Model: TL-SG105PE  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.0 Build 20200415 Rel.55282

Dear support,

this managed switch allow to disable specific ports and that's good.

I attached 4 POE IP-Cameras to the switch.

 

The strange thing happens when I try to disable a port to shutdown a camera.

Actually, disabling a port interrupt the data flow but leave the power of port active!

 

So it doesn't disable completely a port, and that's no good, at least for this specific application or needs.

 

How can i solve the problem?

Is there a new firmware I can use?

 

Could you add an option to disable the POE as well, so we can better control the behaveour of the switch?

 

 

Thanks

Regards.

Daniele

This switch is an Easy Smart model and should not be able to do this.
To achieve the results you want, you may want to consider some managed L2/3 switches.

Hi Virgo.

Why not? Is there any rule?

What does "Easy Smart" mean?

At the HW level the switch is capable of control the POE on any single port independently, so that should not be a problem.

The software/firmware is already able to restart a device not responding if we enable the option in the web configuration, and this is the proof that the switch is able to shutdown a device if a specific condition is verified.

What is missing, in the web configuration, is the ability to disable the POE on a specific port.

It' just a matter of adding another listbox "Enable/Disable" on a column "POE", on any single port, and to send the command to the firmware, something that a developer can do in 2 hours or less.

Here below an example i did in 5 minutes:

Do you like it? 

Is it "Easy Smart" enough?

 

 

Could you suggest a TP-Link managed L2/L3 switch having this feature?

 

Thanks

Regards.

Daniele

Hi Virgo,

 

thanks for your advice but the two products are very far from each other to be comparable in terms of price and ports.

The TL-SG105PE has 4 POE+ ports, cost about 50-60 euros and i can install 3 of them close to the IP cameras as i did (so cables are easier to install and fairly short).

TL-SG3428MP has 24 POE+ ports, costs about 850 euro and all the cables have to be attached to it, so they have to cross floors of the house and have to be longer and more difficult to install.

 

More over, the configuration of TL-SG3428MP is fantastic but exceeds my current needs.

 

In the near future, I hope to have a configuration page like i showed on TL-SG105PE, if @TP-Link will have a look at this thread...

 

Thanks.

Regards.

Daniele
