Tips for Maintaining Your Video Security Camera System
1 Trim Landscaping
- Make sure your outdoor video security cameras have a clear line of sight.
- Keep vines, bushes, trees and other landscaping trimmed to prevent camera obstruction.
- Remove any bird nests, bee hives, and spider webs located near your cameras.
2 Clean Camera Lenses
- Inspect your indoor and outdoor camera lenses for cleanliness.
- Look for dust, smudges, water spots and other undesirable elements.
- Clean camera lenses regularly to ensure you get a clear shot and optimal image quality.
- Clean camera lenses very gently with compressed air and a microfiber cloth.
3 Inspect Camera Housing
- Check outdoor camera enclosures to ensure they are protecting your cameras from the elements.
- Check your camera enclosures for damage, including warping, dents, holes, and cracks.
- Look for condensation and water inside of the enclosure, along with any dirt.
- Replace dented, damaged, or ill-fitting camera enclosures.
4 Check Cabling
- Inspect all of your cable connections to your security cameras, video recorders and monitors.
- Make sure all of your connected devices are securely connected and are receiving power.
- Look for signs of wear on the cables.
- Replace any cables that are cracked, or showing exposed wire.
- Create a U-shaped drip loop for every outdoor security camera to prevent water from seeping in and pooling inside of the camera.
5 Look for Corrosion
- Inspect your video security equipment and connectors for signs of corrosion.
- Corroded connectors can cause equipment to short out.
- Replace any corroded parts.
6 Remove Dust from Video Recorders
- Dust build-up on your video recorder can affect performance.
- Inspect your DVR/ NVR for dust.
- Frequently wipe your security DVR/NVR with a microfiber cloth, and use compressed air to remove any dust from the recorder's enclosure crevices.
7 Check Power Supplies
- Inspect your security system's power supplies to ensure power has not been lost due to tampering, or a power outage.
- If you have a UPS, make sure the battery is fully-charged, and the warning light is not lit up.
- Use a voltmeter to make sure your security cameras are getting full power (too much or too little power can cause camera failure).
