How do you determine if POE (power over ethernet) or whatever this is (bnc and power cable like the add on it lists?)

NVR = POE, DVR is BNC.

If I understand correctly, with POE you only have to run one wire per camera because it gets power from the ethernet as well as the network connection.
Otherwise, you have to power each camera as well.

From my understanding POE allows for one cable and less components to fail while BNC will give you more range but you need power available at the camera location.

Hi,

There's a LOT more to IP PoE ( and NVRs and VMS ) comparisons with coax / bnc / analog cameras ( and the DVR )

Please see the notes in last years master BF cyberweek deal list

Hi bocondo

That took me a lot of time last year to create and keep updated. Not certain if I will have enough time next week to repeat it.

FYI: I agree POE is a better solution however most BNC cables now also supply power, my Zmodo setup does.
Be aware this system makes no mention of any camera cables supplied with the system. Can anyone confirm?
If not it would be additional purchase $$.

Hi ShadoMakr

Typically most DVR / NVR kits include some sort of cables. I would expect the Swann kits to include cables.

The quality varies dramatically from absolute garbage to quality cables. ( zmodo typically includes very poor cables in their kits - often not meeting specs, which can be problematic when it comes time to upgrade your kit ) As running the cables are typically the most time consuming aspect of setting up a wired system I would recommend using only good quality cables - even if you have to buy your own. Avoid CCA and use cables which have solid copper wires which are thick enough as well as use cable which has well rated sheathing. ( example "in wall rated", "plenum rated" if in a drop ceiling in an office building,.. )

Hi mat, couldn't agree more. I actually replaces the cables that came with mine.
Looking to upgrade hence what alerted me to this post.
While I didn't read it word for word I found nothing on the Best Buy site that mentioned cables, even the specs that lists what comes in the box makes no mention of it. Lastly, it has a link to cables under the section of what most people bought with the system. Thought I would mention for those who are interested in this, they may want to validate
Personally I'm going to pass and keep looking for a decent deal on a POE/NVR system.
Appreciate your input.
