Cleaning security camera

What tools can be used to clean the lens of my camera? I own an integrated security system by Optimum security,a retail security services. I have heard that some cameras have an automatic triggered water jet whenever it gets dirty. How do I clean my camera? What tools would ensure cleaning those sensitive components of my camera? I have often heard the police remind businesses and homeowners to clean their security camera lenses and maintain their equipment to help fight crime. Some cleaners are engineered with cleaner head, a 30' extension pole and a machine washable replacement mitt. I need suggestions for streak free cleaning for both indoor and outdoor cameras. It should ensure the safety of the electronic system. I tried using a can of compressed air to blow air on the lens for cleaning dust and dirt accumulated on the surface. All suggestions are welcome.

This is an interesting question, and one I have had, too. I hope someone has some good ideas.

What I have done in the past is use those pre-moistened lens wipes. I get them at Walmart. And they are cheap. However, I have found they dont do well on fingerprint (oily) stains. That's why I am hoping someone will give some advice. Cleaning glass in my business, I use ordinary window cleaner. I use a brand called Cinch only because it smells nice and works well. If something needs detail work I use Q Tips to get into small places.

I'd take it to a specialist but then again I'm not brave enough to mess with those finicky electronic gizmos!

Is it a dome camera or just a small lens? In theory dome coverings should be waterproof? Either way, a long pole with something attached seems like the simplest solution
