I bought 2 of the 423 cameras which come with an audio input jack for an external microphone. However I don’t see any external mics sold by Reolink. Exactly what kind of mic is compatible with this camera? I have a few old, cheap computer standalone mics that came with a sound card, will one of those work?
I know this is a old thread, but I cant find a answer to how to connect one up? My 423 camera is using Poe so no other power is being used, how then do I power the mic if the camera is power by ethenet?
A POE splitter may work as it has the proper ratings with the mic. The PoE splitter takes input from a PoE switch/injector, not from a camera.
My only thought on using a splitter was how can it pull enough current in for a 12v mic when the power needs to be higher for a PTZ camera? The splitter spits the power away from the ethernet cable taking only 12v for the mic, the mic cable then outputs the power into the input of the camera, but its only 12v not 48v, 22w for the camera?
