The best angle of any room is usually looking down from the corner where the ceiling meets the walls. Make sure you can clearly see all entries and exits and that the camera is near a power outlet.
If you are mounting a camera outside, place it above 10ft so that it cannot be easily knocked down.
Some cameras come with sticky pads to adhere your camera to the wall, but screwing your camera in is the safest way to mount your cameras long-term. While every camera is different, most of them can be mounted the same way.
3.Attach your camera to a power source.
Almost all cameras come with a power adaptor that plugs into a normal wall socket. Plug the small, round end into the power input on the back of the camera and plug the other end into the outlet.
If your power adaptor is missing or broken, contact your manufacturer.
4.Attach wired camera to your DVR.
Surveillance equipment is connected using a BNC (Bayonet Neill–Concelman) connection. BNC cables are simple to use — they are identical on both sides and you simply plug them into the appropriate port, turning a small nut on the end to lock it in place. Plug one end into your camera’s “Output” and the other into one of the DVR “Input” ports.
5.Link wireless cameras to your computer.
Wireless cameras will come with a software disc that you need to install to view your feeds. Follow the on-screen instructions to access your cameras.
6.Attach the monitor to the DVR.
This connection frequently uses a BNC cable as well, but some DVR’s can attach with HDMI cables, or coaxial cables. Using your preferred connection, attach one end to the DVR’s “Output” port and the other to the monitor’s “Input.”
7.Troubleshoot any connection issues.
Check that the camera, DVR, and monitor are all hooked up to a power supply and turned on. Make sure your cables are securely attached and that you have selected the right inputs for your DVR and monitor. Some monitors will display every camera at the same time, others have “input” buttons that allow you to switch between cameras.
