Wiring an H-Series IP Security Camera to a Router or non-PoE Switch

ALWAYS BENCH TEST BEFORE INSTALLING! It is highly recommended that you temporarily wire your system in a controlled environment before you install your cameras in their permanent location. Once you have confirmed that you have the basic setup complete, then you can proceed to installation.

This wiring guide shows you how to wire your H-Series IP camera to a router or a non-PoE switch. If you are wiring your camera to a NVR-integrated PoE switch, click here. If you are wiring your camera to a separate PoE switch, click here.

Power Your Camera

If you choose to wire your H-Series camera without PoE, you will need to power it with a 12v power supply.

Connect your camera to Your Router or Switch with an Ethernet cable.

If you are installing more than one camera, please only plug in and configure one camera at a time. Do not plug in all cameras at once. Once you get one camera configured, then you can plug in the next one for configuration.
