The sixteen-port PoE switch makes a perfect addition to your surveillance system. It provides power and video transmission the exact same way an NVR does. However, it can offer you tremendous flexibility in the way you install your cameras. How? Instead of having to run multiple camera cables back to just one device, you now have two to choose from (the NVR and the PoE switch). That means you can have the NVR in one corner of your home/business and place the switch in a completely different area, thus eliminating the need for lengthy cables for all the cameras.
Powerful 30W PoE+ switch
Some IP cameras (such as Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras) need additional power to operate. If you need to extend the reach of a PTZ camera in your system you will need a PoE+ switch such as this. Rather than the 15-watts of power provided by standard PoE switches, this PoE+ switch will provide 30-watts of power - enough to control the PTZ functions of your cameras.
Expand camera distance over 300ft
This PoE switch (with the help of your router) can help simplify and extend the wiring for your installation. The maximum distance you can install an IP camera from the NVR is 300ft /92m. Using your PoE+ switch, you can expand that distance significantly. Simply connect the PoE switch to your router and NVR using two seperate ethernet cables (up to 300ft / 92m in length), then connect the IP cameras to the PoE switch. This can add up to a further 300ft in length. Multiple PoE switchs can add even more distance. The ACCDPS261B 16-channel PoE switch can also increase the number of security cameras in your system. For example, if your NVR has 32 channels, but only 16 PoE ports, this 16-channel PoE switch will allow you to incorporate an additional sixteen cameras.
