How To Run Security Camera Wires

Structured Cabling Installation

Something that must be considered when installing CCTV cameras is how they will be powered, and how wiring will be run throughout the building. In many cases, you’ll be able to install cameras and wiring simply by running the wires through a drop tile ceiling and into the wall. Other jobs will necessitate the use of conduit – piping for running the wiring and protecting it – and in some cases, tearing out part of the wall to lay wiring inside. For these larger jobs, professional video camera installation is usually the right choice, as professional camera system installers can choose the right material for conduit pipes, determine the right number of cables to run, and more.

How Do I Protect My Security Camera Wires?

Security camera cables must be safeguarded against corrosion, water, heat, and other forces that can cause damage over time They should also have some kind of protection against intruders and vandals who may try to cut the wires. Some protective measures include covering cables in sheaths or raceways, painting cables to blend inconspicuously into their surroundings, and running cables inside walls, ceilings, and baseboards. CCTV installation companies should have a strong grasp on all cabling types and uses, to ensure your wires are properly protected.
