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.

1. Mount 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.

2. Screw in your screws leaving ¼ 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.
