CCTV System Maintenance Checklist Leave a comment

Having a CCTV system is important for your home or business, but it’s even more important to have a working one. A non-functioning system leaves your property vulnerable to theft and danger. Just like how it’s important to go to the doctor annually for a check-up, it’s important to perform a routine CCTV system maintenance to ensure that your system is working. If you don’t know how to do a CCTV system maintenance, here is a quick checklist of things that you can do.

Camera & Lens

  • Clean the inside and outside of the camera and its housing.
  • Wipe any dust off of the camera lens.
  • Verify that the camera lens is focused and adjusted properly.
  • Reposition the camera to point in the direction needed.
  • Make sure that the camera is securely mounted to the ceiling or wall.
  • Test the camera’s functions (pan, tilt, zoom) to make sure they are working properly.

Wiring & Cables

  • Check all the wires and cables for any signs of wear or fraying.
  • Make sure that all cables are connected into ports properly and securely.
  • Make sure that your wires are transmitting sound and images without any distortion.

Monitors & Control Equipment

  • Wipe any dust off of monitors and other equipment.
  • Make sure monitors are displaying a clear picture.
  • Check that all connectors and cables are secure and not loose.
  • Make sure that the security footage is showing the correct time and date stamp.

A lot of people forget to check up on their system, but performing a routine CCTV system maintenance is important to ensure that it’s functioning properly. These simple steps are just a few things you can do to keep your CCTV system in good health, but keep in mind that this process is not as comprehensive as a professional maintenance. For the best performance, be sure to contact a qualified professional for a full CCTV system maintenance service and perform checkups yourself in between visits.
