PoE Only Cameras?

I have searched far and wide but I cannot find any PoE (power over ethernet) only cameras. What I mean by this is a security camera that only has an PoE ethernet connection and NO extra wiring for the optional power injectors or reset buttons. I want to plug my RJ-45 straight into the camera, not a dongle with the additional wiring. Are there any such cameras out there, or am I stuck drilling a minimum one inch hole to hide the connection in the wall?

The picture below is what I don't want. Are there any 'female' (sorry not PC) ports on the cameras themselves?

Welcome to the forums.

I had to read your post three times to understand it.

You are looking for a camera that has an RJ-45 jack directly on it and no RJ-45 dongle..... or is it the power jack that you don't want.

In your picture is a typical camera dongle. That camera is powered over internet connection OR you can power thru that coaxial power jack...... not both.

Most of the cameras I use come with a cable like that and I never use the DC power in jack.

Thanks for the reply PJmax,

I do not want the optional power connection or dongle, just a female port on the back of the camera. I'm aware that I only need PoE, the optional power injection is just a nuisance. I guess they don't exist.

I just want to run Cat5 so install holes are kept to a minimum.

I wonder if there are any out there that would be easy to rewire/remove the dongle, and replace with the female side.

I just ran into a problem with a Hikvision camera. Water had gotten into the RJ-45 dongle and the jack got corroded/burned. The camera had to go back to the company as that cable is soldered directly into the board.

I don't think they even replaced the cable as it's so hard to remove from the board..... I think the company swapped it out.

There is very little room in most of these cameras for a direct mounted jack.

Usually the mounting base of the camera is plenty large enough to cover the size hole you need for the dongle.

He's looking for a PoE camera with an RJ-45 female jack directly mounted to the back of the camera.... no dongle lead like shown in his picture.

There _may_ be a couple of dome camera models like that, but I doubt it. They already include that power connector because of the need to install these cameras on existing network infrastructure (and POE routers are a significant upgrade).

Another option is to mount the camera on or next to a waterproof box and put the connection in the electrical box.

Though it does look a bit 'industrial' -- often done on commercial jobs.
