Not being happy with my current array of cctv housings adorning the roof of my house, I decided to build a better camera enclosure. The design is based on a Ziggurat which is basically a flat topped Pyramid and will house 4 cameras. Each camera window has its own heater to prevent condensation.
The enclosure base is made from plywood and beech and the Ziggurat is acrylic sheet with 3mm glass windows. Hinged at one side and clasps on the other makes access to cameras quick and easy.
The angle of the sides is approx. 53 degrees which should give me a little freedom in the latitude angle of the cameras without affecting visibility through the glass. It would take too long to write the whole process here, but it took a lot of thought, a bit of hard work and very careful planning. (The careful planning was how to get it up there without the wife knowing.)
Now just wanting a couple of clear nights for camera alignment.
Thanks guys. I wanted a 4th cam to cover my southerly direction and didn't really want a 4th cctv housing on the roof as it would start to look unsightly for the neighbours, so I had to come up with a less intrusive way to mount 4 cameras. This Ziggurat sits mostly on the roof with only a small overhang so is actually less visible and more pleasing to the eye. If it all works as intended I will be happy.
