How to Mount CCTV Security Surveillance Cameras to Poles – Cheap Mounting Alternatives – YouTube
Mercy from Discount Low Voltage solves a common problem customers have by finding an inexpensive way to mount a box type security camera to a pole. The solution is cheap, easy to set up and effective. Just head to the nearest home improvement store to pick up a hose clamp and some conduit hangers. Make sure to choose a clamp that is large enough to fit around the pole and that the conduit hangers are large enough to fit them on the hose clamp.
Once you have your supplies ready, head out to the pole where you wish to install the camera. Slide a conduit hanger onto the metal hose clamp and place the assembly over the pole. Tighten the hose clamp using a screwdriver. Next, remove the base of the box camera’s mount. This part usually screws right off without any trouble. Slide the pole of the camera mount into the conduit hanger and then put the base back onto the camera mount. Put the screw that came with the conduit hanger into the pre-drilled holes on the hanger and tighten it down until you have a good fit.
Once everything is in place and tightened, the camera should be pretty secure, Try to wiggle it to make sure that everything is tight and where you want it before you bring power to the camera. Because this security camera mount option does not require any permanent alterations to the building, it can be a great non-permanent solution for business owners that can’t alter the exterior of the building, but need more security. It’s also a great choice for temporary or seasonal security needs or for trying out different camera placements before opting for a more permanent solution.
