I have to install IP cameras in an elevator. Currently there is only 4 pair 18AWG wire available for me in the elevator shaft. I have Cat 6 running from my switch to the elevator main hub which is where the 18Awg wire terminates. Any suggestion on how I can terminate this?

You need to convert the 4-pair into a patch cable. In other words take a 3 foot ethernet patch cable, cut it in half, and wire your travelling cable into the middle. Keep the same colors matching at both ends, and keep each pair continuous. If the cable has twisted pairs it helps, but I have used straight fire alarm wires OK.
