With all IP connected devices, manufacturers identify cyber vulnerabilities or software bugs and address them with patches in their firmware. It is always “best practise” to update the firmware on any IP device before or at installation to avoid any cyber or software issues that have been identified.
Note: HSS offer maintenance to all sites with Security and CCTV systems and as part of the service HSS can apply the latest available firmware to all network connected devices including cameras to safe guard your network security.
