Connectors and Cables found in Security Camera Installations

Siamese Configurations and Paired Wires: I wanted to cover these first since the ideas of Siamese Cable, Siamese Configuration, and Paired Wire are applicable to all kinds, types, and gauges of wires. All these terms essentially mean the exact same thing. They all refer to a single cable that contains more than one wire. Closed Circuit Television (or CCTV) security camera installations typically use a three wire system. This system is commonly referred to as “Siamese Security Cable” or “Siamese Cable” and is simply 1 RG-59 cable and 1 18-2 cable (both explained below).

What Cable Should I Use?

When it comes to installing CCTV equipment, there are several things to consider: What type of cameras will work best for me? What type of DVR should I use? Should I go into IP cameras or regular analog cameras? Do I want a standalone system or a PC based system? Do I need infrared cameras or will non infrared cameras work? Do I want wireless or hardwired cameras? These are just a section of the questions that you should ask yourself. On my most recent camera installation, I went with an Ultimate Mini DVR, which is an outstanding standalone unit. I used a compilation of infrared and non infrared cameras. After weighing the pros and cons of wireless vs wired cameras, I chose to go with wired cameras due to their quality and heartiness. I chose to go with siamese cable over my other options. This solution is not going to fit all situations and here are the differences and benefits for all.

For instance, one issue that you might not want to think about is employee theft, but it is important to make sure that your employees are not stealing from your business.
