If you need to install your security cameras to monitor your garage (isolated from your house), your driveway, etc., running wires to make your security cameras work is the most important thing.
Even wireless security cameras need power supply to work, unless you use battery backup wireless counterparts (but you need to replace the battery constantly). If you want to install wireless security camera systems, there are few troubles for you to install your wiring. How to run cables for your outdoor PoE security cameras, or how to install power wires for outdoor wireless security cameras? The below detailed guideline could be handy.
The best way to run security camera wires outside is to run burial wires, but not an easy job.
#1. Plan the security camera wire route. Find a rather short and easy route to bury your conduits so that the burial job could be easier.
#2. You need to use PVC or metal conduit to protect the wires from tampering (both human and natural – squirrels, birds etc).
#3. If you need to power your PoE security camera outside, you can just fish a CAT5/6 cable, since PoE cabling can provide both data connection and electric power for your PoE security cameras. In terms of wireless security cameras, you just need to run wires for the outlet providing power for wireless security cameras. (The outlet should be waterproof and weatherproof.)
#4. Mark the place where you want to cut the hole.
#5. Drill a hole to run security camera wires from your house. Once the hole is cut in the wall, insert a drill bit to drill a hole so that you can run wires through it. Remember to use a right angle drill with hole saw bits for boring large holes. Keep the holes centered on the studs. Drilling a hole in the wall is much easier than drilling in the floor. All you need to do is to drill slowly and not press too hard. Stop when you feel the drill penetrate the wall.
