IP Camera Test Monitor POE Instructions
The PoE (Power Over Ethernet) feature of the MON-IP7 / MON-7HD allows the installer / user to power and connect to the IP camera they want to test without the use of WiFi or power supply. This gives installers the opportunity to adjust the angle of view and focus of the IP camera prior to running permanent cable. It can also be used to troubleshoot a possibly defective camera that is not powering on when connected to the network POE switch / injector.

They are basically the same product except in addition to IP camera and analog CCTV cameras, the MON-7HD also supports HD security cameras (AHD, HD-TVI, and HD-CVI cameras). All other functions are identical.
