Running a Cat 5 Router to another room.

My NVR is located in a room downstairs and all the cameras are wired to it. My modem and router is upstairs in a different room. I want to run a CAT5e cable from my router to the NVR.

My question is can I hook it up to a switch then the NVR to the switch… I want to connect other devices in the downstairs room… or should I run two CAT5e cables from my router to the room. 1 dedicated to NVR and the other dedicated to the switch for the other non-security devices in the room?
