When installing security cameras outdoors, most people look for a camera that is IP67 rated. This ensures that the camera can stand up to rain and temperature fluctuations. While this ensures that the camera itself will stand up to the elements, it does little to ensure that the camera’s cable connections are protected. This is where CJB-E130, a security camera junction box, comes in. CJB-E130 security camera junction box is a metal structure that your camera will be mounted too to house your camera’s cable connections. This provides protection for your camera’s cables from not only the elements, but potential vandalism as well. Continue reading to learn what the advantages are of using security camera junction boxes.
Prevent corrosion and electrical shorts with CJB-E130, while our cameras come with a water-resistant connector. This does not mean they are waterproof. Moisture can still creep in and corrode the Ethernet or coaxial connection and ultimately short out your camera. This is especially true in areas that get a lot of rainfall and/or when the connections are left exposed to the elements. Purchasing and installing a waterproof junction box will help prevent this type of failure, as your connections will be contained within the waterproof box.
Prevent vandalism with CJB-E130, When cables are left exposed, it makes it very easy for a criminal to simply cut your cables. Once the connection is severed, the camera will no longer be recording and the criminals can go about their business without worrying about being recorded. Installing a metal junction box will make it much more difficult, as they will have to physically remove the camera from the junction box to gain access to the cables. Another useful feature of junction boxes is the ability to run metal conduit directly into the junction box. This is great when you need to run your cables on the outside of a building. You can pull your cable through a metal conduit and connect the conduit directly to the junction box. This way, none of your cables are exposed, further reducing the possibility of someone cutting your camera’s cable.
