    Beginner question - POE 12V, 24V, 48V

    I am installing my first Dahua camera (N85FB7Z) after using Ubiquiti for several years. From what the sales department told me, it's a 48V system (and what few details I can scratch up online seem to confirm this). Why, then, is a 12V adapter recommended? Is it correct that this is a 48V POE...
