Extend Nest Outdoor Camera power cable?
Hi - I need to have a very long cable run and am wondering if I can splice a wire (CAT-5 or 4 telephone cable maybe) in line with the Nest cable. Specifically, I need to add 70 feet to the cable (camera to be mounted on a pole in the back yard). The reason this concerns me is because I currently have a D-Link camera on that pole and when I spliced and added the extra wire, there was such a voltage drop that when the IR LED's came on the picture was extremely distorted. I doubled the wire gauge and it slightly fixed it but is still a terrible picture. I don't want a repeat on the Nest cam. Anyone have a long cable run like this?
