By now, you must be familiar with the working and features of your video intercom system. As you enjoy the incredible security benefits, here are a few maintenance tips to ensure that your device is in top form for a long time to come.
1. Secure your home internet network
Both the Eurovigil I See 400 and the Eurovigil Way Kit video door phones use your home Wi-Fi network for operation. As you can see, ultimately the security of these devices depends on the security of your home wifi network.
If possible, you can use a separate dedicated wifi network for your home intercom system. Else if you are using the main home wifi network, then ensure that you protect the network with a strong password. If you give out the password of your network to friends and other guests who visit, make sure to change the password frequently, to keep it secure.
2. Protect the outdoor unit
While the outdoor unit is durable and can withstand dust and slight moisture, make sure you take the necessary precautions to keep it protected. Ensure that the outdoor unit is not directly exposed to water, rain and strong sunlight.
3. Dusting and cleaning indoor and outdoor units
Don’t let dust and other dirt accumulate on the indoor and outdoor of your video intercom system. If the outdoor unit is dusty, then the image quality of the video feed gets poor. Make sure to frequently dust the microphones, speakers and video lens using a soft cloth. Avoid using harsh household cleaners and other detergents. If you find it extremely dirty, dip a soft cotton cloth in water, wring it well and give the units a wipe-down.
4. Keep critters away
Bugs, spiders and other insects can get into your device and interfere with the working. To avoid this spray bug repellent and insecticide on the areas around the video doorbell. Make sure that these bug repellents don’t get in directly into the lens, microphone and other sensitive parts of the device.
Alternatively, you can use natural repellants like eucalyptus, peppermint, and citrus oils to prevent spider webs on the exterior of the video doorbell. Regular cleaning with a soft-bristled brush helps to keep the outdoor unit clean and free from cobwebs.
5. Power plugs
Use only the power plug adapters that come with your video intercom phone. It’s advised not to use any third-party power adapters as it can short the entire system and damage your device. Also, when the system is not in use, make sure to remove the power plugs from the socket.
6. Don’t disassemble the unit on your own
If you notice any problems in the device, don’t disassemble it on your own. You could violate the warranty and end up damaging the device. So, make sure to call Eurovigil maintenance team for support and assistance.
7. Keep the firmware up to date
