Methods Used to Prepare Security Camera Cost Estimates
Security camera installation is usually quoted on a per hour basis. Contractors will estimate the total number of hours needed to complete the project by considering the number of cameras and the location of cameras. If you have decided on a typical 4 camera system, some contractors may decide to charge you a flat rate of $580 to $1,080.

Reasons for Security Camera Installation Cost Variances
Security camera companies use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Number of hours. Number of hours is the primary cost consideration. Longer projects may come at a lower cost per hour than shorter ones. (Discounts may apply as the amount of work increases.)
Number of cameras. If you plan to install more than 4 cameras, the cost of the project may increase. More sophisticated security systems will require more labor to complete the installation.
Location. If your cameras will be placed in high or hard to reach places, the cost of the installation may increase.
Type of cameras. Outdoor cameras are generally more expensive than indoor ones, and there will be an additional cost to consider.
Geography. If you are in a high-cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
