The O5K1 is the only camera compatible with the ZIPK8T2 (JLA Kit)

The IP camera ports only support one camera per port. The cameras would begin to switch off between the multiple cameras. If they are using a POE switch, they have to plug the switch into the Ethernet port, and the cameras will be on their local network.

On the D16HU, the first 7 channels support 4K at 15 frames per second. The 8th channel supports 4K at 7 frames per second. Channels 9 to 16 don’t support 4K TVI cameras. Channels 8 to 16 support 4MP cameras at 30 frames per second. On the D8HU, channels 1 to 4 support 4K at 15 frames per second.

If you are using the O4P30X on the NRP or NRL, you will need to power the O4P30X with a separate power supply. Not with the built-in POE ports. The O4P30X uses POE+, which the NRP and NRL ports support 802.3at. 

The N32NRE has 2 HDMI ports. The 1st HDMI is the primary monitor, and you have mouse control. The 2nd HDMI, you won’t see mouse control. It’s just a secondary view.

Yes, the Speco Access mobile app needs to have port 9000 forwarded in the router for you to access the doors remotely.
