My (dahua) IP cam was working fine. POE via 4 port POE switch to the router.

Then I unplugged it from the switch and plugged it into a NVR for a while.

Then I unplugged it from there and plugged it back into the switch.

And found it was gone.

Can't find it in contacam or Blue Iris or from a web browser.

That IP no longer exists, it seems.

The router perhaps can see it - there is an ethernet device listed as connected but it has no further information for me - no IP of course.

But i think that's probably it.

I am surprised. I thought the IP was fixed in these cameras once you've set them up. Apparently not.

What can I do to sort this out?

use an app to find all the attached devices geovison has one for their products and many other mfgs do too.
they should find any compatible device that is attached to the local network. when you find your camera make sure that the IP address is set to fixed or static not DHCP.
