Hi all, I've purchased two IP cams to work on my front porch. (HDW5231R-Z, and PFB203W for the mounting. I probably need to buy something else for the pole mounting on the driveway cam) One focusing on the driveway, and one on the porch/front door itself. I've read a few mounting guides and most seem to suggest that you should be putting the poe cable directly through a hole inside out that the camera mount will cover. However, I think this is impractical for my usage, or at least I'd like to avoid it as much as possible. The Driveway Cam will be pole mounted, most likely, and it's easy enough to manage cable wise. It can just follow the TV/cable line that are already there to the underneath house crawlspace up to the room I have the POE switch installed. For the front porch cam, however, I'm not sure what the ideal positioning would be. I don't believe there's a place I could easily drill through the entire wall to have it laid flat with the cable going inside. The house is brick, and as long as I have the correct drill bit and concrete screws it seems doable enough to mount it, but I'm not sure what the best method for handling the poe cable would be. I'm assuming that using a cable runway/conduit solution is preferred to have the camera run along a path until it can meet the other cabling and go down the same path under the house? Or is that a bad way to go about it? I'm also aware I should probably buy outdoor rated Cat6 cable, or use a conduit solution. Which do you think would be preferred? And also, this is an incredibly noob question I know, but... how does the conduit stick to whatever path I place it on to meet the other cabling? Is it something that has an adhesive or is there some other method for running it along a set path? I've never really done anything outdoor related haha. For inside I have a cable raceway running along the ceiling corners, but I don't know if you use the same sort of thing for outside brick material or not. Anyway thanks for the help! Hopefully this explains enough, I can try to get pictures once I get the cams and test out a few different places to see what works best, though I imagine the driveway cam will definitely be pole mounted.
