The 4-port Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch makes a perfect addition to your surveillance system. It provides power and video transmission the exact same way an NVR does. It can offer you tremendous flexibility in the way you install your cameras.
How? Instead of having to run multiple camera cables back to just one device, you now have two to choose from (the NVR and the PoE switch). This means you can have the NVR in one area of your home or business, and place the switch in a completely different area, eliminating the need for lengthy cables for each camera.
NOTE: The switch is compatible with Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+, class 4) and provides power up to 30W. Total power output of the switch is 60W. You can connect up to 4 cameras rated PoE class 3 (15W) or up to 2 cameras rated PoE+ class 4 (30W).
Variety of installation options are available.

Fantastic little device. We have an outbuilding/ workshop approx 200 feet away from our home. We plugged the switch into the wireless network extender we out there and instantly had the ability to extend our video surveillance well beyond the range stated by Lorex. Highly recommend this device!
Worked great for a few months and now only three of the four camera's work. I email customer service about the problem and about TWO weeks later i got a response to call them. i then told them that the POE switch is bad and explained the problem, I'm still waiting to hear back, probably going to be another TWO weeks. Lorex works on turtle time.... once they have your money...They no longer care!!!!

This 4 channel PoE switch was easy to install with simple instructions. I was able to get two IP cameras running remotely over my wired network in about an hour. I would recommend this product to anyone that has ethernet already installed and would like to minimize the wire runs back to your NVR.
