Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Make sure of the power connection to the surveillance system first of all... if they are rechargeables, they won't last long without it.

If they are non-rechargeable batteries, then the batteries that came with them are defective, or that you put in them are defective.

If the power connection is verified, then the system is defective in some way. It should be serviced under warranty, or even returned to the store or vendor as defective.
