Installing a few PoE IP camera under the eave, I am trying to put a electric box to contain the network cable connection and to prevent vandalism.
As I have a few normal interior metal boxes lying around, would those be considered ok to install in a damp location for low voltage device? (metal box like this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Raco-2-Gang-Gray-Metal-Interior-New-Work-Standard-Square-Celing-Wall-Electrical-Box/3129657 )
These electric box is used only for vandalize prevention.. I am not relying on that for the weather proofing. The ethernet cable has it's own water tight connector and I will be painting these boxes just to make it rust slower.
My concern is would that be something against the code? Really not sure about the low voltage related code. Anyone knows about it?
