Wired camera diagrams?
« on: October 28, 2006, 07:29:24 PM »

I know I've seen a wiring diagram for the anywhere cam here SOMEPLACE. But I can't find it anywhere. I need to know which wires are video (+/-) and power (+/-).

What I have now is the six wire phone plug.

Question: What is the pinout for the Anaconda, NightWatch, and XCam Anywhere camera cables?

THANK-YOU Alex....err Puck.  That was what I needed.  I buried my lines to a couple wired cams. Along side the phonewire (6-wire) extention I buried a few extra wires....S-video, CAT-5, 4 wire phone... just-in-case.

Just-in-case happened (it always does) and a critter chewed Through the small part of wire (under the deck) that wasn't underground.

I am having a problem getting it to work.....I am not sure why yet.

I have my camera back in service! I bought a crimper that can affix four or six wire phone lines as well as Cat5 ends (what is that RJ11, 14 and 45?). The roughly 50 feet of Cat5 worked fine!

...(what is that RJ11, 14 and 45?).

I do believe:

RJ11 is used for phone lines (and X-10 CAMS) and can be 4 or 6 conductors.

RJ45 is for Ethernet (PC LAN) with 8 conductors.

Not sure about RJ14.

Thanks Puck.

At least I got my driveway cam back! I can't believe I had so much trouble getting the wires in the correct order. I guess it will make for a humorous story at my DNA (National Dyslexia Association) meeting.
