  • Security camera
  • Decide where you want to position the camera and drill holes to mount the bracket.

  • Drill a hole through the wall for the camera wire.

  • Attach the mounting bracket.

  • Attach wires to the camera.

  • Feed the security camera wire through the wall.

  • Attach the camera to the mounting bracket.

  • Position the camera so that it faces the proper area.

Tips & Warnings

  • Trees and shrubs near your home give burglars a place to hide and can also obstruct the camera's view. You may want to consider different landscaping or moving large obstacles away from doorways and windows.
  • If your home security camera doesn't work, recheck your wire attachments. A loose wire is often the only problem.
