Can Your Electronic Equipment Survive the Cold?


January 24, 2012

You may be surprised to discover the REAL enemy of electronics....

Many of our video surveillance customers have situations where their equipment needs to be stored in outdoor, unheated rooms, and they often ask us about extremely COLD days like we are currently having. The answer often surprises people in that digital video recorders and other electronic equipment are perfectly safe and will run completely normally on days this cold. Why? Because the machines actually produce their own heat, so cold is not the enemy in this case. HOT summer days are the time to keep an eye – and an extra fan – on the machines. Contact Lappen Security for tips on maximizing your security through proper care of your equipment.
