Protect Your Place of Worship with Central Jersey Security Cameras

10-31-18 [Grant]

Protect your place of worship. Did you know that every church, synagogue, temple, mosque, and non-profit facility is entitled to a homeland grant for security of up to $150k this year? Don’t let this opportunity pass you by to secure your facility with the latest security measures, such as 4k surveillance camera/security camera systems that can give you the best quality and most secure surveillance of the surrounding facility including both the interior and exterior. Additionally, we can provide burglar alarm systems with the ability to have a direct police dispatch with mobile panic buttons. Central Jersey Security Cameras/Jersey Shore Security can even provide access control with controlled entry and immediate lockdown feature for emergencies. With all these services your place of worship, non-profit organization, home, or business would benefit from the many layers of security by deterring criminals, reducing liability and delivering you peace of mind.

Your security company must be fully registered, licensed and able to comply with all regulations to be on the approved vendor list for this type of work.

The Homeland Security Grant Program is comprised of three grant programs:

  • State Homeland Security Program (SHSP)
  • Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)
  • Operation Stone Garden (OPSG)

Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) provides funding support for target hardening and other physical security enhancements to nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of a terrorist attack and located within one Fiscal Year 2018 Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)-designated urban areas. Funding can be used for the acquisition and installation of security equipment on real property (including buildings and improvements) owned or leased by the nonprofit organization, specifically in the prevention of and/or protection against the risk of a terrorist attack. Eligible applicants may apply for a maximum of $150,000.00 per organization and eligible categories now include Equipment, Training, Planning, & Exercise

The Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the building, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient nation.

As stated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, these four areas of mission-supporting responsibilities are what drive the Homeland Security Grant Program:

  • Protecting the United States from terrorist threats is the founding principle and highest priority.
  • Securing the Nation’s southern and northern borders along with air and sea ports of entry.
  • Facilitating legal immigration and naturalizing new Americans, while prosecuting those who violate the country’s laws.
  • Helping communities prepare, respond and recover from all facets of disaster.

Many places of worship are used also as youth centers, daycares, and schools, so it is also our top priority to ensure that all these facilities are as safe for the public as possible. The first lines of defense that all organizations such as churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and non-profit facilities need to have today are locked doors with a buzz in system.  These doors should have a camera pointing at the person at the door with an intercom system. With the buzz in system in place, a person at the door can state why they are there and actually show their ID before the doors are opened. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras, we sell cutting-edge access control systems such as CDVI Atrium as one of our top selling products. Access control is a way of limiting access to a system or to physical or virtual resources. In computing, access control is a process by which users are granted access and certain privileges to systems, resources, or information.

In access control systems, users must present credentials before they can be granted access. In physical systems, these credentials may come in many forms, but credentials that can’t be transferred provide the most security. For example, a key card may act as an access control and grant the bearer access to a classified area. Because this credential can be transferred or even stolen, it is not a secure way of handling access control.

A more secure method for access control involves two-factor authentication. The person who desires access must show credentials and a second factor to corroborate identity. The second factor could be an access code, a pin or even a biometric reading.

There are three factors that can be used for authentication:

  • Something only known to the user, such as a password or pin.
  • Something that is part of the user, such as a fingerprint, retina scan or another biometric measurement.
  • Something that belongs to the user, such as a card or a key.

For computer security, access control includes the authorization, authentication, and audit of the entity trying to gain access. Access control models have a subject and an object. The subject, the human user, is the one trying to gain access to the object – usually the software. In computer systems, an access control list contains a list of permissions and the users to whom these permissions apply. Such data can be viewed by certain people and not by other people and is controlled by access control. This allows an administrator to secure information and set privileges as to what information can be accessed, who can access it and at what time it can be accessed.

One of the latest and greatest features we have to offer is a feature that unfortunately today is becoming more necessary in our everyday lives, “building lockdown” feature. For example, this would allow the organization to press either a fixed or mobile button to instantaneously lock down the entire facility by locking every single-entry door in the building. This feature would allow an organization to fortify the building so no unauthorized persons would be able to enter.

lts_platinum_ip_network_turret_camera_cmip1142-28
Cameras should be placed at each exterior entrance of the facility as well, so the front desk can see who is moving around the outside of the facility at all times. A greatly useful feature that we must not forget about is our Line Crossing Detection Systems. A Line crossing detection, or intrusion detection, is a function of your DVRNVR 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 DVRNVR  or IP camera. For example, you want to know when someone or something enters your driveway? So, you go into the software of your DVRNVR 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 place of worship, school, organization, business or even home 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.

Next, would be proper placement of cameras inside the facility. Each hallway and stairwell need to be protected. Cameras inside the facility keep your guests protected on so many levels. Many of these organizations also double as a school or even host after school care programs. Schools are now even adding cameras to the actual classrooms. This is often the proof to show parents how their child is behaving in the classroom, or proof of how a teacher may interact with your child. Cameras in the classroom often serve as not just protection for the child and the teacher, but to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future. They will protect your children from bullies, protect teachers from falsely being accused of something and can protect your child from a teacher that may not be treating your child right.

Keep in mind, when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms at your facility that a company that offers a package is not really your best bet. You want to go with a company that will come to each location and does a safety audit to best meet the needs of each facility. A safety audit is something that should be done at least once a year to ensure all the systems are working properly and are still meeting your facility’s needs. This audit of the facility should not just be limited to security cameras and alarms. It should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another tool your organization can use when looking for the company that is going to install your security system is to look them up in the Better Business Bureau. You want to use a company that is BBB accredited so you can look back on the company’s track record. Keep in mind too, when choosing the company or any company that may work in your schools, be sure that the staff is all background checked. Central Jersey Security Cameras/Jersey Shore Security will come work with your organization and their budget to best protect your most valuable assets. Our staff is background checked and highly trained in the installation of all aspects of security systems. Central Jersey Security Cameras is Better Business Bureau Accredited A+.

  2. Prevent theft
  3. Improve productivity
  4. Reduce liability
  5. Protect intellectual property
  6. Manage remotely

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.

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:

  • Conduct a background check on prospective employees
  • Install an access control system allowing employees to enter only those 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

With summer now in full swing, it’s time to think of your home security.

IMG_9595

With summer now in full swing, it is time to think of your home security. Are your kids home for the summer? Are they old enough to be left at home alone, but you still worry they are safe? Do you have a summer vacation planned or even a stay-cation where you are going to take a few day trips and be away from home? Are you just a busy New Jersey family with your family booked up with summer sporting events? If you answered yes to one or more of those questions, then it is time to think about your home security.

We have all taught our kids to never open the door for a stranger. However, as adults most of us do not take those same safety precautions before answering the door. In today’s society, you can’t trust that the person on the other side of the door is a friendly visitor. Of course, we all want to go to the door and just answer it to see who is there, but today you have to be smart and think back to telling your children why they can’t just whip the door open, you just don’t know who is there or what their intentions are.

Here are a few home security tips for today’s busy families:
• Use a security camera to see who is at the door. Make the camera visible. A camera could deter someone with devious intentions. The camera itself will allow you to see who is at the door.
• You may want to consider having an alarm installed and have your key fob in your hand when you decide to answer the door. If the person at the door makes you feel you are in danger you can hit your panic button to dispatch the police.
• Interact with the visitor using an intercom. This is an effective and affordable way to talk with a stranger without actually answering the door.
• Trust your instincts, your instincts are often right so, if your gut is telling you that something is wrong, then don’t open the door!!

The advances in today’s home security systems have now reached a new level and have become even more user friendly to today’s busy families. The UltraSync alarm now provides complete home protection from the inside out. The system easily incorporates additional security and home safety devices for extra peace of mind so you can now check on the following all through live-streaming video via UltraSync indoor/outdoor cameras or with text alerts:
• Make sure the kids got home on time.
• Check in on contractors.
• See how your pets are behaving.

 

Come Home to Comfort: Your home can be ready for you at just the right time by automatically adjusting:

il_570xN.1442268779_op3s
• Thermostats – Adjust your home to the temperature that satisfies you. In the summer, turn down the air conditioning to get it nice and cool before you even step into the home. In the winter, turn the heat up to make it toasty and warm inside for you after that chilly walk from the car.
• Turning on lights – Nobody likes to walk into a dark home. Be prepared for the unexpected day trips that turn into all day affairs. You can have the lights turned on before you even step foot into your home, but the advantage of that is to also make it look like you are home even when you are not to deter a potential burglar.
• Unlocking doors as you arrive (Using the geo-location technology in your UltraSync system paired with your smartphone’s GPS.) – Long trips to the grocery store sometimes means you don’t have a free hand to unlock the door with your keys as you are carrying in all those bags.

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.
