What is FTP cable???

As long as the cable and installation conforms to standards (Cat 3, Cat 5, etc.) then there's no problem using it for cameras and POE.

I would talk to a local electrical contractor to find out what the local building codes require when running cables from indoors to out. Conduit requirements, electrical box required, etc?
