Your problem is the voltage drop on the cat5e cable when the irs turned on. Because 60-70m is very long distance to carry enough power on 12v dc. There is a big voltage drop on it when the cameras power consuption increases because of the ir leds. You have to put the power supply closer to the camera. As close as you can. And you have to use 3 pairs of the cat5e lines in parallel to carry enough power on it to avoid too big voltage drop. Greets!
