    Yes, you can. You can connect the NVR and your cameras to the same router. In LAN, you can access the cameras separately via Reolink software, you also can access them under Reolink NVR.

    Hello Barak,

    Did you get this working?

    If so, what equipment did you use and how did you connect it up?

    Was this to add one or more cameras in 'addition’ to the amount of available ports on your NVR?

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi, here is some more information:
    After the cameras are powered on via PoE switch and are connected to the same router with the PoE NVR, generally, those cameras can be added by the NVR automatically. However, if you set a password for the camera, it will show ”Invalid PWD” in the NVR IP channel page, and you will need to input the correct camera password to add the camera to NVR.
    And you will need to plug the NVR to a monitor via HDMI/VGA cable to a monitor then do the operation via the monitor interface.
