  • The REVO Aero HD & HD 2.0 comes with HD compatible Siamese cables (both BNC and power connectors).

  1. On each of these cables are two labels:
    • One is marked, "To Camera"
    This end connects to the camera's cable.
    • The other is marked, "To DVR"
    This end connects one of the DVR BNC channel ports.
  2. Grab 1 camera and 1 Siamese cable.
    Take the side of that chosen cable that's marked, "To Camera" and connect the BNC connector to the camera's BNC connection (push and twist).

  3. On that same cable and same side, connect that power connector to the power connector on the camera's cable.

  4. On the other end of that same cable, connect the BNC marked "To DVR" to an empty Channel port (BNC).
    Repeat those last 3 steps (2, 3 & 4) for your remaining cameras and cables.

    • With all the BNC connections connected, all you should have left are the power connectors on the DVR side of the Siamese cables.

    The REVO Aero DVR kits come with multiple power adapters (two or more depending on your kit).
  5. Plug one of the remaining power adapters into an empty surge protector (make sure the surge protector is plugged into an active wall outlet).
  6. Connect the power plug on the other end of the power adapter into the receptacle socket on the power splitter.
  7. Connect each of the power plugs from the power splitter into the power connector on the Siamese cables which are now behind the DVR.
    This will supply power to the connected cameras.
Warning.png Do NOT connect more than 1 power splitter to 1 power adapter!
It's one splitter per power adapter.
