[Q] Can CAT 5 be used in applications other than data transmission?
[A] Yes. There are many applications being developed for using CAT
5, and many others that have been in use for some time.
there was CAT 5 Cable, there was CAT 3, and still other forms
of voice and data transmission wire beyond that. These days,
many people are looking at CAT 5 to carry data and voice over
the same cable. This is possible, due to the fact that there
are unused wires in the cable during most data applications.
5 is used by some to connect security camera equipment to monitors
or other devices. Other security devices like motion sensors
and glass break indicators are also used commonly in these systems.
other applications are being developed in the realm of home
automation. Having a central hub in the home that controls all
of its vital systems, including lighting, heat and air, and
of reasonable cost, high transmission speeds, and ease of installation,
CAT 5 is likely to see continued development of non-data applications
for many years to come.
