I apologize if this has already been answered somewhere else. If it has, can someone direct me to the post?
I have about 8 GE Z-Wave Smart Motion Sensors which I currently power with rechargeable batteries. I would like to run power to each of these units form a central DC power board. These units state they require a minimum of 5v/500mA each. I am also considering powering a few other devices like my Arlo Pro2 cameras which require 9v/1.1A so the batteries can stay charged in the camera. (which I like in case of power outages).
My question is has anyone here done anything like this and what hardware did they use to accomplish the job?
I’m picturing a central DC board of sorts with leads running out to each of the smart devices around the home. Perhaps even a battery backed up DC board which would allow me to remove the batteries from the Arlos. I believe they will run on [email protected] if not trying to change the battery in the unit. Ultimately I would like to reduce the number of devices running on batteries; all the devices have Micro-USB sockets.
