So I am thinking of putting together something to manage my home reticulation. I wanted to go PoE as well (if possible) to reduce the number of cables and I prefer to hardware endpoints than to use wifi.
To that end, I was thinking of the following components:
I see, I had to look up the OSPi. It looks like the OSPi is powered off the sprinkler valve power, with some left over to run a Raspberry Pi. It specifically says that there will not be enough power for a 3B+ and if you choose to use one you will need to power it externally. For this project, I’d recommend using a 3B to keep your power demands down a bit.
Here is another PoE solution that would work for you:
I’m not sure how many amps you can safely draw through a PoE setup, but I suspect that you will be pushing it with both the display and Raspberry Pi.
