Ensure Security Data Records with Periodic Checks on DVRs


September 27, 2011

Unforeseen circumstances can cause DVRs to lock up and stop recording.

Check your security system’s Digital Video Recorder (DVR) frequently to ensure it is recording. A "frozen" DVR is often the result of a fluctuation in the electricity running to it, and can be easily fixed on your own. If your DVR has stopped recording, the first thing to try is to completely power down your DVR, wait a few seconds with it off, and then power it back up. Once you have done that, come back about 10 minutes later and check to see that it is recording again. If it is, you should be good to go; if not, give one of our trained technicians a call for further assistance.


Backing up the data for your access control system can save you hours of work and reduce system downtime.
