Hi. I am going to be fitting some CCTV cameras soon and I was just wondering whether I should hide the cables in the cavity via the loft or just tack the cables around the house.

I intend to mount the cameras just above the first level of the house as I don’t want them too high or too low. I could drill out from above the skirting but I think that may look too messy inside the house.

Is there a standard way of doing it?

Thanks

Stu

Check cavity in loft , if it’s open drill up at a steep angle with a long drill bit into the cavity , push some rods up to the loft with cable attached ....there are various options , taking off plastic down pipe and clip or conduit behind ect...

That normally possibly on new builds or only house built in a certain era?

Mines from the late 70s. I think it has a cavity as I’ve drilled from inside to outside before and there was a gap between the bricks.
