Non PoE IP CCTV systems run a separate power cable for cameras (Etherent cable+DC power cable). It benefits those whose IP cameras are far away from the main recording unit. To prevent losing voltage, each camera can be powered up locally. This collection also achieves up to 2MP Full HD resolution as well 960P 1.3MP. IP camera needs to be configured on the network. Compare to the traditional Plug and Play Analog system, you do need to do some configuration until the image shows up on your monitor.
