How do you secure your Jersey Shore home for the winter and beyond?

Many homeowners in towns such as Toms River, Lavallette, Midway Beach, Berkeley Township, Brick, LBI, and Surf City are sad to say goodbye to “local summer” as there is a bit of coolness in the weather along the Jersey shore. This bit of coolness has many of the Jersey snow birds thinking of their sunny winter in Florida. Before you close up your Jersey shore home and fly off for the winter, you need to think of how secure your home is. Would you like to be able to look in and see exactly what is happening at your shore home from any location in the world that has internet excess?  If you answered yes, then it’s time to think of installing security cameras to your Jersey shore home.

Whether you are going south for the winter or just back to your residential home until next summer, are you leaving your beach home unattended? With fall and winter approaching, we all know it gets darker earlier outside. The darker it is outside, the easier it is for a burglar to go unnoticed. Keep an eye on your home while you are not.

Secure your Jersey Shore home with Security Cameras

Beach towns have less population as the cooler months join us, making it easier for a burglar to go undetected. Do you worry about your shore home when you are not physically there to see what may be happening? Security cameras give you that peace of mind knowing what’s taking place around the home when you are not able to be there. Would you like to know if someone steps on your property that shouldn’t be? Today’s security cameras can send you an alert right to your phone and notify you when someone is somewhere they are not supposed to be just by having the line crossing detection perimeters set up around your home. With the line crossing detection, or intrusion detection feature, you can now know exactly each time someone comes and goes, and rest assured your home is safe and secure. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras/Jersey Shore Security not only do we train you on your system the day of the install we also 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.

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.

Added Benefits of a home security camera system for landlords

We all think of security cameras to keep our homes safe from intruders, but are you thinking of renting out your shore home? If you are thinking of renting your shore home out for a season, or if you rent you Jersey shore home as a weekly rental, would you like to know how your tenants are keeping the area around the outside of your home?

My husband has peace of mind he can check on me and the kids while he travels for business. Thank you, Jersey Shore Security!” – Jill of Toms River, NJ

“Bob and his crew are the best they came in one day installed 6 cameras at our home. The views around my home are crystal clear day, night sunny and in the rain! In fact, a few days ago I came home and walked into my kitchen where we set up a monitor and could see my wife and kids pulling up at my back dock and I couldn’t believe how beautiful the footage was.” – Jon of Bayville, NJ

“I was hesitant to install security cameras to my home and my husband wanted them for years. Now we have them and I don’t know how we lived without them! Kris and Justin did our install and they were neat, clean, helpful and extremely patient with my wife and I learning how to work the system (we are not the most computer savvy couple) They made it so easy and user friendly. This past week I could not recall one of the features the guys showed us so I called the office and the office staff was also so patient and helpful and were able to direct me to the Central Jersey Security Cameras website where there is a help tab with step by step instruction videos. Thanks Jersey Shore Security for making it so easy and stress free using our new cameras.” – Megan of Brick, NJ

Back to School Safety Preparation 2018!

B2S18

Back to school time here in Central, South, and North New Jersey. With your children returning to the classroom this fall, after the previous year the United States saw in school shootings and lock downs, it’s time to think school security now more than ever. Many NJ schools have tightened security by not allowing anyone to just walk though the doors. You now have to show your ID as a parent during school hours.

It’s scary to think of all the safely 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 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.

aaron-burden-60068-unsplash

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 bio-metric 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 bio-metric 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 which is the “building lockdown” feature. For example, this would allow a school to press either a fixed or mobile button to instantaneously lock down the entire school by locking every single-entry door in the building. This feature would allow a school to fortify the building so no unauthorized persons would be able to enter.

back-bus-education-159658

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 keeps 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 to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future.

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. With the events that have taken place in this country throughout the last academic school year, this is how we can keep our children safe. It’s time to start planning to get the security your school needs.

Keep in mind, no two schools are the same when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms at 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 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+. Start with getting the security your school needs. Call Central Jersey Security Cameras today and let’s start making the plans to have your school as safe as it can be for this upcoming school year. 732-333-0227

 

Helping the Elderly Protect Their Homes!

Protecting your home or elderly parents’ home from home invasions

old-people-616718_1920

Gated communities are great with all of their club houses filled with activities and the convenience of no longer needing to cut your lawn or shovel snow in the winter but… how protected is your home in a gated community? What stops someone from getting into your gated community home?

Most of these communities here in NJ are gated at the entrances and around them are decorative fencing, if they have any at all. What would truly stop someone from just parking somewhere near by and walking right in and finding a way to break into and over power someone in one of these homes? Unfortunately, this past week in Lakewood, NJ this is what seems to be the case, an elderly couple at 55+ The Enclave were beaten, tied up with duct tape, and robbed.

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. Everyone needs the added home security no matter the age of the home owners, however, with the advance in todays technologies, there are added safety bonus for our elderly loved ones to think about.

KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR LOVED ONES

Would you like to keep a watchful eye on mom or dad to know they are safe? Home security cameras installed in a few key spots in the home can help you make sure mom or dad are protected and safe in their home. Have you been thinking of having a home health aide come to the home, but you are unsure of the treatment your loved one will get from them? We can set up nanny cams in their home, so you can be sure your loved ones are being treated the way they should be. With today’s technology, the possibilities are endless.

BE ALERTEDlts_platinum_ip_network_turret_camera_cmip1142-28

Would you like an alert sent to your phone when someone walks up to your front side walk or pulls in the driveway? How about would you like to have this on your phone for your parents that are ageing to help you look out for them? Well, Central Jersey Security Cameras in Freehold NJ has a solution for this. With our professionally installed HD security cameras we have a feature called line intrusion that we can set up on your security cameras, and the alerts?

INDEPENDENCE

Your parents still live on their own but you have concerns about someone coming to their home and taking advantage of them. 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.

Review: Interlogix UltraSync smart home system lets you design your own security network

A professionally-installed security system offers flexibility on products and Z-Wave compatibility

Terry Sullivan Jun 04, 2018

 

Consumer electronics products are entering and leaving the marketplace at an increasingly faster pace, driven in part by smart IoT products that connect to the internet. While people may have purchased just one or two IoT devices in the past, perhaps an Amazon Echo or a similar voice-controlled speaker, consumers are now buying more. We recently tested a suite of these products, including those from Interlogix and its UltraSync system, that not only provides home security but also helps to connect, manage and wirelessly control this constellation of devices. A monitored home security that is professionally installed, UltraSync even allows you to use Amazon Alexa‘s voice commands to help control the system.

 

Ultrasync Starter home security package
New From: $332.00 in Stock

We recently had a professional security company (Central Jersey Security Cameras, in Freehold, NJ) install the system, as well as several IoT devices, in one of our test houses. For this review, we had the following products installed:

  • UltraSync Self-Contained Hub
  • Yale Real Living Assure Lock SL Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt (YRD256)
  • TruVision 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR Camera (TVQ-8101)
  • JASCO Z-Wave Plug-In Smart Dimmer (ZW3103)
  • UltraSync+ mobile app (free, iOS and Android)

 

TruVision 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR camera supported motion detection.GearBrain

Installation and Overview of the UltraSync System

The UltraSync system is a professionally installed security system. From start to finish, it took Central Jersey Security Cameras roughly three hours to complete the job, which included setting up the mobile app and informal training. According to Central Jersey Security Cameras, the approximate installation cost was around $500, and included the cost of the individual items and labor.

There are several benefits to this system, along with the products we choose. First, all the products connect wirelessly to the system, so most likely you won’t need to do any drilling into walls, ceilings, or other parts of your home, unless you decide to mount the hub.

 

UltraSync Hub
New From: $220.00 in Stock

The system is also based on the Z-Wave wireless protocol. If a homeowner has or plans to buy a Z-Wave device, it would be compatible with the UltraSync system, which includes such products such as lighting, locks, thermostats, wireless speakers, doorbells, garage door openers, fan controllers, and water management systems.

Overall, the UltraSync system worked well. I found it was consistent in notifying me, mostly through the mobile app, as well as in triggering sounds in the home from the hub. For instance, when I open the front door, the panel produces a chiming sound to let someone know that the front door is ajar. Much of these notifications are also customizable. For more on the overall system, you can go to Interlogix’s UltraSync Smarthome section of its website.

 

In the UltraSync mobile app, you can view clips from the security camera, and customize your own features.GearBrain

The UltraSync+ mobile app

The mobile app, UltraSync+ (for iOS and Android), is the heart of the system since it’s where you’ll add products, or customize your UltraSync ecosystem. But unlike most consumer-oriented apps, it’s not really an app tailored for the DIY type. You need to work with the installation company that installed your system in order to understand certain aspects of the app, particularly passcode and passwords. At least, at first.

The app is divided into several sections, including overview, lights, thermostat, camera, lock, and sensor. In the upper-left hand corner of the app, there’s a menu section where, if you are not logged in, you can access a number of handy videos. However, you are asked to choose between videos targeted at homeowners and those targeted at the pro dealers. In terms of design, it would have been better to offer only one set of videos to consumers to confuse them. (In fact, if you choose the pro dealer videos, a warning pops up with a message telling you should never try to alter or even access the dealer settings. In my view, it would have been better to exclude such videos that might confuse users.)

New From: $149.00 in Stock

Additionally, there are differently designed sections that make the app feel a bit disjointed. For example, the Settings section looks markedly different from the main sections of the app. I also feel the app would benefit from a user manual or help section in addition to the help videos. Still, overall the app is useful and logical in its structure.

Overall, the system’s mobile app, worked reasonably well. I was impressed with the system’s consistent notifications, which appeared as popup messages on my phone and which can be configured in the Settings section of the app. All the commands and controls worked as expected, whether I was locking my front door, dimming the lights, or accessing video on the wireless camera.

The IoT Devices (Tested for this Review)

Because this review is focusing on a system, we chose to focus on several products that would most likely be included in a home-security system. The following devices were installed in our test house: UltraSync Self-Contained Hub, Yale Real Living Assure Lock SL Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt (YRD256), TruVision 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR Camera (TVQ-8101), JASCO Z-Wave Plug-In Smart Dimmer (ZW3103), and several sensors to work with the UltraSync system.

 

UltraSync Hub
New From: $220.00 in Stock

The UltraSync Self-Contained Hub

In many ways, you could have a review of just the UltraSync Self-Contained Hub. That’s because the features on this wireless hub are quite extensive: It can be set up for 256 users, 64 wireless sensors and 20 Keyfobs, and four distinct areas/partitions (which means you can split the system into smaller parts). Plus, it has a personal voice guided setup and menu prompts, and a 24-hour battery backup.

In terms of design, it has a very clear, functional, yet versatile interface: The various buttons are all color-coded and illuminated so that they can be clearly seen in dimly lit lighting scenarios. It’s also loaded with other system features: It’s internet ready, capable of being connected over Ethernet or Wi-Fi and, of course, includes a Z-Wave radio for controlling smart home devices. However, in many ways, I can see the average consumer opting to work mostly through the mobile app, and only use the hub when needed. Still, it’s worthwhile to take some time to study the hub’s extensive user PDF guide.

 

We installed the Yale Real Living Assure Lock SL Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt with the UltraSync systemGearBrain

Yale Real Living Assure Lock SL Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt

If you’re looking for a configurable lock that includes wireless Z-wave technology yet also has classic, non-tech styling, the Yale Real Living Assure Lock SL Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt is a very good choice. The technology works well within the UltraSync system. In our test house, we were able to lock and unlock the unit from the UltraSync+ mobile app as well as entering a number code onto the key pad.

You also have a lot of flexibility: For instance, you can add a temporary code for someone, say, who might be staying with you for just a couple of weeks. Via the app, you can provide your guest with his or her own unique key combination for the keyless entry lock. When they’ve left, you can remove this temporary code from the app’s settings. So, you always have control over who can unlock the door.

If there’s a downside, it’s with the display, although it’s more of a quibble: If you’ve installed the lock outside in an area that has direct sunlight, and it’s a bright and sunny day, it may be a bit difficult to see the LED numbers on the door pad. Obviously, you can shield the lock with your hands to see the numbers better. Overall, though, the product worked very well and provided a secure, yet flexible way to include a wireless, keyless lock into the UltraSync system.

 

The TruVision 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR camera had fairy accurate color, but highlights were blow out and had a lack of detail.GearBrain

TruVision 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR Camera

Our installation team set up TruVision’s 1080p IP Wi-Fi Desktop IR Camera as the security camera for the system, which as the name indicates allows for 1080p HD resolution video (as well as lower resolutions), and has a field of view of 115 degrees. We set it up in the living room, facing the door. In our tests, we found the model did a fine job at recording as well as capturing real-time video and audio. As with many security cams, there was quite a bit of sharpening as well as some barrel distortion, due to the wide angle of view.

Nevertheless, the footage had nice detail and fairly accurate color (even though the colors were on the muted side, and not very saturated.) The dynamic range was decent in the midrange tones, although not so good at the extremes of the tonal range. Highlights were blown out, with no details. Likewise, there was little detail in the darkest tones, since the shadows tended to swallow up any details.

The camera includes an infrared illuminator for assisting in capturing images in various lighting scenarios. We also found the motion detection features were flexible and very accurate. (Video clips are stored onboard using a micro SD/SDXC card up to 128GB.) For our test purposes, we found the camera capabilities on this camera to be quite good and versatile.

 

In the UltraSync app you can power the JASCO Z-Wave Plug-In Smart Dimmer lights on and off.GearBrain

JASCO Z-Wave Plug-In Smart Dimmer

In many ways the dimmer is the simplest of the items to use in our test system. You simply insert the JASCO dimmer into a power outlet, and then plug your light (it accepts both two- and three-pronged plugs) into the dimmer. In the app, lights can be powered on and off, or set within a range of 1 to 100 percent illumination.

Conclusion

As with any review of a configurable system, it’s hard to anticipate all the variables with adding or substituting different products within the UltraSync system. And we also look forward to trying out the UltraSync system using Alexa voice commands, as well.

Overall, we like that Interlogix focused on Z-wave compatible components and products, which means that installers have great flexibility in designing and customizing a system for their customers. And while we think some aspects of the system’s structure and user design (UX) could be more streamlined or at least integrated more consistently, in general, we think the system meets the needs of many consumers and business owners who want to own a flexible and re-configurable system.

Pros:

  • A flexible IoT security system for adding multiple products (Z-wave compatible)
  • Offers the ability to include Alexa voice commands to operate the system
  • Relatively simple integration with mobile app

Cons:

  • Comprehensive features may confuse some consumers
  • Certain sections of mobile app could have been more consistently designed
  • Should include more help guides and quick tips sections, along with help videos

Monroe, NJmain

Monroe is part of the outer-ring suburbs of the New York Metropolitan area. More growth has been from single family homes within the past 10 years, than with senior citizen developments. Monroe had the third-largest increase in population of any municipality in the state between 2010 and 2014. With all that growth, that would mean more homes, more businesses, more schools. And with that, they would need to be protected with a security system as well, right? Central Jersey Security Cameras has installed surveillance systems at many of these homes in Monroe and worked with many of the business owners to make sure they have security that fits all of their needs. 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!

 

East Brunswick, NJeast-brunswick

With its strategic location and room for growth, it continues to attract residents and homeowners.

Milltown, NJ6360320223112603821198390063_20151005_174100-1

Milltown, located on the outskirts of New Brunswick, NJ is a quaint little town. Many families choose to settle down in Milltown because it is a family-oriented town. Over the past two months, Central Jersey Security Cameras has been working hard helping many homeowners in the area to find the surveillance system that best suits their needs. A quote from one of our technicians here at Central Jersey Security Cameras “It’s been a pleasure to work in Milltown over the past few months and to see so many home owners getting surveillance and alarm systems on their homes”. Many of our New Jersey home owners are installing surveillance systems with 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.

 

Spotswood, NJdownload (1)

Another little town much like Milltown is Spotswood located between East Brunswick and Old Bridge. Spotswood is known for its large lake. Although it’s not a swimmable lake, many homeowners have a pool in their backyard.

Let us know what kind of speakers you would like installed in your home. These are a great addition to have in your home theater as well.

 

Old Bridge, NJold-bridge-300x221

Old Bridge township was named as a contender for the title of one of the best places to live in the United States by Money magazine in both 2005 and 2007. When the home invasions in Old Bridge, NJ took place in 2014 they made national headlines on various news networks, it was noted on these newscasts that Asian-Indian communities in Middlesex County were being targeted. This terrified Asian-Indian communities in Middlesex County, and many of the Asian-Indian communities turned to home security systems to keep their family and businesses safe.
Central Jersey Security Cameras worked closely with many Asian-Indian families to help them feel safe in their homes again. Central Jersey Security Cameras, President and Owner, Robert Murphy said, “I would like to point out that it was an honor to know I made families feel safe and secure again in their homes, and I wanted to point out burglaries/home invasions can happen to any type of family, or business, that a criminal decided to target, The crimes back in 2014, against the Asian-Indian families, took place when it was around a holiday known to have riches in the home. The truth is, it could have been any family in New Jersey targeted, if a burglar thinks may have a large score of goods in their home or business, they can be the criminals next potential victims.”

With that being said, Central Jersey Security Cameras has had a presence all over Old Bridge. We have done security installations from single family homes, to businesses, to restaurants, to fire departments, to libraries, to daycares in Old Bridge. Central Jersey Security Cameras is here to help you protect what matters most.

Tips for Home Safety this Fall

Sweater weather has finally hit, and as you enjoy the season and get ready for the upcoming holidays it is a good time to remember some home safety tips for the fall to ensure the protection of your family, your home, and your valuables. Below are 5 easy tips to keep your home safe during the fall.

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.

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.

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.

Keeping a light on can keep a robber away.

4. Don’t Open for Strangers: Though trick-or-treaters will be abundant next 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.

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 of time. 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.
