    Continuing the preparation for starting actually installing the cameras, today has seen me busy tracking down 'essentials'

    A new pair of side-cutting cable cutters (large, and small), a replacement hot glue gun (a magic tool with a myriad of uses !) and a small tool box to put my ever increasing set of 'CCTV Camera' tools into & keep them in one place

    Finally today found a supplier of Cat 6 UTP Solid Copper Exterior Sheathed ethernet cable and got a good price - for cash - on a 305mtr (1000 ft) full reel ...... that should last me a bit :)

    The eBay seller of the two 4MP vandal resistant domes has supplied me with their IP & logon details so the first 2 cameras are ready to go up

    All I need now is a break in the weather - and to get Blue Iris itself

    Blue Iris is on sale today for $49 US.

    Also dome cameras may cause problems with condensation, bugs, dirt. I recommend turrets.

    Why vandal resistant cameras. What model and make cameras ? I just have my cameras cover each other.

    The red tape is electrical tape, the 2 black tapes are sillicone tapes?

    I'm guessing the white tubular things are what goes on the ethernet cable to seal the 'plugs' for an IP camera ??

    What are they called & where does everyone buy them from
