Our take on the ClearView POE-SW881

This switch allows you to add up to eight additional wired cameras to your ClearView Phoenix network video recorder. Power-over-Ethernet technology is excellent for long cable runs, like the type you'll encounter when installing multiple cameras throughout a large space. Each cable can provide both power and signal, so you can run just a single wire to each camera.

Product Highlights:

  • allows you to add up to 8 additional cameras to a ClearView network video recorder
  • supplies power-over-Ethernet to each camera via a wired connection
  • 1 power input port and 8 individual output ports
  • warranty: 7 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Overview: The ClearView PoE-SW881 is an 8-port PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch that supplements power to IP cameras when cable runs are long, and allows you to add additional IP cameras to Phoenix-series NVRs. The switch also has a 1 Gigabit uplink port that gives you access to up to 1000 Mbps bandwidth. The IEEE 802.3af PoE switch has one RJ-45 uplink port and eight RJ-45 10M/100M Base-T compatible LAN/PoE ports on the rear panel. The PoE-SW881 is compatible with the ClearView Phoenix Network Video Recorder (NVR).

Note: The switch is manufactured for ClearView by LT Security.

DIP Switches: There are eight DIP switches on the front panel which allows you to manually set each PoE port for On/Off control.

Auto Detection: The PoE-SW881 can automatically detect and supply power to IEEE 802.3at/af-compliant devices. The switch supports Auto-MDI/MDI-X Ethernet port connections with twisted pair cabling and Auto-Negotiation configuration, eliminating the need for toggle switches or crossover cables.

LED Indicators: Each of the PoE ports features two corresponding front panel LEDs. The LAN row of LEDs indicates the port is connected (solid green), data activity at 10M (slow flashing), or data activity at 100M (rapid flashing). The PoE row indicates whether the port is enabled for Power over Ethernet (solid green), or whether it is disabled (LED off). If LED is off, the port becomes a regular LAN port. The GE LED indicates connected (solid), and whether it is receiving data activity (slow or rapid flashing).

Power: The PoE-SW881's maximum power output is 30 watts per port, with a maximum power of 115 watts.

Buffer Memory: To prevent accidental loss of data, the switch is equipped with a 512kb buffer memory.

Mounting Options: The PoE-SW881 can be installed on a tabletop/desktop with the supplied 4 self-adhesive rubber feet. If desired, you can wall-mount the switch using the two bi-directional keyhole slots on the bottom panel.
