Someone from Florida contacted CCTV Camera Pros with the following questions:
A Google search led me to you and now I see you are in Florida (where the house my wife and I bought) is as well (Parrish, FL).
Here is the deal – I have experience in alarm systems and home wiring so I took a run at doing cameras around our house since we are only here part of the year. 16 Channel Swann DVR, basic cameras that came with it and supplemented by some odds and ends to fit specific needs.
DVR is on the air and three of the cameras came up fine. Those three all used the kit cables that came along with the system. The others I have to say were all wired with pre-made cables off of Ebay 150 ft or less. I pulled a camera down this morning to check it on the DVR and sure enough the camera is fine.
OK so I had to learn the hard way!! 🙂 I do bulk cable and make my own network and video cables, who knows why I thought I should go the way I did.
So now I am looking for bulk Siamese cable that is GOOD stuff for openers (pulling in a Florida attic was not my idea of fun the first time – doing it again…. well…..
I guess that means I need BNC connectors to go along with it and I suppose if I am to do it “right” compression would be the right answer?
What I don’t see is the male and female power connectors to go along with the BNC’s.
Can you point me to the right parts and numbers for all of this so I am not guessing?July 19, 2009 at 9:15 pm #31794
