ESP32 + PoE kit / firmware

WiFi transmission is unreliable. A sensor needs power anyway.

For (security) cameras my premise already has ethernet cables in place and a PoE (power over ethernet) switch. There are even spare ethernet cables and free ports on the switch.

Wouldn’t it be nice if a sensor.community device is powered and communicates over hard wired ethernet?

ESP32-WROOM-32 with PoE boards are available at Olimex for € 17,95 and a
LilyGO TTGO ESP32-WROOM-32 PoE is priced at € 28,50

I would have probably opted for buying a POE ethernet version if that had been an option, although the WiFi seems to be fine.

it’s very interesting me too
