PoE Powered NVR (Aimetis E3200PoE)

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 06, 2012

Most NVRs or VMS servers need to be plugged into mains power and (hopefully) connected to a local UPS to ensure backup power. What if you could eliminate both of these and simply plug an NVR into a network switch and power it up just like you would do with an IP camera? That's the concept behind Aimetis newest NVR appliance. In this note, we examine the key differentiators, its cost and competitive positioning in the market.
