Types Of Security Camera Mounts Vary With Installation Needs

May 11, 2008
The type of security camera being installed as well as its location will help decide the type of security camera mounts you will need. For the most part, cameras can be mounted in just about any location in nearly all types of weather, but the environment will rule on the effectiveness of the cameras. When installing cameras outdoors where weather conditions can offer extreme changes, security camera mounts can including weather proof housing to help protect the cameras.

Many of the outdoor housings and security camera mounts also include connection for heaters to keep the cameras warm and functioning properly in bitterly cold weather. The installer needs to be careful about the number of cameras connected to a power supply in these circumstances as the heaters will draw a low of power and could temporarily shut down the entire bank of cameras.

Some of the outdoor security camera mounts are mounted on a single arm that attaches to a horizontal or vertical surface and allow the camera housing to be rotated to many different angles in order to obtain the required picture angle. Additional outdoor security camera mounts, known as trees can hold up to three or even four separate camera housings to provide a wide range of coverage over a large area, such as parking lot.

Indoor Installations May Require Imagination

Installing security cameras indoors is much easier than outside as the weather will not play any role in their function. However, depending on it purpose the security camera mounts can take on many forms. From those black globes visible in many large businesses to much smaller domes that are strapped to poles over cash registers, security camera mounts take on many forms and functions.

Some of the security camera mounts are nothing more than a solid bar of metal to which the camera is fastened and the metal bar is then hidden behind a smoked glass in the ceiling. Still others are on a bowed piece of metal hidden behind a half-globe of darkened plastic hidden in the ceiling or in a wall. Some business are not shy about their cameras and make them prominently visible to everyone.

The main issue with security camera mounts is that they provide a stable hold on the camera and do not allow the camera to slip out of position. Occasionally, they will need to be checked as simple vibrations may allow them to loosen and the camera will slip out of its original position.
