How to Install a Remote Surveillance System


Wireless technology and the Internet have combined to create surveillance systems that provide users with secure video monitoring from anywhere in the world. Protecting your family and your property while you’re at home or away has never been easier.


  • Buy a remote surveillance system. Several different styles are available online. Look for systems that feature wireless connections, wide-angle lenses and low-light vision.
  • Sketch a diagram detailing how you will position your cameras before you install them. Draw arcs to indicate lines of sight in order to identify any possible blind spots you might want to cover.
  • Following your diagram, install cameras around your premises. Cameras for wireless systems only need to be plugged into an outlet. Cameras can rest on a shelf or ledge, mount on the wall or ceiling, or stick to a window depending on their location and your preference.
