Afternoon guys, just after a little advice if possible

Im a spark by trade but to be honest, usually leave the CCTV to the people that know-how

Now a family member has bought a CCTV kit, and asked if id install it as a favour

Nothing fancy, just a cheap kit off ebay I think

But I have a few questions, these cameras come pre-wired with 2 ends which are quite bulky for getting through walls etc.. without making big holes

Is it possible to use cat 5e/6 instead ?

Also the DVR will be going in the loft, would a WIFI bridge work ok to connect it upto their internet ?

Thanks very much

Matt

Hi Matt

Yes cat5 is good but you will have to use baluns at each end.

As far as network from loft to router it is easier to use eithernet over power . Something like these.

Why not buy a weatherproof box to house the connectors or if they are dome cameras, buy the dome bases
