Is Your Technology Ready for Summer Weather?

June 23, 2020

Touch screens, digital signs, and digital displays, oh my! These business staples can be a great way to gather attention in outdoor spots. However, when it comes to how these technological staples deal with the heat, it all depends on the actions you take as a business owner to take care for them. When it comes to protecting your digital supplies during the summer heat, here’s what to consider:

Always Avoid Direct Sunlight

When it comes to placing your signage, always be mindful of how much sunlight it will be exposed to. Extreme heats can hinder their performance and lead to damage.

Don’t Forget to Power Off

When not in use, shut off your displays and touch screens to give it time to rest. An always going system can produce more heat and has a better chance of overheating or breaking down sooner than it should. 

Know the Signs of Overheating 

Some signs that overheating might be occurring include hot to the touch machines, fast running fans, slowing performance, sudden crashing, or powering off on its own. If your devices are showing any of these signs, it might be time to consider relocating them.
