Can i use Cat5e wiring to charge Arlo Pro or Pro 2?

Hello,

I have existing Cat5e wiring in my house. I am planning to buy arlo pro or pro2. Is it possible to use the existing cat5e wiring to charge arlo pro or pro 2?  Can you recommend a arlo model that works with cat5e wiring?

The only Arlo camera that can use cat 5 is the Q Plus... it can run on POE.

None of the others will do etherent

If you feel handy in making your own adapter wiring between USB and Ethernet, you could pull this off. You wouldn't want to use PoE voltages so you'd have to use an appropriate power supply at one end and convert the camera end to USB. Not technically hard but the wiring would have to be thought out as well as using weatherproofing if used for outdoor cameras.
