Motion sensor WIFI?

Can the wall and ceiling motion sensors connect via WIFI to an mPort rather than being cabled to the mPort?

They have to be cabled to the mport. How ever the Mport it's self can connect to a wireless AP. It still requires 1 cat5 cable from the poe injector.

Ok in total 2 cables, one from sensor to mport and one from mport to POE switch or POE injector and then wall socket?

Yes
If you connect it to wifi you need to fist plug it to a switch or router and login with a browser.
If you use a poe switch then you don't need to configure the wifi.
I just went the switch route.
1 Tough switch with a line in from the lan/ management port is hooked to a server for zoneminder and 4 ports powering mports and a pico station.
