A GUIDE TO CLEANING A CAMERA
Step 1: Once more examine the CCTV system
A recorder test: Examine the recorder's buttons and hardware.
- Does the CCTV camera record anything?
+Is the camera image noisier, blurrier, or of lower quality than it was earlier?
+In the absence of light, can the camera activate the infrared light?

Step 2: Complete the cleaning procedures for the CCTV camera.
* Camera hardware maintenance:
Clean the case of the CCTV: Wipe the dust off the camera's exterior casing to prevent oxidation, and damage to the hardware, and to keep the camera looking brand-new. When installing a camera outside, ensure sure there are no bushes, vines, or other obstacles and that the area is constantly cold. This aids in good viewing via the camera and shields it from harm from the surroundings.
Lens maintenance: The camera's lens has to be cleaned from time to time. It may become covered in dirt or water, which would make it hard to view. The picture quality will drastically decline even if the camera has a high resolution. The process is straightforward as follows: You may either use an exhaust vent to wipe the surface or a soft cloth designed exclusively for cleaning camera lenses.
- Dust removal for the recorder:
Your recorder will accumulate a coating of dust over time. It should be routinely cleaned to maintain the receiver's recording quality. To open the gadget and blow out the board dust, unscrew the screws.
Make sure the cooling equipment is functioning correctly by checking it.
- Check for damage and mouse bites and clean the camera wire system. Damage should be repaired by installing new wire.
- Check the signals wire jacks again to see if the devices are firmly attached.
* Fixing software bugs: Handling data and software faults.
– As needed, add or modify the parameters.
- Back up data to storage media.
– Complete the CCTV system check.
Pay particular attention to the fact that you must undertake periodic cleaning per 3-6 months for the CCTV system to function steadily, without issues, to extend its life, etc.
