The 5-Way Power Distribution Box (5 Amp) allows surveillance system installers to easily manage the power to multiple CCTV cameras at a central point (usually at the location of the DVR). This allows for a cleaner camera installation. For example, instead of having 8 power supply plugs into power strip/electric surge protectors, all of your camera power wires can neatly be run to a power supply box. Each cameras power cable simply screws into the power supply box, and the box plugs into a standard power outlet. No electrician is required for installation of the box.
