Check the camera configuration

Before connecting the CCTV camera with your NVR, you need to check the camera configuration.

These enable the user to remotely view the video footage and live feed from anywhere.

Connect it with the POE Switch

A POE switch’s full form is Power Over Ethernet. It supplies power and internet at the same time. The POE switch with 6KV surge protection prevents high-voltage power disruption, enabling continuous power to keep IP cameras running properly without interruption. Connect the POE switch to the router, and make sure it is connected to the internet. Connect the NVR to one of the ports on the switch or router. Make sure the lights on the ports you just connected are lit.

Configure NVR with the network

Once you connect the POE switch to the camera, connect the NVR to network or router. The NVR should be connected to the same network where the camera and POE are connected. You can connect NVR to your home network using the Prama Online app. The AI-integrated NVR enables the user to draw a virtual intrusion box of the location; this helps to filter and identify the event that took place at that particular spot.
