Hi there,

I recently purchased a FLIR Lorex NR9082 4k NVR and wanted to run custom length cat5e cabling to my cameras.

Has anyone done this and had any specific issues/recommendations?

I want to avoid using a combo of 100' and X ' cabling as that will create excess cables sitting around.

I appreciate your help ahead of time.


Thank you,
Robert

You measure out what length you want then terminate on both ends either with plugs or jacks. Kind of how a building is wired with cat5/6

Look for RJ45 crimping kit, and have a few practice attempts.

Yes look up RJ-45 A and B pattern

Make up both ends the same. In this part of the country we normally use the B pattern. As the other poster said practice a bit as it is easy to flip flop the wires.
