I am in the middle of purchasing this

house. It would be my first house and I am curious to know what system, camera, wiring, power supply you recommend. In the attached I have listed where I would like cameras to be located and how i would run the wires. I am curious to know which type of wire, connectors and the likes, and which cameras i should use. these will be located outside.

I greatly appreciate your help and thank you very much.


I know the drawing isnt the best But I only have paint on my computer to edit photos.

Everything really depends on the resolution you are looking to get as well as the budget you have for this project. I would recommend not to run any Siamese cable into your Power Distribution Box as any high voltage lines will interfere with the signal. You can always have a Low Voltage Dist. box inside and just simply use a pvc elbow that will allow you to pull the lines as well as make any terminations if you need to.
