Where to install the 360° Reolink Fisheye? Here are recommended Positions
I am going to install a second RLC-520 on the far side of the house. Can I use two splitters as shown in the attachment? I am trying to prevent running a second cable. Thank you.
If you find a splitter that works let me know. I had some laying around and tried it. Does not work.
I have had good luck with splitters for other devices. Just trying to find out before I attempt. I don't know how many wire pairs are used with cameras verses a regular network device which is usually only two pair.James
The RLC-520 should be powered by the Ethernet cable. Please make sure the devices between the NVR and the cameras can work with PoE.
Ok so I have not tried to use the splitters yet being cautious not to cause any harm to the devices. I did find this article that would explain why splitters with Reolink Cameras will not work.https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011364633-Arrange-wire-order-for-RJ45-connectorTypical network connections require only 4 of the pins to be used. Reolink Cameras need 6 pins? Can this article be confirmed to be correct according to Reolink tech support? Thank you. James
Yes, the article you mentioned is correct. It should be 8 pins.
