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 Can You Be Sure Your Home is Safe While Out for Super Bowl LIII?

Super-Bowl-LIII-Logo-2

That time of year is coming around again… SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!  Whether or not it is your fan favorite team that has made it to the final two or your most hated opponent, it is a game that we all tend to gather and watch in a large group. This year we get to watch the Los Angeles Rams take on a team that’s not so unfamiliar to the big game, the New England Patriots. Whether you are the one hosting the big party or if you are going out to an establishment, joining your family or just hanging with some friends at their home for the big game, wouldn’t you like to know your home is secure? While you are out enjoying the big game waiting to see if Tom Brady will in fact gain another Superbowl ring or if the Los Angeles Rams take their first Superbowl win as the Los Angeles Rams, you should not have to worry about if your home is being burglarized. If your home does not have a security system, the odds are not in your favor! This is where Central Jersey Security Cameras can help you. Call us today and we can access what home security system will work best to benefit you and your homes needs.

Your home is probably one of the biggest investments that you will ever make and it’s the one place you should truly feel the safest. It is a known statistic that a home is broken into every 15 seconds. The average home burglar loves this time of the year as we are all busy, whether it be out shopping or visiting family. They also know it’s that time of year that the expensive electronics make their way into your home. All those new game systems that came out that you purchased for a loved one for Christmas, that nice big screen TV you’ve been waiting to get for yourself to watch the big game on with family and friends… they’re all enticements for these burglars. Keeping your home safe in today’s world means becoming diligent with your home’s security needs. Get your home protected! Have a security camera system installed.

BE-PROTECTED-WITH-A-COMPREHENSIVE-HOME-SECURITY-SYSTEM

Often what we see at Central Jersey Security Cameras is a would-be criminal walk up to a home, look right up at 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.

Here are 5 home tips to help you secure your home:
1. Take a good look at your home – Most burglars decide within five minutes whether your home is a good target for them.
-Look at your home during the day. Can just anyone look inside your home, walk up, and see no one is inside?
-Look at your home at night when the lights are on in your home. Can just anyone see that new expensive TV system you bought from the street?
Both day and night views of your home are important for a burglar to check out, so beat them to it. Take a look and get protected!
2. Examine each point of entry to your home. Today, burglars have YouTube, which has thousands of lock picking videos. These videos can help a pro get into your home, with a standard lock in many cases, in less than a minute. A window can be broken in less than a minute as well. Here is where you need to take a close look at adding a home alarm system to your house. If someone opens a door or breaks a window, (as long as you have glass breaks or motion sensors), your home alarm will sound, in many cases scaring the burglar away, and the proper authorities will be on their way to your home.
3. Be careful what you post on social media!! Going out for the big game and think it’s a good idea to brag to your friends? Think again. This is social media – even with the “friends only” setting on, anyone can take a picture of your post with their cell phone and now show millions of people you are away and that no one will be in your home for days.
4. Identify and remove enticements from clear views. Home invasions and home robberies happen for a reason. A burglar wants to be confident that your home is worth the trouble. You need to make sure when you get that new expensive TV, DVR, and home appliance that you do not leave boxes out in front of your home or have them visible in your trash. If a prospective robber goes past your home and sees you have new goodies in your home, you may become a target. Make sure you dispose of boxes to pricey items in black trash bags.
5. GET home security and keep it up to date!!! Adding security cameras and alarms is a great idea, but they are useless if they don’t work properly. When choosing home security, it’s an investment, and when making this investment, you need to think quickly but hard on the choice you make when you choose the company to do your home security. Shop around and be sure the company you choose is BBB accredited. Read the company reviews and make sure the Central Station Monitoring you choose is UL listed. (As a side note don’t forget to check with your homeowner’s insurance. Many companies offer a discount to homeowners with UL listed alarms, and now some companies offer discounts for installing security camera systems to your home. Check with your provider to see the discounts they are willing to offer.)

Protect your family and your assets. Surveillance cameras in plain view are a “proven guaranteed deterrent” by persuading potential intruders to move on. With professionally installed security cameras, you gain that peace of mind knowing your home is safe and secure, even when you are not there to see for yourself. Watch your home live remotely while you’re out watching the big game from your smart phones or other portable devices with remote views. You are now able to look in on your home and see for yourself, knowing what is taking place around the home when you are not able to be there. With today’s security cameras, you can check on your home at any time, whether it be at half time or right after the winning touchdown 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 you can be out and be alerted by your smart phone when someone steps within a perimeter you set on your property. Would you like an alert sent right to your smart phone when someone walks up to your front sidewalk or pulls in the driveway? With our professionally installed HD security cameras, you can set up a perimeter around your house, arm a specific area or individual cameras to send an instant notification to your mobile device when the area is entered or “breached”. You will receive this notification right to your smart phone that will include the persons or movement that triggered the alarm within seconds of it actually happening. This feature is called line intrusion that we can set up on your security cameras. The best part, there is no monthly charge! This is a free bonus to having your security cameras professionally installed.

WHAT IS LINE CROSSING DETECTION?
Line crossing detection, or intrusion detection, is a function of your DVRNVR or IP camera. What it does is that it instantly detects any motion in a certain “set”, which is a set area that is personally set by you for your alert needs. It will send immediate alerts to your smart device directly from the DVRNVR  or IP camera. For example, you want to know when someone or something enters your driveway? So, you go into the software of your DVRNVR or IP camera and start setting up specific areas by drawing lines across the driveway. Of course, these are not visible lines to the human eye since it is only a virtual line or perimeter you have created, but it acts just as good as a virtual tripwire. 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.

Double up on your home security just like the NFL doubles up on the referees officiating the Superbowl. Have the security you need by having an alarm system put in place to notify you when someone is trying to break into your home. Homes that add an alarm system to their home with security cameras installed have added protection to their homes. Homes with the added protection of a home alarm system and security cameras are a burglar’s worst nightmare. Now not only were they caught on tape by the security cameras, but they now alerted the proper authorities by setting off an alarm system. Chances are they will be caught on the spot. With the footage from your security cameras, you now have the proof of what took place at your home.

Today’s home alarms are more than a loud shirking noise when they go off! Most are connected to central station monitoring for a small monthly fee that will alert the proper authorities when the alarm is triggered. With advances in alarms this past year with the launch of the new UltraSync 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. Features like arming and disarming your system from your phone is only the beginning!

Audience

While you’re out for the big game, it’s expected that you will get home late. Nobody likes to walk into a dark home.  Don’t come home to a dark house. With the convenience of the home automation  features the UltraSync has to offer, you can now turn your lights on and off or set them on a timer right from the palm of your hand using your smartphone and a touch of your finger. Just like that, with a touch of your finger, you can have your home set to be bright and lit up for when you are pulling up to your home and the front door unlocked before even getting out of the car to go inside for the night. You don’t even have to fiddle with those keys after your long night out enjoying the game. The same goes for your thermostat. Have the thermostat set to the perfect temperature for you when you walk through the door from a long work day. To learn more about what the UltraSync can do for your home, visit our webpage.

What kind of cameras are good for my home?

Central Jersey Security Cameras will look at your home and help you decide what is best for your unique home and determine what cameras are best for your home’s needs. Our trained staff will listen closely to what your needs are and look at exactly where you need the most coverage around your home and how far from your home you may need to view with your security cameras. With that information, they will effectively be able to design and offer a product that will surely meet your needs and budget. Technical support personnel is available in our offices daily to answer any questions you may have about the functionality of your system.

 

Do these cameras have clear night vision?

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 in no light at all. 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.

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 absolutely 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. Keep in mind that cameras without infrared lighting will not capture an image with zero 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, nighttime viewing.

The image that infrared cameras capture is black and white – however, some cameras will capture color images during the day when light is available and will automatically switch to black and white when light is low.
Times are changing and there has been a significant breakthrough in night vision with the introduction of EXIR or Matrix IR’s. Hikvision pioneered this type of technology and we at Central Jersey Security Cameras noticed a tremendous difference in the quality of the picture at night. These cameras incorporate Hikvision’s EXIR infrared array technology to provide best-in-breed illuminators for any zero-dark environment – indoors or out. Compared to conventional IR cameras, Hikvision’s high-performance EXIR series delivers the most advanced levels of night-time surveillance available on the market today.

These EXIR cameras (a highly-efficient light source and enhanced LED light strength. By employing the most advanced thin-film and light-emitting technology, this series provides up to 30% more illuminant efficiency over traditional LED array technology. Furthermore, the EXIR series even provides a 40% light-extraction rate improvement when compared to traditional models, resulting in a stronger light for long-range visibility usage.

To make the most out of IR LED light, EXIR HD and IP cameras produce LED light in the form of a rectangle. This allows a better fit for a screen’s normal size (4:3 or 16:9). Additionally, it helps improve LED utilization efficiency and reduce light pollution in the surrounding environment. Images are further optimized with EXIR’s luminance uniformity functionality, which eliminates traditional LED lens issues, such as over-exposure at the center of images, as well as darker areas at the corners. EXIR HD/IP cameras deliver superb image detail in poorly lit environments, better providing for solutions at industrial parks, harbors, roads, airports, etc. Furthermore, excellent heat dissipation, longer lifespan, and greater energy savings are but a few of the advantages that Hikvision EXIR cameras bring. IP66 protection, in both bullet and dome styles, further provide users with options to best fit their specific needs.

Can I get an alert on my phone from my cameras?  

Would you like an alert sent right to your smartphone when someone walks up to your front sidewalk or pulls in the driveway? Well, Central Jersey Security Cameras in Freehold, NJ has a solution for this. With our professionally installed HD security cameras, you can set up a perimeter around your house, arm a specific area or individual cameras to send an instant notification to your mobile device when the area is entered or “breached”.

Can I save the footage from my security 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. Protect your family and your assets. Surveillance cameras in plain view are a “proven guaranteed deterrent” by persuading potential intruders to move on.

Event schedule, meaning that if an incident occurs somewhere for example in a 24-hour period and you are not sure when the event happened, instead of sitting through endless hours of reviewing until the event is found you would have indicators. Most likely a color-coded event list. This would enable you to jump ahead to all motion triggered events, thus making your search quicker and more successful. Conserving hard drive space, meaning if your cameras are set to record all the time, even with nothing moving in front of them you could potentially shorten the life of the hard drive and absolutely shorten the length of time your NVR/DVR will retain recordings.

Why an alarm system with security cameras are the best line of defense:

Home security cameras are the #1 deterrent on a home or business. Often criminals see security cameras and move on to the next location. The ones that try to outsmart security cameras often get caught because they do not know the capabilities on the range of today’s IP cameras. Look, at the inchworm bandits crawling on the floor!

No, unfortunately, these cameras did not stop this break-in from happening, but it is the proof this owner needs to show exactly what took place at their business location for their insurance. In this case, an alarm system doubled with security cameras would have helped alert the proper authorities and the business owners sooner.

Central Jersey Security Cameras believes after many years in the business and continuous training each year a whole home security system with a security camera system on the home and an alarm system is often the best protection a New Jersey homeowner can have on their home.

So, now you have to make sure you have the right alarm for your home too! It’s easy with today advances in alarms with our preferred alarm the UltraSync alarm. Some things to consider when you are looking for the right alarm system for your home.

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.

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.

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.’)
