Camera Location Tips
B
Confused on which location to install your cameras? The cameras included with your security
system can be installed in a number of different locations. Camera location can depend on the
following -
Front of House and Driveway
To monitor the front of the house, whether it is the front garden, driveway or the entrance to
your garage, it is recommended to install the camera where the roof meets the walls of the
house, as illustrated below. This will shelter the camera from the elements, have a better field
of view, and less likely to be vandalized.

ing device.
snow.
night.
Install the camera
where the roof
meets the walls
of the house.
When you position cameras correctly, you can eliminate the need for additional cameras to cover
your target area and maximise the efficiency of your security system. On the flip side, if you position cameras incorrectly, it can lead to blind spots or to have objects that are not visible or too far
for the cameras to view in detail. Keep these points in mind to get the most out of your security
system.
Mount cameras at an elevated position - Mounting your cameras at an elevated position, can keep
your cameras out of range of vandals or would be burglars. It also allows your camera to have a
high vantage point increasing its viewing area.

& Recorder device first before installing the cameras
permanently.
D
Front Door
It has been found that most burglars will enter your home through the front door, so it is very
important that you install a camera here. It is recommended to install the camera either above
the door or to the side space permitting. Mount the camera in an elevated position so it is out of
range of vandals or would be burglars. Placing the camera at a slight angle will allow you to see
who is approaching your front door as well as giving you the ability to have facial recognition.

& Recorder device first before installing the cameras

G
It’s recommended that you place cameras inside the house that have high traffic areas such as
entry and exit points (front door), hallways and staircases (if applicable). Other ideal locations
are next to windows and rooms that have high priced valuables such as electronics, antiques
and jewellery.
This will focus on the
side entrance.

Camera Cables
When installing cameras outside, it is recommended to install the provided data & power cable
away from the elements so it prevents them from deteriorating over time. Whilst cabling, avoid
areas that have a high amount of electrical equipment where electrical interference is expected.
This can create all types of interference to the video picture. Also avoid sharp bends, which can
affect cable impedance and cause interference to the video picture. If you’re using cable ties,
do not over tighten them and avoid using a staple gun to secure as this can potentially damage
the cable. There may be circumstances where you have to join multpiple cables together. Go
to your hardware store, purchase some electrical tape and use this to seal the connection(s)
between each cable. This will prevent moisture and dust forming on the connection(s).
Summary
1. Protect the cable from the elements to avoid deterioration.
2. Avoid electrical equipment where electrical interefence is expected.
3. Avoid sharp bends and do not bend the cable greater than 90 degrees.
4. Do not overtighten when using cable ties.
5. Avoid using a staple gun to secure the cable to a wall.
6. Do not stretch or apply force greater than 25lbs/11kgs.
7. Use electrical tape to seal the connection(s) when joining multiple cables together.
Environment
• Make sure the power connections are not directly exposed to water or moisture and shielded
from other outdoor elements.
• Weatherproof only means that the camera can be exposed to weather such as rain and snow.
Weatherproof cameras cannot be submerged under water.
• Do not expose the camera where rain and snow will hit the lens directly.
• Cameras geared for cold weather may work in extreme conditions as low as -25° as the
camera produces heat when plugged in.

Lighting & Environment Tips
Lighting
• For best results do not point the camera towards a light source.
• Pointing the camera towards a glass window intending to see outside may result in a poor
image because of glare and lighting conditions inside and outside.
• Don’t place the camera in a shaded area that is looking into a well lit area as this will result
in a poor display. The light to the sensor located at the front of the camera needs to be the
same as the light at the focal target for best results.
• As the camera uses infrared LEDs to see at night, it’s recommended to clean the lens from
time to time if the picture degrades.
The Field of View produced by a camera is the area that the camera can see. It is an important
factor to consider as it determines not just what the camera can see, but also the level of detail
that is visible at a given distance. Cameras with a smaller lens, also known as a wide-angle
lens, produce a greater Field of View than cameras with a larger lens. This means that the
camera can see a large area but the objects will appear smaller within the scene area. This is
useful if you want to monitor an entire room or a yard. Cameras with a larger lens also known
as narrow-angle have a smaller Field of View. They can see a limited area, but objects will
appear larger within the scene area. This is useful if you want to monitor a specific target such
as a doorway or entrance.

Camera Field of View
Fixed Lens vs. Varifocal Lens
A Fixed Lens is where the camera’s focal
length (Field of View) is permanently set
and cannot be adjusted by the user.
A Varifocal Lens is where the camera’s
lens can be manually adjusted by the
user. This allows for greater flexibility
to optimize the camera picture for your
specific needs.

Backyard and Side Entrance
Most burglars will knock on the front
door first to see if anyone is at home.

Your backyard is mostly filled with a shed with lawn and garden tools, recreational equipment
and children’s toys. It’s a good idea to install a camera so that you have an entire overview of the
backyard. Like the cameras installed at the front of the house, it is recommended to install the
camera where the roof meets the wall of the house. If you have a side gate or more than one
entrance to the backyard, you may want to have an additional camera that is focused to that
area.
Place the camera at a slight angle.
Have a look at the image(s) on the Digital Monitor
& Recorder device first before installing the cameras
permanently.
This
camera
will focus on the
driveway entrance.
You may need to install multiple cameras if
you want to focus on specific areas that you
would like to monitor, for example, one for the
driveway, the other on the garage entrance.
Cover your target area - When placing cameras, make sure you provide ample coverage, but not
in excess. For example, if you are trying to cover a backyard gate, don’t zoom in to only have the
gate in frame. Position the camera to cover part of your backyard so you capture as much area as
possible without sacrificing video quality.
