A customer recently contacted CCTV Camera Pros with the following questions related to useing CAT5 cable with analog CCTV cameras.
I could use some guidance and supplies to get a three camera surveillance system setup at my house. I have an analog CCTV DVR and the contractor ran Cat5E 24 AWG wire from each camera to the DVR in the mechanical room. So what i need to know is what i can do to get it hooked up on the DVR end (cameras are already hooked up). The Video In for the Cameras are Male BNC, not a hundread percent sure if power is to the cameras already or not, but I would assum that they might need to receive power down the Cat5E wire as well. I will also need an end for Internet for the Cat5 they ran for network connection.
