    POE voltage

    PoE+ is usually for beefier PTZ cameras

    Dog poisoned

    Franky, Im sorry about your dog that is awful. Hikvision Darkfighter and Dahua Starlight cameras provide really good low light performance, watch some youtube videos on them. As far as resolution I would buy the highest you can afford. Good Luck! Louis

    Need help indentifying wires

    The white wires with red and black wires in it look like 16/2 speaker wire. The wire with the little center pin protruding looks to be RG6/coaxial cable. The yellow wire looks like CAT5. There are two types of cameras analog and ip. Analog cameras use a coax for the video feed and a pair of wires for the power so in theory if both types of white wires were run to the same location you could use it for a camera (it is more traditional to use a "siamese" wire that has rg59 and 2 conductor for power attached to each other). CAT5 can be used for Digital IP PoE cameras. Coax is also used for cable tv / satellite while the speaker wire may be used for speakers depending where the other end terminates. A Cat5 wire could be run for data or phone in addition to cameras depending on where it terminates -Louis
