Protect your Elderly Loved Ones – Consider a Security Camera System to Keep Your Family Safe!

elderly couple

Adult communities have a lot of perks ranging from their clubhouses filled with different activities to no longer needing to shovel snow or mow your own lawn. Although this is a great option for the elderly to live, we still need to ensure that their homes are safe and protected. What is stopping someone from breaking into your gated community home?

Typically, adult communities have decorative gates and fencing at the entrances and around the community. Would this really stop a determined burglar from just parking somewhere nearby and walking right in or hopping the fence? The elderly are a target for burglars because they can usually easily overpower them and take their valuables without much of a fight. An elderly man from St. Louis, Missouri is currently recovering from a burglary that happened inside his home on April 19, 2019. The elderly victim was sitting outside on his porch when a masked man approached him and pulled out a gun. The victim was then forced inside his home and struck in the face with the gun. The burglar stole the victims’ cell phone and other belongings before fleeing the scene. This incident was caught on an interior security camera the victim had inside his home. Capturing these unfortunate events on the camera will give the authorities a better picture of those responsible and will show them exactly what took place. Let’s keep our elderly parents safe and secure with the help of Central Jersey Security Cameras.

Keep an eye on those who matter to you

Do your parents or grandparents live in a gated community? Installing security cameras in their homes will be a huge relief knowing that you can check on them if they aren’t answering your phone calls or you haven’t heard from them in a couple of days. Not only will security cameras protect your loved ones by being a deterrent for intruders, but they reek the benefits much more than that. By installing security cameras in their homes, you will be able to actually see what they are up to. Unfortunately, burglars and thieves aren’t the only people that raise concern when thinking about your elderly parents living alone. Have you considered getting a home health aide to go to their home? You need to make sure that whoever you choose to take care of your elderly loved ones are giving them the proper care they need while also treating them with respect and dignity. We can set up nanny cams in their homes so you will be able to actually see what is taking place if a home health aide does go to their home. We all worry about our elderly loved ones when we can’t physically be there with them. Not only will security cameras give you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are okay, but it can also be lifesaving for them. With security cameras placed inside the home, you will be able to see mom cooking in the kitchen while ensuring she’s safe around the stove. With the placement of outdoor cameras, you can check in and see that dad is safe while out in the yard or walking up the front steps. Everyone needs that added home security no matter what age, however with today’s advanced technology there are many benefits to installing security systems for our elderly loved ones.

Be alerted

Wouldn’t it be nice to get an alert sent to your phone when someone walks up to your parent’s house or pulls into their driveway? Well, now you can! With our professionally installed HD security cameras, we have a feature called line intrusion we can set up to your cameras. Line intrusion works by setting your own area in which you would want to be alerted if it became breached. For example, if you want to receive an alert to your phone when someone pulls into your parent’s driveway you would go into the software and draw lines in the front of the driveway. These lines are only set by you, therefore, they aren’t visible to the human eye. There are also sensitivity settings that you have the option to adjust. If you don’t want to be alerted if a rabbit hops into their driveway you would simply adjust the sensitivity setting to measure larger objects. If the set area becomes breached, you will receive an alert right on your smart device. Line intrusion is a free bonus to having your security cameras professionally installed by us.

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+.

Spring Break: A Safe, Fun, Exciting Time…Right?

Spring Break: A Safe, Fun, Exciting Time…Right?

1

With Spring quickly approaching make sure you know what is going on in and around your home and/or place of business. Spring Break is a huge time for people to celebrate the warm weather, breaks from school, and the fact that the Summer months will soon be here. It’s a time where families and friends get together and spend many afternoons by the pool, at the boardwalk, or just taking it easy. It is also a very popular time for high school and college students to throw house parties. With popular towns like Seaside, Asbury, Belmar, Wildwood, and Point Pleasant, our state becomes a very fun place to celebrate. Although it is a very exciting time for everyone, most parents don’t get off from work to keep an eye on what’s going on at home. Don’t you want to make sure your home and the people in it are safe and secure? Allow us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras to help!

What are the risks during Spring Break?

Its no surprise to many of us that a lot of Spring break parties consist of underage drinking. Statistics from the Office of Juvenile Justice found that people between the ages of 12-20 drink 11% of alcohol consumed in the U.S. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA) did a study in 2014 that determined almost half of all college students binge drink and take it to the extreme during Spring break. Another study done by the American College of Health determined the average college male drinks about 18 drinks per day on Spring break while the average college female drinks up to 10. These numbers are well over the safe level of alcohol consumption. With the installation of security cameras in your home it will deter your high schoolers and college kids from throwing parties this Spring break and make them second guess the choices they make when you aren’t home.

Are there other risks we should be concerned about?

-Half of full-time college students have reported drinking, using prescription drugs, or using illicit drugs during Spring break

-More than 690,000 students (ages 18-24) have reported being assaulted by an individual who has been drinking

-More than 97,000 students (ages 18-24) have reported experiencing some form of sexual abuse from an individual who has been drinking

-Over 599,000 students (ages 18-24) have had unintentional injuries as a result of alcohol consumption

-Theft is extremely common during Spring break because a lot of people leave their wallets and purses in unsecure places while partying

Let us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras help in ensuring that your home and the people in it are safe. Not only do we offer security cameras and alarms, we also offer a feature called line crossing detection, or intrusion detection. This is a function of your DVRNVR or IP camera. Line crossing detection 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. You will be able to set this to work on a schedule for when you aren’t home. Keep track of the people entering your home when you aren’t there.

My Kid? NEVER…!

Certainly, we should hope and trust that our children will make safe decisions and be responsible this Spring break. Unfortunately, peer pressure plays a big role at high school and college parties. A lot of times teens and young adults feel that they should engage in risky behavior just because “everyone’s doing it” or because “its cool” to fit in which can result in bad decision making especially when alcohol is involved. Let’s work together to ensure that your children make responsible decisions this Spring break by installing security cameras inside your home!

I have a pool and a huge backyard; how will I be able to see what’s going on outside?

Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we have the proper equipment to fit everyone’s needs. Our team of well-trained technicians would be happy to install security cameras on the outside of your house and yes, even by your pool! We have a wide selection of dome cameras and bullet cameras that are weatherproof and waterproof so you will still be able to clearly view what is going on in or outside of your home. The main difference between both dome and bullet cameras is their appearance. Bullet cameras are recommended for outside mainly because of its double EXIR Infrareds built into some models thus causing the night vision to be extended an additional 40 to 50 feet.

I own a business, should I be concerned about Spring breakers?

Beach towns become much busier once the weather gets warmer. If you own a business near the beach or on the boardwalk, we can help to ensure that your place of business is safe and secure during and after hours. A lot of teens and college students tend to let loose and be carefree during Spring break, which can unfortunately result in them becoming rowdy and irresponsible. Not only is the boardwalk a popular place for Spring breakers, it is also very busy for those celebrating Easter! Seaside, Point Pleasant, and Wildwood offer Easter egg hunts right on the boardwalk. Jenkinson’s boardwalk in Point Pleasant is also offering an Easter 2-for-1 sale on amusement ride tickets. April is a very busy time for our beach towns and boardwalks, make sure your protecting one the places that matters most to you.

With the installation of security cameras on the inside or outside of your business you will be able to view any suspicious behavior that may take place. It is extremely difficult to keep an eye on everyone that enters and exits your place of business, especially when you’re working in a highly populated area. Shops located near and on the boardwalk see thousands of people each day during the warmer months. With the installation of security cameras, you can feel more comfortable knowing that you have an extra set of eyes to catch any risky behavior, and you will also be able to contact the proper authorities in the case that something does happen.

I rent out my home during the Spring and Summer months, should I be worried?

The warmer months are a very popular time for people to rent vacation homes, especially here at the Jersey Shore. With places like Wildwood, Seaside, Point Pleasant, and more, our state becomes much more populated during the Spring and Summer months. Keep track of what is happening in your rental homes when they are being occupied by tenants. With the installation of security cameras, you can ensure that your home is being respected and well taken care of while being rented out this Spring break season. Our team of technicians can help you in deciding which camera’s best fit your needs and place them in the common areas of your home (driveways, front and back doors, the garage, stair wells). However, cameras will not be placed in changing rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, and laundry areas in order to respect your tenant’s privacy.

How will installing cameras help in keeping our children safe this Spring break?

Of course, Spring break is worth celebrating! But we must ensure that our children are doing it in a safe and responsible way. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras our well-trained team of technicians can help you in choosing the proper equipment for your home. Our remote view cameras are very popular and will allow you to see what is taking place in your home by viewing it on your smart phone, tablet, or computer. This will show you a clear live video of what is happening and will allow you to take action in the case that you need to. We also offer a feature called line crossing detection. This feature will send you an alert right to your phone when somebody walks up to your front door or pulls into your driveway. Line intrusion is a nice feature for having your cameras professionally installed. Surely it will help ease your worries and concerns for who is in your home when you can’t be there to see for yourself.

Can I save footage from the cameras?

Record all events in “real time” as they happen. Receive push notifications or text messages of real-time video from your security equipment. Watch your home live when you’re not there from smartphones or other portable devices. Keep an eye on what’s going on in your home during this popular party season and feel comfortable knowing exactly what is taking place at that exact time.

If an event were to occur, for example, somewhere within a 24-hour period but you’re not quite sure when the event happened, you can jump around to time frames with our event schedule. This appears as a color-coded event list. It allows you to jump ahead to all motion triggered events, thus making your search much quicker. If your cameras are set to record all the time, even with nothing moving in front of them, it could shorten the life of the hard drive space. With the event schedule you could save space and lengthen the time on your NVR/DVR.

I’m not too tech savvy, what if I need help after the install?

Not only does Central Jersey Security Cameras have a help tab on our website that has step by step videos for you to follow along with, we also offer technical support as well. Our well-trained technical personnel are in our office daily to answer any questions you may have about your security system. Out technicians receive monthly training on our security products to keep their knowledge fresh. They will explain the process of the installation before starting the job and will make it a point to keep you informed on all progress. They will also provide you with a full tutorial at the conclusion of the install.  We do our best here at Central Jersey Security Cameras to ensure that you have all the information you need to be able to properly use your system.

How Secure is your Mall or Shopping Center?

Mall Header

Do you own a store here in the garden state of New Jersey? It does not matter if you are in a strip mall or in a large enclosed mall, your store needs security cameras. Security cameras are needed to help deter crimes. When a possible thief sees they are being filmed they will move on to their next target in most cases.

Today more than ever security cameras in shopping malls and stores are needed to help keep the public safe not only from small shoplifting crimes but from threats to the shopping malls as well. Video surveillance is often used as an aide today for the proper authorities to see what is taking place once a threat is called in.

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 from being broken and used as an entry
  • Motion sensor-activated lighting and alarms can also help deter burglars

Shopping malls use a wide variety of cameras to monitor shoppers throughout a shopping mall. These cameras are used to reduce theft and to improve the overall safety in the shopping mall. Cameras also, help store owners keep an eye on their employees. Store owners often install cameras in areas not only to watch the merchandise but to also watch employees on the cash register too. 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 loss. 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 peace 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 can give you peace of mind, call us today and have your business evaluated for a security surveillance system.

Products

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

Cameras with remote viewing are a great way for the owner to watch their store, even when they cannot be there, with cameras that can now remote view from anywhere in the world. Owners can view their stores remotely from almost anywhere in the world that has internet with the use of their smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Most malls use CCTV security cameras to monitor common areas in the mall. These are areas such as the walkways, food courts and various halls in the mall. The crimes that happen in malls are typically shoplifting; menacing behavior involving juveniles and thefts. CCTV cameras are often watched by a central station monitoring station that will alert mall security or the proper authorities if they see something in the mall that has a safety concern.

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?

Parking lot

Parking lots around the malls are another key area to a mall to make sure they are protected. Parking lots have seen a large increase in suspicious activity in recent years. They’ve unfortunately become an ever-growing space for kidnappings and human trafficking issues, especially in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Security cameras used in parking lots are often dome cameras. Dome cameras are not always easy to detect unless you are looking for them. These cameras because of their dome shape are also hard to know or see where they are pointing. Dome-shaped cameras feature dark colored glass that often helps prevents them from being seen. Bullet cameras are used in parking lots as well; these cameras are made to withstand the weather outdoors and are hard to be tampered with. Bullet cameras can see large areas and many parking lots use PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) Bullet cameras so security can zoom in and move the cameras with a joystick to get the views they need. These cameras are often instrumental in finding licenses plate numbers for the authorities.

Just earlier this week an act of violence took place when a group of teenagers was assaulted just outside a mall parking lot in Deptford Township, New Jersey. The security cameras installed in the parking lot captured the attack and assisted police and mall security to have a better understanding of the situation. For more information and for the video footage of the attack, click here or the image below to view the article.Untitled

In Malls with elevators cameras will monitor the people coming and going and the actions that they are doing in the elevator. In most malls, the biggest crime that takes place is often vandalism. Now with cameras in place, these vandals will be caught.

When choosing a security camera company for all your store/mall needs you need to choose a company that has training in installs in the complex mall settings. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras, our technicians have gone through extensive training for mall security cameras and alarms. They have worked closely with mall security in the proper placement of cameras to help mall security personal use cameras in their malls to their fullest potential. When installing security cameras, 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.

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.

How Secure is the ATM you use?

dcx_doc6ygg3b8kpug317l7eqj
Thieves have found yet another way to victimize people and steal their savings directly from the bank’s ATM machines. This directly affects the account holder since all money being withdrawn is right from an unsuspecting individual’s account. This is called “jackpotting” and while we associate this term mostly with a positive outcome, this is certainly the opposite. Basically, what happens is someone on the back end at a remote location is hacking the banks secure servers and accessing the ATM’s functions allowing them to access your account and programming the ATM to spit out your savings directly from the machine while an accomplice waits in front of the ATM for your savings to wind up in their hands.

Obviously, the best way to combat this is to build an “unhackable” network… until that time what can the banks do other than addressing the network’s vulnerability? Well, placing up to date security cameras at all ATM machines with the highest quality image with interactive facial recognition, self reporting real time security cameras with system integration. Explained in a simpler form, cameras that have the highest possible resolution such as I.P. cameras equipped with a feature that can store a person’s face that can be labeled as a suspicious person and when that person appears in front of the camera again it will send a real time notification that can effectively trigger alarms and alert either the authorities or directly to the institution for information gathering.

Believe it or not there are still a lot of banks with very low-resolution cameras or even non-functioning cameras at their ATM machines. Security cameras won’t solve every problem, but are a very effective resource as a preventative or post measure to deter thieves or gather footage. The time has come to arm yourself with high quality security cameras for your home and business. There has never been a better time between the quality and pricing of the cameras.

Keep in mind its just as important to choose the right security company as it is to choose the right cameras. Placing up to date security cameras at all ATM machines with the highest quality image with interactive facial recognition, self reporting real time security cameras with system integration. Cameras that have the highest possible resolution such as I.P. cameras equipped with a feature that can store a person’s face that can be labeled as a suspicious person and when that person appears in front of the camera again it will send a real time notification that can effectively trigger alarms and alert either the authorities or directly to the institution for information gathering.

Another tool your commercial business 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. Keep in mind too, when choosing the company or any company that may work in your business, be sure that the staff is all background checked.

The Importance of Having Hotel / Resort Security Cameras: for the Hotel / Resort Owner and Hospitality Staff

Hotels/Resorts are huge places, and have many areas that have potential for a customer to injure themselves due to their own careless mistake. Hotel-goers could even become injured because a staff member neglected to do their job, and didn’t maintain an area. Security surveillance will help prove who or what may be at fault, and help protect your hotel/ resort investment. Below, you will find a few more of the most common reasons why security cameras are needed in hotel/ resorts:

-Slip and Fall Claims-

In a perfect world we would like to believe everyone will tell the truth and not be dishonest however, not everyone will tell the truth, and some will try to take advantage of an opportunity to cash in on money from the hotel or resort. Security Cameras will be the proof the hotel needs to actually see the event that took place at the time of a slip and fall claim. The DVR/NVR’s hard drive can store up to 2 years of footage, making it more accessible to you.

-How does your Staff Work?-

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 the hotel/resort.

-Assaults-

Let’s face it, this is not something you often think of when you are traveling on your vacation or even on a business trip, unfortunately, this is something that does happen. Often it is high vacation areas that unwanted guests may try to get into, or near hotel guest and look to rob valuables, and may even cause bodily harm. Here is a cause where security cameras help protect the hotel customer as well as the hotel. It helps to have proof of who and how the person gained access to the location.

-Thefts-

While on vacation, someone stealing is one of the last things people often think of, but once again, it is something that takes place. When we are in the vacation mode we often let out guard down a bit, and leave our bags filled with expensive cell phones, I pads, Wallets, etc. on our beach chair, by the pool. A thief looks at this as a way to make an easy score. Hotels and resorts that have security cameras often deter these crimes from even taking place. Here once again this helps the hotel see if something took place or not to its hotel guest.

-Damage to your Hotel Claims-

This is something, unfortunately, all too many NJ shore hotels face each year, with guests over indulging in the NJ bar scene. Especially in Towns such as Sea Side Heights NJ, Belmar NJ, and Wildwood NJ. All too often, hotel guests overdo it and can potentially cause damage to the hotels they are staying in, or become unruly and authorities need to be called. Often to the hotel owner that does not have security surveillance it’s now a case of he said she said, or relying on other guest testimonials of what took place. Hotels that are now equipped with hotel security cameras now have the proof they need for insurance, and for the authorities
