Are the cameras battery or mains powered?

Last Updated: Jun 28, 2016 03:09PM BST
As the cameras are designed for security, they require mains power to ensure reliable connectivity and to power the infrared night vision led(s). Our experience is customers don't want to replace batteries every few months, and don't want to risk their cameras running out of power at the time they need it most.

Our Outdoor HD Pro can also be powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE). To set up PoE you need to make sure that your PoE switch or injector is 802.3af compliant and has a minimum of 13W power, we also recommend using Cat 6 cabling.
