How to Position a Baby Monitor Camera

Baby Monitor Camera

Using a baby monitor camera is great as it keeps your baby safe and, more importantly, it helps you on the sleep training. The market gives you high-tech baby monitors but it’s essential to know where to place them in order to get the best out of them.

Begin by reading the manufacturer’s instructions, no matter how boring it may seem. Check also the safety tag from the electrical cord of the baby monitor in order to play it extremely safe at all time.

The location of the baby monitor camera makes the system work or not. You should choose a place that is at least 3 feet away from the crib, where your baby sleeps. Don’t place it inside the crib/bassinet, not hang it on the crib rail. Even though your newborn isn’t able to grab much, you should still install the monitor at least 3 feet away from the crib. Don’t forget your baby grows so take a trip into the future also.

The angle of the position is also important and when you wall mount high and out-of-reach, you actually get a better view. You may find baby monitors that are very easy to mount and offer good visibility in the dark as well. Some models actually move up/down, left/right via a remote control so that you better see your baby.

Never use the baby monitor in the bathroom or around water. Make sure that the monitor’s electrical cord is 3 feet away from the crib and conceal the cord with a cover. It’s always good to plug the monitor into a childproofed electrical socket.

How to Run Security Camera Wires Through the Attic

Security Cameras for Attic

We all know that security wiring kind of means to pull almost every trick out of your bag (and we’re not talking about the money). Running a security camera in your house isn’t for the faint of heart and exposed wires don’t look great, not to mention the security risk.

There are plenty of ideas when it comes to installing the security camera wires through your attic and you may choose the one that works the best for you.

installing cctv in your houseA great option is to use a good set of wiring rods that screw together and come in a suitable tube. You start by drilling a hole in the right place, in the eves close to the wall. You continue by poking a rod through the hole, going into the loft space with a torch so you see the place where the rod actually passed through. It’s essential to know where and in which direction you have to pass the rods and the attached cable.

You also add more rods and tape the cable to the end of feeding the rods, right about the direction into the roof space. It’s better not to do it alone as a friend could better guide you through the job (the insulation may snag).

Even though you may feel these rods are pricey, they really pay back. You may even find newer models with magnetic ends- truly higher priced.

If this method doesn’t do it for you, you may always use the flexible tape or use a PVC conduct that is rather restrictive, though.

How to Install Security Cameras on a Two Story House

Security Cameras for House

Having a two-story house is great for the space and the comfort you get, but it may become a bit challenging when dealing with some new situations. Installing security cameras (kit camere supraveghere)  is one of the situations where you need to get creative and efficient without making too much mess in the house.

Some choose to use the attic for this scenario. If you’re lucky enough to have two closets (one on the top floor and the other one below), it’s quite easy. You just punch through the ceiling from the attic into the top closet, and then punch through the floor of the top closet, into the ceiling of the first floor closet. As for the cables, you should come down with them in unnoticeable places. You may find “wire mold” products that hide very well the running cables down walls and along baseboards.

Some even fish the cables into the walls, but you do need to get the special tools for your two-story house.

In case you have to come down the outside wall, it is easier to run the cables through the attic. Punch through all the cables down the outside wall in one spot. It looks better like this and you do not have to put in much ladder time. You may camouflage it as well if you like it better like that.
