1.Planning before installing a CCTV camera

The most important aspect of installing a CCTV camera system is choosing the right spots for the camera and DVR to maximize camera coverage and minimize cable length (which in-turn reduces the in-line losses that affect video quality). For indoors, choose a corner in the room from where most entry points into the room are visible. A power socket should also be in close proximity. For outdoors, choose a higher spot covering the door, window approaches, garages, etc. Choose the spots above 10ft so that it cannot be knocked down easily.

Slide the crimping barrel onto the cable with a wider diameter facing towards the end of the cable. Now remove the white insulator covering the innermost cable. Now insert these exposed cables into the BNC port and screw the crimping barrel. This makes a secure connection. Connect the DVR output port to the screen on which you want the video feed.
