Setting up your system:

Step 1: Plugging Everything in and Mounting the Cameras

Part A: Bench test all equipment - before mounting and installing your cameras, you want to make sure all the cameras are working and that you are happy with your purchase.

To bench test grab a known working, pre-made cable, and plug it into your NVR (Or DVR & power if TVI). This will help narrow down any issues with cabling or cameras in the future.

Part B:

Plug in your cameras and your recorder. Here's some guides to get you started on that:
