Installing the camera is the next major step in which choosing a high, broad angle is chosen. The location in which the ceiling meets the wall is the best angle for the camera. The camera needs to be mounted on a wall in which the mount is first placed on the desired location, then using a sharpie, marks are made on the wall to where the screws go. Its then followed through by drilling a hole using an electric drill, then hammering molding pins, screwing the mount into the wall and finally positioning the camera to the desired angle.
The camera is then connected to a power source after mounting on it on the wall. Connection into a power source is through plugging directly to the wall socket. After successful connection of the power source a wired camera is then attached to the digital video recorder. Feeds are viewed after linking the wireless cameras to the computer.
