Installation of 4 x Ultra HD IP System

 

 Normal Set-Up

This diagram below shows a way to set up a 4 Camera IP System in your home. This diagram demonstrates how you would run this system when your PoE Switch is in the attic. To start this set-up you need to choose a room in your home where you would like the NVR and Monitor (optional) to go. This room needs have access to your router. Your router doesn’t have to be the same room as your system but if you want to be able to view this CCTV system on your phone or building elsewhere via the internet you must have a cable connecting your router to the your NVR. The advantages of running your system this way is; less cable, less time laying cable, cables can be hidden in beams. Disadvantages are; PoE Switch is out of reach and connections are hard to reach.

 

 

Attic Set-Up

 

Another way of running this system from your attic is to run the whole system from there. This is where both the NVR and PoE switch is located in the attic. The system is set up exactly the same as if the NVR was downstairs apart from there only needs to be one cable running downstairs to connect to the router to one of your PoE Switch into a non-PoE port. The advantages of running your system this way is; less cable, less time laying cable, cables can be hidden in beams, only have to run one cable into your house. Disadvantages are; both NVR and PoE Switch is out of reach, connections are hard to reach and you have to run a long cable down for both the monitor and mouse. 

 

 

When you initially set the system up you will need a monitor to obtain the QR code so that you are able to view this system on your phone or computer if you wish, you need to make sure your system is connected to your router before trying to view online too. 

 

 

If you do want to view your system via a monitor all you have to do is connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI port of on the back of the NVR to the port on the back of the monitor. (You can also view on monitor via VGA cable). Please remember if you wish you access your setting of your NVR you will also have to run a USB mouse extension along with the HDMI cable.

 

 

 

Downstairs Set-Up

 

Another way of setting up this system is to run all of the cables from one place and have everything in one room in your room - not in your attic. To do this all you have to do to start this set-up is to choose a room in your home where you would like the NVR and Monitor (optional) to go. In this room there also will perhaps need to be access or a cable to connect the NVR to your router. Your router doesn’t have to be the same room as your system but if you want to be able to view this CCTV system on your phone or building elsewhere via the internet you must have a cable connecting your router to the your NVR. The advantages of running your system this way is; everything is in the same place, can easily check all connections. Disadvantages are; you have to run a lot of cable out for the camera, cables have to run along walls/roofs.
