I'm going to run wired, and bury the cable in PVC. I'll run the outdoor rated, shielded CAT6. Need to buy/install four more cameras on the box too.

I don't really want to run wireless for this, though that was my first thought.

outoforder2day:
Shielded cable is a good idea. Always run the latest spec cable. Why run 5 when you can run 6?
Also, you can look at powerline adapters. They don't always work well, so you'd have to test it, but that's my primary plan for my barn. I have one similar to this in use in my house right now. https://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Powerline-Ethernet-Adapter-TPL-401E2K/dp/B004D9V8C8
It works well within my house and, since the barn is powered from the house, should work there too. Note: I have not tested that yet.

So that converts it to fiber optic? I'm guessing I would need one on each end? I found a shielded 150' CAT 7 cable for $35, so that's probably the route I will go.

I also just purchased another system for the house and one of these two is going to use the last port on my router. How do I add more ethernet ports? I have an old wired router around here somewhere, if it's possible to configure it to work as a hub.

But a switch. Plug the switch into the router and computers and other devices into the switch.  An 8 port switch will add six ports to your system.  You can put a switch on each router  port and you can even nest them,  but don't go too deep if you can help it.  You will also need an extra Cat5/6/7 to connect the switch to the router.
