Need 2 security cameras setup outside house

Need 2 security cameras setup outside my house with a hole in the brick that goes inside to the attic. Would like 2 attic outlets installed in the attic so the cameras can be plugged in. Please provide cost estimate.

A security company (installer from a security shop) might do both, but most likely require you get an electrician (or have them subcontract for one) to install the power runs first - unless you did not mean independtly powered cameras. You can buy both ways unless they have attached infrared or visible light area lighting for camera to "see"with, in which case usually need 120V outlet at camera.

Cost likely about $150-250 for outlets assuming able to tap off another circuit in the attic - more like $300-450 if have to home run a dedicated circuit.

Security camera install and wiring to monitor/recorder typically around $150-300 depending on whether you allow it to be run on outside of house or not - plus cost of camera, monitor, recorder, etc.
