You can see more multi-functioned IP cameras , as a professional CCTV engineer, I strongly advise you to visit, you will find and learn more.
REMARKS, the website can only visit beyond the mainland.

I use a Foscam FI8918W to keep an eye on the pets that stay inside.

It works very well wired, and equally as well on wireless. Though I have not done so myself, I have heard of people using PoE splitters to power them without the wallwart. The camera runs on 5V @ 2A or so.

The IE interface is pretty rudimentary, but gets the job done.

I use the paid app "Foscam Surveillance Pro" on my iPhone, but the free app "CamViewer" is a good alternative.

To access the device outside of your LAN requires the proper ports be forwarded in your router, but it's simple to do.

Yes PoE but not traditional IEEE 802.3at-2009. Instead it is a set of splitters with the correct size plugs. The wall wart is still used, but not near the camera. See THIS link for an example.
