“Our company has owned a camera monitoring system that has been installed and maintained through ByRemote for 6 years. The system has been a valuable tool for monitoring sensitive zones involving cash, inventory, and other vulnerable assets. The system provides a factual basis to counter employee dishonesty and helps to maintain policy enforcement. Being able to monitor the business from home or other off-site locations is fantastic.

The service I have received from ByRemote has been outstanding over the entire 6 year period. Any problems or upgrades have been competently addressed in short order. I have always received professional and courteous service. I have had very few problems and the staff of ByRemote has occasionally given me calls just to see how things are going. ByRemote has provided service above and beyond my expectations.

Thanks for the great service and product.”

Power-over-Ethernet Installation
Power over Ethernet or PoE technology describes any system to transmit electrical power, along with data, to remote devices over a standard twisted-pair cable in an Ethernet network. This technology is useful when it would be inconvenient or infeasible to supply power to each camera. Maximum distance per run is approximately 300 feet. The Category 5 (Cat5) cable runs may be either plenum or non-plenum.

For the byRemote surveillance system using PoE-ready cameras:

  • Run 1 Cat5 cable to each camera location and terminate with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. See RJ-45 pin-out below.

Low-Voltage Installation
When the cameras are not capable of Power-over-Ethernet a power source will have to be provided. Instead of having to install an electrical outlet near each camera location, it is recommended to run 2-stranded, non-shielded 18-gauge electrical wire to each camera location. This can be run at the same time the Cat5 cable is run. All cabling should come back to the main location where the router will be placed (typically the office area).

For the byRemote surveillance system using non-PoE cameras:

  • Run 1 Cat5 cable to each camera location and terminate with RJ-45 connectors at both ends.
  • Run 1 18-gauge electrical cable to each camera location and splice with the power supply. Please note whether the camera is AC or DC on the power supply that comes with each camera.

RJ-45 Pinout
Ethernet 10/100 Mbit (Cat5) network cable wiring and layout of 8 pin RJ-45 male connector. For straight-through cable, terminate the same at both ends of the Cat5 cable.
