New Audio Surveillance Device Eliminates 3 Cables (Louroe)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 16, 2014

Adding audio to IP surveillance systems can be a pain, often requiring a completely separate set of devices with their own cabling scheme and power supplies, incompatible with the single UTP usually run for cameras.

Now, Louroe has introduced their IF-PX, a PoE audio interface with built in preamp, power supply, and more designed to eliminate complex cabling and power supplies normally required.

In this note we take a look at what this box does and how it may simplify audio installations.
