Not a recommendation, and somewhat off-topic, but I purchased a
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) outdoor camera from Jaycar a year or
so ago with the intent of making it work with Linux (comes with
a Windows app...).

Made some progress, running it inside VirtualBox and sniffing
the traffic to/from the camera, but a ways to go yet.

If anyone knows of any projects that may have gotten this working,
I would be keen to learn about it.
