Effective and regular maintenance of a CCTV surveillance system is essential to ensure that the system remains reliable at all times. Regular maintenance by the maintenance company and effective failure reporting by the user will enable potential problems to be identified at an early stage so that appropriate action can be taken.
Maintaining a CCTV system is preceded by proper planning, design and installation of such systems. See BSIA Form 109 for further information. Whilst maintenance of CCTV systems in the main may be voluntary, there are some legislative requirements recently introduced by Government that may impact on the ongoing maintenance or indeed need for a CCTV system.
This work consists of the scheduled preventative maintenance and inspection of CCTV cameras and their housings and pan/tilt units, including the performance of minor repairs/adjustments on as-needed basis. Both traditional and dome type CCTV cameras are covered in this section.
All work described herein shall be performed on all CCTV cameras once in two months. All of the work shall be completed on all of the cameras within the specified time limits.
The Contractor shall complete each of the steps listed in the following subsections, if applicable for the specific time and location at which the maintenance is being carried out. The Contractor shall also complete and submit to the General Manager the appropriate checklist form attached to this section. All deficiencies noted during inspection and any recommendations for repairs or component replacements shall be reported to the General Manager. All repairs shall use materials previously approved by the General Manager. Component replacements may require the Contractor to schedule a return to the site. Scheduling of the work shall be done by the Contractor in consultation with the General Manager as soon as the authorization to proceed has been given.
