If you are moving to a new house, and you want to do new wiring of the house, then for sure you are looking for the information in which you get to know about what kind of cables you need to use in your new house. I know you have a question in your mind that this is the time of the wireless then why I am still focusing on the cables, the logic is very clear you can get more clear results in the cable wiring.

No doubt wireless connections are reliable and connectivity speed is fast. But sometimes wireless connections start getting lost, because wireless signals required air medium. If there is a storm, or bad weather then it could affect the signals. 

In this article we will tell you what type of cables you need for the TV aerial installation, CCTV and for other purposes. First you need to clear that every cable is not suitable for any all device. Tv aerial’s cable is not suitable for CCTV, and CCTV cables not suitable for the tv aerial. So it is good you should know which cable acceptable for tv aerial and CCTV cameras.

Cables for TV Aerial Installation

The cable used to connect radio / TV antennas and satellite dishes to TVs and STB / PVR is called coaxial cabling. There are a wide variety of types of coaxial cables, including the 50 ohm coaxial cable used for some network applications and the 75 ohm coaxial cable most commonly used for TV systems. You want a 75 ohm coaxial cable, commonly known as RG-6.

Note that in the UK there is a cheap cable marketed as “RG6” that you do not necessarily want to install. When it comes to choosing a good coaxial cable, you will want one with all copper conductors, this includes a solid copper center conductor, a copper shield and a copper braid. This costs a little more than other types of coaxial cable that do not have all copper conductors, but are worth the extra cost. If you have a lot of internal cables in your home, you should install Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) cables.

Cables for CCTV

CCTV are necessary for the house, so you should learn more about it. If you are considering installing CCTV in your home, it is a good idea to insert these cables as well. I recommend pulling the cables to any potential location on the CCTV camera or somewhere nearby so that the cable can be easily connected to a camera.

The best places to monitor are the front and rear entrances, the garage, the car view, the gardens and so on. At the end of the DVR / NVR cables, you will also want to consider getting a wired Ethernet connection at this location so that it can be connected and allow remote viewing / access of the CCTV system when you are away from home. This is most commonly done via a smartphone / tablet, but it can also be configured for access via a PC / Internet browser.


I hope it is clear that which cable you can use for the tv aerial installation and which you can use for the CCTV cameras. I am not bounding you that you cannot use other cables for the installation. There are many other cables you can use for the tv aerial and CCTV installation. The cables I have mentioned are usually use for the installing purpose, and these are the most famous cables.
