Outdoor surveillance cameras offer added protection around the home and can detect and identify intruders. They install on virtually any exterior home covering, including vinyl siding, using a mounting bracket and screws. When mounting the surveillance camera, choosing a sturdy location with an unobstructed view point is crucial. To attach the mounting bracket, you must mark and predrill the holes through the siding using a drill. Then the screws for the bracket slide easily into the underlying home structure.

- Look around the exterior of the home for the best mounting location for the surveillance camera. Find an area that has a clear view of the area that you want to monitor and that has no trees or other vegetation blocking it. The location should also be accessible only by a ladder to prevent anyone from tampering with it.
