For instance I searched for these cables the the cable head looks too big to fit in the camera. Has someone purchased this and know it fits?

Sorry not a reply to the original post, but I'm also interested in getting a clarification on PoE cables. I'll be using an all PoE configuration with Cat6 cables for 4 cameras. Three of the cameras will be within 30 meters of the router, but one will be out at the gate maybe 60 meters away. I think I read that Cat6 cables take a perfomance hit beyond 55m. But I also understand that the Alert Cameras don't require Cat6, Cat5 being just fine. I'll use Cat6 as I'm building a new home and for "future-proofing CaT6 seems like the smart move. QUESTION: are there any issues in mixing Cat6 with Cat5 cables? As in can I use 3 Cat6 cables and 1 Cat5 cable without perfomance issues? SECOND: Like the original poster,,, is there a spec for the size of the connector?,,, are some too big (especially for out door use/weather seal isssue)? Thanks
