CCTV lenses are specially coated to prevent light reflection. Your home or business security system is an investment: you put money into the system to keep your assets safe. If you have installed CCTV cameras around your home or business, then you know that they are useless if the lens is dirty or dirty. A dirty or dirty lens distorts the quality of the image and makes identification of all intruders almost impossible. Take care when cleaning your CCTV lens to avoid damaging its special coating that prevents light reflection. 1 Use a can of compressed air and blowing air to the lens to remove loose dirt or debris. If your CCTV camera device moves remotely to cover an area, you will have to turn the power off to the camera so that it does not move on you. You can spray the lens while the camera is mounted. 2 Clean the lens gently with a microfiber cloth available at an optometrist or eye-wear office store. These cloths are soft and will not remove the special coating on the CCTV lens. 3 Apply a small cleaner CCTV trifle to the microfiber cloth and clean the CCTV lens. Check with your local security provider for cleaner options. One option is C-Clear, a vacuum cleaner that fills small scratches, prevents fog as well as static. When choosing a CCTV vacuum cleaner, be sure to ask whether or not the solution will remove special coatings. VIDEO: HOW TO CLEAN THE CAMERA AND AVOID THE FUNGUS ON THE LENS
4 Breathe in the lens as an alternative to using cleaner CCTV and wipe it carefully with the microfiber cloth. Moisture should be sufficient to remove stains and dirt.
