I recently purchased the B800 4K cam system...the cables are way too short, and my installer suggested I buy 200ft cat cables. Does cat8 cables work with the cams/dvr?
Dear Customer, Thanks for choosing Reolink product. Yes, the Ethernet cable should be down compatible. Therefore, cat 8 should work with the camera. Thank you and have a nice day.
Thanks forgot to as what is the difference between STTP & SFTP CABLE? Which is better for your 4K systems?
There are any number of web sites explaining the different types of twisted pair ethernet cables. If you want to "future proof" to the extreme, then Cat8 cables may be worth the extra cost, especially considering that labor cost will be a huge percentage of the total installation cost.HOWEVER, even 8MP cameras ("4K") will not come close to the capacity of ordinary Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable. There are usually markings on ethernet cable. What do the marking say? (All it says on the web site is "18m network cable".) Whatever cable they include in the box is certainly "good enough."
