Passing a AI Camera Through a Non AI NVR

Post by Revo2Maxx »

Ok so I learned something today.. I had someone ask about adding camera from a NVR to another NVR like I have said I can do with my DVR to my NVR.. So today when I made a Video I found that when I connect my 1046EW-AI camera to my 4108E NVR. That when I connect that NVR to my 4216E-AI NVR not only was I able to do that, I learned that the Rules also came though the 4108E while it was connected to the NVR's POE Port 1... Video can be seen here https://youtu.be/qosgCuzKX6U

Why this might be important for some people.. Well when you have a POE NVR there might be a Distance that it can work at while use POE and at times a Network connection can pass in an area that the POE can't and having a Camera lets say just outside the Distance reach of the AI NVR, and with in the Reach of a POE NVR it will not Disable the ability to use the Cameras AI function.. To me thought that was cool

Don't know what's your Thoughts on the matter...

Ok after a Couple of weeks running my AI cameras though my 4108E on the Poe port of the NVR I will admit that the AI rules come though to my 4216E-AI NVR, however one thing I found within this time is that you don't have access to the rules.. What that means is if you want to access say the one camera I have 3 line crossing rules setup on when you pass them though the non AI nvr you can no longer access that Setup for the rules like I have one setup to PTZ camera 15, another one to PTZ camera 11 and another rule to PTZ camera 8 while they are behind the NVR those rules no longer work..

However as I have said before with my AI DVR it will pass the rules of the DVR to the NVR for the cameras you bring though..

Just thought I would update on what I found over the last couple of weeks..
