Summer in the Garden State

This is the weekend that many residents of the tri-state area look forward to. The official summer kick off on the Jersey Shore! Central Jersey Security Cameras has been busy working with home owners and businesses all around the Jersey Shore. We have installed full home security systems consisting of home security cameras and alarm systems, homes with full home automation, home surround sound, home theaters and outdoor audio systems. Over the cold winter months, our crews have worked hard keeping the coast of the Jersey Shore safe and secure for these customers…

Asbury Park, NJ

 asburyOver the past few years it’s been nice to see Asbury Park once again become a growing summer hot spot on the Jersey Shore, in fact it was just named the 2nd best beach in the world! Central Jersey Security Cameras has been helping home owners and business owners secure their properties before the summer rush. One thing we have enjoyed over the winter months is seeing the beautiful old homes come back to life in this town. Home owners have been installing the Ultrasync alarm panel in their homes and in their Asbury Park business. In addition to Ultrasync alarm systems, many residents and business owners are making their homes and business secure with surveillance systems. Asbury Park police have now asked home owners and businesses to register their surveillance cameras with the police department as a tool to keep crime down in this area. Many New Jersey towns, such as East Brunswick and Edison, have already adopted this program and now Asbury Park is looking to become one of the 1st Jersey Shore towns to do this.

Belmar, NJ

 

belmarBelmar is known as one of our beloved beachy towns here in New Jersey. Belmar has cameras facing towards the beach known as the ‘surfers view’ which is very useful to the surfers and the beach goers. You get to see what’s going on before taking the ride down the shore. This has become so popular that other beach towns are starting to catch on as well. Central Jersey Security Cameras has held a presence in Belmar over the winter. We have done security camera installations at the hotels that tourists would vacation at as well as the condo’s and homes of our locals that like to make themselves at home down the shore for the summer months. Central Jersey Security Cameras has helped to keep the business owners at ease and their patrons safe by upgrading and maintaining their security systems as well.

Spring Lake, NJ

 

welcome-to-spring-lakeA beautiful town in New Jersey filled with many pristine summer homes and cute shops and cafes to visit along the shore. Many of the shops in the business district have now added surveillance to their business.Home owners in the area have found that using their security cameras have been a great tool to let them know what’s going on with the weather before they go down to the shore for the weekend or they enjoy the ease of checking on these homes when they can not be there. This past week Central Jersey Security Cameras has worked with the Spring Lake Manor, a popular wedding/banquet facility, getting their surveillance system updated for the busy summer season.Home owners in Spring Lake have utilized alarm systems Central Jersey Security Cameras have installed by using the feature on the

Ultrasync alarm that allows the home owner to open doors remotely or to give someone only limited access to their home by only allowing their code to work on their alarm certain times of the day assigned by the home owner. For example, if a home owner has a weekly care taker to come into the home at 12pm every Thursday, that will be the only time that their code will work in the alarm panel. This is a great feature that protects you from having to hand out keys to your home that can be lost and protects you from having staff come back to your home that no longer are employed by you in the future.

Point Pleasant, NJ

Point Pleasant Beach -1Point Pleasant is a year-round family town. Many, when they think of this town, think it’s a fun summer family destination. As this is true, there is also a large growing population of this town that is now filled with families year-round. In fact, the high school was just added to the list of great high schools in New Jersey. With the growth of Point Pleasant becoming a year-round primary residence for many home owners more of the businesses in Point Pleasant are now operating year-round as well. Central Jersey Security Cameras has worked with numerous home owners over the years installing home security. We are proud to say that has now expended to customers on the Jenkinson’s Boardwalk and businesses in the Point Pleasant Boro. We have installed security camera systems and alarm systems in boutique stores, doctors’ offices and restaurants.

Long Branch, NJ

 long-branch-pier-village-modern-shopping-area-nj-33650712Another town that has remodeled itself along the shore of New Jersey is Long Branch. Pier Village in Long Branch is filled with restaurants and shops that overlook the ocean and was the beginning of the rebuild of this sea side town. Central Jersey Security Cameras has installed surveillance cameras in restaurants, liquor stores, marinas and for home owners in the area. In addition to surveillance cameras, we have also installed Ultrasync alarm panels in many of these locations to provide our customers with dual protection of both security cameras and security alarms.

Seaside, NJ

 DSC_0345To many, Seaside Heights would be looked at as the party that never ends. With the popularity of the “Jersey Shore”, this town was made even more of a party town and brought to life more of the Seaside party scene.  Yes, Seaside is home to many of the bars and clubs that would attract us all summer long, but it does consist of much more than that. Seaside Heights is home to one of the infamous boardwalk’s that many businesses run on. As a business owner, the merchandise these boardwalk stores sell is of high value and they are not open all year round like a typical business would be. Much like the businesses, there are also many residents that have their summer homes and beach houses in Seaside Heights. As one of those residents, wouldn’t it be convenient to be able to check in on your summer home all throughout the year without taking the trip down the shore? If the answer is yes, give Central Jersey Security Cameras a call.

A second part to Seaside, NJ is Seaside Park. Seaside Park is filled with family friendly beaches and rental homes for the summer season. Many of the Seaside Park rental home owners have had Central Jersey Security Cameras install exterior cameras to the homes to watch that the homes are being kept in good shape during the times they are being rented. These surveillance cameras will also become the evidence of what take places around the property if there are damages to the property.

Island Beach State Park, NJ

island beach Island Beach Park is right past Seaside Park and is a beautiful state park that Central Jersey Security Cameras has had the pleasure to work at. We have over the years worked installing cameras in and around the toll booths as you enter the park and our staff has even enjoyed a few company outings at this beach. On your way from Seaside Park to Island Beach, there is a small area of homes on mid-way beach. These bungalow homeowners have been installing security cameras to watch what happens around their homes. Many of them use their surveillance systems to check on weather damages throughout the winter when storms come up the coast. The same systems help these homeowners monitor when they are not there in the summer months and possibly rent out their midway bungalows, that their tenants are caring for their homes the way it should be.

Brick, NJ

 brickOften Brick is a forgotten beach town. Many of the year-round residents like to keep it that way and it’s not a big summer Benny town like many of its nearby Point Pleasant. Brick is a town that runs along the coast of New Jersey and comes inland and touches parts of Lakewood and Howell. Bick is filled with family homes, marinas, and restaurants. Central Jersey Security Cameras has installed cameras around marinas in Brick to help the marina owners keep an eye on the marina all day and night with the line intrusion feature. Line crossing detection or intrusion detection is a function of your DVR, NVR or IP camera. What it does is instantly detect any motion in a certain “set”, set by you. It will send immediate alerts to your smart device directly from the DVR, NVR or IP camera. This is a function that homeowners enjoy having too because it will send the alerts to your phone that you set when your children arrive home or when your mail is delivered.

 

Mantoloking, NJ

DID YOU KNOW CARBON MONOXIDE IS THE SILENT KILLER?!

AS TEMPERATURES DROP, CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING RISK RISES!

Carbon monoxide cannot be detected by humans without the help of a detector. Did you know that one of the most dangerous things that can hurt you and your loved ones can be hiding right underneath your nose?! By definition, carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and a tasteless gas formed when a compound containing carbon burns incompletely because there is not enough oxygen. This gas is deadly to both animals and humans. Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer” because it is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non- irritating.

Homes that are completely powered by electricity do not have problems with carbon monoxide. The deadly gas is only a potential threat to individuals who heat their homes or appliances with natural gas or another type of fossil fuel. Also, during power outages in the winter, some people bring gasoline powered generators inside. This is NOT a very good idea! By having a gasoline powered generator inside your home, you are exposing yourself to carbon monoxide, which explains the spike in carbon monoxide poisonings in the winter. During power outages, people are more likely to use carbon-monoxide-producing heating and cooking equipment as well as generators that may be situated close to vents, which can draw gas into the home. You may think you are keeping the family nice and warm, but you are exposing them to carbon monoxide. Keep appliances in good working order, and use them safely. Have them serviced regularly by a qualified and registered professional. Ask your utility company about yearly checkups for all gas appliances.

A kitchen stove was found to be one source of the leak in this article and the heating system is also being checked. The impacted apartment is part of a 5-unit complex. Firefighters said all units had missing or deactivated carbon monoxide detectors. There were no working smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.

THE “SILENT KILLER”

If the early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are ignored, a person may lose consciousness and be unable to escape the danger. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. It has no smell, no taste, and no sound. Neither people nor animals can tell when they are breathing it, but it can be fatal.

CARBON MONOXIDE STATISTICS

TX-6310-01-1_1_
What goes under the radar every single year is that over 20,000 people who are exposed to carbon monoxide and survive. There are long-lasting health issues when you are exposed to carbon monoxide over a long period time. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said about 430 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning each year and 50,000 are forced to seek medical care. 94 percent of CO poisonings occur in residential properties. The highest number of carbon monoxide related deaths occur in the winter months: December, January, or February. Given 374 carbon monoxide deaths and a total U.S. population of 319 million, the mortality rate from carbon monoxide poisoning is 1.2 deaths per one million Americans. 19 states, representing 41% of the U.S. population, had enacted regulations requiring carbon monoxide alarms in at least one major category of residence. Still, relying on people voluntarily using the alarms isn’t working – the CDC reports that only 30% of American homes have functioning carbon monoxide alarms.
Conclusions: Numbers of deaths and death rates, both accidental and intentional, due to carbon monoxide poisoning significantly declined in the United States due to enacting required residential carbon monoxide alarms.

CAUSES

You may be exposed to unsafe levels of carbon monoxide by:
• Using poorly maintained or unvented heating equipment.
• Improperly vented natural gas appliances like stoves or water heaters.
• Using a gas stove, grill, or oven to heat the home.
• Clogged chimneys or blocked heating exhaust vents can stop carbon monoxide from escaping.
• Cooking with a charcoal or gas grill inside the home or other enclosure.
• Using a propane camp stove, heater, or light inside a tent.
• Running vehicles in garages or other enclosed spaces. Leaving a car in a closed garage with its engine running can produce deadly amounts of carbon monoxide within 10 minutes.
• Running generators or gas-powered tools indoors or outside near windows, doors, or vents.
• Being near boat engine exhaust outlets.
• Fumes from certain paint removers and cleaning fluids can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
• House or building fires.
• Smoking cigarettes causes blood levels of carbon monoxide to rise.
Products that contain methylene chloride (dichloromethane) should be handled with care, because methylene chloride turns into carbon monoxide when it is breathed in.

Do you park your vehicle in the garage?

3001926700000578-3392647-Parked_The_car_is_able_to_safely_park_in_the_garage_and_stops_wh-m-18_1452473140435
Carbon monoxide is present in the exhaust gases of automobile engines and is very poisonous. Motor vehicles are responsible for 57% of unintentional deaths due to carbon monoxide and were associated with 71% of deaths.

This man was working on a vehicle in his garage when he was overcome with fumes. The home was not registered or equipped with a carbon monoxide detector as required by law.

Do you have small children that live in your home? How about elderly parents or grandparents?

Two-boys-fighting-over-toys-56799db33df78ccc154810d2
Did you know they are the most susceptible to carbon monoxide poisoning? Higher death rates were seen among black individuals, small children, and the elderly in winter months and in cold, high-altitude states. All people are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Unborn babies, infants, the elderly, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems are generally more at risk than others.

• Unborn babies. Fetal blood cells take up carbon monoxide more readily than adult blood cells do. This makes unborn babies more susceptible to harm from carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Children. Young children take breaths more frequently than adults do, which may make them more susceptible to carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Older adults. Older people who experience carbon monoxide poisoning may be more likely to develop brain damage.
Carbon monoxide poisoning can be especially dangerous for people who are sleeping or intoxicated. People may have irreversible brain damage or even be killed before anyone realizes there’s a problem. Carbon monoxide detectors can be life saving!
old-people
In this tragedy, a 72-year-old woman was found unresponsive in her home along with a 5-year-old girl. Firefighters found the stove still hot to the touch and measured the highest carbon monoxide levels in the kitchen. There were no carbon monoxide detectors present and in this case a detector may have saved a life.

SYMPTOMS

Persons with carbon monoxide poisoning often overlook the symptoms.
Signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may include:
• Dull headache
• Weakness
• Dizziness
• Nausea or vomiting
• Shortness of breath
• Confusion
• Blurred vision
• Loss of consciousness

Undetected exposure can be fatal. If carbon monoxide levels are high enough, you may become unconscious or die. Exposure to moderate and elevated levels of carbon monoxide over extended periods of time has also been linked with increased risk of heart disease.
How is carbon monoxide harmful to the body? Carbon monoxide is harmful when breathed because it displaces oxygen in the blood and deprives the heart, brain, and other vital organs of oxygen. Copious amounts of carbon monoxide can overcome you in minutes without warning—causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin over 200 times more easily than oxygen does, so if carbon monoxide is present, oxygen will not be able to find space to get into the hemoglobin. This is because the space is occupied with carbon monoxide instead. As a result, parts of the body will be starved of oxygen, and the affected parts will die. The human body needs oxygen, but it has no use for carbon monoxide. If we breathe in carbon monoxide, it provides no benefit, but it deprives the blood of oxygen.

The warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning can be subtle. But the condition is a life-threatening medical emergency. If you think you or someone you’re with may have carbon monoxide poisoning, get into fresh air, and seek emergency medical care. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be reversed if caught in time.

This couple had only lived in their home for two and a half weeks when they were hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning. The husband was treated in a hyperbaric chamber to replace the dangerous level of carbon monoxide in his blood with oxygen.

PREVENTION

Alarms_Graphic2
If household appliances are well serviced and used safely, they should produce negligible quantities of carbon monoxide gas. Using old appliances, and not servicing them frequently, leads to a higher risk of carbon monoxide emission. Keep appliances in good working order, and use them safely. Have them serviced regularly by a qualified and registered professional. Ask your utility company about yearly checkups for all gas appliances, including your furnace. This is also an appropriate time to check the batteries in all your detectors and to check with your security company to make sure everything is up and running properly. It is important to be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. An alarm should be placed in every sleeping area in the house and should be checked regularly.

Simple precautions can help prevent the leakage of carbon monoxide & carbon monoxide poisoning:
• Install carbon monoxide detectors. Put one in the hallway near each sleeping area in your house. Check the batteries every time you check your smoke detector batteries — at least twice a year. If the alarm sounds, leave the house and call 911 or the fire department. Carbon monoxide detectors are also available for motor homes and boats.
• Make sure all rooms are well ventilated and that vents are not blocked. Be especially careful in well-insulated environments.
• Open the garage door before starting your car. Never leave your car running in your garage. Be particularly cautious if you have an attached garage. Leaving your car running in a space attached to the rest of your house is never safe, even with the garage door open. Do not leave any other type of gasoline-powered motor running in a garage at all. For example, motorbikes, cars, or lawn mowers.
• Service the exhaust pipe in a motor vehicle every year.
• If the tailgate of a vehicle is open and the engine is running, open the doors and windows too.
• Use gas appliances as recommended. Never use a gas stove or oven to heat your home. Use portable gas camp stoves outdoors only. Use fuel-burning space heaters only when someone is awake to monitor them, and doors or windows are open to provide fresh air. Don’t run a generator in an enclosed space, such as the basement or garage. Never use a generator within 20 feet of a window, door, or vent. Be careful when using gas-powered tools and equipment inside rooms. And always wear a mask when using products that contain methylene chloride.
• Keep your fuel-burning appliances and engines properly vented. These include:
o Space heaters
o Furnaces
o Charcoal grills
o Cooking ranges
o Water heaters
o Fireplaces
o Portable generators
o Wood-burning stoves
o Car and truck engines
• If you have a fireplace, keep it in good repair. Have chimneys and flues swept thoroughly regularly by a fully-qualified sweep, at least once a year.
• Keep vents and chimneys unblocked during remodeling. Check that they aren’t covered by tarps or debris.
• Do repairs before returning to the site of an incident. If carbon monoxide poisoning has occurred in your home, it’s critical to find and repair the source of the carbon monoxide before you stay there again. Your local fire department or utility company may be able to help.

This tragedy was the result of a collapsed clay liner inside the chimney that blocked the gas exhaust, causing the gas buildup in a multi-family home.
http://www.nj.com/middlesex/index.ssf/2018/01/blocked_chimney_caused_fatal_levels_of_carbon_mono.html

The CDC advises every household to install a carbon monoxide alarm. Some detectors have a digital readout. Others give out a loud, high-pitched sound when levels of carbon monoxide pass a certain limit. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, long-term exposure to 1 to 70 ppm of CO will not normally cause any harm, but people with heart problems may have chest pain. Levels of over 70 ppm may cause noticeable symptoms, and if they reach above 150 to 200 ppm, they may cause disorientation, unconsciousness, and death.

Installing security cameras in the homes of your elderly parents and/or grandparents to be able to check in on them is starting to sound like a great idea now, isn’t it?
Not only can these security cameras protect your elderly loved ones from intruders, but they reek the benefits of much more than just that. We all think of security cameras to keep our homes safe from intruders or to watch our children at home with the babysitters/nannies, but have you ever thought of how they protect the elderly as well? By installing cameras in the homes of your elderly parents and/or grandparents, you will be able to check in and SEE them and know what they are actually up to. Do you worry about your elderly loved ones when you are not physically with them? Not only will having security cameras give you that peace of mind knowing what your parents or grandparents are doing, but it can also be lifesaving for the elderly! With security cameras placed in the interior of the home, you can watch mom in the kitchen cooking and keep checking in that she is still safe around the stove. You can check in on the camera located by the steps and be sure dad did not fall as he has become more unstable in his walking.

Have you been thinking of having a home health aide come to the home, but you are unsure of the treatment your loved one will receive from them? We can set up nanny cams in their home, so this way you can be sure your loved ones are being treated the way they should be. Does your elderly loved one already have a home care giver that is supposed to come each day? Would you like to know when they come and go each day? With the line crossing detection, or intrusion detection feature, you can now know exactly each time they come and go, and rest assured your loved one is getting the care they deserve.

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.

Would you like to know every time a door is opened in the home? Many families in New Jersey try to keep their loved ones in the home with them, but unfortunately you cannot be everywhere all the time. With security cameras placed at your elderly loved one’s home or in your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around the home. Would you want to know about every time someone enters or exits the home? Take advantage of the intrusion detection features that all our Central Jersey Security Cameras systems come with.

Not only will security cameras help you keep an eye on the older generation, you may also need to know when the kids get home from school or even if the delivery person is at your front door, so you would set up a virtual intrusion area at your front door. 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.

Security cameras in the home to keep the elderly safe in their own home..

keeping elderly safe

We all think of security cameras to keep our homes safe from intruders or to watch our children at home with babysitters/ nannies but have you ever thought of how they protect the elderly as well? Installing cameras in homes of elderly parents to be able to check in and SEE them will not only give you peace of mind but can be lifesaving! With Security Cameras placed in the interior of the home you can watch mom in the kitchen cooking and checking in that she is still safe around the stove. You can check in on the camera by the steps and be sure dad did not fall as he has become more unstable in his walking. Would you like an alert every time your loved one opens the front door?
Have you been thinking of having a home health aide come to the home but you are unsure of the treatment your loved one will get from them? We can set up nanny cams in their home so you can be sure your loved ones are being treated the way they should be. With today’s technology the possibilities are endless. To get your loved one protected call Central Jersey Security Cameras and we can help you work out a plan that fits the needs of your elderly loved one within a budget and without becoming intrusive in their lives.
