CCTV Service & Maintenance

Car owners know their vehicle requires periodic maintenance and won’t work at the level it was designed to perform at without regular basic checks.  When purchasing a vehicle a list of maintenance items is provided detailing what needs to be periodically undertaken.

The same applies to CCTV systems.  Regular maintenance is important and should be carried out.

CCTV Service and Maintenance falls into two categories, preventative and repair.  Whilst the customer will be able to undertake some basis tasks, i.e. general cleaning of equipment, a maintenance schedule of inspection visits will be set up between the supplier / installer and customer to deal with the more technical or quality issues.

CCTV camera systems are like any other mechanical device and faults may well develop from time to time.  Cameras may stop working, recording equipment stop functioning and TV monitors fail.  The repair functions offered by the CCTV system provider alleviate these problems. Qualified engineers quickly and easily replace faulty or damaged equipment, thus minimizing any down-time.

A Service Agreement / Contract will be confirmed between the customer and provider detailing the service provision offered. Service Agreement Options will vary depending on the level of service provision required.
