Ensure that the cameras are at the right location. c. Make sure that you can find a proper point of entrance from the outside of the house to the inside. d.

Here below let’s come to the detailed description of the points that plays an important role in CCTV security system installation in home.
1. Make sure you have choose the right cables. Maybe the RG59 Siamese Cable is a good choice, it is the industry standard type of cable used for most CCTV installs and this cable consists of one video cable and one power cable (Positive and Negative). And please be noted that you would better make the cables to be run through basements, attics, walls or any protected area from which they can operate undisturbed, and also it’s best to allow extra length between cameras and the DVR to allow for future adjustment.
2. The place the camera (we FiberStore.com can also provide this product though you can only find the CCTV security camera tester not the camera on our website at present) placement should be right. The camera placement is really vital in reaping the benefits of security video, the cameras should be installed where they can best monitor the most important parts of an area. In most occasions, the homes cameras are installed where the roof meets the walls of the house. This is a good location because it shelters the cameras from the elements (Rain, snow, wind and sun). And it make the cables connect more simplified since many homes have a small gap or hole where cables can be run between the roof and the wall. The third advantage is that the cameras placed near the roof usually have a better field of view and are less likely to be vandalized.
