We are replacing a defunct security camera system with a new one. I was quoted new wiring for the whole deal, the installers are now trying to not re-wire the whole setup. I now have a second hole into the side of my house.
The house is 14' off the ground in a hurricane prone area. I get that there isn't a way to hide the wire. The new wire has been zip tied every 8" to the old secured wire that was snipped off the old cameras.
This doesn't seem correct to me. See pic. Black wire is old wire that doesn't have enough power for cameras and is actually stapled properly to house. White wire is new. I was planning on removing the black cable when the cameras came down as I didn't think anyone would secure things to it. Given that we're hurricane prone, I do not want anything 'extra' permanently mounted on the sides of the house. Am I nuts or is what they've done normal practice?
