Do I Need STP Cable For This Project?

I just had a customer contact me to install a bunch of cameras and he had his own employees run shielded cat6. I feel it is overkill to have run this for cameras but I don't think he knew it.

I have never used or terminated shielded wire.

I dont have any problem with properly terminating these runs like I see on youtube but I am just curious if there is any harm caused by not using the metal rj45 connectors, and then with also not grounding the poe switch that it is run to. I know it defeats the purpose of it being shielded, but when it increases his cost both in time and equipment....
