How do you run cable through a vaulted ceiling?
The easiest way to run the wire is to cut a hole in the drywall at the header and another in the ceiling, drill a hole in the header then fish the wire over though the attic then slip it though the hole in the header and patch the dry wall.
Can you extend security camera cables?
Simply place this connector right between two security camera cables that have BNC ends. CCTV security camera cables already have the BNC Male connectors on each end, so they will not plug directly into each other, that is why an adapter is required.
How can I hide my CCTV wires?
The easiest way to hide security camera wires outside is to make them blend into the environment. Staple the cables to the walls with a staple gun and paint the wires the same color as the walls. In doing so, the security camera wires will be more unnoticeable by the intruders from a distance.
How do you run speaker wire through walls and ceilings?
If your surround speaker is wall -mountable, then (see our note below) drill a hole in the wall so that you can duck the speaker cable in there and run it up the wall cavity. You will likely have to use a fish tape to pull the speaker cable up and through the bottom hole and out the surround speaker hole.
What is a cathedral ceiling?
A vaulted ceiling slopes upward from both sides to form a peak. On the other hand, cathedral ceilings are defined by their symmetry: they feature two equal sloping sides that meet at a higher point in the middle and often conform to the shape of the roof.
Can I run wire on top of ceiling joists?
Cable run parallel to rafters or joists must be stapled at approved lengths and kept back from the edges of a joist or rafter by 1 1/4″ or nailing plates will need to protect the cable. You cannot run cable over the top of joists or fastened to the bottom of rafters.
Can you run wires over joists?
Code says that you may not staple wires to the bottom of a floor joist unless the wire is 6-2, 8-3, or larger. Smaller wires must be run through bored holes or be attached to a running board. Don’t use wire runs as a clothesline.
How do you hide wires on ceiling?
You can hide wires in an exposed ceiling by painting the wires or your ceiling beams or using plastic or fabric cord covers, wooden molds, or decorative boxes. However, make sure your wires are safely in place to avoid any accidents. You can do this by pinning them in place, except when you’re using fabric covers.
Can I connect two BNC cables together?

Are all security camera cables the same?

Can you run CCTV cable next to power?
Always keep your cable away from any main power cable. Don’t leave excess amount cable near cameras. Try not to join cables.
Can I tap into an exterior light in order to power a security camera?
yes! The cable is likely to carry mains power to the porch light, and thus assuming your security camera is also mains powered, then it will be the same cable. It might be different if you have an ultra powerful porch light, or ultra low powered security camera, but for “normal” equipment – you should be good to go.
Can I bury security camera wire?
Designed for the outdoors, the cable can withstand the elements; even being buried directly in the ground without a protective conduit.
