Frequently Asked Questions for PoE Auto Recovery
Q1: What is PoE Auto Recovery?
With PoE Auto-Recovery enabled, the switch will constantly detect the data transmission with PoE powered devices (PD). When the switch finds that a PD stops sending data packets to the switch for a long period, the switch will reboot it automatically.
Q2: Why do I need PoE Auto Recovery?
With the PoE Auto Recovery feature, the switch helps you monitor your PDs to ensure that they are functioning correctly without the intervention of a service technician.
Q3: What should I notice before using this feature?
A1: Before upgrading a connected PD, disable PoE Auto Recovery to avoid the PD’s damage.
A2: When a PD does not send data packets to the switch for a long period in certain scenarios (e.g. an IPC in sleep mode), disable PoE Auto Recovery to avoid the PD repeatedly rebooting.
