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.

  1. Good one, simple video but gives a good idea visually how to do it. Now presume pulling the cable themselves through attic and tight spaces and drilling etc is the real deal here…

  2. Not sure why you're getting downvoted. Title matches the video, I certainly got some useful information out of this. I'm going to have to install 8 cameras some time soon (soffit mounted). I imagine the real tough part is going to be running the cables through the attic, especially considering that there's not enough space to stand up there, my roof is slanted, and there's no flooring so I'll have to crawl on joists…

  3. if you can't physically get to or see the hole where you want to run the wires (very tight space) what's the best way to get the wires to the hole and across the attic where you can get to it?

  4. The mounting is the easiest part. Terminating those cables to an interior location is the hard part, especially with no Attic like myself. Any insight on that?

  5. Thank you for showing this, I've been looking through so many videos and I mostly find reviews. You showed what size the home needs to be.

  6. Clean install!! Best I have seen yet, so many leave wires hanging or staple wire runs and it looks horrible. I am going to install a new 8 camera 4mp system next week when it comes in. Your video was helpful, thanks a bunch!!

  7. Where do the cables run from there? In the ceiling or the walls? How does the cabling come out of the walls or ceiling and into the DVR?

  8. awesome…nicely done..i just boiught the 8 channel night owl system..n didn't realize the cameras were wired..also bought a 2 pack so I have 8 cameras all wired…don't want all those wires showing…im not "mr fix it" at all…sooo ur video was ALOT of help…thanks

  9. Don't cover your connections with electrical tape, as it draws and keeps moisture. Instead, use silicone dielectric grease on your connections. Use it on the power connectors and the bnc connector – also for POE RJ45 connectors. It prevents damage from moisture and the corrosion that comes from 12v connections.

  10. Where did wires get run to? Was there a electrical outlet inside where the wires were running how far away was the electrical outlet

  11. Hi mate just bought a WF security camera can I hard wire it to existing household power cables for powering it or do I have to plug it in somewhere as I'm putting it outside and there's no power points out there…………….

  12. Sure wish u would have done a step x step, beginning to end, including drilling holes from addict, best place to put them and so on. Do u have a video showing all of this? If so, can you pls direct me pls and thx?
