Typically, firmware updates come as quickly as problems can be found and solved. While it is not common for CCTV firmware to update automatically yet like your phone or computer, each of these sites makes it a priority to be thorough in testing each product for flaws, catching any potential risks, and even improving what’s already considered good to go. Updating your CCTV firmware regularly and checking for updates on a constant basis is entirely recommended.

What is firmware?

Firmware is a program built into hardware like flash ROMs and can be an example of a basic input/output system or BIOS. In the case of CCTV firmware, it is the programming that allows for functionality from your security cameras and recorders. In IP cameras specifically, the programming is found in the microprocessor and allows for commands made in the interface to be put into action. CCTV firmware is also responsible for automated functions like algorithms going into noise reduction, autofocus, digital WDR, and more.

What is a firmware update?

Unlike physical products, data constantly needs to be updated to keep up with the modern expectations we have today. This happens on two fronts: performance and security. Brands that offer CCTV updates are doing so with the intention of enhancing the capability of their products after the point of purchase and constantly beefing up cybersecurity so malicious parties are regularly kept at bay. Whereas if your system is entirely off the grid, you won’t necessarily have much to worry about, it is a really good idea to consider CCTV firmware updates for your system so that you can enjoy it at another level while keeping it locked against hackers.

How do I update my camera's firmware?

Whether through your recorder or computer, it is easy to update each of your security cameras. Typically, you will need to toggle through the menus and find where the CCTV firmware of each device is stored. Then reference the current firmware on the sites above, downloading which is higher than yours currently. Download the CCTV firmware onto your camera (if it is not automated) and then wait until the camera or system restarts completely. The firmware should now be updated.
