Top CCTV Installation related questions
Here’s what you’ll need to prep before you install your CCTV:
- The perfect spot for your CCTV to capture your property while staying hidden (or visible enough to scare away intruders)
- Power supply
- Cables, wires, and connectors
- Video splitters and amplifiers
While you can prepare these things yourself, it’s always good to consult with a CCTV specialist. Request an appointment by posting a task today!
First, ask what kind of CCTV’s are available and what they’re best used for. Dome cameras, for example, have extensive coverage and some have night vision, while infrared cameras are best for monitoring outdoor areas at night. You’ll also want to ask about the ideal internet speed for your cameras. Next, find out how temperature can affect the cameras and their placement. Finally, check if the CCTV’s can operate on low power or batteries in case of an outage.
If you’d like to review your home’s CCTV footage, it’s best to check the owner’s manual or website. There may be proprietary software or applications that you’ll need to use, depending on the model you purchased. When having your home CCTV installation done, it’s best to ask the specialist about retrieving and viewing the footage. To get help right away, request a Tasker near you.

What does a CCTV installation service include?
Our CCTV installation specialists can do more than just install your CCTV cameras; they can recommend ideal locations and even show you how to use these devices. While the specifics can vary from Tasker to Tasker, here’s what you can expect when you request this service on Airtasker:
Tools and equipment for CCTV installation
Taskers arrive with the complete set of tools necessary for CCTV camera installation. This includes screws, anchors, cables, a drill, and a power adapter or receiver. Some easy to install CCTV models include installation materials in the box, so be sure to tell your Tasker what kind of CCTV you’ve purchased. This helps them prepare the right tools before your appointment.
Choosing the best locations for your CCTV cameras
You’ll need to consider several things when choosing spots for your CCTV cameras, and your Tasker can help you do this. Pick high locations that can capture wider angles. These won’t be easily accessible to intruders who’ll try to disable it. Next, avoid pointing the cameras at a light source or placing them below windows since these can affect the exposure. It’s also good to place them under an eave and near a power supply, especially in the case of exposed outdoor cameras.
It’s also important to remember that you shouldn’t install CCTV systems in bathrooms, other people’s properties, or places where people can expect reasonable privacy.
Wiring and mounting CCTV cameras
This bit is where a Tasker comes in handy. First, they’ll plan the wire route for your cameras. A good wiring plan helps protect the cables from wear and tear and prevents intruders from disabling the cameras (without spoiling the look of your property). Once they’ve plotted out where all the cables will go and where the monitor will be placed, they’ll drill the holes and run the wires. Afterwards, the CCTV installer takes care of the assembly and mounting of cameras to your chosen spots.
After everything is set up, it’s time to test your home security system. The Tasker checks to see if each camera is working and if the images are of good quality. They’ll also check if the back-up batteries or generator work, so that your cameras will function even in a power outage or if an intruder tries to cut the power supply. Once you and the Tasker are satisfied with the system, they’ll conceal all the holes and cables. And you’re all set up!
CCTV installation is just one of the many things that you can get done at Airtasker. If you’re in full-on security and safety mode, our Taskers can help you with other measures like dashcam installation and babyproofing.
