Note: This is a Dahua OEM HDTVI system, for example here is a similar form factor camera from Dahua:
http://www1.dahuasecurity.com/pro...16991.html

Example of a starlight HDTVI model which I think would work well with this system:HAC-HDW2231R-Z
2MP Starlight HDCVI IR Eyeball Camera
http://www1.dahuasecurity.com/pro...12471.html

I know the PoE versions better, so I do not yet know where to get these starlight HDTVI products, believe you maybe able to find this or similar models from Aliexpress vendors.

The general rule for new wiring installations is to install cat6 cable and not coax. If you already have coax, then do consider a decent coax system as the wiring job itself can be significant.

Thus If you are installing new wires and can afford to, I would recommend getting a PoE system.

Recommend using bulk cable so that you can return any kit you purchase while under the warranty period. Using bulk cable will also make it easier to pull the cable lines and allow you to drill smaller holes. The amount of time installing either cable should not be significantly different for small scale projects.
When using bulk cable you will need to purchase the tools to allow you to crimp connectors to the ends as well as termination at jacks / patch cables.

Recording Resolution: 2MP (1920x1080)
Compatibility: QC PIR Analog HD DVR's
Connector Type: BNC
Angle of View: 114°

Theoretical ID distance = 9.65 feet
Thus place the cameras lower than 8ft high and within 9.65 feet of subjects you may want to get a good ID image of

Note - as the camera is spec'ed as a HDCVI camera I believe you can replace a couple with HDCVI Dahua OEM starlight models if you need a better night time view


ID distance list for comparison here, as well as numerous notes in the wiki shared to help others evaluate and install cameras

thanks, this is my plan as well, just stick with POE.

i'm familiar with making ethernet cables and the orientation/ordering of the individual strands of wire - does POE require a different order of wiring or any special types of cable ends? Can you use CAt5 for POE or only 5e? or only 6? thanks, you seem knowledgeable on the subject

Hi Ionizer,

Normal Cat5e/Cat6 cabling works.

Check out the notes in the wiki here for wiring PoE as well as RJ45 crimping:
https://slickdeals.net/f/10409612-lorex-dahua-oem-6x-4k-8mp-security-camera-system-w-8-port-poe-ip-nvr-2tb-hdd-kit-at-costco-b-m-ymmv-for-799-99

[ notes, for those looking at this Q-see coax system - you would need coax bulk cable and BNC connectors - so the PoE reference above would not apply for this system ]

i already looked at the thread you referenced
i cant find where in that very long writeup you are referring to the wiring for PoE and whether or not it is the same as regular ethernet usage

there is a link here:
http://www.incentre.net/wp-conten...le568b.gif

but that link is exactly as i pasted it, not a proper forming link (looks like someone copy/pasted and forgot to copy shortcut instead.)

Mat2000, you seem to know a lot about cameras..so had some questions. I have the QSEE QT5140 DVR and cameras that came with it and I had bought them from Costco about 4 years back. I paid a lot of money for wiring when installing this camera. The installer at that time used the cables whose pictures I have attached.. sorry i am not good with cables.. are these coax cables? If they are or not, would it work with this 1080p camera?

Hi Mnsweeps,

Yes, that is coax. You can tell by the RG-59/U print on the cable jacket.
It is the proper wire for video! ( 75 ohms! - not 50/52 ohms )
Thus you should be good to go as long as the wiring is in good condition.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RG-59

When replacing the cameras do double check that the end points are good, sometimes they get jacked up and you have to redo an end point.

thanks, but this seems to be the standard ethernet configuration of wires, meaning it's no different for POE, right? am i missing something?

Yes, exactly - that's the great thing about PoE - standard ethernet cable.

Note, some vendors in the past have attempted to make cheaper cables by not including all wires in the cable - those cables are not ethernet standard

Thanks Mat2000. Appreciate your notes. I tried to remove one of the existing cameras and I couldn't figure out how to pull the cable from the base of the camera. Are there any videos out there as I couldn't find any..

Hi Mnsweeps happy to help out.

BNC connectors typically have a twist to lock / unlock
