CCTV installation usually has 2 DIY methods. First fully wired system with each camera located in its desired position connected by a cable back to a central control box. The cable is usually a coax cable for video and a power cable. The second method is a wireless system where each camera has an antenna sending it's video back to a central control box. The WiFi cameras still need power though.. Most CCTV systems have Android apps that then allow you to watch video on your mobile device.

Home install is only as complicated as your camera locations. Such as requiring ladders and drills for routing cabling. The systems are usually plug and play. Once connected and powered they are fairly straightforward.

YouTube have loads of installation videos.

My CCTV is showing hacked on the cameras. How do I reset my password


Your CCTV is connected via an Internet connection.
I'll recommend to isolate the network devices from the Internet before continuing.
This is covering only basic steps, I recommend to get the instruction manual for the CCTV and read it.
  1. Enter the administration section of the CCTV recorder/DCR/NVR by entering your admin account name and password.
  2. Go to the admin setup of the CCTV. Search for overlay and verify if the hacker inserted text on the overlay feature, if you don't use overlay, disable it.
  3. Then check each camera name tags in the admin section. Change the text if it was hacked.
  4. Change the password for the CCTV DVR/NVR/Camera, I bet it was never changed. Write the password down and store it in a safe place.
  5. Last option: If you can't find the place do a factory reset of the DVR/NVR/Camera. (Do make a backup before a factory reset to an external device if possible).
  6. Once the factory reset is done, you will have to reconfigure the recording options for each camera.
  7. Last point after the factory reset, change the admin password.
Are there other devices sharing the Internet connection with the CCTV?
If this answer is YES, then check them for hacker breach.
  1. I'll recommend to increase the security on the Internet Router.
  2. Any device sharing the Internet with the CCTV should be checked for breaches and made secure.
  3. Speak to your ISP and ask for assistance if you have a fixed IP address to your CCTV system. Ask them for advice. Layer 7 routers are more expensive but more secure.
  4. Load all updates for any devices!
Get an IT security expert to assist you with the breach if necessary.

I am going to write a short discussion because I feel this subject is best handled by a person that knows what they are doing. There are plenty of Youtube videos that shows you how to install a CCTV system. As you didn't mention what type of CCTV camera it is, can this topic become very lengthy.
Please look at this tutorial on youtube,

The old systems is not difficult to do it yourself if your technical minded, although the newer systems will require some IT background. I recommend a certified installer to assist you, you can damage the camera if you don't know what your are doing.

Get the correct cabling and connectors.
The easiest are the pre-crimped cabling for DIY and it is plug and play. No setup is usually required for the CCTV recorder to work unless the recording on the CCTV was disabled. Any other setup will require special tools.

You get 2 kinds to wired CCTV camera systems.
The old tech is analogue with a thick data cable and set of wire for power.
The professional installed cabling will require a technical person to crimp the CCTV cable with a special BNC crimping tool. The
The old systems needs to have
The newer systems uses LAN cables.
The newer systems requires an IT/CCTV tech person to set it up.

I have a sentient cctv dvr from Maplin I can view it on my phone at home which is fine I wanted to know if I can view camera footage when I'm not at home etc. at work


Yes you can definitely view your CCTV footage on your mobile phone at your work via internet. Sentient CCTV DVR basically is a night vision camera. You must know the IP of the camera and IP Video server. Connecting your phone to CCTV camera via the protocol you can view the CCTV footage's in your phone. Night vision cameras are used for surveillance purpose. I would prefer cctv camera with ir illuminator for good image quality in the night time that will clear footage quality in my phone.
Recently many new applications have also being launched by security cameras with a view to solve problem you mentioned.

Where does a father of a three year old son turn to when the mother of his child is out of control?


Hi,

I would suggest installing a hidden camera. You can find a good deal at this cctv equipment store. Talk to the people. They can give discounts on out going models.

Next you need a cctv Viewing service for $1/day. Real Security guards will view your cam 24x7 and call you when something undesirable starts. You can then immediately call you wife and subtly intervene.
Most people stop in their tracks when rage is diverted or interrupted. You can see the mother out of control in cctv and produce the recording in court if required.
