Thought I'd share some pictures of my setup so far. I have a ways to go but for now a humble little install. I have a home office so I decided to put the equipment in the closet on the closet shelf. I installed two outlets and ran the wire to the breaker box instead of splicing into existing wire nearby. As you can see, one outlet is dedicated to a powerline ethernet adapter. I went with the TP-Link AV2000 2 Port Gigabit kit which I'm showing a ~800 Mbps connection to the companion module plugged in next to the router. I went with this approach because it'd be extremely difficult (would have to tear open into the wall severely) to run an ethernet line down the wall where the modem and router are because of how the house is designed. There's a 1.5" diameter PCV pipe that runs up for 4 feet from the closet ceiling up to the walkable area of the scissor trusses (I have valved ceilings throughout the house) in the attic. The foam plug stops convection or heat/cool loss to/from the attic. I only have 4 cameras so far. More to come especially when I figure out what to do about the front door (and doorbell). NVR is Blue Iris running under Windows 10 Pro o/s on Dell Optiplex 7040 with i7-6700, 12GB memory, 120GB m.2 SSD, 6TB WD purple drive and 2 ethernet controllers (POE switch & home network). POE switch is unmanaged 10 port gigibit (2 up, 8 down).
