Can I Use My LCD TV In A Security System?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

 Samsung strongly recommends against using a regular LCD TV in a security system. In most security systems, the televisions used are focused on one scene or image for hours at a time. Regular LCD TVs are susceptible to screen burn-in if the same image is on the screen unchanged for more than two or three hours. Consequently, a regular LCD TV used in a security system would suffer severe, and most likely irreversible, screen burn-in. Screen burn-in is not covered by your Samsung warranty. Also, TVs or monitors designed for security systems provide specific security functions that are not available on regular TVs.
