Can someone please confirm,

If I make up the cable in the attached image, can I log into the UI on IP cameras without hooking them up through a network (router)? In other words, can I connect the camera via a crossover cable directly to a computer?

Here is a good article here https://www.securitycameraking.com/securityinfo/how-to-access-your-dvrnvr-without-a-router-and-access-ip-cameras-directly-with-an-nvr-with-a-built-in-poe-switch/

Also, keep in mind that you only need to power the camera with 12VDC and set your computers NIC to be on that same network and then scan using the search tool.

Missed that article… thank you for pointing me to it.

Looks like the image I posted is correct. In my case I need to set up wireless IP camera’s, so I  know I need to power them with their included power supplies. Will be a big help if I can set them up off site before I hang them, and do so by just hooking up to them directly to a computer and using their onboard UI.

Thanks Jose!

I do this all of the time when repairing equipment as its faster and keeps the equipment out of the network. Cool
