Nutone to Nucleus - need electrical help!
My house was built in 2001 and has a NUTONE intercom system which I dearly hate.
I thought the cable run to the satellite intercoms was cat 5e but actually the cabling from each satellite intercom to the base station in my kitchen is proprietary nutone "IW-6 3PR 22AWG" cable. There are 3 twisted pairs (6 wires) - black/orange/red.
I want to install and power my Nucleus Anywhere intercom units using POE but ethernet cable is 4 twisted pairs and it looks like the power runs across all pairs and 4 pairs (8 wires) and 6 wires is not enough.
My base station in my kitchen is where all the satellite intercom cable runs to and there is AC wiring there so I could plug a POE switch in where the old NUTONE main box is.
Can anyone think of a way to send power through the Nutone IW-6 cables *safely* so I can power my Nucleus without having to pull wires?
