A follow-up to my question.
At this point it appears that I did not crimp the connectors correctly. After the connectors were crimped properly, the cameras were detected and (still under testing) did not drop. However there is something weird here. I'm seeing a difference of upto one (1) second between the timestamp of the connected cameras.
The System Time on the NVR was setup when it was first powered on - so I imagine the time should be identical. At present the system is not connected to the internet though eventually it will be.
- Channel #1 shows a time of 071622,
- Channel #2 shows a time of 071621.
- Channel #3 shows a time of 071623
Should all channels on a PoE switch have the same timestamp? Could latency be the cause seeing as atleast device has a cable run of nearly 150 ft?
