The following chapter provides general setup instruction and installation tips for security cameras.
5.3 Connecting Camera Extension Cables
It is recommended to connect your cameras directly to the NVR. This is because the NVR features Power over Ethernet (PoE)
ports that are used to transmit video and audio, as well as provide power to the camera without the need for a power adapter.
You can also connect cameras to a network switch or router (see
4.8 Connecting Cameras to the Local Area Network (LAN)
for details). If your switch does not support PoE, or you are connecting cameras to a router, you will require a power adapter
for each camera (sold separately). Refer to your camera’s documentation at
for the correct power adapter to use.
Connect the camera to the included Ethernet extension cable.
Connect the other end of the Ethernet extension cable to one of the PoE ports on the rear panel of the NVR.
