April Showers Bring... Security Failure?


April 8, 2014

Ensure your security equipment stays dry to avoid short circuits and compromised security.

Obviously we have learned that water and electricity do not mix very well. The same is true for most security equipment: with the exception of outdoor-rated equipment, it doesn’t like to get wet. The reason we want to discuss this is because, now that the weather is warming up, humidity levels are rising and basements and other areas where security equipment is commonly tucked away sometimes develop high levels of moisture. Therefore, if you have security equipment that is stored in a non-climate-controlled environment, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the area. If you start to see condensation or water seeping in, you will want to dry the area around the equipment boxes and implement measures to reduce moisture. For example, adding a dehumidifier to the area or even a small fan to keep air gently moving can help prevent water from getting onto the equipment and causing it to short out. Feel free to contact us for more information or advice.
