Installation of a Security Camera System
At first glance the installation of a security camera system is a daunting task. In reality when broken down into the key parts it’s actually a pretty straight forward thing for anyone to accomplish. If you have a moderate DIY ability then you can install your security camera system.
The exact tools required to install our security camera systems are in almost all tool kits!
Recorders – Installation
These do not require any special tools
Cameras – Installation
The basics to mount a camera are a drill and screwdriver (any hex keys required are included).
Cables – Installation
This is the part that most people are concerned about. Fear not – not only do we have a great wiring guide to ensure you get it right, we are also available on the phone or e-mail to help as needed.
The type of cable we use here at Orange Security is CAT5e wiring with video baluns. The tools required are wire cutters and a small screwdriver. If you have a wire stripping tool then it can be used however wire cutters are usually sufficient. Check out our wiring guide for this method here.
Do you do Installation?
Here at Orange Security we don’t currently operate an installation team as there is no need! Everything we sell has been designed to be as easy as possible to self install for someone reasonably competent at DIY – remember that we are here to support you at every step of the way. If you follow our simple guides, no specialist skills are required.
If you are concerned that you are not up to the task we recommend hiring a local trusted electrical contractor. If they have never installed security cameras before, we can work closely with them explaining every step of the process.
If at any point you or your help is concerned about any step of the installation, pick up the phone, or send us a message and we will help.
