How Secure is Your Business at the Jersey Shore?

1

With the Summer months quickly approaching, be sure to keep your place of business on the Jersey shore safe and secure. With the beaches, boardwalks, arcades, and restaurants our state has to offer it’s no surprise that it gets much more populated here during the Summer months. People from all over travel here to New Jersey to spend their Summer breaks and enjoy our wonderful weather and nice beaches. Beach towns see thousands of people every day in the Summer which can be stressful for those who own a business down the shore. Let us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras help in ensuring that your place of business is as safe and protected as possible, even when you aren’t there.

Why should I have cameras at my business on the shore?

There are many reasons why installing security cameras at your business is beneficial to you and your employees. You will be able to keep an eye on your employees and the people entering your business throughout the day even when you aren’t there. People tend to let loose during the warmer months and spend a lot of their free time at the shore. Our beaches and boardwalks are a huge attraction for people of all ages. Many of our boardwalks here in New Jersey offer arcades, places to eat, boardwalk games, rides, and several bars. Many people spend their weekends at the boardwalks for a good time and to grab a few drinks with friends. Alcohol can alter people’s decision-making skills and can cause people to act in rowdy and irresponsible ways. Make sure your business and the people in it are as safe and secure as possible. Not only are security cameras beneficial during the Summer months, they will give you peace of mind during the Winter as well. Of course, the boardwalks aren’t as busy once the colder months come, but you will be able to make sure your business is safe. You should make sure your business is being watched around the clock all year long. With the installation of security cameras, you will be able to capture if any theft, violence or rowdy behavior is happening in your business, thus allowing you to contact the proper authorities. Let our technicians here at Central Jersey Security Cameras help you in deciding which cameras best suit your business to keep it safe and secure.

What is the best option for me to secure my business?

With the installation of security cameras, you will be able to keep an eye on your business even when you aren’t there. Trying to keep track of every single person who enters your workplace can be overwhelming and almost impossible. Let Central Jersey Security Cameras help! Our well-trained technicians will help you in deciding which of our products will work best for your place of business and help in choosing the best placement of the cameras while also meeting your budget and your needs. Our NVR, DVR, or IP cameras all have a feature called line crossing detection, or intrusion detection. Line crossing detection instantly detects any motion within a certain set area. This area is personally set by you and is only a virtual line that you created, therefore it is not visible to the human eye. If a motion is detected in the area that you have set, you will automatically receive an alert right to your smart phone. Make sure you know who is at or around your place of business before, during, and after hours. The technical support personnel are available in our offices daily to answer any questions you may have about the functionality of your system.

Stores and businesses use a wide variety of cameras to monitor the people entering and exiting their buildings. These cameras are used to reduce theft and to improve the overall safety for everyone in the building. Not only do business owners install security cameras to keep an eye on their merchandise, they also install them to keep an eye on their employees. Unfortunately, not all dangers to your business come from just customers. 64% of all small businesses fall victim to employee theft, and fraud. Many losses that come from employee theft are cash losses, with $20,000 being the average loss. Having security cameras in your place of business will deter people from stealing and will allow you to contact the proper authorities in the case that an individual does steal or is involved in risky behavior in or around your business. Let our technicians here at Central Jersey Security Cameras install cameras pointing at your registers to ensure the cash going in and out of your store daily is being properly handled. Security equipment such as locks, video intercoms, access control, and security cameras can help act as barriers or even a deterrent to crime. With the use of personalized ID’s and key fobs, it makes it nearly impossible to enter the vicinity of your office space without proper clearance. Technology like this is what gives business owners peace of mind and helps in ensuring that their business is safe and being well taken care of when they aren’t present. Keeping your business safe and protected can be a stressful job. Let Central Jersey Security Cameras can give you peace of mind, call us today and have your business evaluated for a security surveillance system.

2Here are a few tips to help reduce risky behavior at your business:

  • Conduct a background check on your employees
  • Install an access control system allowing employees to enter only areas needed for them to do their jobs
  • Place security cameras around areas where money is exchanged or kept
  • Make daily bank deposits to minimize the amount of cash on the premises
  • Close and lock doors to areas where valuable products or supplies are stored. Use fencing and locked gates to protect equipment and supplies kept outdoors

Can the cameras view clearly at night?

An infrared security camera has infrared lighting (light from a different region of the electromagnetic spectrum than we normally use to see) installed around the outside of the lens of the camera. This lighting allows the camera to capture a good image with no light. With a little bit of light (called low light) the infrared camera can capture a picture that looks just like daytime. Keep in mind that even at nighttime there is normally some light from the moon, stars, or street lights which will allow the camera to capture a clear image.

Infrared cameras do not do well in outdoor housings because the infrared light reflects off the glass of the housing. Some people get acceptable results if the camera is flush with the glass. An alternative solution is to use a day/night camera which has an extra sensitive imaging chip that allows it to capture a good picture in low light situations without using infrared lighting. This works well for example if there are street lights outside or an exterior light that can be left on at night. Cameras without infrared light will not capture an image without any light.

The level of light required to capture a good picture is referred to as a camera’s lux, the lower the lux the better the camera can see in the dark. For example, a camera with 0.003 lux is better than a camera with 0.2 lux. Infrared cameras are also compared by how far they can see in total darkness. We sell cameras that see in total darkness over 120 feet at night. People use infrared security cameras for businesses that have the lights out at night (in case of break-ins) or for outside night time viewing.

We also offer a variety of alarm systems, some of which are listed below:

Security Alarm System Keypads
Keypads are an important part of your security system. They allow you to arm the system with a secured code. They can be placed wherever you need them most and are easy to use. Keypads feature emergency buttons that allow you to call for help immediately. Back lit buttons allow you to see your keypad when the power is out.

Door and Window Sensor
According to the NBFAA, 56% of burglars enter through a door, another 23% through the first-floor window. Door and window sensors are placed in these areas of vulnerability. When the contact is broken, the alarm is triggered.

Motion Detectors
Motion detectors are triggered when someone walks in view of the detector. If intruders enter your business through a door or window that is not protected by a sensor, the motion detector will act as a trap ensuring they don’t stay in the building for long. Motion detectors can be turned off when you are on the premises while your windows and doors can remain secured.

Remote Entry Key Fob
Convenient and easy to use remote entry key fobs allow you to arm and disarm your system with a push of a button as far as 500 feet from your business. The key fob also features a panic button which allows you to contact help in case of emergency.

Alarm Sirens
An alarm siren provides peace of mind for you and acts as a deterrent for would-be intruders.

When choosing a security camera company for all your businesses needs you need to make sure you are choosing a company that has training in installs in business and store settings. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras our technicians have gone through extensive training for installing cameras and alarm systems. When installing security cameras, you want to make sure you are choosing a company that will come to each location you have and preform a safety audit to best meet the needs of your facility. A safety audit should be done at least once a year to ensure that your systems are working properly and still meeting all your facility’s needs. The audit of the facility is not just limited to security cameras and alarms but should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another helpful tool when choosing a trusted company that is going to install your security systems is to look them up on the Better Business Bureau. You want to make sure the business you are choosing is BBB accredited so you can view the company’s track record. Central Jersey Security Camera will come work with you company and their budget to ensure your place of business is safe and secure. Our staff is background checked and well trained in the installation of all aspects of security systems. Central Jersey Security Cameras is Better Business Bureau Accredited A+.

10 Benefits of owning a security system for your place of business and home:

  1. Deter criminals
  2. Prevent theft
  3. Improve productivity
  4. Reduce liability
  5. Protect intellectual property
  6. Manage remotely
  7. Enhance customer experience
  8. Streamline operations
  9. Validate alarms
  10. Deliver peace of mind

Many of our New Jersey business and home owners are installing surveillance systems with line crossing detection. Sure, you’d love to be there and see for yourself, but unfortunately, you cannot be everywhere all the time. With security cameras placed at your business or in your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around your place of business and home right in the palm of your hand. Just like in any place of business, owners often want and need to know how productive their staff is. This also protects the staff from unwarranted, untrue claims that someone may make against your business, once again, it’s all now recorded from the security cameras placed in your business. Not only will security cameras help you keep an eye on your place of business and home, you may also need to know when the midnight delivery you’ve been waiting on for your place business arrives, or maybe there’s an area of your business employees are not supposed to be accessing, so you would set up a virtual intrusion area at your door. Never miss a beat, you can have the line intrusion alerts sent right to your phone.

WHAT IS LINE CROSSING DETECTION?
Line crossing detection, or intrusion detection, is a function of your DVR, NVR or IP camera. What it does is that it instantly detects any motion in a certain “set”, which is a set area that is personally set by you for your alert needs. It will send immediate alerts to your smart device directly from the DVR, NVR  or IP camera. For example, you want to know when someone or something enters your driveway? So, you go into the software of your DVR, NVR or IP camera and start setting up specific areas by drawing lines across the driveway. Of course, these are not visible lines to the human eye since it is only a virtual line or perimeter you have created, but it acts just as good as a virtual tripwire. In essence, what it will do is activate the area when the area or line is breached and send you a notification either directly through the app or to your email, whichever option you choose. You can even have audible alerts right on site through an external siren or right from the DVR or NVR.
You can set this to work on schedules, certain hours during the day, certain days during the week or if you are on vacation and will be away from your home or business and you want to be alerted when someone or something breaches your “set” area or areas. While both High Definition and IP cameras or the use of an NVR in conjunction with IP cameras will both do the job, there is more flexibility with the NVR and IP cameras in terms of having multiple cameras set up for line crossing/intrusion detection. There are also sensitivity settings that do adjust to meet your needs. For example, you may not want to know when a cat or small animal crosses the line, so you would adjust the scale to measure for larger objects.

Just like all other seasons, make sure to lock your doors when you leave the home, check that your cameras and alarms are working properly and make sure your home looks occupied if you leave for an extended period of time. Homes that add an alarm system to their home with security cameras are four times less likely to be victimized. Double up on your home security as well as your security at your place of business!

Businesses without alarms are 4.5 times more likely to be burglarized than those that have an alarm system. They are also four times as likely to be burglarized as homes. Your business is a much more tempting target to burglars than your home. But, burglars don’t like getting caught. Eight in ten convicted burglars said they would look for a security camera or an alarm before attempting a burglary. If they found an on-site surveillance system, 60% said they would seek an alternative target.

 

Here are a couple quick tips that can help reduce burglary at your place of business or home:

  • Clear your entrances and windows of trees and shrubs that block views from the street and/or provide a hiding place for thieves
  • Secure your doors with sturdy deadbolt locks or padlocks
  • Install bars or gates on windows to help prevent them being broken and used as an entry
  • Motion sensor-activated lighting and alarms can also help deter burglars

Today’s alarm systems are more than just a loud shrieking noise when they go off. All of our alarms are either connected to Central Station Monitoring or are set up to send alerts directly to your smart device, or you can even set it up to do both. Having your alarm connected with Central Station Monitoring will alert the proper authorities when the alarm is triggered. There’s no such thing as too much security!
With advances in alarms this past year with the launch of the new Ultra Sync alarm home automation system, you can now not only be alerted when someone is at your home and place of business, but right from the palm of your hand, you can use your smartphone to do much more! Just to name a few key features you can use right from your smartphone:
• You can turn your lights on and off at your home or place of business.
• You can lock and unlock your doors.
• You can control your thermostat.

According to the FBI, there’s a burglary every 12 seconds. Those thefts annually combine for more than $3.1 billion in property and personal loss. So how do burglars get into your business? Six of ten burglaries involve forcible entry, about a third of those were unlawful entries. The rest, a little over six percent, were attempted forcible entries. The primary ways in which they gained access were through open windows or doors or by forcible entry through windows or doors. Only about one in eight burglars reported picking locks or using a key they had previously acquired. Not surprisingly, most commercial burglaries occur at night, weekends or holidays when many businesses aren’t open. What’s more enticing to a burglar than nobody being there to stop them?

 

Unfortunately, not all dangers to your business come from the outside. 64% of all small businesses fall victim to one of the biggest threats, employee theft and fraud. While some and hopefully most of the theft being minor office supplies, that isn’t always the case. Majority of losses that come from employee theft are cash losses, with $20,000 being the average lost. That’s not something a business owner should have to worry about while they aren’t present. Have security cameras installed pointing at the register, this way you can see the cash as it is being handled and know it is going to the proper location and not your employees pockets. Security equipment such as locks, video intercoms, access control and security cameras can help act as barriers or even a deterrent to crime. With the use of personalized ID’s and key fobs, it makes it nearly impossible to enter the vicinity of your office space without proper clearance. Technology like this is what keeps the piece of mind that a business owner needs to operate without any worries. Keeping your business safe and protected can be a job by itself, a stressful one at that. Central Jersey Security Cameras/Jersey Security Solutions can give you peace of mind, call us today and have your business evaluated for a security surveillance system.

Here are a few tips that might help you to reduce your chances of becoming a statistic:

  • Place security cameras around areas where money is exchanged or kept
  • Make daily bank deposits to minimize the amount of cash on the premises
