Here is a recent chat transcript with a customer regarding cabling options:
Customer: Hello, I need help powering my cameras…what type of connector would I use to hook up the siamese cable power end to the camera end?
Customer Support: DC Flying Lead – http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/Power-Cable-Lead-p/pt-3.htm
Customer: Ok then what can I use to connect the ends of that to the siamese cable? Should I solder them and then cover them with black tape or use some kind of crimper?
Customer Support: That should be fine. You are just splicing the raw wires. Butt connector or wire nut will work as well.
Customer: Do you guys sell those?
Customer Support: No, but they are quite common.
Customer: Ok great…and how about the power for the other end? Should I get a power supply box or just splice the power adapters?
Customer Support: I would recommend the distribution box. Or, you can use the PT-4 Power Lead – http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/CCTV-Accessory-PT4-p/pt-4.htm with individual power adapters for the cameras.
Customer: Ok thanks. One more question… What type of coax wire would I need so that the ends properly crimp down onto the wire?
Customer Support: RG-59 Siamese has both the coax for video and the copper pair for power – http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/RG59-Siamese-CCTV-Cable-s/259.htm
Customer: I will go ahead and purchase that.
Customer Support: With Crimp-on BNC connectors – http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/CCTV-BNC-Crimp-p/bncmalecrim.htm
Customer: Do you sell the compression connectors? I have a compression tool.

Customer: Great thanks.
Customer Support: Thanks. Have a good day.
