A wall bracket is used when the camera is to be mounted away from a wall.
This is particularly useful for mounting cameras on corners of buildings.
A pole is used to increase the height of a camera and this may simply be a metal pole attached to the wall, a telegraph pole or a lamp post.
Due to the costs of these items, we always consider the option for fitting a camera in a different position and using a zoom lens to deliver the desired view.
If a pole is required a special bracket must be fitted to secure the camera.
