Maintenance Of Home Security Systems

Purchasing and installing multiple security systems is not enough, you also need to take care of their maintenance to ensure that they function as they should. We have seen so many cases where people installed not one but multiple security gadgets for ensuring the safety of their home but those systems failed to protect them. It’s not a difficult or a tedious procedure to check the security systems for irregularities. You can actually check all of the security systems installed in your home within half an hour. In this article we will discuss some simple but very effective ways of making sure that your security systems are working fine.

  • Maintenance of CCTV Cameras:

CCTV cameras are built to run continuously for many days so chances are that they will not develop a technical snag. While you are in your home, switch off the cameras for sometime so that their circuitry can cool down. Apart from this you must also make sure that there is no glare coming from a light source. You can see this by taking a look at the recorded footage. A glare from any light source directly in the front of CCTV cameras can render them useless. Remove any light source that is directly in their field of vision. Also make sure that you install them at a height where it is difficult to reach them.

  • Taking Care of the Driveway Alarm System:

Driveway alarm systems work wirelessly through radio waves. Have you ever noticed that your radio doesn’t works well in basement? The reason is that radio waves get blocked by thick walls. The same principle applies in the case of driveway alarms too. If there is something that is obstructing the communication between the transmitter and the receiver, chances are that your system will fail to issue an alert. Make sure that you chop down any trees or bushes that lie in this path. Also keep checking the system for worn out batteries.

  • Maintenance of Biometric Security Systems:

Biometric security systems are quite safe. It is beyond the skill level of a normal street thug to hack them. But you should also do your part and make sure that they are working as they should be. Let us consider the case of finger print sensors. If there is dust on the sensor, it will either malfunction or fail to recognize your finger print. Make sure that you keep all the sensors clean.
