Google tells me PoE is power over Ethernet. Meaning you only need to run a single wire from the receiver to the camera.

There may be more benefits, but that's all I got for now.

no HDD, 720p analog cameras, no PoE, max 1080p... but for $80, if that's your budget, still way better than no surveillance.

The 60' BNC cables come with power (siamese cable) so it would be a single wire run anyway. The BNC coax siamese cables also have power as well and can be done on a single pull. Both are not as easy to pull as cat5e though.

As far as PoE goes, for years you can buy BNC Baluns and Power Baluns

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XX7QH3L?psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/10Pair-Con...wer+baluns

to be used with Cat5e so having no PoE is not really a big deal.

Best way to do it is use 1 pair (typically the blue ones), 1 wire each to +/- of the video baluns. The other 3 pairs, 3 solid to + power and 3 stripes to - power. This is extremely important because at night when the infrared turns on for nightvision, it will require a lot of power. Using only 2 pairs for power can/will result in striped images, flickers, and blackout.

If you are running more than 4 cameras, I always suggest using a proper CCTV Power supply such as this one:

https://www.amazon.com/Evertech-C...wer+supply

The little 12v, 5A bricks with 6 or 8 way splitter seems convenient but they will fry over time (2-5 years).

Also keep in mind there is a maximum run length/limitation of using cat5e vs traditional coax.

-=-=-=-=-=-

As far as this particular deal goes. You get what you pay for. They work, but don't expect to see much in terms of zoomed in detail. Those little 720p's are a joke compared to what's currently on the market. 1080p camera's are relatively inexpensive but make sure you do your research as there are plenty that claim 1080p or 1080p lite are really a sham. Also don't expect to capture any license plates at night with those cams unless the object is maybe within 5 feet lol.

Hope this helps.... oh and one more thing, unless you have the budget of a casino, the "HD" in CCTV world is a gimmick, it is all digital to analog converted. The picture will be sharper than traditional analog but nothing near your HDMI/BluRay/ qualities.

Care to give me a quick explanation of PoE? Look for my first set of cameras for a new home and this seemed like a good deal?

They are analog cameras, they wouldn't even use Ethernet. Your comment makes no sense.

Yeah, that's the main benefit. Having installed a dozen of these, it's a pretty major benefit.

The box supports up to two IP cameras via software, but the hardware is designed to be used with the analog (not PoE capable since they don't even use Ethernet) cameras that come with it...

The IP cameras you buy separate could support PoE. The unit listed has nothing to do with PoE so I'm not sure why PoE is relevant to this product.

It's a relevant downside to the camera. The specs on their site list optional NVR support, but near as I can tell, it's with a bunch of gotchas, and won't work in practice. Likewise, while it might support pure digital cameras in theory, in practice, you aren't going to want to use them without PoE. I don't see why you're getting so bent out of shape about this. As I said, if this is all you have the budget for, it's worth it, but if you can afford a better system, there are countless reasons not to bother with this one.
