CCD Camera Installation

By Hollan Johnson

A CCD camera is a security camera that allows users to monitor a situation from a remote location. They are good for homes and businesses so you can keep an eye on people and have video evidence of someone if they do something illegal. The installation of CCD cameras is simple as they have built in mounts that need to be attached to something, like a wall mount.

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Video output cord
  • Monitor
  • Sequential switcher

Step 1

Unscrew the screws on the top or bottom of the CCD camera and place the camera on the mount. Place the mount board over the camera mount to hold the CCD camera in place. Screw the screws back in place.

Step 2

Plug the CCD camera into a power outlet.

Step 3

Plug the video output cord into the back of the CCD camera. Plug the other end of the cord into the sequential switcher and plug the switcher into a monitor.

Step 4

Turn on the CCD camera. Turn the lens-iris lever control to adjust the brightness of the camera.

Step 5

Open the CCD lens wide and turn the back focus screw to adjust the focus of the CCD camera.
