WHAT IS INVOLVED IN SETTING UP SECURITY CAMERAS

The following steps show to set up security cameras in the home

SETTING UP

In this case, you have to first plot out the location and arrangement of each camera to be used to avoid interference from other sources. Although the four corners of the house cannot be fully monitored because it is expensive and impractical, placing priority on places that are to be monitored most is the best option in this scenario. Have a cctv security camera installer look it over.

These places usually require more cameras, a maximum of two if it is a large room. The places in a house that usually require security cameras are the front and back doors, stairways, driveways, porches, and off-street windows. Buying the camera package that suits your setting should be the next thing in mind as a basic security system comes with a DVR, appropriate wiring, power cords, and 1-3 cameras. Test the surveillance system before installing it to confirm if it is working.

INSTALLATION

It has been shown from research that the best position to place a security camera is from the corner of the room, where the ceiling meets the walls, looking down. Placing the camera at 10-ft above the ground is the safest place to mount the camera outside.

The camera can be mounted with sticky pads (not all cameras have sticky pads) or with screws. Screws are the best option if the cameras are to be mounted for a long time. After screwing the cameras, connect them to the DVR and the power source (if the surveillance system is wired). While plugging to the DVR, use only a BNC (Bayonet Neill- Concelman) connection cable.

This is a simple cable to use and has identical heads on both sides which are to be connected to the appropriate ports. Connect the DVR to your computer or monitor using a BNC cable, coaxial cables, or HDMI cable, attaching one end to the DVR at its “Output” port and the other end to the monitor at its “Input” port. You can plug as much as you choose, as long as your DVR can accommodate them, keeping in mind the port which each camera is plugged to. After every connection, do well to hide every wire to make the system look more professional.

FINALIZING THE CONNECTIONS
