What if a camera needs re-focusing, cleaning or re-positioning?

Contact the EduTech Support Center Help Desk.  Maintenance contract hours are renewed each year.  BOCES has staff to attempt this, but often a Frontrunner tech must come and do the work as cameras are located precarious locations plus they know how to check it correctly and to make other camera adjustments if necessary.
