I have 3 Arlo Q Plus connected to the same PoE switch rated for 55W. Two of the cameras work fine, but when I connect the third I have issues. How many of these cameras can I run on the 55w PoE switch?

I can't answer the PoE power question but have you removed one that's working to verify that the 3rd one actually works? Maybe it's not a power issue.

I have removed the third camera and tested it with a different PoE switch and it works fine. This issue only occurs when I use the current switch.

well the cams prob use not more than 1.2a at peak while running... but at least 1/2a while running...

 

since many POE are at 48v dc, and you only have 55watts, you may be at the maximum with 2

 

( 1.2a would place you at 57W.... so 2 cams at .6a each would max it out )
