Use cat 5 cabling

3 pairs can be used for power and signal via a balun if it's an old style camera or use the cat 5 for an IP camera, so at least you can crack on and wire up

I use SystemQ in Chesterfield (Trade only).
I've currently got 3 HD eyeballs with IR lighting on the front and 4 to go at the back (medical problems temporally stopped installation last summer).
Cables put in are combined co-ax with power. Cameras are available as 12 or 24v depending on length of run.
Used them for many years for the odd CCTV - never any problems and guides good and helpful

Thanks guys

Looking for something that comes as a package nothing to elaborate something that comes in a box, screw it on the wall connect an appropriate cable and I can see it on my tablet
My buddy has a Chinese offering from city electric and seems to tick the box but am very wary of buying anything from city

Unless you are putting in a expensive pro system , the one form citys will probably be just fine.

The cables are normally thin co-ax with 12 volt power and just have extension to plug in if needed.

The cheaper ones are often hard to set up as the menu system is crappy, and often the firmware cannot be updated for the latest codecs etc, but you can always see if the company has a website with downloads for the model , and see if its supported.
