Does plugging a laptop or a computer into a PoE switch/RJ45 socket cause any damage?
I am doing some networking cable management and installed some RJ45 jack sockets where PoE devices wil be plugged in, like an Ubiquity AP or some security camras , VoIP phones.
But the workers here are clueless and careless, and I am prepraring for the worst, as always. My main fear is that they will plug in whatever device, without knowing any better.
Does the PoE injector have some sensing mechanism or the PoE switch auto negotiate if a device CAN or CAN’T be powered via ethernet cable?
