Over the years, surveillance technology has advanced from the traditional analog cameras to the highly efficient IP based camera systems. However, businesses that invested in surveillance cameras some years back, may find it difficult to abandon their systems in favor of the new surveillance systems, largely due to the fear that it would be too expensive. Below are some questions that would help in determining if the time is right to upgrade. 

1. How old is the CCTV surveillance system?

CCTV Systems have a lifecycle ranging between five and 10 years. During this time, routinesecurity cameras nyc maintenance should be sufficient to keep the system operational. For this reason, it would be imprudent to upgrade such a system, since the cost of maintenance is low.

2. What about the return on investment?

Businesses usually consider the number of years that it would take to get a return on investment for any project, before committing funds. The ROI is an important consideration when implementing a surveillance system because it enables the business to determine its economic viability. It makes financial sense to upgrade a CCTV system after the initial costs of implementation have been recouped.

3. Warranty on parts - is it still valid?

In some cases, surveillance cameras can breakdown before their warranty period lapses. It is advisable to have the faulty cameras replaced, as per the terms of the warranty, instead of spending money on new cameras.

4. How frequent does your CCTV system break down?

Frequent breakdowns of surveillance cameras translate to high operational and maintenance costs. The reasons for the break down may range from an aging system to unreliable equipment. If the downtimes become too frequent, it would be advisable to upgrade to a new system.
