smithzone Posted May 17, 2017 Share Posted May 17, 2017 I am looking into running some CAT6 through the attic to 4 RJ45 ports on the left side of the house. I run a mix of LOR and e1.31 through a dedicated router and PC on the far right side of the house. In previous years I had to run the cables across the entry way to connect all the controllers. I have a pretty good understanding of LOR network and star topology so I am fine there. What are some best practices for installing RJ45 ports outside? I am in Florida (so no snow) and thinking I'll just place an exterior rated wall box with a short peace of conduit up through the soffit right under the eave. Then some sort of of flip cover over all the plugs. Anyone have a similar set-up? Rust issues? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
