    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    Absolutely none. It will require 3 separate NVRs to do the job if networking the POE ports does not work. The network map is in this thread Networked cameras back to LNR 6108 NVR

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    Thanks for the reply. What I am proposing with discreet VLANs for each camera would mean each POE port would only see one camera. The other solutions with splitters on the POE ports are a non-starter as others have found. I already stream camera video data over discreet VLANs on my customer...

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    You do realize that is exactly the point of this and every other web forum and why I am here, right? :) I have done the research. From a networking perspective, the camera data is no different than any other streaming data. The potential issue I foresee is weather or not the NVR POE ports are...

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    Technically, then their should be an answer confirming the negative just like there could be answers confirming the positive. A lack of an answer is not confirmation that it does not work.

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    I've been all over this and other forums for months looking for someone doing specifically what I am trying to do. My first post here was back in May Networked cameras back to LNR 6108 NVR I've read the cliff notes and all the threads contained therein but no one seems to be doing what I am...

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    I tried searching but found nothing this specific. Most people with complex networks or distances are not running an NVR with a built in POE switch. I know I can make one camera work over the LAN port. The Lorex only supports one networked camera plugged into the LAN port in place of one of...

    Extending POE network from Lorex LNR6100

    Has anyone tried to extend the distance from a Lorex NVR to the cameras beyond 100m? I am thinking about putting one or more cameras over 300m from the NVR. I don't see why I could not run it through an IP network on its own VLAN but will the NVR autosense that it is not directly connected to...

    Need Advise On Powering 2 Cameras

    If you cannot run another cable, cutting it and putting the US-8-60 in the garage is what I would do. I would then use that as an excuse to get a bigger switch for inside the house!

    Networked cameras back to LNR 6108 NVR

    It looks like my Lorex LNR 6108 can only support one networked camera and 8 cameras via direct connection. This limits me to the maximum Ethernet spec of 100m for the connected cameras. Does anyone know if I can insert a network device in between the camera and one of the POE ports on the NVR...

    Costco LNR 6108 -Did I make a mistake?

    So, talked to Costco. They want the whole thing back. I've already run wires and mounted cameras, two of them 20' up! Not going to rip it all out to get one camera fixed. Thought about buying a complete new system and return it with the bad one but they are out of stock and the other store...

    Costco LNR 6108 -Did I make a mistake?

    Quick update. The noise seems to be mostly vibration. I can apply pressure to the case or try to twist it and the sound is much improved. Still a little louder but not as annoying. Might be a crap fan inside. Ran some speed tests on the cable and port that was used for the NVR and they...

    Costco LNR 6108 -Did I make a mistake?

    I thought it was interesting as well. Night and day difference in sound level and frequency is much higher. Not sure if it is only a speed difference. I didn't start bench testing the cameras until I had this problem. :embarrassed: It was tested with a known good (short) patch cable...

    Thanks! I started to build my own NVR using the wiki and CN. Tons of useful information there. I was just about to buy the parts needed when I saw the Lorex LNR6108 on sale for $699 at Costco. I could not pass that deal up so I bought 2! However, I was less than excited when the second...

    Costco LNR 6108 -Did I make a mistake?

    I took advantage of the $699 sale at Costco for the Lorex LNR6108 by getting two of them. After a flawless installation of the first, the second one had some issues. First, there seems to be a bad camera. It is recognized by the system but there is no video. Sadly, I already painted and...
