Introduction to CCTV Camera
CCTV cameras, also known as closed-circuit television cameras are used for surveillance
purposes and can be found in a variety of settings such as businesses, homes and public
spaces. Cameras transmit video
footage to a device rather than being broadcast to the public, hence the term “closed-circuit.”
CCTV cameras
can provide a sense of security and can be used to monitor activity, deter crime, and even
assist in
investigations. With advances in technology, CCTV cameras have become more affordable
and easier to install, making them accessible to a wider range of users.

field of view.
Surveying and installing a CCTV camera is an important step in the installation process, as it
helps to ensure that the camera is placed in the optimal location for surveillance.
Here are some key considerations to keep in mind when surveying and installing a CCTV
camera:
 Field of View:
Determine the areas that you want the camera to cover, and look for a location that provides a
good field of view of those areas. This might involve considering factors such as the camera’s
angle of view, the height of the camera, and any potential obstructions.
 Lighting:
Consider the lighting conditions in the area where the camera will be installed. Is there
enough light for the camera to capture clear images, or will additional lighting be necessary?
 Power and Data:
Identify the location of the nearest power outlet and data connection, as these will be needed
to power and operate the camera.
 Security:
Look for a location that is secure and will not be easily tampered with or vandalized.
By conducting a thorough survey before installing a CCTV camera, you can ensure that the
camera is placed in the best possible location for effective surveillance.
2. Cable Laying:
Cable laying is the process of installing the cables that will connect a CCTV camera to a
monitoring or recording system. This is a crucial step in the installation of a CCTV camera as
the quality and reliability of the camera’s connection will depend on the proper installation of
the cables.
There are a few key considerations to keep in mind when cable lying for a CCTV camera:
Route Selection:
Choose a route for the cables that are out of sight and will not be disturbed by people or

Check both of these to ensure they are functioning properly. 5. Camera not detecting motion: If you have set up motion detection but the camera is not detecting any movement, try adjusting the sensitivity settings.
