Cable and costs options to hook up your security cameras
There are three basic approaches to hooking up security cameras and digital video recorders
(DVRs). You can
use premade plug and playSIAMESE cable or you can
use bulk RG59 Siamese cable. Both cable types combine a cable for the video and a cable for the power. The third less
likely outdated option is to use the very expensive, out of style and untidy way of using RG 59 cable and
then have to buy separate power cable. The costs of 500 feet RG alone at our completion is more that twice
the costs of 1000 feet of Siamese cables . And when the costs of speaker wire for say 1000 feet - of TT$460.00 is added your costs becomes
real high but the quality is not any better than either the bulk Siamese or premade Siamese cables. Cable to
cable RG 59 and separate power supply works out at $ 246.00 per foot.
So you real choice is to either use Bulk RG-59 Siamese CCTV Cable which works out at 57 cents a
foot with less labour and tidy situation and mind you the manufacturers only supply industry
Or you do not want to take the hassle of having to buy a whole roll of bulk cables and need just for your camera
needs you can resort to premade Siamese cable.
