Installing CCTV cameras is not a difficult task as long as the installer adheres to the instructions provided by the manufacturer. However, the effort and time required differs depending on the surveillance monitoring system one chooses.
Some monitoring systems come readily assembled, taking between five and 10 minutes for an individual to install, while others require the installer to start putting together the parts from scratch. Installing wireless systems is not difficult compared to wired systems, which require drilling holes and routing cables. Finding the right points to place the cameras and the central monitoring system also reduces the hassle involved with the whole installation process.
