    Hi Pike welcome to the forum, this should help you decide what cable you need, it should make your search easier.
    What Kind of Ethernet (Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a) Cable Should I Use?

    Network Cable on Reel CAT6 F/UTP 100 m Grey Solid
    CAT6 cable with shielded twisted pairs, making it less vulnerable to external electric influences. It is compatible with 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps network environments. Perfectly suitable for long-range connections due to its solidity.: Type:Shielded twisted pairs
    : Conductors:AWG26
    : Material:Copper Clad Aluminum (CCA)


    Would that be ok £40 for 100 meters thanks

    Do not buy that Crap CCA is a big give away, you want full copper and for that either Cat5E or Cat6 full copper will work with your system, POE just stands for Power Over Ethernet which for your NVR means you need either Cat5E or Cat6 terminated both ends with RJ45 and away you go
