The Spinning Camera Mount Reviewed

Author: John Grocke, Published on Sep 06, 2013

It is often said that necessity is the mother of invention. Not long ago, Canadian integrator Lanoptic Video Solutions won a contract to install a large amount of surveillance cameras for a chain of distribution centers and faced a challenge of how to mount them from web-joist ceiling trusses quickly and conveniently to minimize installation time.

They found that no camera manufacturer had an ideal mounting solution for this specific application and noticed other integrators modified standard pendant mounts with plumbing fittings or cobbled together mounts from hardware store parts. They developed their own solution to the problem, the Novattach quick-mount truss bracket, and are now marketing it to other integrators facing the same problem. In this note, we examine this mounting system and its applications.
