Amcrest UltraHD 4K Outdoor Bullet POE IP Camera – Review & Setup

I have about 20 Amcrest cameras and I love their product. In this video, we will be reviewing and setting up one of Amcrests 4k outdoor POE camera. Model# IP8M-2496EW-40MM which is super long but if you want the same one just search for the model.

Also, I did buy an SD card to add to the camera so it can record to the SD Card if needed. Additionally, an Amcrest camera like this requires a POE switch or injector to power it. Have a question? Let us know!
