Power Fluctuations or Failures
Modern Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) incorporate line conditioning to ensure delivery of clean, uninterrupted power to mission-critical security devices. Some feature fire alarms, intrusion video, access control, and intercoms to enhance security and stability. In older buildings or finicky power areas, you need a UPS with line conditioning to assure you do not damage the equipment from power surges. However, line conditioning alone does not guarantee that your UPS will perform during power fluctuations. Even in areas with newer buildings and modern grids, power surges and losses can disrupt your UPS and other devices.
