Installing Security cameras with no cable showing, Q-See Surveillance Camera


From the attic side I stuck this cable down. And I’m now going to bring the camera up and
mount it right over that hole. I’ve pre-drilled, you can see there I’ve pre-drilled
three pilot holes, here, here and here. From the attic side I stuck this cable down.
And I’m now going to bring the camera up and mount it right over that hole. I’ve pre-drilled,
you can see there I’ve pre-drilled three pilot holes, here, here and here. That ‘s a 3/4″
spade bit, to push that through. So I’ll connect the camera ends and push it back up. Alright
so I’ve got the cables connected from thecamera end. I like to put electrical tape
on them, it probably doesn’t need it up in the attic, but it certainly doesn’t hurt anything.
You’ll see here, pull the electrical tape tight as you’re wrapping it around, stretch
it a little bit it’ll will get the imprint and keep all that nice and snug.
Now one trick here to be able to do a smaller hole up here, you can certainly do a smaller
hole. I’ve done ti with a 5/8″, it’s really tight. I did this last one with a 3/4″ spade
bit, but if you’ll notice here… let’s see if I can do this while on a ladder and holding
the camera here, sorry for my shaky camera work… that doesn’t fit so as most of you
have probably figured out, push one through and then you have this thinner cable next
to it and then push them both through. So now you just… oops sorry for the camera
work… keep pushing that through… trying to do this with one hand… and you’ll come
up here and you’ll mount the camera over that and your pre-drilled holes and you’ll have
no cables showing. right up the middle, just screw it there, aim it, and then pull up your
phone app, aim the camera how you want it, and you’re done. So here it is mounted, up under the eve. That’s wast she looks like. Here’s a view of another one my cameras I mounted as well. And here’s a fast forward video of me mounting another one of my cameras in the same fashion. Thank you for watching, feel free to leave comments below.
