  1. It is Cat5e cable. They are not IP cameras. So I was looking at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XCGZ3H5 This would solve the immediate problem. Or 2 of these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0144RM1RY/ would solve adding more cameras. I can use the existing power from the working camera line to power them. Would that work?
  2. Have 2 cameras run out to our external garage about 80 feet from the house. I ran a 2" conduit for all the data. Well, one of the 2 CCTV supplied cables just stopped working. I only ran 2 but did pull 3 cat5 cables and 2 cat6 cables (along with a bunch of RG-11 and POTS). I know I can run 1 camera and power off of one cat 5 but can I run 2 camera and one power. This little mishap has made me think about adding a camera or two inside the garage. Wire wise I know there is enough but I have looked extensively on the web and not seen anyone do that. I have seen adapters that can run 4 cameras but no power off of a cat5. Wanted to get a bunch of the bulans and power plugs with the set screws. So can I run 2 cameras and one power off of one cat5? Thanks in advance.
