Investing in security camera installation is one of the best ways to protect your home or business. However, if the cameras aren’t installed correctly, you may miss out on valuable security footage when you need it most. Proper installation is crucial for ensuring your cameras function optimally and provide a clear view of all the important areas.

At RapidTec, we have extensive experience with security camera installation for residential and commercial properties. Our team of professionals follows all best practices during installation to guarantee our clients get the most out of their camera systems.

    1. Plan camera locations carefully. Before security camera installation, walk through the property and identify the areas you want covered by cameras, taking into account potential blind spots. Strategic placement is key.
    2. Mount cameras securely. Cameras should be installed on solid surfaces and at optimal heights for the desired viewing angles. Proper mounting helps prevent issues like obstructed views or vulnerability to tampering.
    3. Ensure adequate lighting. Most cameras don’t record great footage in very low lighting conditions. Make sure camera locations have sufficient lighting, including for night vision cameras.
    4. Use weather-resistant cameras outdoors. For outdoor cameras, it’s critical to use weatherproof camera housings rated for your climate to prevent damage from the elements.
    5.  Connect to a secure network. Whether transmitting footage wirelessly or over cables, make sure your camera system has a secure connection to your network to prevent unauthorized access.
    6. Set up remote access. One of the major benefits of modern security cameras is the ability to view footage remotely. Properly configuring remote access gives you real-time monitoring capabilities.
    The professional installation team at RapidTec follows all these guidelines and more when doing security camera installation. We work with top camera manufacturers and use proven techniques honed through years of experience.
