WHAT IS CCTV MAINTENANCE?
Closed-circuit television or CCTV maintenance is a preventive measure to ensure that surveillance equipment is operational. It is performed by security and facility teams to pre-identify defects and damages to avoid substandard performance and expensive damage costs.
The Importance of CCTV Maintenance
No premises is completely invulnerable to criminal activity, and therefore a crucial element that all business should invest in, is an effective CCTV system.
Prevention is better than the cure, and it’s always best, to frequently monitor the functionality of cameras.
If they were to fail during a break-in, you would regret not taking these steps.
There are a range of benefits to a business that a properly installed and maintained CCTV system provides. Sometimes just the sight of CCTV cameras positioned around an establishment is enough to intimidate would-be thieves. Their simple presence is a great deterrence, and will also make your employees feel protected throughout their working day.
If they are correctly set up, CCTV networks are impenetrable and almost impossible to bypass. A decent system should contain few blinds spots, with focus directed on the most high-risk areas of your individual location. Professional CCTV companies will be able to provide technicians to advise on the most appropriate setup of the cameras.
CCTV can be an effective and versatile tool in helping to combat criminal activity, and other anti-social behaviour. It is also commonly used in business for identifying potential incidents, monitoring production and pilferage. With crime rates in South Africa at a high and insurance rates increasing constantly, can your business afford not to have a CCTV system installed?
CCTV SERVICING & SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENTS (SLAs)
CCTV cameras need to be regularly cleaned and serviced. Neglecting to do so will affect their performance and reduce their operating life. The best way to ensure your system is regularly serviced and fully supported is by signing a Service Level Agreement (SLA) maintenance contract. This agreement is available for New installations done by FrisTech and for current systems that has been installed by other companies.
