Vicon setup and connectivity banner


With the Vicon Advanced system, up to 8 Vue cameras are supported. For details and other PC configurations, visit the Vicon website FAQs and select Operating systems and PC, or contact Vicon Support.

On this page:

Except where noted, references to Vicon Lock, Lock units, and Lock apply to all current models of the Vicon Lock unit (at the time of publication, this includes Vicon Lock+, Vicon Lock Studio and Vicon Lock Lab).

Simple Vero system for up to 24 cameras

With a single 26-port PoE+ to connect up to 24 Vero cameras.

Simple Vero system with Lock and/or one Vicon video camera

With a single switch to connect up to 24 devices including optional Lock unit and / or Vicon reference video camera

Small Vero system with Gigabit PoE+

A small Vero system showing how Vero cameras, optional Vue video cameras and one or more optional Lock units can be connected to a single Gigabit PoE+ switch with 10 GbE uplink.

Large Vero system with a single Vicon video camera

Large Vero system with Lock(s) and/or more than one Vicon video camera

With multiple switches, more cameras (or other devices) can be connected.


In cases where a Lock unit or Vue is not required, up to two 26-port PoE switches can be daisy-chained, meaning that the Gigabit PoE+ switch is not required. In this case, a camera on the primary PoE switch must be nominated as the sync source in the Vicon software (see previous diagram).
