I want to set up covert camera indoors need to mount on ceiling and have wire run along the wall or at a corner of the room idea is to have either tiny wire then paint over it or use flat wire whatever works and safe.

I could use "flexible flat cable" (FFC tape)?

They do make them completely flat, but can i put 12v trough it safely?

Can i use thin bare (without shielding) cooper wire just bury into wall and paint over it, this wont be a fire hazard running 12 volts over it wont heart it up too much since CCTV cameras don't draw that much amps.

Whats the minimal gauge (diameter) of cable to run like 10ft and still have decent signal?

LED do use them and pretty sure they draw more power than cctv camera.

Hi. Cable is not for cctv .... 75ohm you need

Paint over cable is going to look a mess plus terminating at ends is also going to be a mess

Use cat5 and cover cable with moulding
