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.

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

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.

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.

Spring is Coming

Seems like this weekend spring will finally show its face around central New Jersey. The days are getting longer, and everyone seems to start to come outside after the long winter. Everyone is making spring home improvement plans to get their homes ready for summer. One thing we love to do at our home each year is to start planting flowers and shrubs around our property. However, after working for a security company for many years, I know to think twice before I plant anything around my home. Working for Central Jersey Security Cameras over these years has taught me a thing or two about home security and keeping my family safe. Don’t get me wrong I love planting each spring and do add a shrub or two to my home each year, I just now choose where I plant my additions more wisely. I have a home security system on my home with security cameras throughout the perimeter of my home and now when I plant I take into consideration and ask myself “will the shrub I plant ever block my camera’s views as it grows?” I also think about the shrubs and the effect it will have on the lighting around my house. As these shrubs grow, will it affect the lighting around my home and give my yard dark spots that can make it easier for a would-be intruder to come up to my home? Keeping my family and home safe is a priority for me. I run alarm tests on my home alarm system monthly and I make sure my security cameras always have clear views of my home and the surrounding areas. Making sure your equipment is working properly and making sure you do not add shrubs to an area that will block your camera’s views are just a few quick ways that I help keep my family and home safe.

Here are some spring home safety tips:

• Keep your home lit: Even with it staying brighter longer in the spring it is still important to keep your home lit up so a person lurking around our home can be seen.
• Lock your doors: Ensure all your door and window locks around the home are working and are not loose. When you’re out of the house, increase your privacy and security by closing blinds and curtains. This can help deter criminals from looking in your house and coveting your things.
• Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors: Replace any batteries that are dead. If your units are more than 10 years old, it is time to replace them! It’s also a great time to test your alarm system if you have one. There are 5 simple steps which can be found
• Spring can get hot: If you are putting in window air conditioning units this spring, make sure you stabilize and secure the units so that they cannot easily be taken out by a criminal or fall out on their own inviting criminals to your home. If you have central air and cooling, have your system serviced before you begin to use it.

Do you have small children that live in your home? How about elderly parents or grandparents?
With spring comes warmer weather. With warmer weather, the desire to be outside increases. With that being said, you’d naturally want to keep an eye on your elderly loved ones while they sit outside drinking their coffee reading the newspaper. Maybe they even have a green thumb of their own and are out planting in the yard. 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 elderly loved one’s home or in your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around the home right in the palm of your hand.
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, so you would set up a virtual intrusion area at your front door. For your older children that don’t need a sitter, the bus rolls in to drop them off while you’re still at work. Sure, they’re going to want to play outside on their own and you’re going to want to make sure they don’t stray out of the yard and keep an eye on them. Make sure they’re not getting themselves into trouble by having 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.

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. Today’s home alarms 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 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 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.
• You can lock and unlock your doors.
• You can control your thermostat.
Spring is also that time of year where the weather goes from hot to cold, cold to hot. Being able to control your thermostat from your phone is super convenient! Now you’ll have your home set to the right temperature while we battle the weather, not knowing if we need our home to be warmer on the cool days or cooler on the warm days.

SPRING CLEANING

It’s that time of year some of us love and some of us dread. Spring cleaning! While you are doing your spring cleaning in and around your home, this is also an appropriate time to check the batteries in all your detectors and make sure there are no excessive amounts of dust in your detectors. This is also an appropriate time to check with your security company to make sure everything is up and running properly. It is important to be aware of the dangers that follow a faulty detector. As the warm weather creeps up on us we tend to forget to make sure we are safe! In the event of an emergency, you want to be ready for the worst with the best plan in mind starting with the swift notification from an alarm or detector.

Know the difference between a Home Invasion, Robbery, Burglary, Larceny, Theft and Extortion

Home Invasion:
In the dictionary home invasion is defined as; In the United States and many other English speaking countries (though not the United Kingdom) home invasion is an illegal and usually forceful entry to an occupied, private dwelling with intent to commit a violent crime against the occupants, such as robbery, assault, rape, murder, or kidnapping.
Burglary vs Robbery are Often the Most Confused Terms:
Robbery and burglary are both crimes that involve theft and it is the circumstances that surround each that defines their differences. When it comes to the legal definition of theft there are actually a number of categories of theft in addition to burglary and robbery. These additional theft crimes include: larceny, theft and extortion.

Robbery
In the dictionary, robbery is defined by the law as taking or trying to take something from someone that has value by utilizing intimidation, force or threat. In order for robbery to take place, a victim must be present at the scene and can occur with a single victim or, in cases like bank hold ups, multiple victims.

Burglary
Burglary is defined by the law as the unlawful entry to a structure to commit theft or a felony. In order for burglary to take place, a victim does not have to be present. When a burglary takes place, the structure being unlawfully entered can be any number of building types including business offices, personal homes and even garden sheds. Burglary is not the term used for crimes committed on cars.

Larceny
In the dictionary, larceny is a term that is similar to burglary. However, it does not involve illegal entry to a structure using attempted forcible, non-forcible or forcible entry methods. The exception to this rule is the case of burglary of a motor vehicle which is referred to as larceny. Under all conditions, whether a vehicle is left with the doors locked and security system on or whether the doors or windows were left open, vehicle “burglary” crimes are referred to as larceny

Theft
In the dictionary, many times the term, theft, is used as a general term by the public to refer to the illegal taking of an item. As it happens, theft is defined specifically depending upon the jurisdiction in which it is being prosecuted, but many times it is a term used as a synonym for larceny.

Extortion
In the dictionary extortion is a specific crime in which an individual forces someone to do something against their will by threatening them with damage to the person’s reputation, financial hardship, violence, property damage or threat of violence. Extortion differs from robbery in that victims who are being extorted willingly hand over the item being extorted in an attempt to avoid the threat being used against them. Depending upon the jurisdiction in which extortion is being prosecuted, it can be considered theft or larceny.
