What does it mean to be


We often describe GENISYS as being Node-Centric, as our Intellidrive is the heart of our system. We start at a PoE Switch and use one of its ports to connect to our Intellidrive. Up to 8 devices can then be connected to the Intellidrive, maximizing PoE Port efficiency.

Using only 1 PoE port and 1 Intellidrive, GENISYS can power and control up to 8 devices.
