Here are a few things you need to keep in mind:

Maintaining Security Cameras 

  • At times your computers may ask you to make updates. Before making a significant update, such as updating your Windows, call us and verify that it will not interfere with the camera software that we have downloaded on your computer.
  • If you get a new router, call us at (618) 503-9095. We may need to gather new information regarding the router.
  • Periodically check to ensure that your cameras are working, and recording. Often times people do not realize that their cameras are not recording properly until they need to review an event.
  • Clean your cameras. Just like the camera on your phone, smudges may occur or dust can collect. For a clear, crisp image, clean regularly with lens cleaner.
