my answers on the search or while browsing.

I’m trying to set up two indoor and two outdoor IP cameras with PoE. I know which cameras I’d likely be using and where I’ll be placing them, my main issue is cable management.

For the cameras that are outdoors, will I have to run a cat5e from the camera through the house and to my router (which has available ports) or can I use the Ubiquiti Loco as a virtual cat5 cable? If I can use the Loco to transmit power and data (via the included PoE injector), then the next question is… do I still have to connect the Loco via Cat5 to the router? Do I need two Loco’s – one at the router, one at the outdoor camera? If I still have to run cables across the house from the outside, then maybe using the Loco’s defeats the purpose. What splitters, injectors, switches will I need to keep things as clutter-free as possible with this set up?

Any advise so I can make some headway on my project would be appreciated.

Unfortunately the Nano TP-LocoM5 requires line of sight. This will not work properly indoors as the walls will not permit the signals to go through. You could use some routers and setup a Point to Point Bridge installing DD-WRT firmware and set one to AP and the other as a Client Bridge. Old linksys or other Cisco Routers work best without breaking the bank, make sure to install the firmware onto your routers before setting up the bridge.

Good day, you can try using the Mini Powerline Ethernet Adapter Kit. They are cost effective and easy to configure.
