    Evening guys

    I am looking to install 2 POE Cameras and route the network cables through my loft but an unsure how to do this due to the construction of my nose

    It is solid granite walls mid terrace with a slate roof, I am unsure how to get the cabling through from the loft down to the cameras

    Any suggestions

    Thanks

    I would drill up at an angle at the top off the wall and hope you miss a wooden joist, you will need a sds drill and big drill bit and some wire rods just go through the mortar not the granite.

    There might be a gap underneath the slates where you can push some cable rods up through, especially if it's an older house with no felt/membrane between the slate and roof void. You'll be left with a small amount of cable that you'll need to feed around the back of the guttering, but once the camera is in place, it would be difficult to see. Use a deep back box for your cameras and bring the cable in through the bottom.

    Bianco's method might work depending on the construction of the house. If there is a cavity and it's not capped off at the top, you can drill up at an angle into the cavity a few inches below the guttering and with a bit of luck, you'll be able to fish out the cable in the loft (providing that you can get to it)
