This wiring guide shows you how to wire your H-Series IP camera to a PoE switch separate from an NVR. If you are wiring your camera to an NVR-integrated PoE switch, click here. If you are wiring your camera to a non-PoE switch or directly to a router, click here.
Set Up Your Switch
Power your PoE switch. Connect it to your router and your computer with Ethernet cables.
Connect your camera to the PoE 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.
