My friend is planning on installing some security cameras on the outside of his house and I'll be helping him. I have a few questions:
- How do we avoid drilling through wires and pipes? Is there a rule-of-thumb for were these are normally located in the walls?
- Should we use a long drill-bit to go all the way through to the inside?
- What is an easy way to route cables (data and power) from the outside into the inside of the house?
- Are plain old wood screws good enough to mount the camera securely to the outside? Or should we use something extra for mounting?
We've never done this before, so any advice is appreciated.
