How to Install Security Camera

For security there is really no better way than video surveillance to deter theft or property damage at your home and/or business. Security cameras provide you with a way to monitor and record activity on your property and the surrounding areas as well as letting people know you’re serious about home security. With a DVR(4/8/16CH Network DVR), you can record and store several days’ worth of surveillance video from your security camera system for later review or permanent recording. You can set up your own security system by following these simple steps.
Selecting security camera positions:
Walking out the locations of security cameras around your property, including the path that the coaxial cables will take through your home or business from the security cameras to the DVR, power cables and power sources. Running cables through an attic, crawlspace or beneath siding will minimize the need to open up your walls. If you don’t want to bother installing cable, you can install wireless security cameras that only require wiring for power.
Drill holes for the cables:
Whether you’re installing security cameras on an  wall or under your eaves, you may need to drill through materials like brick, concrete, siding and plywood to pass the  coaxial cable( GR59 75-3/75-4/75-5) through. You may also need holes in the ceiling or wall where the cables will meet your DVR. Always check the location of plumbing and electrical wiring before drilling. Your security cameras will get the power they need from the power leads included with your Siamese cable which will connect to a power box or power adapter(s). Run cables through the holes and leave enough slack for them to connect to the security camera. Label the ends of the cables so that you know which security camera goes with which cable.
Attach the mounting bracket(BS-20):
Depending on the size and weight of your security cameras, you may either want to mount them on siding or drill through to sturdier materials, such as wall studs. Box cameras require a housing and bracket for install. Each security camera is different, so follow the mounting instructions precisely.
Connect the cables and mount the cameras:
Connect the coaxial and power cables to each security camera according to the instructions. Security cameras may screw onto the bracket or simply twist on to attach firmly to the mount.
Most CCTV cameras come with mounting screws and bracket. Attach the bracket firmly. Fasten the camera to the bracket and adjust camera position.
A typical camera is powered by 12v DC or 24v AC. Power connections will differ per type of power supply and input supply, so observe polarity rather than risk destroying the camera. Red or white cables are for positive while black is for negative terminals.
Hook up the connector and repeat steps for each camera.
Connect the cables to the DVR:
Attach the labeled coaxial cables from the security cameras to the desired ports on your DVR. You can then connect the DVR to a monitor for direct viewing from the DVR.  Additionally, you can connect most DVRs to your Internet Router and access the DVR from any Internet PC or smartphone across your network or remote internet connection.

Monitor and recorder connection
You have to install connectors on this side. Make room for the monitor and recorder so that you can determine the power supply location.
Power supply should be mounted near the DVR video inputs. Separate the power conductors from the Siamese cable and run it to the power supply. Watch the polarity as you did with the cameras. Do not plug the power supply into the power outlet yet.
Connect the DVR to the monitor. Protect the equipment from power spikes with a voltage regulator. Make sure you have a back-up in case of power outage.
Power on and final adjustments
Turn on your cameras, then your monitors, and finally your DV recorder. Go over each camera's view and adjust camera position accordingly.
Test the security cameras:
Test to make sure that each security camera is recording properly. Also now is a good time to test the line-of-sight for each of your security cameras and make adjustments as necessary.
A good CCTV system defines the area's level of security. It provides evidence in catching the culprits red-handed. They provide a sense of safety to an area, in that persons who know that their actions are being watched will avoid a deed that might incriminate them.
