Hello:

I discussed my proposed security camera needs with my local security camera "expert:" 4 cameras, high resolution, audio recording capability. (It's legal here.) He advised running cat5 cable to each of my future IP camera locations. Done. Then when I asked about powering his recommended 720P cameras, he said I would need to have an outlet near each camera. (Why didn't he tell me that in the beginning?) Finally, he opted that I could use PoE. Okay, that will work. Next I asked about getting the audio. Apparently I need to add a separate microphone to the cameras (some cameras come with a microphone). When I asked about powering the cameras and getting the audio to my HVR he started talking about running (more) wire!

Maybe it's time I get some other input.

Is there a way to use cat5 cable to PoE my cameras and microphones AND retrieve my audio?

 

Many thanks.

The IP Cameras that will allow a Mic to be attached to them are:
IPVD-EL3MPIR
IPBC-EL2MP
IPBC-EL3MP
IPOB-EL2MPIR50L3312
Any of the IPPTZ's

Some IPPTZ require PoE +. 

Could you point out what cameras you have so we can help you.

Don't forget about all the TP Series IP cameras. They also have Audio and POE and are great values:

WOW Thanks for posting.  You probably will want to call sales too. 

 

Some of our IP cameras are able to have mic connected to them for audio. All is recorded at NVR for playback and you can watch/listen in live too if you want at a PC.

Most of our smaller IP cameras can be powered POE or 12VDC. The PTZs come with their own power supply's. The Mini-O does not. 

We carry NVRs with POE built in or you can get a standalone POE switch. If you get a camera that is audio able you would need Ethernet cable to camera and power to mic. Still no way to get around the power for mic to reduce wiring.  Good news is you can always call us for help on ordering and setup, so you get the right stuff the first time. Also we can give you some information for your installer so he knows what he or she is doing. Most people here have done installs so we what were talking about.

Wow is right.

I don't have any cameras yet. Mr. "Expert" recommended some 720P, 3.3~12mm Vari-Focal Lens, 12V DC / PoE, cameras.

Finding a network camera that is PoE isn't a problem.

Finding a network camera that has (or will allow) a microphone isn't the problem.

I don't even think finding a network camera that is PoE AND also has (or will allow) a microphone is the problem.

The problem is will a single cat5 cable let me do all of those things simultaneously or do I need to run more wire? I just spent the whole day running wire. If I needed to run other wires next to the cat5e it would have been nice to know that before I climbed up and down the ladder a billion times and through all the attic and crawl spaces. I thought I was done with the wiring!

Whew . . .that felt good to get some of that out of me.

 

Daniel Ross said, "If you get a camera that is audio able you would need Ethernet cable to camera and power to mic. Still no way to get around the power for mic to reduce wiring."

I think Daniel Ross might have answered my question, but I'm not quite certain. It sounds like he is telling me that all I need to do now is plan to have power available to the mics. At least that means only running additional wire to two of my wire runs. I really thought the mics would get their power from the cameras.

So my question is still will a single cat5 cable let me do all of those things simultaneously or do I need to run more wire?

If I need to run more wire, what kind and what connectors will I need?

 

Thanks all for listening to my rant and still being willing to help.

That IP camera has integrate audio and wifi capable, but not POE. That is an indoor camera. If you need external IP cameras then you will have to cable for power to mics. As far as I know we dont carry IP cams powered POE with integrated audio. Many IP cameras we have are POE and are audio capable.

For the connectors you will need

You could use another pull of cat5 to power mic if you wanted, or 18/2.
