What can I expect from this service?
You can expect a single installer who is able to service a home up to two stories in height using a standard two-section ladder for access to the camera mounting positions. The pro will run and conceal the video cables you supply between the camera and the DVR unit. The camera will require a local power socket and final camera mounting position will be governed by available viewing angles and safe ladder access. A final assessment of camera images will be carried out to confirm that the system is operational following the installation and the pro will show you how to use your new system. Providers are not expected to patch or repair the drywall if holes must be cut to run cables through your walls. Remote viewing setup is not included in the price of this service.
Does the provider need to conceal my cabling?
To protect the camera cables from being cut by intruders, providers will always attempt to hide the cables. Pros will do their best to include this service as part of their initial estimate but additional costs may apply pending an onsite inspection to understand the material and build of your home. They will use conduit or wire molding when it is not cost effective or possible to hide the cables in the walls or attic.
Do I have the right products for this service?
This service is intended for wired surveillance camera systems, most of which come with 60 feet of cabling.
What do I need to provide for this service?
You are responsible for the provision of all equipment, including power strip and recording device, and adequate power sockets in close proximity to the DVR position.
Why should I hire a pro?
Even jobs that look easy can go wrong in any number of ways. Handing off the project to a professional, who has experience doing exactly what you need done, will save you time and potential headaches by making sure the job gets done right the first time.
What if I have special security camera installation requirements?
Once your service is purchased, you can discuss any special security camera installation requirements with your installer. If your requirements materially change the desired scope of work for security camera installation, the pro will provide you an updated price estimate. You can then choose to accept the new estimate if it falls within your budget.
