7 Steps to Maintaining a Video Security System!
 

In order to determine that a video security system is performing optimally, it’s a good idea to schedule regular system maintenance.

1 Trim Landscaping

Take a look at outdoor camera locations and make sure that each camera has a clear view. Keep vines, bushes, trees and other landscaping near cameras neat and trimmed, to prevent camera obstruction.

2 Clean Camera Lenses

Check indoor and outdoor camera lenses to make sure that the lenses are clean. Look for dust, smudges, water spots and other undesirable elements on lenses. Clean camera lenses regularly to ensure optimal image quality.

3 Check Camera Housing

Open the housing for each security camera to check for water, condensation and dirt, in order to confirm that the camera enclosures are still protecting your security cameras from the elements.

4 Make Sure Cabling is Securely Connected

Check all cable connections, including those connected to the security cameras, DVR and monitor to ensure that all cables are securely connected and receiving power. Also look for cables to see if they are showing signs of wear. If there is any exposed wire, it is best to replace the cable.

5 Look for Corrosion

Take a look at the cable connectors for corrosion. Be sure to replace any connectors that show signs of corrosion, because it can cause equipment to short out.

6 Remove Dust from Your DVR

Over time, a DVR can develop dust if not dusted regularly – this may affect the DVR’s performance. Frequently wipe security DVRs with a microfiber cloth, and use a can of compress air to remove dust from crevices. It’s not recommended to remove DVRs from their enclosure.

7 Check Your Power Supplies

Frequently check security system power supplies to ensure that the system has not lost power due to tampering, a storm, a brown out or some other unwanted event. If there is an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), take a look at the unit to make sure that the battery is fully charged and does not show any warning lights.
