DID YOU KNOW CARBON MONOXIDE IS THE SILENT KILLER?!

AS TEMPERATURES DROP, CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING RISK RISES!

Carbon monoxide cannot be detected by humans without the help of a detector. Did you know that one of the most dangerous things that can hurt you and your loved ones can be hiding right underneath your nose?! By definition, carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and a tasteless gas formed when a compound containing carbon burns incompletely because there is not enough oxygen. This gas is deadly to both animals and humans. Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer” because it is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non- irritating.

Homes that are completely powered by electricity do not have problems with carbon monoxide. The deadly gas is only a potential threat to individuals who heat their homes or appliances with natural gas or another type of fossil fuel. Also, during power outages in the winter, some people bring gasoline powered generators inside. This is NOT a very good idea! By having a gasoline powered generator inside your home, you are exposing yourself to carbon monoxide, which explains the spike in carbon monoxide poisonings in the winter. During power outages, people are more likely to use carbon-monoxide-producing heating and cooking equipment as well as generators that may be situated close to vents, which can draw gas into the home. You may think you are keeping the family nice and warm, but you are exposing them to carbon monoxide. Keep appliances in good working order, and use them safely. Have them serviced regularly by a qualified and registered professional. Ask your utility company about yearly checkups for all gas appliances.

A kitchen stove was found to be one source of the leak in this article and the heating system is also being checked. The impacted apartment is part of a 5-unit complex. Firefighters said all units had missing or deactivated carbon monoxide detectors. There were no working smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.

THE “SILENT KILLER”

If the early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are ignored, a person may lose consciousness and be unable to escape the danger. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. It has no smell, no taste, and no sound. Neither people nor animals can tell when they are breathing it, but it can be fatal.

CARBON MONOXIDE STATISTICS

TX-6310-01-1_1_
What goes under the radar every single year is that over 20,000 people who are exposed to carbon monoxide and survive. There are long-lasting health issues when you are exposed to carbon monoxide over a long period time. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said about 430 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning each year and 50,000 are forced to seek medical care. 94 percent of CO poisonings occur in residential properties. The highest number of carbon monoxide related deaths occur in the winter months: December, January, or February. Given 374 carbon monoxide deaths and a total U.S. population of 319 million, the mortality rate from carbon monoxide poisoning is 1.2 deaths per one million Americans. 19 states, representing 41% of the U.S. population, had enacted regulations requiring carbon monoxide alarms in at least one major category of residence. Still, relying on people voluntarily using the alarms isn’t working – the CDC reports that only 30% of American homes have functioning carbon monoxide alarms.
Conclusions: Numbers of deaths and death rates, both accidental and intentional, due to carbon monoxide poisoning significantly declined in the United States due to enacting required residential carbon monoxide alarms.

CAUSES

You may be exposed to unsafe levels of carbon monoxide by:
• Using poorly maintained or unvented heating equipment.
• Improperly vented natural gas appliances like stoves or water heaters.
• Using a gas stove, grill, or oven to heat the home.
• Clogged chimneys or blocked heating exhaust vents can stop carbon monoxide from escaping.
• Cooking with a charcoal or gas grill inside the home or other enclosure.
• Using a propane camp stove, heater, or light inside a tent.
• Running vehicles in garages or other enclosed spaces. Leaving a car in a closed garage with its engine running can produce deadly amounts of carbon monoxide within 10 minutes.
• Running generators or gas-powered tools indoors or outside near windows, doors, or vents.
• Being near boat engine exhaust outlets.
• Fumes from certain paint removers and cleaning fluids can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
• House or building fires.
• Smoking cigarettes causes blood levels of carbon monoxide to rise.
Products that contain methylene chloride (dichloromethane) should be handled with care, because methylene chloride turns into carbon monoxide when it is breathed in.

Do you park your vehicle in the garage?

Carbon monoxide is present in the exhaust gases of automobile engines and is very poisonous. Motor vehicles are responsible for 57% of unintentional deaths due to carbon monoxide and were associated with 71% of deaths.

This man was working on a vehicle in his garage when he was overcome with fumes. The home was not registered or equipped with a carbon monoxide detector as required by law.

Do you have small children that live in your home? How about elderly parents or grandparents?

Did you know they are the most susceptible to carbon monoxide poisoning? Higher death rates were seen among black individuals, small children, and the elderly in winter months and in cold, high-altitude states. All people are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Unborn babies, infants, the elderly, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems are generally more at risk than others.

• Unborn babies. Fetal blood cells take up carbon monoxide more readily than adult blood cells do. This makes unborn babies more susceptible to harm from carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Children. Young children take breaths more frequently than adults do, which may make them more susceptible to carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Older adults. Older people who experience carbon monoxide poisoning may be more likely to develop brain damage.
Carbon monoxide poisoning can be especially dangerous for people who are sleeping or intoxicated. People may have irreversible brain damage or even be killed before anyone realizes there’s a problem. Carbon monoxide detectors can be life saving!

In this tragedy, a 72-year-old woman was found unresponsive in her home along with a 5-year-old girl. Firefighters found the stove still hot to the touch and measured the highest carbon monoxide levels in the kitchen. There were no carbon monoxide detectors present and in this case a detector may have saved a life.

SYMPTOMS

Persons with carbon monoxide poisoning often overlook the symptoms.
Signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may include:
• Dull headache
• Weakness
• Dizziness
• Nausea or vomiting
• Shortness of breath
• Confusion
• Blurred vision
• Loss of consciousness

Undetected exposure can be fatal. If carbon monoxide levels are high enough, you may become unconscious or die. Exposure to moderate and elevated levels of carbon monoxide over extended periods of time has also been linked with increased risk of heart disease.
How is carbon monoxide harmful to the body? Carbon monoxide is harmful when breathed because it displaces oxygen in the blood and deprives the heart, brain, and other vital organs of oxygen. Copious amounts of carbon monoxide can overcome you in minutes without warning—causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin over 200 times more easily than oxygen does, so if carbon monoxide is present, oxygen will not be able to find space to get into the hemoglobin. This is because the space is occupied with carbon monoxide instead. As a result, parts of the body will be starved of oxygen, and the affected parts will die. The human body needs oxygen, but it has no use for carbon monoxide. If we breathe in carbon monoxide, it provides no benefit, but it deprives the blood of oxygen.

The warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning can be subtle. But the condition is a life-threatening medical emergency. If you think you or someone you’re with may have carbon monoxide poisoning, get into fresh air, and seek emergency medical care. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be reversed if caught in time.

This couple had only lived in their home for two and a half weeks when they were hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning. The husband was treated in a hyperbaric chamber to replace the dangerous level of carbon monoxide in his blood with oxygen.

PREVENTION

Alarms_Graphic2
If household appliances are well serviced and used safely, they should produce negligible quantities of carbon monoxide gas. Using old appliances, and not servicing them frequently, leads to a higher risk of carbon monoxide emission. Keep appliances in good working order, and use them safely. Have them serviced regularly by a qualified and registered professional. Ask your utility company about yearly checkups for all gas appliances, including your furnace. This is also an appropriate time to check the batteries in all your detectors and to check with your security company to make sure everything is up and running properly. It is important to be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. An alarm should be placed in every sleeping area in the house and should be checked regularly.

Simple precautions can help prevent the leakage of carbon monoxide & carbon monoxide poisoning:
• Install carbon monoxide detectors. Put one in the hallway near each sleeping area in your house. Check the batteries every time you check your smoke detector batteries — at least twice a year. If the alarm sounds, leave the house and call 911 or the fire department. Carbon monoxide detectors are also available for motor homes and boats.
• Make sure all rooms are well ventilated and that vents are not blocked. Be especially careful in well-insulated environments.
• Open the garage door before starting your car. Never leave your car running in your garage. Be particularly cautious if you have an attached garage. Leaving your car running in a space attached to the rest of your house is never safe, even with the garage door open. Do not leave any other type of gasoline-powered motor running in a garage at all. For example, motorbikes, cars, or lawn mowers.
• Service the exhaust pipe in a motor vehicle every year.
• If the tailgate of a vehicle is open and the engine is running, open the doors and windows too.
• Use gas appliances as recommended. Never use a gas stove or oven to heat your home. Use portable gas camp stoves outdoors only. Use fuel-burning space heaters only when someone is awake to monitor them, and doors or windows are open to provide fresh air. Don’t run a generator in an enclosed space, such as the basement or garage. Never use a generator within 20 feet of a window, door, or vent. Be careful when using gas-powered tools and equipment inside rooms. And always wear a mask when using products that contain methylene chloride.
• Keep your fuel-burning appliances and engines properly vented. These include:
o Space heaters
o Furnaces
o Charcoal grills
o Cooking ranges
o Water heaters
o Fireplaces
o Portable generators
o Wood-burning stoves
o Car and truck engines
• If you have a fireplace, keep it in good repair. Have chimneys and flues swept thoroughly regularly by a fully-qualified sweep, at least once a year.
• Keep vents and chimneys unblocked during remodeling. Check that they aren’t covered by tarps or debris.
• Do repairs before returning to the site of an incident. If carbon monoxide poisoning has occurred in your home, it’s critical to find and repair the source of the carbon monoxide before you stay there again. Your local fire department or utility company may be able to help.

The CDC advises every household to install a carbon monoxide alarm. Some detectors have a digital readout. Others give out a loud, high-pitched sound when levels of carbon monoxide pass a certain limit. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, long-term exposure to 1 to 70 ppm of CO will not normally cause any harm, but people with heart problems may have chest pain. Levels of over 70 ppm may cause noticeable symptoms, and if they reach above 150 to 200 ppm, they may cause disorientation, unconsciousness, and death.

2017 was a busy and exciting year for Central Jersey Security Cameras! We were ranked #36 in the fastest growing security companies by Security Dealer and Integrator magazine which is a national magazine! We have grown so much that we have moved into a much larger building in July located at 620 Rt. 9 South, Freehold, New Jersey. Our staff has continued to grow right alongside the growth of the company. This summer, we even hired our first summer intern. With our continued growth, we also continue with all the training for our technicians to be knowledgable in the latest and up to date technology to best serve our valued customers. Owner Bob Murphy received an award earlier this year from LTSecurity for being the largest buyer in the U.S. LTSecurity is one of the leading distributors of surveillance technology. LTSecurity has 13 branches located throughout the U.S. Central Jersey Security Cameras also took part in various charity events such as the Trunk or Treat hosted by PAL as well as donate to the SPCA in February as well as during the hurricane relief just to name a few. As this year comes to a close, Central Jersey Security Cameras owner Robert Murphy would like to thank everyone that has made 2017 such a successful year.

With this year coming to an end and the new year among us, how many of you are going out with your friends and family to ring in the new year? Are you worried about leaving your home for the night? Don’t be! Have security cameras and an alarm installed in and around your home and always be aware of what is going on in and around your home, even when you are not. Are you getting in that last minute shopping preparing for the new year? Whether it be that you’re hitting the grocery store to get those hors d’oeuvres and finger food snacks, or the liquor store for that bottle of champagne, or even the party store for those finishing touches on your decorations and party favors, know that your home is safe and secure! Listed below are some tips to follow this New Years Eve.

TOP 5 TIPS to keep your home safe this New Years Eve while you are out watching the ball drop and ringing in the new year!
1. Lock your doors and windows before you go.
2. Make sure your home is well lit when it gets dark out.
3. Don’t post on social media that you are not home (it’s an invitation to burglars to come on in!)
4. Check your security cameras to make sure they are on.
5. Don’t forget to turn on your alarm.

With today’s security cameras, you can check on your home at any time right from the palm of your hand! Get those crisp, clear pictures right on your smart phone when you have remote views set up with your cameras. Another advantage to security cameras with remote views is that you can be out and away from your home, but still be alerted by your smart phone by setting alerts to notify you when someone steps within a perimeter you set on your property on your cameras.

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 smart phone to do much more! Just to name a few key features you can use right from your smart phone:
• You can turn your lights on and off at your home.
• You can lock and unlock your doors.
• You can control your thermostat.

Burglars often look for homes that are easy hits. Most of the items burglars look for, such as jewelry, electronics, gold, silver, and guns are easy to sell at a pawn shop, which makes them more appealing to a burglar. If you do not have your home secure with a home security system, the odds are not in your favor. It is a known national statistic that a home is broken into every 15 seconds!

WALKING INTO YOUR DARK HOME, MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE HOME EVEN WHEN YOU ARE OUT AND ABOUT.
Are you uncomfortable walking into your dark home when you return home from your night out? 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. When you aren’t home, make it look like you are home. You are also able to control your heat while you are away with this alarm system! With all the advances in alarms this past year with the launch of the new Ultra-Sync alarm home automation, you can now not only be alerted when someone is at your home, but you have access to using all these features that make your life more convenient away from home. You can even lock and unlock your doors without digging for those keys in your pocket. Take advantage of the key features our ultra-sync has to offer. To learn more about what the Ultra-Sync can do for your home visit our webpage.

HAVE YOUR HOME PROTECTED WITH SECURITY CAMERAS.
Home security cameras are the number one deterrent from a burglar breaking into your home! Time and time again, we see a criminal look right into the camera, and walk away. In many cases we find a neighbor or someone down the block without the protection of security cameras becomes the unintended victim of the burglar. Double up on your home security! Get yourself an alarm system and security cameras for your home. Don’t call when it’s too late!

LEAVING THE CHILDREN WITH A BABY SITTER TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR?
Are you leaving your children with a baby sitter while you go out to watch the ball drop and ring in the new year? Your children are precious to you. Know that they are being taken care of and treated the way that you wish. You can do that by having security cameras installed, whether they are installed in plain sight or hidden. Do you miss them while you’re away from home? Take a look at them via your cameras. We have an app where you can see them remotely right on your phone. Are your kids old enough to not need a sitter and are able to stay home alone? Do you want to know if your kids have invited their friends over while you are out for the night? Check in and make sure they’re not having a little party of their own thinking they’re sneaky and you’ll never catch 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.

Many families in New Jersey try to keep their loved ones safe in the home with them, but unfortunately you cannot be everywhere all the time. With security cameras placed at your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around the home. Would you like to know every time a door is opened in 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. 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 crossing detection, we can also put cameras inside the home in areas you may need to watch. 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.

Just like all other seasons, make sure to lock your doors when you leave the home. Check that your cameras and that your alarm is working properly and make sure to leave your home looking occupied if you leave for an extended period of time. With the upcoming holidays you spend away from home with family and friends, know your home is safe. Don’t let the fear of your home’s safety stop you from doing the things you love. Know that you can enjoy that glass of champagne while you’re counting down the new year.. Don’t let a burglar take that peace of mind and holiday joy away from you. 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. Get yourself and your family protected. If you don’t already have a home security camera or alarm system, or if you want to update your current system, give us a call at Central Jersey Security Cameras for a free estimate.
