Hi,
We have installed about 12 outdoor POE cameras on a parking lot. Each camera is mounted on lightning pole about 5 to 8 meters from ground. Poles are about 30 to 50 meters apart and there is an outdoor connector box one meter from ground for every three poles. The connector box is mounted close to the pole at the middle. There is a POE switch inside the box to feed the cameras; the switch has four POE ports but we utilize only three. The switch has an extra fiber port to connect directly to the main premise.
The switch is feed directly from the main premise from a 4000VA ups.

What do we need to do to protect the cameras from lighting?
What cables do we need to use ?
Do we need surge protectors ? What kind ?

Thank you
