A Swann smart security camera in a box

Overview

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.

Steps

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.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. 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 or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
