Qos for security cameras

Do I use upstream or downstream qos for power over ethernet (POE) ip security cameras? If you can, will you explain why? Thanks.

I've never used either, and never had any issues.

Hi,
Me neither. Cameras just work fine on WiFi. All my cameras are HD ones.

Re: Qos for security cameras

On the R7000 QoS prioritises traffic based on either the type of traffic or the device you're sending the traffic to / from.
If you want a device to have a high priority in receiving data you choose the download QoS and for priority on sending data you use upstream.

So if your question is about saving data from your cam onto a disk, you use upstream.
If your question is about showing the cam stream without interrupts on a screen, you choose downstream QoS with the screen as priority device.
