iirc

 

4 for data + 2 for power

 

if you only have 4 you'll need  to power locally

Cheers mate any idea which cores or numbers in the rj45 are which?

 

There's another working ip camera near this and I can get to that cable, any way I can splice that cable and take the power from there?

Not for POE cams. You would need to add an endpoint. Id just power the other one locally either POE or 12v etc

So add a four way switch there if you also have mains power there and take both cameras off the new switch

Yes connect pins123 and 6, but it wont poe off the dvr that way  you need to add at the nvr end a poe injector or switch that supports mode A

I have successfully done this at sites where recabling is not an option to run 2 cams down 1 cat5
