Newb question. I am looking for the best way to install security cameras in my detached garage that will work with the cameras I plan to install at the house. I have two cat 6A wires ran to the garage. One wire is for internet in the garage and it goes from a router in my house to a router in the garage. I plan to install 3 cameras in the garage and there are three ports available in the garage router. Can I hook the cameras up to the router in the garage? Or would it be best to wire the cameras to a poe switch and use the 2nd cat 6 wire back to the house where the NVR will be? Thanks for any advice!

I use both a POE+ Switch connected from my router for 3 cams, and my NVR connected to 6 cams..using a separate Ethernet line...they all show up on my TV screen with no problem because they are all on the same network. Due to the construction of my crazy house, I could not connect them all without tearing up the roof in 3 tight spots. I also opted to set up my cams using Static vs DHCP for more stability.
Yes It is better to wire the camera to a poe switch otherwise the router will be congested and we cannot use any free port to the NVR input
