I have a colorbond roof, and RACV stated that sometimes CCTV cameras can't even be installed when that's the case.
Does anyone have experience running the required ethernet cables in that context? Right now the only reason I can think of that would make things a bit more complicated is that insulation on the eaves could make it harder when running the cables with a snake. But I am a complete beginner, so I might not be thinking straight.

I don't want wireless cameras, for various reasons. and I checked my build photos, it doesn't look like the eaves themselves had insulation installed, but there definitely is insulation installed right next to them.

Problem is physically running the cables, I want to know if anyone has gone through the experience in that context (colorbond roof, insulation somewhat in the way)...
My cameras are POE, no need for an additional power cable

Any decent security/electrical contractor wouldn't see this as an issue. Yes it does take a little longer for the installation. We have our tricks...like using a plastic snake.
Its defiantly easier with POE
