CCTV cameras don't get wired to the breaker. They are low voltage, you would need a receptacle with a 12V converter.

I'm not that much of a beginner

Anybody know if there's a way to change this terminal? Or do I have to change the whole panel? (I can't find a replacement bar because it's a really old box)

I have three switches at my front door (front hall, outside, and upstairs lights). All work other than the front hall. Bulbs are good. Is there a problem with:

A. My switch
B. My light fixture
C. My wiring
D. Not enough information

correct. Unless he finds something seriously wrong in the wiring.
Probaby the swich or fixture need replacing. no big deal, doesnt require an electrician.
