Duo 2 Tips: Recommended Installation Scenarios & Settings
It makes sense to use a shielded cable (FTP,STP...) when the camera does not have a shielded connector? Camera is RLC-410.
Most Ethernet cable is not shielded. There is no need for shielding because of the "twist" in the pairs of wire.
My response was perhaps too short. I worked in computers and telecommunications and was responsible for installation of thousands of network outlets as we completely rewired a college campus two times. We also purchased (literally) thousands and thousands of Ethernet patch cords. In all those years, the ONLY time shielded cable was installed was when a contractor wiring a new building "got a good deal" on some shielded cable. We made him pull it all out and reinstall with unshielded cable that met the specifications.
