Solution for JS

Solution for J.S residence Design is for 7 rooms 3 floors. Cable usage estimates are based on installing structured wiring panel on a centrally located wall on 2nd floor for optimal wiring. If this is not possible more cable would be needed. Did not recommend composite cable as you only have 3 video outlets and ordering 500 Ft of composite cable would lead to lot of remenant cable. Instead use individual Cat5e and RG6 cables to wallplates. Please let me know if you are interested in Carlon cable management products and I can add those items as well.

Please read solution specification below and then look at solution components (links to products) at the bottom to get a complete understanding of your solution. Please send us email with questions/comments you might have.

VC : video camera, run one RG6 and 1 cat5e to each of the interior/exterior camera location. Three technologies available, CCTV($), IP camera($$), IP camera with Power over ethernet($$$) wire for both.
