Cabling for Your Security System

Post on 24th of March, 2014
Video and power cables are often an afterthought when purchasing a video security system. But purchasing the right grade and length of cables can have a major impact on your system’s performance. Learn about the options available, plan ahead, and avoid these common mistakes.
Step 1: Perform a Site Assessment
Cabling
Quality
Cheap video cable is the primary source of poor video signals. Paying a small premium for security grade, high gauge cable will save you many frustrations, time and money in the long run. So don't skimp.
Supercircuits offers high-quality power and video cables, backed by industry leading warranties to protect your investment.
Pre-terminated
For your convenience, Supercircuits offers pre-terminated power and video cables, so they are virtually plug & play — no special tools needed.
Length
Cable typically comes in 25 ft, 50 ft, and 100 ft segments. Most cable runs for cameras are well below 100 feet, but if you need longer cables — no problem. We'll be happy to provide pre-terminated cables to the exact length you need. We also offer bulk rolls of cable so that you can cut them to length on site.
Power supplies
Quality
All Supercircuits turn-key systems come with a regulated power supply for each camera. These power supplies deliver just the right amount of power to the camera, which can add several years of life to your product.
Options
Many of our professional customers prefer to upgrade to multi-camera power supplies. These only require a single power outlet, simplify the use of a UPS power backup, and provide for a clean, neat installation.
