Duo 2 Tips: Recommended Installation Scenarios & Settings
I have an RLK8-800B4 nvr and 4 camera pack and have setup 3 of the camera with a direct ethernet cable connection to the NVR. The 4th camera I would like to setup in the summerhouse at the end of the garden which is further away that the supplied ethernet cables. However I already have a router in the summerhouse, bridged to the one the nvr is plugged into, connected via cat6 cable. I attach a picture of the proposed setup.So my question is can I somehow plug the B800 camera into the summerhouse router (once I upgrade it to one that supports POE) or do I have to run another cable just for the camera all the way back to the nvr? Alternatively is there an alternative camera that would support this setup, as I eventually want 2 remote camera so will be buying another one anyway.thanksSteveb800setup.jpg
Hi Steve, could you please report this issue to the support team: firstname.lastname@example.org? Or send us a request in link here https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/requests/new. Our support team will help you check if the setup is feasible. Thank you!
I think so, where you have your bridge router, I have my TP-Link 8 Port Gigabit PoE Switch 8 PoE+, and 3 cams are coming from the switch with no issues while I have 6 cams coming from the NVR.
