Easy to hook up.

There are many factors including Camera wattage, and cable wire gauges that will determine your overall max distance.

Regardless, the one pair (sender/reciever) I recieved worked so well, I ordered another set (yet to arrive).

Works great, picture is clear, no issues at all (My Max run is about 200') I will be picking up 4 more very soon!

I have 2 Cat5e lines running to one camera each (using one balun on each end), and two cameras on one Cat5e line using two balun's on each end.

To get two cameras on a single CAT5e line:

I had to do a bit of discovery when pinning them out to split one cat5 into two cameras, (I will provide some or of that info below) but for the one to one connections if you punch it down on both sides straight through (I used type B) they work great. When I pinned them out I found the following:

Cat5 Pin 1 - video (BNC Inside) +
Cat5 Pin 2 - video (BNC Outside \ ground) -
Cat5 Pin 3 - Audio (RCA Inside) +
Cat5 Pin 4 - Power (Inside) + <-- there are two power in and power out, only one is needed for a 12v camera.
Cat5 Pin 5 - Power (Inside) + <-- there are two power in and power out, only one is needed for a 12v camera.
Cat5 Pin 6 - Audio (RCA Outside \ Ground) -
Cat5 Pin 7 - Power (Outside \ Ground) - <-- there are two power in and power out, only one is needed for a 12v camera.
Cat5 Pin 8 - Power (Outside \ Ground) - <-- there are two power in and power out, only one is needed for a 12v camera.

To make two cameras work over one Cat5e for this setup I used only video and power, and used only 1 of the inside and out side power. (see my customer images for the physical diagrams.)

I terminated two ends to the single CAt5e on each end of the cable, (4 ends total on the cable) then plugged two of the balun's into the cable giving me the ability to use two cameras over 1 wire.

I have been using these Baluns for several weeks to connect to a 12v high resolution color underwater video camera through a 500' cat5e cable. Image is perfect and voltage drop isn't too bad(about 1/2v every 100 feet). Great buy at this price. (Make sure your source voltage is high enough to counter the voltage drop or you won't be able to power your camera)

I purchased video baluns that look like these from another company at a much higher price ($35.00). I thought I try these at half the cost an after they arrived I found them to be in a different package and both were made in China, identical right down to the stickers. I have used these for at least 5 months now and the quality of video is great.
Why pay more for the same product, I highly recommend these.

It is nice to know I can just pull Cat5 wires and have audio, video, and power ready.
These things worked perfectly, it is the only way I'll ever set up CCTV again for the rest of my life. I ran one stretch of wire almost 300 feet through conduit to my gate at the beginning of my driveway to catch license plates.
Checking the video coming in through this and coming in over the standard 60' cables with just Audio/power there seems to be less noise and interference going over Cat5. foolish to not use these!!!

The only downside is the size of the unit with the BNC connection fastened to it. not a big deal.

I bought four of these and all four worked perfect. What a time saver. Much easier than dealing with BNC cables and connectors.

I bought 8 of these units to wire up my cameras at my property and they worked perfectly. Prior, i had bought some 100 foot BNC/Power cables and i had some go bad and got tired of replacing them. They were cheaply made, but regardless, I wanted something better.

These are Cat6 Compatible, which is what I used. Many reviewers are stating they are getting 200 and 300 foot runs, and I just wanted to shed some light on how that may or may not be true in your case. There are many factors including Camera wattage, and cable wire gauges that will determine your overall max distance. I have done the research and tested it and I highly doubt you could get 1000 feet with a cat5 as its listed in the description.

Cat6 has a wire gauge between 22-24. I used belkin high performance Cat6 on my install, which comes with 23 gauge wiring. The Balun uses 2 pairs of wiring for power, which is necessary to carry the power load across it. In my case, a pair of 23 gauge wires is almost exactly the same size as a 20 gauge wire. (.0226" diameter wire doubled nets a .032" Diameter which is the spec of a 20 gauge wire).

The reason the above is important is due to the fact that these cameras run on 12v. 12v requires a large wire to carry the current over long distances. My cameras are CCD's and use 24 IR LEDS and are more power hungry than normal (4 watts each), which is why I opted for Cat6. To be exact, factoring in a reasonable 10% voltage drop, using the balum on a 1:1 ration (no modification to split the wire to run 2 cameras) with a 23 Gauge Cat6 cable will go a maximum of 180 Feet on a 4 Watt camera and only 90 Feet on a 4 Watt camera using only 1 pair of wires for power. My longest runs are about 80 feet, which allows for no more than a 4.
