Bump, anyone?How do you know Lorex is a rebranding of Dahua?
I think I'm still not understanding the purpose of the PoE switch. Don't I just connect an ethernet cable from each port on the NVR, to each camera?
How does the camera know whether it's being connected to an 8 port or 16 port NVR? Isn't it only the NVR that has to know?
Is there a good connection diagram I can look at?
Why are you returning your Lorex?
Also, just a general question about cameras with variable zoom. Can the zoom be remotely controlled, such as through a PC? I don't have to physically go to the camera and hit a zoom button, right?
EDIT: The Dahua sales rep said some of the NVRs have PoE switches on them, and some don't.
