Hi, I think this is in the right location for the discussion.

I have a Swann NVR (7400) with 8 IP (POE) Ports and I want to mount cameras away from the NVR and have them powered by POE.

So, I am thinking that I could use a POE splitter to remove the POE coming from the NVR port #1 and cable into a PowerLine Adapter. On the camera end, use a standard power supply and POE injector to power the camera over POE (along with the data via the powerline adapter).

This seems simple enough and many articles on the internet state this should be OK to do.

However, I would like to use powerline adapters for each of the cameras (up to 8 off) without the NVR getting confused as to which camera is on which port or without the bandwidth of each camera being compromised. Can I use the above configuration for each camera (yes, a powerline adaptor pair for each camera) without the camera1 powerline adaptors seeing / interfering with any of the other camera powerline adapters? Any idea on which powerline adapters to use and if any, how they can be configured.

I would like to understand this before going out and purchasing adaptors that may or may not meet the requirement.

Thanks

That looks like such a bad idea... If you are not going to use POE at all on the NVR, use a NVR without POE ports. Configure the IPs on the cameras manually, add them on the NVR, etc.

OK, Thanks for the quick reply.

The NVR came as part of a kit and there was no choice not to use this NVR. I agree, not the best use of POE, but that is not really the question.

I had thought about manually configuring the IP and using my network router / switch, but this meant that all cameras were logging to the NVR over the single network port that is normally used for streaming to mobile devices. Something I didn't want to do. Also it means network cabling around the property, something I would like to avoid.

Cheers
