Can I connect PoE and the included Power Supply at the same time?

We see this question often in regards to our hardware such as the NewTek Connect Spark and Newtek PTZ1 camera. 

The short answer is you should not connect power to both.  Many assume that connecting both power sources offers a redundant power solution, however the circuit and technology designs for PoE on our devices do not have redundancy as part of the scope.
