What are the impacts on a home network by adding IP cameras and an NVR? Will it slow the performance of other devices on the network? If so how can it be prevented?

Thanks

You can upgrade your service with your ISP and increase your bandwidth or put the IP camera system on a different network using a gigabit switch. If you configure the IP cameras correctly then you will have less bandwith consumption.

Is there a way to set up the camera system on its own network separate from my current network and still use my existing router to access remotely.

I prefer the NVR have it’s own POE switch built in. What this does in essence is create it’s own parallel network, keeping the cameras on their own separate subnet within the NVR. The cameras are isolated to the NVR. The NVR becomes the one device that communicates with the cameras for recording and remote viewing, and yet it still gets plugged into your router for remote access. Your bandwidth will only take a hit when you open cameras remotely to view on the NVR, which of course is dealt with by viewing lower resolution sub streams. There are lots of people who prefer not to have POE built into the NVR for various reasons, opting to create virtual servers. As much as I see the merit in that, the ease and simplification of the POE NVR is just too good, for me personally. It’s the hub of the camera traffic. And I can sit right at the monitor on the NVR and open full resolution views with no worries at all about bandwidth limitations.

Can you show a diagram of this with two switches?

Does the NVR-EL-32 have the POE built in?

The full sized 32 channel el NVR doesn’t have any POE ports but the NVR-ELC-32-POE16 has 16 channels of POE built in. If you need that many POE ports, I would install two of the 16 channel NVR-ELCE-16-POE16-DH NVRs which have 16channels of POE.
