Annual CCTV system maintenance is a requirement of the British Standards Institution, specifically if your CCTV system is installed in accordance with BS: 8418, the standard for detector activated CCTV systems with a Police response, where the frequency is increased to twice yearly.
Often, commercial CCTV systems in the UK have externally installed devices, meaning that as well as normal wear and tear, there are also environmental issues to factor into the preventative maintenance service.
Expert CCTV System Testing
Our CCTV maintenance service includes testing all the main functions of the system including:
- Image quality, orientation and adjustment
- Environmental integrity of all external weatherproofed boxes and connections
- Supplementary lighting, including infra-red
- Playback of recorded images
Where applicable for monitored systems, as part of our security services we also check the setting and removal procedures, external detector alignment, system activation and alarmed image receipt at the RVRC (Remote Video Receiving Centre); plus the all-important UPS battery backup integrity check – giving you the confidence that your system will be fully functional and protecting your property in the coming months.
