There are 5 simple ways that can help you to check whether a CCTV camera is working or not.
How to Check a CCTV Camera is Working or Not?
1. For a PTZ camera, you will see this camera rotate continuously when powered on, at the same time, you will hear a distinct buzz when it’s rotating. If you have set up the tour function of the PTZ camera, you can see it moving constantly when it’s in working status.

2. All MVTEAM CCTV cameras have IR LEDs for night vision. You can see small red lights around the lens of the CCTV camera in the dark, when this CCTV camera is on. You can cover the light sensor to block the light falling into CCTV camera. If you see the lights turn red, it means that the CCTV camera is on.
