What’s the easiest way to get two for one? Use Security Camera King’s PT-6 Power splitter. This little device sounds more complicated than it really is, but it can also save you tremendous amounts of extra cabling time and provide to sources of power from one line as well.
Many of the devices used in a digital video security system also require an ample supply of electrical power. On a standard type system, the Digital Video Recorder or DVR and the monitor usually get their power from a nearby wall outlet. They normally use 115 Volts of Alternating Current (VAC) and draw an electrical load of varying amounts of Amperes or Amps. (Notice we said “Amps” and not “milliamps” or mA).
