1. Basic Wired Live Streaming Camera System

This is one of the most basic set up’s using the EZ Streamer and a security/IP Camera to live stream your webcam to YouTube and/or Facebook Live. Simply connect the EZ Streamer to your router or a network switch on your network. Next, run an outdoor rated CAT6 Ethernet cable from your router or switch to the IP camera. You will also need to power the IP camera using this configuration. The Ethernet cable can’t be any longer than 300′. Once the systems is wired configure your EZ Streamer on the EZ Streamer portal and you’re live. This process only takes 5 minutes!

2. Basic WiFi Live Streaming Camera System

This is second most basic set up’s using the EZ Streamer and a WiFi security/IP Camera to live stream your webcam to YouTube and/or Facebook Live. First, connect the EZ Streamer to your WiFi router or network switch. Next, install our WiFi IP camera within wireless range of your WiFi router and plug the AC power outlet into your camera. Once the systems is wired configure your EZ Streamer on the EZ Streamer portal and you’re live. This process only takes 5 minutes!

3. PoE (Power over Ethernet) Wired Live Streaming Camera System

This configuration is exactly the same as Configuration 1 other than now we are installing a PoE (Power over Ethernet) AI switch. The PoE switch will eliminate the need for the camera power supply. This simplifies the install since the camera will be powered using the Ethernet cable. Note, your IP camera must be a PoE type IP camera. The “AI” PoE switch will extend the maximum length of the Ethernet cable from 300′ out to 820′.

4. Multiple PoE Wired Live Streaming Camera System

This configuration is exactly like Configuration 3 only it demonstrates the expandability of the set up. Since the EZ Streamer can support encoding up to 4 cameras at once to YouTube or Facebook Live you have the ability to install three more cameras to the system as the configuration diagram shows.
