What accessories need if I do need to run any cables longer than 165 feet?


Cat5e cable must be used for cable runs that are longer than 165 feet.
In order to use Cat5e cable, you must also use Video Balun accessories. Video baluns convert the Cat5e signal to BNC video signal, RCA audio signal, 12V DC power signal, or RS485 data signal.
Cat5e cable will be able to transmit BNC video signal, RCA audio signal, or RS485 data signal up to 1000 feet; however Cat5e cable can only transmit a 12V DC power signal up to 200 feet. If the security installation application requires a power signal to be transmitted more than 200 feet, we highly recommend calling a local electrician for advice.
