Tips and strategies you should consider when installing home surveillance cameras.
The use of network-based technology for signal transport has made all the difference in ease of installation and advances in system functionality.
In order to derive the full potential available in most IP-based video surveillance systems it’s imperative that you use the right cable and that it be installed properly.
Here are 18 tips for positioning IP-based home security cameras:
- You must match UTP connected devices, such as couplers, modular plugs and wall plates, to the Category of the cable used and do so consistently installation-wide.
- By design and specification, cable runs in an IP camera system can only extend up to 295 feet for optimum performance.
- Bend radius of both Cat-5e and -6 cables must be limited to four times the cable diameter; the accepted bend radius is no less than 1 inch.
- Pull tension while installing Cat-5e/-6 cable cannot exceed 25 pounds.
- Before stripping the sheath from a cable in a wall box, limit the length so the excess can easily be pushed back into the wall cavity.

Security Sales and Integration recently announced in an article by Scott Fine that Canon is looking to buy Axis for 2.8 Billion dollars. The announcement comes less than a year after the Japanese imaging giant acquired VMS leader Milestone.
In what would be a monumental industry deal, Canon is making a strong push to purchase Axis, the market-share leader in network IP video surveillance cameras and related devices, for $2.8 billion.
This comes less than a year after Japanese imaging giant Canon bought Milestone, a leader in video management software, for an undisclosed amount.
“This is a massive development in the video surveillance equipment market. Until last year, Canon was a small player in this market,” IHS Principal Analyst for Video Surveillance Equipment Jon Cropley says. “In June 2014, Canon acquired the world’s largest supplier of video management software, Milestone Systems. Now, Canon is purchasing the world’s largest supplier of network cameras. All of this shows just how seriously Canon is about expanding its interests in the video surveillance equipment market.”
