Is Your System Healthy?

Published by Marie on September 22, 2015 11:22 AM

Healthy-Surveillance-System-Blog-Image-9-29-15.jpgAfter you've purchased and installed your video surveillance system, the important steps of on-going maintenance of the system begins.

It may be tempting to assume everything is fine and won't need a lot monitoring, but we highly recommend that you follow these basic steps to keep your system healthy and performing well - it's better to prevent an outage than realize the system was down after a crime has been committed.

Daily tasks should focus on ensuring your equipment is powered up and connected:

  • Checking your server's power, if you use one
  • Checking the connection and feed of ALL your cameras

Weekly tasks should focus on updates and exports:

  • Running Windows system updates
  • Running a full virus and malware scan
  • Exporting any requested videos

Monthly tasks should focus on your system's settings:

  • Running firmware upgrades
  • Checking all motion detection settings
  • Update your system's security, including removing old users and changing passwords

Yearly tasks should focus on the health of your system's equipment:

  • HHD defrag and RAM scan
  • RAID health check, if you're using a RAID setup
