I purchased a lorex 8 channel camera security system http://m.costco.com/Lorex-8-Channel-IP-NVR-with-2TB-HDD,-8-1080p-Cameras-with-130-Night-Vision.product.100217003.html. Everything works fine however, I would like to add additional cameras.
Can this be done using a POE switch? The POE switch comes with 5 ports and 4 additional cameras: https://www.lorextechnology.com/HD-IP-camera/1080p-HD-IP-Security-Cameras-with-PoE-Switch-4-Pack/prod1040002.p. When I look in the manual and on the site it says the device works for LNR Series camera systems. The manual is very vague on this topic. A local installer here says you can install but lorex customer support says you cannot.
Im not sure who is right in this situation. If you read online the channel size indicates the number of cameras. Mine is 8 channels which tells me 8 cameras...but if I use a POE switch can I not just add additional cameras?
