I'm setting up my home alarm (a dsc 1832) using cat5 cables (these were the closest I could find in my country to the specs recommended by the 1832 manual).
I've had to make some splits since the cat5 cables has 8 wires and most sensors only need 4, but joining each wire individually is a bit of a mess.
¿Would using rj45 connectors to join the wires have any drawbacks? I already have the rj45 crimper and tester so I'm hoping that could simplify the installation.
More context: Old house, there was a single pipe we could spare for networking, alarm and doorbell, and given the topology there was no choice but having to join some wires since we couldn't fit more cables in the pipe to run everything end to end. All concrete walls here, getting a new pipe in for cables is very expensive. RJ45 connectors are very very cheap.
