Camera brackets - types and application



The popularity of using cameras is growing every day, and all this is due to the wide availability of this product on the market and its price, because the cheapest cameras do not exceed PLN 100, so practically everyone can buy them. When we decide to buy, we must also remember that in addition to the camera and SD card or recorder with a disk, we should also take care of the aesthetics of the camera installation and the safety of their operation. For this purpose, we should consider using dedicated camera mounts, which will ensure that our cameras will not only look good, but also allow you to hide cable ends sensitive to external conditions and seal the entire structure.

            The cameras are characterized by a different construction of the housing and this criterion should be taken into account when choosing the right mount. We can distinguish cameras: dome, tube, so-called. "bullet" and rotary (so-called PTZ) as in the picture below:

The selection of the holder should be matched to a specific camera model, because only then can we be sure that the holes in the holder will perfectly match the holes in the mounting foot of the camera. Brackets offered by Zintronic, which are compatible with cameras of the same brand, can be divided into: distance, wall, pole or corner brackets, as well as brackets for specific models of cameras from well-known companies, i.e.: Hikvision, BSC or Dahua. Examples of types of handles are shown in the pictures below:

It is worth consulting our consultant before buying, who will advise you on the most optimal choice, not only in terms of ensuring the aesthetics of the camera installation, but also or above all - protecting the camera against the influence of weather conditions and moisture.

            The most common mistakes made during the installation of the cameras are incorrect protection of the camera's cable ends or no protection at all. As a result, sooner or later, it leads to improper operation of our device, and we can observe it by, among others: fogging of the camera lens, traces of liquids in the lens, no connection with the camera - there is no preview on the mobile application or recorder, tarnished ends adapter or RJ-45 plug. Damage resulting from non-compliance with the general rules of operation is not covered by the warranty and is not removed free of charge. The cost of a potential camera repair in such situations is comparable to the purchase of a new camera, which is why it is so important to pay due attention to how we can best protect ourselves from such events and with the help of our consultant choose the optimal solution.

Examples of connections of several cameras with holders are shown below:



  It is also necessary to remember that when planning the installation of cameras with the use of brackets, it is often necessary to place power supplies. Unfortunately, the space in the holders is very limited and we certainly won't be able to fit the power supply or anything else there. Therefore, then we also need to obtain installation boxes that will allow you to place the necessary equipment in them. Then, when choosing such boxes, we must pay attention to whether they are hermetic and have the appropriate tightness class (especially important for outdoor installation), because only such products guarantee proper protection against weather conditions and moisture. If we use cans without seals, only with a closure, we run the risk of moisture getting inside and damaging not only the camera, but also other devices connected to the same power network, and this poses a threat to health and life.

A few sample photos showing the method of mounting the cameras, which we definitely do NOT recommend, and even advise against, are provided below:



The above photos show the cameras installed outside the buildings, where spacers were not used and therefore the entire cable harness of the camera is visible from the outside. It looks quite unsightly, but above all it can be dangerous for the camera. Despite the fact that covers for RJ-45 plugs are used here, all wires are exposed to the weather and moisture. Not even a makeshift protection with insulating tape was used here, so the risk of damage to the camera in these cases is very high.

For comparison, it is worth seeing the recommended camera mounting solutions with the use of distance brackets, in which the cables connecting the camera to the network and power cables are hidden. Properly performed assembly shows the aesthetic view of the entire set and provides optimal protection against the influence of weather conditions and moisture. Here are some examples:



When buying our first camera or the entire monitoring set, we should also think
about the place and method of mounting our equipment so that it looks aesthetically placed on the walls of our house, building or pole. However, the appearance should go hand in hand with proper protection of the equipment and its operation, so as to minimize the risk of its damage caused by weather conditions (rain, snow, fog, etc.) and moisture. By using properly selected handles with hermetic boxes to hide power cords, we take care of our property and extend their life, and we ensure a sense of security and save money.
