    Hi

    I've bought a Swann Pro-series 700TVL system and it comes with all the wiring and parts including DVR.

    I'm a completely new home owner so my DIY skills are limited... I need some simple advice to the actual wiring of the CCTV system.

    What do most people do with actually getting the external camera connected to the inside of the house and the DVR? I've heard you can avoid drilling any walls on the outside by somehow feeding the cables into the house in the same place that the TV antenna feeds its cable into the loft?

    What would the guys who already have these systems installed recommend? The easy part is of course attaching the cameras to the external walls, it's just the wiring part that's confusing me a little at the moment.

    Thanks in advance

    There's no single right answer. It depends entirely on the construction and layout of the house, which is probably why you haven't received an earlier reply.
    If you can feed the wires under the eaves and into the loft, that will mean the least physical work. But then you have to get them down to where you are going to mount the DVR.
    You need to put that somewhere out of sight, or the first thing a burglar will do is remove the DVR with its evidence.
