That is an excellent question. You actually hit upon the answer in your details of your question.

The reason the it is Red, (actually an amber is light red) is because it is on the Power adapter and not on PoE.

I am not sure why that was light description was left off of the Status Light Table in the Quick Start Guide.

If you have any further questions that we can answer, please let us know.

Have a great day!
