The Network Bridge function allows you to bridge the NVR's PoE network card to the NVR's LAN network card.
This allows cameras to be powered via the NVR's PoE ports, but still be discoverable on the network. Any cameras connected to the POE Ports of the NVR when Bridge Mode is on will need to have their IP address set manually to match the LAN network card as automatic DHCP is not available when Bridge Mode is active.
How to enable Bridge Mode for NVR's POE Ports
- Navigate to Main Menu > Network > Switch.
- Enable Bridge Mode.
- Select OK on the prompt.
- Click Apply. The NVR will then reboot.
