It is crucial that CCTV systems are well maintained to protect employees, customers and anyone else entering a building or premises. CCTV acts as a safeguarding from factors such as break-ins, robbery and to help identify a fire before it is too late. The fact that they are such a worthy component for security and health and safety must showcase the importance of regular maintenance and servicing.
Both external and internal CCTV cameras should be serviced regularly, at least once a year to perform to their full potential and to make sure there aren’t any issues that have been undetected by the operator.
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating of a CCTV camera is designed by the manufacturer to keep water out and to keep it functioning through harsh weather. If a camera is not appropriately serviced and maintained the rubber seals and glands can disintegrate. As a result, water can enter the camera housing and potentially take out the power supply unit (PSU) which supplies all of the other cameras on a site. This in turn would lead to a complete CCTV failure for that premises.
To have a complete CCTV failure opens the doors to huge threat in terms of security and safety.
