I purchased a new home and I ran Cat5E cable throughout the home.I ran 4 Cat5E(Future POE security cameras) and Cat5E to (Four bedrooms). I also want to run Cat6 to main level ( Possibly to 6 locations). The reason why Cat6 is I got a great deal online.
I will be installing the proper keystones in the rooms, that's not my issue.

My issue is patch panel. I know that I need one for my connections from the rooms, but what about the POE cameras?
Can it plug into a regular patch panel?
Does it need to be connected on POE switch?
Can you purchase a patch panel with Poe?

I'm confused.

I'm not sure what type on equipment that I will need.

Any suggestions

You can get a POE patch panel but from what I understand they are expensive. Not really worth it. Just get a POE switch and be done with it. And yes, you can plug in the camera's to a regular patch panel.
