Install wired security cameras in a restaurant

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I am new to the forum. Thank you for all the help here.  We are opening a small restaurant soon and want to install a security camera system for the lobby and outdoor. 

Our electrician did not put receptacles above our dropping ceiling, so I have to use wired cameras to run low voltage cables from the console.  I am wondering if running those cables above ceiling would be code violations or not? 

Thank you.

check your local code but low voltage cables can be run above the drop ceiling. One thing to check is to see if above the drop ceiling is a plenum space. If so you may need t run plenum rated cable.
