Having a safe, reliable source of power is crucial for the continuous operation of any electrically powered piece of security equipment, and for the integrity of the overall installation. Given that the electricity supply incoming from Eskom is often unreliable, it is imperative that security installers make adequate provisioning against disturbances to that supply.
