Are you getting the best from your security?
With Spring around the corner, now is a better time than ever to take a look at your premises and make sure everything is working as it should.
One of the best ways you can take care of your people and property is by getting the most from your security solutions. So if you think your CCTV could be doing more to protect your staff, service users and buildings, here are some quick and easy fixes you can implement right now.
Keep it clean
Before cleaning camera lenses, switch off the CCTV unit to prevent damage to moving parts. Gently wipe the lens clean with a microfibre cloth. For a deeper clean, soak the cleaning cloth with lens cleaner.
Make way for better insight
Trim nearby bushes, trees and shrubs. Even if they’re not obstructing the lens, a camera nestled amongst plants is less visible and less of a deterrent. Make sure cameras have enough space around them so they stand out to potential intruders.
Carry out a mini site audit
Check that cameras haven’t been moved or knocked. Adjust the positioning of each camera to maximise visibility. Review your video management software to make sure all areas are covered and you aren’t missing any spots. CCTV cameras can be added one at a time, meaning full coverage without a full overhaul.
