Usually, the SANNCE PoE NVR systems include several POE IP cameras in the same kit so cameras can be plugged into NVR's PoE directly and will work automatically.
But in some cases, we may need to add IP cameras from other brands to the SANNCE PoE NVR.
In this case, the camera should meet the 3 requirements below:
1. The IP camera must support the ONVIF protocol.
2. The IP camera's resolution is equal to or lower than the recording resolution of NVR. For example, if the NVR is 720P but the IP camera is 1080P resolution, then the NVR will not be able to work with this IP camera.
3. The camera should be connected to the same local network (or same router) as the NVR. The camera can be connected to router by cable, or by Wi-Fi. Therefore, a wireless camera is also OK.
- Please connect the IP camera to the router (by ethernet cable or WiFi) and connect the camera to a separate power adapter.
- Connect the SANNCE NVR to the same router by network cable.
- Make sure the camera's ONVIF function is enabled and the ONVIF username/password and ONVIF port number are known. (If you were not sure about this information, please contact the camera's provider to get them.)
- Login the NVR through a connected monitor/TV, right-click the USB mouse to open a menu bar, click IP channel.
- On this screen IP channel, click Search to find the ONVIF camera in the same local network. check the box of the camera that needs to be added then click Add.
- Generally, the camera will be added automatically and shown on the NVR channels list below. When you see the Connection Status says Connected, then the camera is added successfully and will show it live view at the background in few seconds.
- In case the camera cannot be added automatically, select the added camera from the channel list below, click Edit devices to modify the channel parameters manually (so the channel parameters can reflect the camera's actual parameters).
- Device Type: IPC
- Device address: Same as the IP address of camera detected.
- Protocol: should be ONVIF
- Port: the camera's ONVIF port number
- User Name: the camera's ONVIF username
- Password: the camera's ONVIF password
Then click OK and the camera should work now.
