Home plug is a fast and simple way to connect to the Internet with easy connection between your computers, games consoles, laptops, smart phones anywhere in your home where you have a mains socket.

You need at least two home plugs to create the connection. Traditionally, one plug is connected to your Internet router, the 2nd plug is placed in the remote area, such as your lounge, study or kitchen. The Plug connected to the router, takes the Internet signal and transfers it along your mains wiring, the 2nd plug takes the signal and distributes it via the Ethernet port directly to your device.

The Solwise PoE home plug adapter has a socket for both data and 802.3af (48V) Power over Ethernet. This means that you can use the network cable for both powering your PoE enabled device and for network data. This is ideal for Access Points, low power IP Cameras or VoIP phones, anything that supports Power over Ethernet.

The Solwise PL1200AV2 is a Smart Link plug which means that two transmitters are able to transmit on any two of three plug pairs: Live, neutral and earth giving you cleaner connection across your mains from plug to plug.  The Solwise 1200AV2 adapter also features faster processing power.  

The built-in PoE Injector provides 55V/48V power via CAT5E / CAT6.  The solution is compliant with IEEE1901 , Homeplug AV and Homeplug AV2, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV2 devices and other suppliers of IEEE1901 PLC (Powerline Line Communication) devices and IEEE 802.3at /af compliant Midspan or Endpoint (Option) PSE.

Package includes 1 network cable.

Remember, you will need at least two home plug devices to form a home plug connection. More home plug AV2 devices can be added to further share your network.

Please note this plug is compatible with other AV products but not 85Mbps devices. It will co-exist with the 85Mbps products but not interact with them. See our compatibility chart here
