I spoke with a great guy in tech support today who recommended a WS-POES-8-7-48V60W switch for my 8 channel swann 960h dvr and cameras. I dont think the cameras are IP and other cameras I have been looking at to add to the system look like they need a converter to make them work with ethernet or a long bnc and power cable.

I think needs this to work with your switch as well as my cameras that came with the swann unit from costco.
