Why Preventive Maintenance of CCTV is Important?

CCTV solutions are perfect for securing homes and businesses. They are a preventive security solution that allows property owners to be on the lookout for vandals and burglars. Installing CCTV surveillance cameras can improve the security of the premises. It does so by deterring thieves from making your property a target for their next crime.

Preventive maintenance of CCTV cameras is important. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider them for your surveillance system.

  1. Longer Life All electronic equipment including CCTV systems have a limited lifespan. With preventive maintenance, you can expect your surveillance system to last longer.

  2. Optimum Performance Preventive maintenance of your CCTV system will also ensure that it is working optimally. You should not take any chance with your security system.

A malfunctioning camera will prevent you from detecting an intruder who tries to break into the house. Moreover, if the storage device is not recording properly, you cannot have footage of the crime scene.

  1. Increased Security Regular preventive maintenance of the surveillance system will ensure that your house or office remains protected at all times. CCTV systems with motion detection features provide instant notification in case any movement is detected, you will not know about a break-in if this feature is not working.

  2. Decreased Downtime CCTV cameras can become offline due to a fault. Professional technicians of companies that provide preventive maintenance can detect issues before it leads to a major equipment failure. This proactive maintenance will ensure that your surveillance system never goes offline thereby ensuring the security of your premises.

  3. Reduced Repair Costs Preventive maintenance of CCTV systems will reduce the risk of equipment failure. It will help prevent major faults with the cameras. The cost of preventive maintenance is much less than the cost you would otherwise have to bear due to equipment failure.

What’s Involved in CCTV Preventive Maintenance? Companies that perform maintenance of CCTV systems will check for fraying wires and replace them if required. In addition, they will clean the lens to ensure a clear line of sight. Professional technicians will also inspect the power supply cables to ensure that they are in good condition.

Other tasks in preventive maintenance include:

Check the integrity of storage equipment Inspect the display device Verify that all functions are working properly Adjust contrast or focus of the lens to ensure a clear view Check software and network settings of CCTV system What Should be the Frequency of CCTV Preventive Maintenance? The frequency of CCTV maintenance depends on the age of the system. New model surveillance cameras require an inspection once each year. Older systems require more frequent inspections. You should consider getting an old CCTV system checked after every five to six months.
