How to Wire our 24 Volt IP PTZ Camera (Spotlight)
The Spotlight PTZ cameras uses 24 volt power rather than POE because it requires more power than is capable of Power-Over-Ethernet for its natural white light spotlight. The Laser should also be powered via 24 volt power; although the Laser can be powered via POE, doing so will reduce the range of the Laser IR - we recommend powering via the included power supply.
Our Sharpshooter Bullet camera also requires 24 volt power because of its long range infrared lights, but its guide is slight different. Please make sure you are following the correct guide.
This is how the power connection on the camera will look - there's a place to insert the bare wire and a tightening screw to keep it in place.
On the power supply, the white wire is power and the black wire is ground, as is standard with US regulations.
