    Hi group, I'm looking to install a small domestic CCTV system (approx 4 cameras), I understand that you need a video cable to run to each camera, but where do the cameras get their power from, is it supplied from the DVR or will I have to locate a power source in my loft for each camera?
    Regards Otto

    Could well be Ethernet connected in which case it would be PoE (power over ethernet)
