If you buy a swann 16 channel dvr system can you power the 16 cameras with a Poe hub and then run a single cat6 cable to the swann dvr?

asking for a friend.

With a DVR no as those are analog systems. If it is an IP system and NVR, then it should be possible, but you may need to manually enter the cameras into the NVR. You will also connect it to the WAN/LAN port and not one of the camera ports.

It’s a nvr. I wonder how one would do in a attic and can you replace the HDD with a SSD

I’m not sure where the software to run the system is stored might be a issue if you changed the storage.

FYI - Swann had 2 OEMs recently for their equipment.

One was Hikvision OEM - which is better known here .. so easier to find info on Hikvision OEM products and how to get them to work well with your setup
