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.

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.

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+.

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.’)

Security Cameras added to a home are a great deterrent to any would be crime. This past July in Jackson NJ on a quiet suburban street one filled with families with children was poof of how security cameras truly are a deterrent. Two homes where robbed within a few weeks of each other. The two homes that were robbed both did not have security cameras. However, the houses on each side of the homes where the robberies took place all had security cameras in place!
In a study conducted by Campus safety magazine on June 25th 2013 the presence of video surveillance is an effective deterrent. Nearly 60% of the burglars said they would consider the presence of cameras or other video equipment when selecting a target and more than 40% said that would be a factor in prompting them to choose another target.
So for homeowners in Jackson NJ this past summer having cameras installed truly paid off.
