3 Find the correct location for you Cameras It is important to find the correct location. Identify what you want to see when you are away from home on business or if you want to be able to watch your front door from your bedroom, or if this is really a ‘just in case’ situation. Walk around your home a few times and think like a criminal. Take note of the lighting around your house. CCTV cameras require a good amount of light to capture crisp, clear usable images. IF there is not enough light, this will require a different camera, more on this later. Also try to avoid aiming cameras at trees or shrubs, as the constant motion of leaves blowing in the wind will drastically reduce your recording time on your camera system. Not only will this process open your eyes, it will most likely give you insight into what exactly you want to see and record on your Digital Video Recorder.

The next step is to poke around in your attic and basement or crawlspace. Throw on some overalls, grab a flashlight and get to it, but be careful, we are not responsible if you get bit by a spider or fall through the ceiling or if your wife locks you in the attic. All the wiring in your home security system will have to run through the attic or basement of your home. While you are up there, pay close attention to the structure in the areas where you think you want to install your cameras, also take a close look at the area above the room where your DVR recorder will be installed. Ask yourself the following questions: -If I step on that, will I fall through the ceiling into my kitchen? (this one is especially important!) -How much room is there to run a wire and connector for each security camera? -Are there any power lines nearby that may cause interference with my camera’s video quality? -Is there a chase, or opening where I can run a bundle of wires inside an interior wall to my DVR?

3D View of Cameras

3.1 Cabling for your cameras There should now be a plan starting to form in your head. Each camera will need one wire that will go from the camera to the recorder. So look to see where in your attic that wire will run. Make sure to avoid going close to power lines or fluorescent lights, as this could cause lines, interference or ground looping in your video signal. In general, wire can be laid down in the attic on top of the insulation, though you may want to tack up your wire to the trusses for a neater looking installation. If you do this, remember, this will increase the amount of wire you will need to run to each camera by a large amount. Also remember not to use standard staples, use an insulated staple or clip so you don’t damage the wire accidentally. Plug and Play, or PnP cable offers the convenience of not having to make any connections since it comes with its own connectors and is, just like it sounds, a plug and play affair with your camera and DVR system. It’s thinner, more flexible and comes in 25 foot, 50 foot, 75 foot, 100 foot and 150 foot increments. Plug and Play CCTV Cables are very fragile, so they require a gentle hand during installation. The connectors on PnP cables are preinstalled, so your hole for your wire will need to be bigger than the wire itself. Note: Important to remember when doing the cabling: The connectors on the two ends of the cable are not the same

3.2 Camera Placement. Traditionally, home CCTV cameras are placed in a high location like a ceiling or an eve in order to avoid vandalism. Occasionally you may find the need to place a camera lower on a building like a wall. Keep this in mind as you will need to choose a camera with a rotational base, a 3 axis gimbal and should seriously consider a vandalproof camera like some of our armor domes. For outdoor cameras, we highly recommend placing cameras on the bottom side of the eve, this provides a clear path to run wire into the attic, without leaving it exposed. For indoor cameras, we generally recommend mounting dome cameras directly to the drywall ceiling or drop-ceiling tiles.

Camera Placement Diagram

3.3 Lighting Decisions. If you have areas of low light, you should consider using an infrared nightvision camera (Indoor Dome supplied in the DIY kit do have IR). Infrared cameras will switch to black and white when the lighting gets low enough and the built-in infrared LED lights will glow red at night, providing the camera with light that the human eye cannot see, but the camera can.

3.4 Indoor Cameras. Some people are not comfortable having indoor cameras in their homes. Today’s higher end home CCTV systems are incredibly difficult to hack into, so privacy is really not something to be worried about. That being said, everybody has their own preferences.

4 Install Cabling 4.1 Getting Dirty: Wiring ing your home security cameras the the right way.

The cable connecting to the camera, will have a BNC MALE connector, and a DC Male connector. The cable connecting to the DVR, will have a BNC Male connector, and a DC Female connector. Take a look around and now that you have cable in hand, measure to make sure it will all fit down the chase to your DVR. Start the actual installation by drilling holes directly behind where you are going to mount your cameras to your home. Make sure to make the hole big enough to fit your connectors through them, but not so large that it allows for small woodland creatures tures to crawl into your attic. Lay your cable inside the house by the chosen DVR location. Once there, you can feed the wire up the interior wall. If the wall has a header board, you may have to drill a hole in the header board and feed the wire down to the DVR instead. Run each wire, one at a time, through the path you created earlier and lay the end close to the hole you drilled for camera mounting Follow this process for each camera, until they are all wired into the DVR location and out to the camera location. Do not tack up any wires until you know your cables are good a little later on in this install. Remember to be extra careful when pulling on pre-made made plug and play cables. You may find it useful to keep an extra wire clothes hanger around in case you need to fish any wire out of tight spots in the wall.
