CCTV Maintenance

CCTV Maintenance

 

Elite FM can carry out servicing of your CCTV system annually as part of a maintenance contract or as a one-off service visit. Our fully trained engineers will prepare a report detailing their findings along with any suggestions to improve system performance.

As part of our maintenance contract if your CCTV System develops a fault, an engineer’s visit will be arranged as soon as possible. If you are under a maintenance contract the cost of a call-out is charged at a lower rate than if you were a non-contract customer.
