Ethernet Power Adapter & 3rd Party Ethernet Adapters

 

How it works

Mevo has built in Wi-Fi AC antennas for connecting wirelessly to either your mobile device or router but sometimes you just want a secure connection using ethernet. Luckily Start supports both our Mevo Ethernet Power adapter & 3rd party ethernet adapters you may already own.

Requirements

For your Mevo product to recognize ethernet, you must be in Hotspot Mode. In this mode your Start will have a BLUE front LED. If the front LED is red or green then your camera will not utilise the ethernet connection.

To confirm your configuration is working, you can check the in app status in your Mevo app.

Mevo Start Ethernet Power Adapter

The Mevo Power over Ethernet adapter is the only power over Ethernet adapter supported by Mevo. If you don't need the POE functionality, we've gone through and tested and confirm the following adapters work to provide the ability to run Ethernet to your Mevo Start.

Ethernet Adapter with Power Delivery (Self powered)

This is different than "POE", this style of adapter requires both a power and Ethernet cable to deliver data and power. The Mevo POE adapter only requires an Ethernet cable to deliver both data and power. See directions below to use these.

Having issues with your self powered adapter? 

For units with Power delivery you will need to follow a specific order of steps to have the Mevo detect both the power and the ethernet.

     1. Disconnect the adapter from the Mevo Start
     2. Disable"Power External Devices" - You can read more about this setting here.
     3. Have both Ethernet and power already plugged into your adapter.
     4. Plug the adapter into the Mevo Start.
     5. Confirm Ethernet and power is detected.
