A Swann smart security camera in a box


Once you have chosen the best locations for your Swann Smart Security Cameras, you're ready to install. You can either screw them in position or stick them to the wall. Here's how to do it.


1Mount template to preferred location

Inside the box you'll find a round template to use as a screw guide. Place this on the surface you want to mount your Swann Smart Security camera to.

2Screw in your screws leaving 1/4 exposed

On timber surfaces, put your screws in with a quarter of the screw exposed. For brick or masonry, drill two 6mm holes in the template, tap in the wall anchors, included in your pack, into place then leave a quarter of each screw exposed.

3 To avoid drilling holes, use adhesive strips included

If you prefer to mount the camera without drilling holes in the wall, use the adhesive strips included.  Place on the back of the camera, apply pressure for 30 seconds, then remove the strip and place on your reserved surface.

Now align the base with the mounting screws and slide it down to secure it in place.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
