I'm taking this a step at a time. Some of these questions may sound dumb, but this is my first foray into the world of PTZ security cameras.

I just received my  20X 2 Megapixel Infrared IP Network PTZ Security Camera [#IPPTZ-EL2MPIR250L20X].

 

1. The two groups of wires I attach to the camera  are the RJ45 female port and the 24v power supply wires if I am using it as an IP camera, correct? I am using an NVR about 200 feet away in another building.

2. I am mounting the camera on new construction. I had the electrician leave me two wire systems poking through

a hole in the roof parapet. A Cat 5e and some small gauge wire for the 24 volt power supply that runs inside the building to be spliced into the 24volt power pack.

I noticed that this "extension wire" has only two wires, a positive and a negative but the pig tail coming from the camera has three.

Where do I attach the ground. the bracket maybe?

 

3. I bought a Samsung bracket I am going to attach to the inside of the parapet . The wires supplied with the Power supply aren't long enough to pass through the bracket and pole. Should I tape up the wires I'm not using with electrical tape so it will pass through the pole more easily?

 

Thanks,

Tom

The ground is just that ground. As long as the bracket is attached to a structure that is grounded that is perfectly fine. As for pulling the wire through a poll or any type of conduit you should use http://www.homedepot.com/p/Kle.....tP6CvRDuSo

 

Or something like that

Thanks. I've pulled al the Cat 5e wires. Next I have to terminate them and test them.

 

Just a few more questions about the wiring:

 

1.The wires from the power supply. I bought a bag of blue insulated connectors from Security Camera King.

Are these adequate or should I solder the pair and heat shrink them?

 

2.A question about wiring the camera to the NVR.

I have a Mac. My internet comes in through a Century Link modem and then to my Airport extreme Base station..

One the camera end only two wires get attached, the Cat5e and the power supply cable, is that correct?

On the NVR end to use the one camera, where should the wires go?

the blue beans are good just make sure to give them a tug so you know they crimped correctly. If weather or water is an issue you will need to take extra steps to ensure it is water tight. They do have gel inside, but do what you can to stop water from getting inside. For connecting the camera to the NVR typically the camera will be connected to a router or switch and the NVR connected to same device. You do not actually connect camera to NVR directly.
