Wiring sensors with LAN cables

Post by MUDO » 04 Dec 2019 01:07

I would like to use 8 separate wires of LAN RJ45 cables for wiring sensors to ZUNO. I want to use some existing + new cables in house to connect door sensor, temperature and humidity sensor, motion sensor etc to ZUNO/Arduino. I believe it is mainly about consumption of sensors, which shouldn't be an issue for mentioned sensors. Also cable category 5 vs 5e vs 6 makes no difference I believe. Maybe distance would be a problem? Let's say 10 meter would work?

Any experience or suggestions? Thx.
