I own this 16 Camera Lorex System
https://www.lorextechnology.com/hd-dvr-mpx-cameras/4mp-hd-camera-home-security-system/2KMPX1616-1-p

Rather than plug in 16 separate power supplies into 16 outlets, I want to use this camera power supply.
https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/18-channel-dc12v-30a-regulated-cctv-camera-power-supply-i220356873-s288806100.html?spm=a2o4l.searchlist.list.14.58f5736ezB3itk&search=1

Question:

Each Lorex Power supply per camera is 12volts, 5Amp

Can I use the 30Amp box to power all 16 Cameras? Will it damage the Cameras? or do I need to use a smaller amp box?

Thank you!

You can use that with no problems. It is a bit like wanting to drink 1 pint of water but the bottle you have contains 6 pints of water. You just take what you need

Ok. I'll proceed and order the power supply. I will use it to power 1 old camera for a few days just to ensure it wont negatively effect the camera.


Thank you for your reply!
