This is a high quality, solidly built power box that you can tell will last a long time. We use it for all of our exterior cameras. Strategic placement of the power box limited the length of our camera power runs and drasitaclly reduced the length of a couple runs specifically. We've mounted this outdoors and connected to a dedicated power line via a protected outdoor outlet box. You can tell the way it is built that this unit will last for a long time.
