Posted by Geeksqquad933 on March 16th, 2020
The notion of drilling holes from end to end of the walls of your house in order to run videos and power-cables for a system of security camera can seem to be daunting, but a lot of security systems are incomplete packages, which make setting-up your surveillance system easier. Read down to get the guidance on the purchase and installation of your personal home-camera system, and if you have any confusion about the process, simply get the best Geek Squad Phone Number with us.
PREPARING YOUR HOME
Draw a diagram for your surveillance needs-
It is expensive as well as inefficient to keep an eye on each and every square inch of your house; therefore, you have to prioritize the areas that you need to monitor the most. Our Geek Squad Tech Support suggests you to make a rough diagram or draft of your house or get the blueprints printed out and decide where you would want to keep cameras.
You may want cameras for:
At a minimum, your home-camera system should have 1 to 3 cameras, a DVR (abbreviated as digital video recorder), suitable wiring (BNC and siamese cables), plus power cords.
Basic Home Security: Get you a package having 2 or 3 outdoor cameras (to observe doors), and a DVR having at least three days of record time.
Monitoring Valuables or Young Children: 1 to3 indoor plus wireless cameras can easily cover a small room and effectively stream the videotape to your computer.

INSTALLATION OF A CAMERA
Choose a high and broad-angle for your camera-
The best angle for any room is generally watching down from the corner in which the ceiling intersects the walls. Make sure that you can see all entries as well as exits clearly, and the camera is close to a power outlet.
If you’re mounting the camera outside, then keep it above 10 ft.with the purpose that it can’t be knocked down easily. If during the process, you face any problem or your camera doesn’t support being mounted, call us to get the prompt Geek Squad Tech Support.
Mount your camera to the wall-
“Some of the cameras come with adhesive pads to stick your camera to the wall, yet attaching your camera in with the help of screws is the safest method to mount the cameras for long term”, according to Geek Squad Tech Support.
Attach your camera to a power source-
Almost every camera comes with a power adapter, which plugs into a usual wall socket. Plug the round, small end into the power supply input on the back side of the camera and then plug the different end into the outlet.
In case your power adapter is broken or missing, contact your manufacturer or just reach your reliable Geek Squad Tech Support.
Connect a wired camera with your DVR-
The surveillance equipment gets connected with a BNC abbreviated as Bayonet Neill–Concelmanconnection. The BNC cables are very simple in usage; they are similar on both of the sides and you just plug them into the correct port, turning on a small nut at the end to make it stay in place. Plug one of the ends of it into the "Output” of your camera and the other one into any of the "Input" ports of DVR. For more information about it, contact our experts at Geek Squad Tech Support.
Join the wireless cameras to your computer-
Wireless cameras come with one software disc, which you have to install for viewing your feeds. Follow these on-screen instructions to get access to your cameras.
Some of the cameras possess a small receiver, which connects to your PCvia a USB port. Make sure that this should be properly attached. If still, you’re getting any problem, call us and get our best Geek Squad Tech Support.
Attach the monitor to the DVR-
Using your desired connection, connect one end to the "Output" port of DVR and the other end to the “Input” of the monitor.
Troubleshoot any connection issues-
Check that the DVR, cameras and monitor are all connected to a power supply and switched on. Make sure that your cables are attached securely and you have chosen the correct inputs for your monitor and DVR. Some of the monitors will display each camera at one time, and the others possess "input" buttons which allow switching between the cameras.
