How Often Should CCTV be Serviced ?
Maintenance of CCTV systems - Depending on the type of system that you have installed, the CCTV camera locations and the amount and frequency of damage that occurs, this will dictate how often your CCTV system will need to be serviced. Furthermore, other factors must be considered, such as if the system has remote CCTV monitoring.
The British Standards for video surveillance systems for use in security is BS EN 62676-4:2015. This standard provides recommendations for testing and maintaining surveillance systems. The standard recommends that an assessment be carried out to consider the manufacturers, instructions, and operational and environmental factors at least annually. It cites the need to maintain CCTV licenses and implement patch updates for system software and firmware updates. Typically, we recommend a CCTV service is carried out annually in accordance with the above standards. Cost-effective CCTV maintenance can save you money and keep your CCTV system operational for longer.
