  1. Hi, Need help in finding an replacement outdoor CCTV camera, we have an older Q-See bullet analog camera with some LED illuminator built in, we have it on fence there are 2 pillar lights one of them close to the Camera, and it does cause interference with the nighttime mode, I will attach screenshot we have the CCTV camera power supply plugged in about 15 feet from the camera and then we have about RG-59 180 foot run back to the home we looking for something with better resolution especially at night any help would be appreciated
  2. Hi, the toss thanks for replying to my post , yes the new and old cable are in conduit the camera is located inside intercom box we installed brand new camera here link to the camera specs http://www.doorking.com/sites/default/files/downloads/1812-148-K-9-11_CCTV_Kit.pdf why did you use F connectors because we had to make 2 splices in the cable the coax is inside an intercom box, the coax works fine we tested it would have been tough to get that cable out because of the pole the size of the box the other splice was made about 35 feet away from the pole we had to remove old coax from underground conduit that had water in it, we removed all water and ran new coax cable in that conduit we tested the new 40 foot run with the camera inside the intercom box, and it works great we also ran Quad Shield RG-6 Coax Cable Jumper to the intercom box camera and attached it to the splice with the 160 cable run the to the home, and we get video without any problems
