Security cameras with motion sensors automatically begin filming when they sense movement and stop when that motion ceases. This feature can save time when reviewing recorded footage, since you won’t have to sift through hours of empty footage. The installation process varies depending on whether your security camera is wireless or not.
Things You’ll Need:
Motion sensor camera
Select the location where you want to install your security camera.
Keep in mind that the motion sensor will detect all movement, so make sure branches from trees and bushes will not trigger the camera.
Mount the camera in the spot you have selected.
Attach wires, if required, to the camera.
Set up the receiver you will be using, whether it’s a TV, VCR, monitor or computer.
Test the motion sensor security camera to make sure it is working properly.
Tips & Warnings
If the location for your motion sensor security camera is obstructed by trees or bushes, you may want to do some landscaping. If your entrances are unlighted, you may also want to consider installing lights with a motion sensor when you install your security camera, which will not only make coming home more convenient, but can also scare off potential burglars who dont want to be seen.
