I'm installing a CCTV system in my home. 4 cameras, 1 DVR. It is pretty basic. I found what I want for cameras and DVR but I have read that a lot of issues arrive with the cables that you run. I don't want to spend too much money on it and found RG59 Cable online.
Has anyone had experience with this cable? Is this cable a good price?
I found more expensive cable online but wanted to get some advice before a spend a hefty chunk of cash on cable. Also, you probably know it would be a hassle to install the cable just to find out you have to tear it out because it doesn't work right.
It all depends on what type of cameras you have. Also, what about power? If the camera uses 59 to move the video around, it likely needs at least a 2 conductor wire to power the camera.
You are right. I forgot to mention that the indoor/outdoor cameras use RG59 and need power. That is why I thought this cable might work well because it is siamese cable which has both the video and power connections.
