Ethernet cables are used to simultaneously transmit network information, video, and power from the camera to an NVR.
The maximum Ethernet cable length that can be used between an NVR and a camera is 328ft (100m). If a longer Ethernet cable is required, a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch can be added between Ethernet cables to extend length. We recommend that only single connections be used. Multiple connections may result in signal depletion. The camera will require a power source within the first 300ft (100m) if using switches to extend Ethernet cable length.
