I’m replacing several old cameras and ended up moving the DVR for better location. I could use some of the existing siamese cabling but not all would reach to the new location. Is it acceptable to use a female/female BNC coupler to extend the existing cabling to the new location or should I run new cable? I’m thinking the coupler would work but don’t want to rig it. Thanks.
You can use a coupler but it is always recommended to run new cables as any splices or devices in between will reduce the quality of the signal.
