Need recommendations please on installing CCTV Cameras on a commercial roof, we are in Florida so weather is a concern. Its also being inspected

Should we use PVC, conduit or armored cable. We have approx 750' to run.

Any manufacturers recommendations would be appreciated

Thank you for your time

might be a case were hiring a local contractor to run it would be beswst. Anyway outdoor rated cable and depending on level or protection required conduitl I am just guessing but I would think uv resistant PVC would be better if you want long term protection.

PVC for sure. Weather is not your only problem - insects & birds can develop a taste for the insulation. Another advantage is that the cabling can be disguised to an extent so that its purpose is unknown.
