How to add audio to outside POE camera?

Postby Rickdean22 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 3:57 pm

Hello. I have a 4mp Amcrest POE camera on top my barbershop facing the train tracks and depot. How can I add a microphone/audio to the camera? Only want to hear the traffic and trains going by. Thanks, Rick

You could try this with your camera if it supports external audio input, or just attach it to a speaker in your barber shop.

Thanks. However the camera (IP4M-1026) is POE connection which is RJ45 and does not have a analog pigtail for audio. I plan to live stream the Trains and traffic on youtube. Audio would be nice. Sure would be nice if Amcrest would make an weatherproof version of the UltraHD. I'll keep on a searching for a solution.

Anyone know the Pin configuration on the RJ45 POE cable? Or where I could find it on this site? Perhaps I could hack in audio from an unused pit and harness some voltage. Comments appreciated.

For that my suggestion is that you will do one thing just get some review and from there you will do one thing just collect more tricks and apply it. Actually, I use Mac and I have software by which I handled it easily. I hope that tricks will help you easily.
