This Application Note is intended for installers and technicians that perform on-site installations of Eagle Eye Bridges and CMVRs for the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS.


Proper installation of an Eagle Eye Bridge/CMVR is crucial to ensuring reliable operation for customers. Improper installation can result in problems such as overheating, offline cameras, or reliability issues. This Application Note explains some of the best practices for Bridge/CMVR installations as well as practices to avoid.


Eagle Eye Networks provides a variety of Bridges/CMVRs to choose from based upon the application and the installation environment. We strongly recommend using a rack mount bridge if the customer has a rack.  A rack mount Bridge/CMVR is the preferred solution in all cases where a rack is present.  It will provide the most reliable operation and make for cleaner and more reliable wiring.  A Compact Bridge/CMVR, for which this Application Note mainly applies, should only be used when a rack is not available.


This Application Note gives examples for different types of installations.  It is by no means exhaustive nor the only way to properly install equipment.  Please adapt and utilize this information for your installations.
