Mounting the Camera

The camera can be mounted onto a flat vertical or horizontal surface and must be of sufficient strength to hold the camera.Swann Indoor-Outdoor Surveillance Security Camera-FIG 3

  • Hold the dome enclosure (1) and the dome ring (2) then rotate the mounting bracket (3) clockwise to remove it from the camera.
  • Position the camera bracket (4) in the location you want to mount it and mark the mounting holes on the surface to position the screws (a mounting template has been included).
  • Using the appropriate screws for the surface you are mounting to, secure the bracket in place.
  • Run the cable then place the camera into the dome enclosure and dome ring and aim the camera to the desired position. The camera can be rotated left or right or up and down. Check the image on your DVR and make adjustments as necessary.
  • After you’ve finished adjusting the viewing position, rotate the dome ring to the mounting bracket counterclockwise to lock the position in place.

Camera Location Tips

  1. Take into consideration what you want to monitor and where you’ll get the best view of it.
  2. How you’re going to connect the camera to your monitoring system; remember that cables and connections should be kept out of the weather.
  3. How to keep the camera out of harm’s way. It’s recommended to mount your camera at an elevated position.
  4. Place your camera as close to the area of interest as practicable. The best position is from about 13 ft/4 m above looking slightly down, keeping in mind the details you are looking for.
  5. Although the sky looks nice when you look at the live view from your camera, it is an unlikely direction for an offender to approach. Make sure your camera has minimal sky in it as the light in daylight can make the foreground of the image darker.
  6. Think about the most likely way a potential offender may approach your home, and use your camera to give you the best coverage of these areas.
  7. The camera’s casing is resistant to different weather conditions and tampering. It would take an overwhelming event to damage the housing.
  8. Even though the camera is weather and water- and water-resistant, prolonged exposure to adverse weather conditions such as sunlight or excessive moisture, may eventually damage the internal components of the camera and adversely affect its performance.
  9. Run cables inside a wall cavity or other protected enclosure, and ensure that all wiring and connectors are insulated and protected from moisture.
  10. Don’t put your cable near live electrical wiring. AC electricity generates radio “noise” which can interfere with the signal from your camera.
