Honeywell IPCAM-PTPS - IPCAM-PT Power Supply 5VDC, 2A Reviews
Submitted on 01/17/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell IPCAM-PTPS is a 5VDC 2A power supply that is used with the Honeywell IPCAM-PT Camera. The Honeywell IPCAM-PT is a legacy pan-tilt camera that is used with the Total Connect 2.0 platform. The camera comes with a Honeywell IPCAM-PTPS included, but if you ever need a replacement power supply, then this is the one to get. The power supply is very easy to use, as it simply connects to the back of the camera using a male DC connector. The other end plugs into any standard wall outlet. However, this power supply has since been discontinued, so you won't be able to buy a new model from Alarm Grid. Still, this is a very useful power supply if you have a Honeywell IPCAM-PT, so we give this product a 5-Star rating.
The biggest benefit to the Honeywell IPCAM-PTPS is that it is very easy to use. It just plugs into the back of the camera, and the other end goes into a wall outlet. We have found that the power supply keeps a Honeywell IPCAM-PT running reliably, so we really can't complain about its performance. We also like the fact that the camera itself has LED lights to indicate that power is being applied.
There are not many downsides to the Honeywell IPCAM-PTPS. It is an extremely limited device, considering that it can only power a Honeywell IPCAM-PT. It cannot be used with any of the other legacy Honeywell IP Cameras. The reason why the Honeywell IPCAM-PT uses a different power supply is because of its pan-tilt function that needs additional power than what is required for the other cameras. The fact that the IPCAM-PT uses its own unique power supply can make things frustrating if you were expecting the camera to use the same power supply as the other legacy Honeywell IP Cameras. Also, the cord attached to this power supply is of fixed length, so you may need an extension cord if you are having trouble reaching the wall outlet. Still, these are very minor downsides, and they do not stop us from giving this product 5 Stars.
Good: Easy to Connect, Reliable Performance, Camera has LED Power Light
Bad: For IPCAM-PT Only, Cannot Work w/ Other Legacy IP Cameras, Fixed Length Cord
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
