Hey guys, my new place has an old style intercom and it has some kind of noise always coming from the speaker so i decided i want to replace it with a video camera or video intercom. Can someone help me if it is possible to use the wiring, because my door bell for intercom is down 15 stairs. 

 

Here is some pictures of what i have:

That looks interesting. In order to do most video, you'll need a cat cable. Is it possible to fish wire there?

Looks like you have some power wires there, so yes, that should be more than enough. We just don't know if that's crossed with 120V, or something with 12V power. You might want to take a multi-meter to them first... I can't tell if those are neutrals/grounds or what..
