We are looking at building a 2 storey house in Melbourne,
I have talked to some people and they said to have provisions for the security cameras on the ground floor, otherwise it would be impossible to install wired PoE cameras
I discussed this with my builder, they said I can buy a system from them, but they won't do provisioning for a custom camera setup - the quote they gave me for a 4 camera setup is 3600 with with 2 TB NVR - which I think is pretty high - for a brand I haven't heard of before
If I want to get the cameras installed after the house is completed - what are my options ?
I was thinking is it possible to run PoE ethernet cables from the ground floor upto the roof ? is that possible ?
same with the bell - (like if we want to use a smart bell later) - they didn't want to provision for it, so I just added basic bell for the wiring so we can use the power for smart bell in the future
