Unboxing The FunLux 4 Channel 4 Cameras sPoE NVR System
The FunLux 4 Channel sPoE 720P NVR System does not come in the prettiest box, but if it can deliver on our needs at the great price point, who cares right? The front of the box has a graphic of the NVR and the four 720P cameras.
The side of the box has specification information, which we already provided on the previous page. It appears the real model number for this system is KS-S44TE-S-1T with the 1T probably indicating 1TB hard drive you can save $10 bucks and go down to the 500GB hard drive model if you would like.
Once you get everything out of the box, here’s what it looks like and included;
- (4) Camera Mounting Hardware
- (4) 720P PoE Cameras
- (4) Ethernet Cables
- NVR System with Power Supply
The cameras being 720P HD is a very good thing as it should allow a ton of detail to come through. The camera housing seems very sturdy and it also has a sunshade on the top to keep the glare down. Since its PoE, all you need to power the camera is the provided Ethernet cable. Both the power and the data transmits over this one line, which makes the installation very simple. Another good feature about the camera is that the mounting hardware can either go on the top or the bottom of the camera, which we’ll see later in the installation process.
Here’s the mounting hardware that I found seems to work really well. The mount can turn in 360 degrees on both axis, to give a ton of flexible mounting locations. You could mount this on the side of a wall, hanging from a ceiling, or even sitting on top of a roof or some other structure.
The all black front of the FunLux 4-chan 1TB NVR features a power LED and a hard drive LED.
The rear of the NVR has four Ethernet ports for your four camera’s, a reset button, external alarm feature, VGA monitor connection, network Ethernet port, two USB ports, DC power in, and your on and off switch.
Now that we have seen the hardware, read on to the next page and we’ll perform a complete installation of this NVR Security System!
