NVR and PoE port usage

If I purchase the NVR box, do I need to use the PoE ports, or can I connect to the cameras via the WAN port? My cameras are spread throughout a network and accessible to one location via routers, so I can't easily plug them all directly into the NVR box.
@john-baker_399195799257249 Hi John, you don't have to use the PoE ports on the back of the NVR. You can use a PoE switch between the cameras and the NVR. Just make sure that you connect all the PoE switches and NVR under the same network(LAN). Hope this helps.
