I uses some pretty green CAT 5 to connect up security cameras in a
sub shop. No networking there either. I believe one pair carries
power, one carries audio, and another pair carries video. One cable
per camera. They even use the same plugs/jacks, so you can use
pre-built cables instead of building your own. (Or barrow the cable
for a temporary network connection...)
