Security Camera Installation
Security camera systems may be marketed by retail stores as easy DIY or “do it yourself” installations. However, security camera installation can be a hazardous job for individuals who have little experience handling advanced security equipment and electrical components. Many security camera installations require two or more individuals working in dangerous conditions, at great heights, and in varying indoor and outdoor temperatures.
When drilling through walls and working around live wires, electrocution is always a possibility. Security camera installation also requires camera lens and angle knowledge to get the best field of view. Security cameras should be installed by licensed and insured technicians to avoid risks of personal harm and property damage. To make sure your security camera installation is completed safely and properly, consult with our experts at Electrical Synergies.
Choosing Your Security Camera System
Electrical Synergies’ professional security camera installation services vary depending on a customer’s specific personal and professional needs. Standard security camera systems can be crafted to include:
- Alarm systems
- Access control systems
- CCTV installation
- Nest camera installation
- Ring camera installation
- Advanced video surveillance
During an initial inspection and consultation, we discuss all security-related concerns and recommend several options for security equipment. Our installers then create, design, and produce an estimate of the surveillance camera installation that best meets your budget and needs.
After an initial consultation, we discuss the installation process and agree on a timeline for work to be completed. Our team of experts at Electrical Synergies will ensure your installation is completed quickly while delivering high-quality results.
Security Camera Equipment
While we recommend customers purchase security camera equipment directly from us, we can install any pre-purchased camera system. Depending on the manufacturer, warranties may vary. Standard equipment commonly used during security installations includes:
- Security recorders (DVR/NVR)
- CCTV security cameras
- Access control panels and readers
- Alarm sensors
- Power and video cabling
We advise customers to learn more about a security system’s layout, interface options, and compatibility before purchasing. Our installation team will recommend the best options to ensure secure setup, appropriate technical support, and complete protection.
Access Control and Alarm Systems
Access control systems vary depending on home security camera installation or business security needs. The number of exit and entry points, as well as planning for resident and employee access, will determine how the system is configured. Access control systems commonly include:
- Control keys
- Card readers
- Fingerprint recognition
- Electronic door locks
- Access control panels
- Cable setup
Alarm system installation may vary depending on personal and professional requirements. Advanced systems may include the installation of alarms for windows and vaults, while simple entry and exit alarm systems typically require less configuration time.
Security Camera Installation Process
Standard home security camera installations, including nest camera installations and ring camera installations, can be completed for a single-family home, usually by the end of the same day.
We request a floor plan overview or site survey for all commercial and business CCTV installations. Technicians arrive within a 2-hour window on the day of installation and remain on-site for upwards of several hours, depending on job specifications. From start to finish, the security camera installation process includes:
This step consists of an initial consultation and on-site evaluation of your home or commercial property. After an initial inspection, we recommend equipment and a security system layout to best meet your needs.
Schedule Your Installation
After a quote for the installation is provided to a customer, installation is scheduled.
On installation day, Electrical Synergies will arrive, begin the installation process, and remain on site until the project is completed. During this time, technicians will confirm camera locations, drill, run wires, set up DVR/NVR, and mount cameras.
Once the security system is completely operational, a final review is carried out with our customers to confirm the proper operation of the system and ensure all cameras’ fields of view are properly set. We will test the entire system and thoroughly clean our work area before leaving the premises.
The final stage of the installation process involves training. We advise customers on how to properly use the security system, search and backup footage, and how to access cameras remotely. If you have questions about your security camera installation after technicians leave, please contact us immediately.
