The Ultimate Guide To Wireless CCTV Installation Process: Can You Fix It Yourself?

The Wireless CCTV Installation process today is not a daunting task. It is simple and doesn’t even require technical skills or the presence of a technician. Now, wait! Before you get your toolkits to drill holes and wire your devices, let us remind you that such steps wouldn’t be extensively necessary as well.

Wireless CCTV Cameras Installation Guide:

Essential Factors To Consider

Quick Steps

  • Understanding The Basics
  • Choose The Right Height And Angle
  • Use WiFi Extenders If Required
  • Configuring Your WiFi Connection
  • App And Cloud Configuration

1. Understanding The Basics

There are a lot of misconceptions about wireless cameras. At first instance, people generally tend to understand that wireless CCTV camera are devoid of any cables. While this is true, it’s only partially true. 

Wireless cameras

are called so because they don’t need wires or cables to transmit footage or data to a physical DVR. Unlike conventional CCTV cameras, there is no need to run cables through the length and breadth of your premises to ensure your camera seamlessly transmits footage to your DVRs and then monitors. 

They connect to your WiFi networks and use cloud technology to beam footage across distances. So, to turn your wireless camera on and ensure it is up and running all the time, it still needs a wired power source. 

 At this point, you should also ensure two things:
  • The power source should be on 24/7.
  • The location of the power source where you intend to place your wireless camera should not have a weak connectivity reception.

So, now, after assessing all the individual needs of cameras in your network, repeat the process for the entire perimeter of your space. 

2. Choose The Right Height And Angle

The next crucial step that ensures your CCTV camera is set up for optimized angle and performance is to select the ideal height and angle for its placement. Make a note of the following points:

  • The camera should not be placed too low so that it could be easily seen or tampered with during instances such as break-ins or fire hazards. 
  • At the same time, it should not be too high that the camera fails to pick up details from your environment. 
  • As far as the angle of your wireless CCTV camera is concerned, title it for maximum coverage. Ideally, corners and brighter vantage points are recommended. If it’s a fisheye camera, the widest corner would be good as it has a wider coverage than conventional lenses.

3. Use WiFi Extenders If Required

Not all CCTV cameras could be placed at the ideal spots. Some might require Wireless CCTV Installation at places more remote than the rest. It could be in a parking space, near elevators, corners of a workplace, secluded spaces like a garage, and more. 

In such spaces, wireless connectivity generally tends to become weaker. And because the only mode of data transmission and communication wireless CCTV cameras rely on is WiFi, you should ensure WiFi is at optimum standards at all times. 

That’s why we recommend deploying WiFi extenders at the right places to boost wireless signals for cameras to utilize and seamlessly send back footage. Wireless extenders are easily available in marketplaces and retail stores. 

Or, if you want to save yourself from such hassles, you could get 4G CCTV cameras from VMukti. These come with cellular connectivity and can be placed anywhere regardless of the strength of your WiFi network. 

4. Configuring Your WiFi Connection

At the time of your CCTV installation, be ready with all the details you need to configure your WiFi to work with your new security camera.

5. App And Cloud Configuration

The final two steps to ensure a smooth Wireless CCTV Installation is configuring the cloud and the dedicated app.
