    I don't know much about POE switches. I want to add a switch to my network. I only have 3 ethernet outlets in my home, and none of them are in a good location for my NVR access. I have RLK8 coupled with 6-B800s & 2-B400s with 8gb HD. My wifi is 1gb Fios on my home's ethernet setup. I want to connect my NVR cameras through an ethernet switch. I found this one on Amazon Unmanaged TP-Link TL-SG1210P, but I can't find much info on the TL-SG1210P as reviewed by various sites or customers. I even tried You-Tube. I believe it is fairly new, and reviews are scant at the least. All 8-ports are POE+ / 802.3at & 802.3af providing up to 30W per port, total PoE budget 63W.

    1. Do you think this system will suffice?
    2. Is this the right type of Switch for my RLK8/B&D800s
    3. Does 8-POE+ mean I can view all 8 cameras at the same time? or is the wattage too low (30W per port/63W total)?
    4. If the switch is adequate, should I be able to hook up more cameras directly to the back of the NVR? or will I need to switch to the RLK16 using a 16-POE+ switch?

    Any help is appreciated!

    It wasn't something to report...they were questions for the forum. I found out on my own: it works great
