Best Practices and Tips for Installing IP camera underwater

Recommended Posts

I have a client that is requesting to have us install an underwater camera at a depth of approximately 2'. I am planning on installing an IP67 rated camera, but am concerned about the best way to make the connections.


I am planning on using direct burial Cat5e cable with some sort of waterproof RJ45 connector. Any tips or suggestions on the best way to utilize cable, connectors, junction boxes, flex conduit, or whatever other materials to make a reliable connection would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance.

From my experience with making dive lights, I would place a bullet cam inside an underwater housing with a single cable gland entry point. Easy and quick.

There is probably a more professional solution.
