Pin-out for Wired Camera Connectors
What is the pinout for the Anaconda, NightWatch, and XCam Anywhere camera cables?
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 unshielded twisted pair cabling with at least three pairs, like category 3 (CAT3) cable, 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.
