each still gets their own unique IP address.
Yes. It acts no different than any other switch (other than it supplies power too).Thanks, thus instead of connecting to the back of the NVR, this POE switch gets connected to the back of the main router, and NVR picks it up on the network (when initiating a device search), right?

To clarify, it does not plug into the back of the "main router", this unit must be powered by POE or preferably poe+ depending on the power you draw. This is only for use when you dont have local power to power a proper poe switch.Yes. It acts no different than any other switch (other than it supplies power too).
Well, the POE switch is in the basement that feeds the line I have running out there now, but it goes through the attic in the garage to the outside corner of the garage..no power outlets up in the attic.Do you not have power in your garage? if so, use a regular poe switch.
this is an extender, not a supply.. its meant to turn a single PoE+ ethernet run into 4 PoE outputs.. I prefer to have everything running off my redundant UPS setup and dont want to put a battery in garage (they dont last long in cold)
if you can run 4 independant cables there then do it, the one you link is just an injector and would not be doing anything network wise, you still need a switch.
Never thought of it this way but makes sense.NVR's dont run DHCP, they run ARP to find ONVIF cameras and assign em to the same network config they listning on.. A NVR w/a built in PoE switch is essentially a single GigE uplink hardwired into a simple switch with its own standalone processor.
