RJ14 Plug (end view)--for our wired SC15A/SC16A Anywhere, SC18A Anaconda, SC21A NightWatch, and SC23A NightWatch 2 cameras. Please note that recent revisions of these cameras lack pins 1 and 5; pin 3 is a common ground for audio, video, and power. To extend the cameras, you can use CAT3 or better wire in a straight-through configuration. We have successfully tested a one thousand foot CAT3 extension cable with no noticeable signal loss. You can also buy six-conductor telephone couplers and six-conductor telephone extension cables if you do not want to make your own. Before purchasing, visually confirm that you can see six conductors in the cable or coupler.

Please note that recent revisions of these cameras lack pins 1 and 5; pin 3 is a common ground for audio, video, and power. To extend the cameras, you can use unshielded twisted pair cabling with at least three pairs, like category 3 (CAT3) cable, in a straight-through configuration.
