UPS Deployment Statistics

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Jan 23, 2012

Providing backup power for equipment is generally accepted as best practice in surveillance systems. An unexpected power loss can result in lost video or create issues when servers or DVRs are shut down unexpectedly. However, UPSs add cost. In small systems, even a small UPS may not be afforded by the budget. UPSs needed to power large systems with multiple servers, PoE switches, and power supplies can be large and expensive, as well. In order to see what our integrator members are installing in the field, we asked 100 integrators: "How often do you use a UPS for your VMS/DVR/NVR?"
