Eero 6+ Ceiling Mount and PoE
I recently purchased a new home with four Cat 6 wired access points in the ceiling throughout the home. I would like to purchase Eero 6+ access points but need ceiling mounts that will work (even third party) and a switch/injector that will provide the right amount of power which I believe is 15W. Anyone have any recommendations?
For the mount I see "eero E011101 PoE+ Adapter Mounts" on eBay (I am not a professional installer) -- would that work with the new Eero 6+?
For the switch/injector does anyone have any recommended models that would provide the correct power (15W I believe but would like to have someone validate)? I just need something basic (low cost) with four PoE ports for each eero 6+. I also have ethernet plugs around the house so if there is a switch that also has non-PoE ports I have 8-10 plugs but unlikely more that 4 would be used.
I am not a professional so assume I don't know anything in your response. :)
For example, would this switch work? It has PoE budget of 64W across 4 PoE ports. Also has 4 additional ports $60 on Amazon...
Also thinking this 5V/3.0A PoE splitter for each access point will work right? https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Standard-1000Mbps-Raspberry-USB0503G/dp/B09GM8FB3X/ref=sr_1_9?crid=1ROVS9WPZXODV&keywords=4%2Bpoe%2Bsplitter%2B5v%2F3.0a&qid=1662146708&sprefix=4%2Bpoe%2Bsplitters%2B5v%2F3.0a%2Caps%2C197&sr=8-9&th=1
I don't know of any way to power eero access points with PoE. Hope I'm wrong.
