slide 1: What Most Users Do Not Understand About PTZ Camera and PoE Switches The high-end CCTV cameras available nowadays come with a lot of advanced features. However understanding the technicalities associated with them might not be easy for all to understand. You might blame the technical jargon linked to them for the purpose. Its time you get to understand then in laymens terms one at a time. What about beginning with the PoE Switches About PoE The power over Ethernet PoE Switches come with a number of Ethernet ports. They are designed to give network and power communication to the IP camera. This will help the PoE switch to facilitate the reach of the NVR system. The switch would expand the network that a router creates. Hence make sure that you connect the switch to the direct router preferably on the network of your NVR. However all PoE might or might not be compatible with all NVRs. Therefore do your research well before buying. The router would assign the addresses to your IP cameras. This ensures that the NVR detects the cameras connected to the LAN. PTZ and 8 Port Switches If you have a high power IP device like Laser PTZ Camera then you might want to use advanced PoE. They give better power to any connected device to that of a standard PoE. It is more than essential to research thoroughly to see which integrated PoE would be compatible with your NVR. Advanced PoE ports can give us as much as 30 W of power. But standard PoEs cannot provide more than 15 W. You might have found that some PTZ cameras now come with 8 Port PoE Switch. These contain 8 ports that the PoE switch supports. You can use them in your camera both for data transmission and power. They usually come with an extra port. It usually supports data transmission only. The Best Features to Find When you are investing in a new age CCTV look for products that have the essential characteristics. Look for something that has more than 130 feet night vision at least 2 TB hard drive multiple weatherproof IP cameras optical zoom and many more.
