Security cameras play a vital role in home security. Therefore, the first step to security camera installation is planning where you will place your cameras.
Usually, a security camera is placed at entry doors, off-street windows, and porches. It is also important that your camera has a clear line of sight.
Outdoor cameras are a lot more durable than indoor cameras. However, we recommend that you place your cameras carefully to protect the camera from harsh weather conditions.
Wireless Security Cameras: Pros And Cons
Wireless security cameras are great for protecting your home. However though they may save you the cost of drilling, the camera will need to be near the receiver. If the camera remains far from the receiver, it may affect the image quality.
Installing the Camera Mount
The first step is installing the camera mount. According to the mounting template, you will need to drill pilot holes for the mounting screws. Once you are done, use a hammer to install the mounting pins into the wall before screwing the camera mount firmly into the wall.
Installing The Camera
Now, it’s time to install the camera. If your camera requires batteries, now is the time to insert them. Once the camera is powered, secure it onto the mount, and adjust it to your desired angle.
A wireless camera usually comes with software that you install to access the camera’s remote feed. All you need is to install the software and follow the instructions.
Installing a wireless camera is much simpler than installing a wired camera. A wired camera is much more difficult to install because it requires a lot more drilling and cable running than a wireless camera. Hence it is best to call a professional who can install the wired camera appropriately.
