Hello @John
Additionals on CCTV cameras If the cameras are to be installed in harshly environment such as areas with dusts, waters,steams and etc ,the cameras need to be installed in metal boxes with glass for visibility this will safely keep the camera against any mechanical damages…
Further more if you’re installating the IP cameras with POE functionality make sure you route your camera cables away from power cables to avoid electromagnetic interference. And maintain the cable length according to cable specification and other peripherals such as switches and repeaters.
