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.

Not only can Central Jersey Security Cameras provide cameras with line detection, we can also put cameras inside the home in areas you may need to watch, such as the kitchen to make sure our loved one is safe when they are cooking or anywhere else you may worry about their safety. With today’s technology, the possibilities are endless.
Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we offer instructional videos to walk you through the entire process on setting up your security system to send you the alerts when areas are breached, or lines are crossed. You must remember to allow notifications on your smart device if you are being notified through the app or “surveillance center” as it is called on the software setup.
To get your elderly loved ones protected with a home security camera system, call us at Central Jersey Security Cameras and we can help you work out a plan that best fits their needs within a budget and without becoming intrusive in their lives. Call us today. 732-333-0227

Top 5 Security Tips for your home or Bussniess this fall

 
Howell NJ PAL Trunk or Treat
Howell NJ PAL Trunk or Treat

Central Jersey Security Cameras had a great time taking part in the Howell NJ Trunk or Treat last night. We saw many of our customers out and about with their families last night and met many new families that all had one common question for us and that was, “what is the Best way to keep my home safe?” In today’s world, safety while we are out is always a concern, but safety at home should be the place you feel the most secure and safe. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we send our staff for training through out the year to stay up to date on all of the latest home and business security camera and security alarm updates to stay ahead of all the newest technology available. While staying ahead with all of the newest technology is important, below you will find a list of our top five fall home security tips from Central Jersey Security Cameras.

 

 

 

1.Send a Clear Sign: Make sure your home security signs aren’t covered up with decorations. As illustrated by the picture below, some people choose to use their security signs as a place to add decoration. It’s important to remember that even though this is a time to be festive, signs are one of the easiest ways to deter a criminal. Consider using decorations to highlight your security camera sign instead, and make it more obvious to potential thieves so they avoid your home all together.Enjoy your holiday decorations, but make sure they don’t hide your signs.

2.Rake Away the Leaves: Make sure your outdoor home security cameras don’t get obstructed by leaves or snow. Ensuring your camera’s view is clear is an easy way to maintain visibility whether viewing in real-time or during play-back. Nothing is more frustrating than needing security footage that has been carelessly covered. Clearing out your gutters can help for cameras located up high, to prevent dangling fall foliage from blocking your view.Don’t let leave or snow block your camera views.

3. Brighten Up: One distinct characteristic of fall and winter is the earlier setting sun. Lighting can play a big role in improving your homes safety, and from discouraging robbers from targeting your home. Make sure to add additional lighting if necessary to dark corners, and keep lights on in the late afternoon and evening.Keeping a light on can keep a robber away.

4. Don’t Open for Strangers: Though trick-or-treaters will be abundant this week, it’s important that you know who you’re opening your door for. Sometimes burglars disguise themselves, and come right up and knock on your door to either rob your home, or get a better look around until you aren’t home. Security camera can help you view who’s approaching your home so you can make smart decisions about who you decide to open up for.Know who’s at your door before you answer it.

5.Add an Alarm: If you don’t already have one, consider adding an alarm system to increase your home safety. While the presence of security cameras are a deterrent in and of themselves, no burglar wants to stick around a home with a blaring alarm going off. In the event that someone breaks into your home, an alarm system can quickly notify you and police through our central station monitoring.

Just like all other seasons, make sure to lock your doors when you leave the home, check that your cameras and/or alarms are working properly and make your home looks occupied if you leave for an extended period. Fall is a special time of year where you should be able to enjoy fun activities- pumpkin picking, gathering with friends and family, and enjoying the outdoors. Don’t let fear of your home’s safety stop you from doing the things you love. If you don’t already have a home security or alarm system or if you want to update your current system, call us at Central Jersey Security Cameras for a free estimate (732) 333-0227.

 

Back to school in NJ- How safe is your school security?

central Jersey Security Cameras has worked close with many NJ schools

central Jersey Security Cameras has worked close with many NJ schools

back-to school time to get safe

Its back to school time in New Jersey!! All over social media and the news channels, you see it’s back to school time. Going back to school should make your local schools do a check up on their security that they have in place to protect what truly matter most to all of us our children!

 

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. So, the question to ask here is, “how can we keep our children safe?”. It’s scary to think of all the safety measures that need to go into place today in our schools. The first lines of defense that all schools 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, along 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.
Cameras should be placed at each exterior entrance of the school as well, so the front desk can see who is moving around the outside of the school at all times. Next would be proper placement of cameras inside the school. Each hallway and stairwell needs to be protected. Cameras inside the schools keep your children protected on so many levels. 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.
Many 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 as a way to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future.
Keep in mind, no two schools are the same when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms to your schools. A company that offers a package is not really your best bet. You want to go with a company that will come to each and every school and does a safety audit to best meet the needs of each school. A school 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 school’s needs. This audit of the school should not just be limited to security cameras and alarms in the school, it should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another tool your school board 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 will come work with your school district and school budget to best protect your most valuable assets, your children! Our staff is background checked and highly trained in installation of all aspects of security systems. Central Jersey Security Cameras is Better Business Bureau Accredited A+. Call today and let’s start making the plans to have your school as safe as it can be for next school year! 732-333-0227

Keeping Your Home Safe and Secure this Spring Break

Home Automation from the Beach

Home Automation from the Beach

It’s spring break for many NJ Families. Freehold, Jackson, Colts Neck, Howell, Farmingdale, Manalapan, Old Bridge, and Marlboro NJ to just name a few nearby towns. Many families are packing the families up catching flights to fun destinations or packing the family up in the car for their spring break get away. Some busy families take the kids on day trips to keep the kid’s busy. No matter if you go away for a few weeks or a few hours, as you drive away from your Freehold, Jackson, Colts Neck, Howell, Farmingdale, Manalapan, Old Bridge, and Marlboro home who will be watching your home while you are gone? How safe will your home, and all the belongings you work so hard for while you are away, really be? Here are just a few Tips from your local Security Company, Central Jersey Security Cameras:

Let’s start with Windows and Doors-
All your first-floor doors, and windows should be secured with heavy-duty locks. This includes double-keyed deadbolts on your doors. For added protection an alarm on your home with glass breaks, or sensors in the room will alert a central station monitoring, or proper authorities within seconds.

Even your valuables or important Jewelry and money –
Burglars head immediately to the master bedroom upon gaining entry to a home. Never store valuables in the master bedroom! A clever idea is to store them in a safe, located in a bathroom or other interior room.

When You Aren’t Home; Make it Look Like You are Home –
Adding an Ultra-Sync alarm to your home can now give you control over your lights at home. From the palm of your hand, you can now have complete home automation with the ease of your smart phone. You can turn lights off, and on with the tap of your finger. Ultra-Sync can even schedule the lights to turn on at a specific time of day. You can even control your heat while you are away with this alarm system! To learn more about what the Ultra-Sync can do for your home visit our webpage
Have your Home Protected with Home Security Cameras –
Home security cameras are the #1 deterrent from a burglar breaking into your home. Time and time again, we see a criminal look right into the camera, and we get a call that a house a few doors down has been broken into. Don’t call when it’s too late, give your home a security system that will

Lastly, Have your Home Secure with an Alarm with Central Station Monitoring
Alarms are also a great deterrent, however, alarm systems with Central Station Monitoring will alert the proper authorities. To the glass on a window being broken, or movement in the home we have alarms that cover it all. The Central Station Company used by Central Jersey Security Cameras has a 13 second response time to get the proper authorities dispatched to your home. (Just want to double-check this- Tracy has been working on this for a couple of days and she thinks she pulled this from C.O.P.S website, but is unsure because she has worked on it in between everything else : If you don’t want to say “13 seconds” we can try ‘The Central Station Company used by Central Jersey Security Cameras has a response time that will alert the proper authorities within seconds.’)
The peace of mind while you are away from home: knowing that your home is protected from unwanted guests while you are away is priceless.
