Connect one end of the cable into a PoE capable port of your network switch, and connect the other end into the network port of the Josh Core.
Make sure the cable clicks into position at both ends.
When Josh Core receives power via the network cable, you will see the LEDs light up white. A few seconds later they will change to blue, signifying that Josh Core is ready for set up.
If the unit doesn’t power on, make sure the network cable is connected to a PoE port on your network switch, and that the network switch is powered on.
