The recommended method to wire the cameras is to connect the camera to the NVR using an Ethernet cable. Both NVR and Camera are equipped with PoE (Power Over Ethernet) module and the Ethernet cable can transfer both data and power to the camera. In this case, the power plug on the camera is not used

You may also connect the camera to a local area network (LAN) by adding the IP address of the camera in the NVR and specifiy the camera credentials. In such case please connect the camera to a PoE switch that will supply power to the camera. If you are connecting the camera to a router, then a 12 V DC (0.5-1 A) power adapter is required to connect to the power plug on the camera
