Hi I have purchased D-Link DSC 5222L IP Camera , but there is no power source available at the intended place ( Nearest power source is around 5m away). What are the options available in this case..?
One option which i found is, using DC Extension cable( found some on Amazon : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QJBYAM8?psc=1 ).

1.Where do i get these DC Power Extension cables in Singapore ?
2. Is there any other option to extend the cable ?

Thanks

Most consumers won't have it.

let me put it bluntly, using power via ethernet from your switch/router (if its capable)

The 5222L is not a PoE capable camera anyway.

There is a cheaper but less elegant (or aesthetically pleasing) solution: cut the wire of the DC cable, join a pair of long wires between the cut ends, and then tape up the joints with electrical tape. Doubt the additional resistance of the wire is going to affect the operation of the camera.

There is a new player on the market, alternative to Dropcam which I used extensively and I was very happy. However they were bought by Nest (Google) and Nest is pushing its own app which is not as polished. As they say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Netmato cost US$200.

Power over Ethernet, I bought my injector & splitter from MARIX, their POE splitter is using 5.5x2.1mm. For using with the common china brands, they provide you with a converter. Maybe bring your camera to them to test out.

But, they already stopped all sales til next week, cos of moving office.
Or do what boss suggest, self cut and extend.

Now that's not a very good way of extending. I do not recommend this for anyone without electronics or electrical engineering knowledge

Care to share the dangers of doing this? I have no electronics or electrical engineering background and is keen to learn. I do a lot of DIY stuff that involving cutting and joining wires (including AC ones like lighting for cabinets etc.).
