Going on Vacation this Summer? Make Sure your Home is Safe and Secure

beach

Vacation is supposed to be a time to relax, unwind, and just take it easy. Many people look forward to the Summer months because it’s a very popular time to get away and spend time with friends and family. Whether you are going on a week-long vacation or just a weekend getaway, make sure your home and your belongings are safe and protected. Allow Central Jersey Security Camera’s to help with the installation of an alarm system and/or security cameras.

  • Homes that don’t have security systems are three times more likely to be robbed. When burglars are examining a home they typically check to see if the home has security cameras. If there is a visible security camera that the burglar notices, 9 out of 10 times they will move on to a different home. It is a known statistic that a home gets broken into every 15 seconds. Only 14% of homes in the country have security systems installed. Let us help keep you from becoming a statistic by keeping your home safe and secure.
  • Suburban homes are 50% more likely to be robbed. Suburban homes are typically located in lower traffic areas and a thief will usually have better access to all sides of the home. Thieves can easily identify where they will break in because they have access to the entire outside perimeter of the home.
  • Daytime hours are the most popular times for a burglary to occur (between 10am-3pm). Most people assume a robber will break in during the night while everyone is asleep. 65% of residential burglaries happen during the day when most people are at work and the kids are at school.
  • 1/3rd of all break ins occur through unlawful entry. 33% of home invasions happen by the burglar walking straight into the home through an unlocked door or climbing through an open window.

Below are a few simple tips that can lower your chances of becoming a victim of a robbery:

  1. Refrain from posting any valuable belongings on social media. When you post pictures of that new laptop you just bought or that new flat screen T.V you are showing everyone out there the new expensive items that are sitting in your home. Also, refrain from posting about your vacation until after you get back if no one is going to be watching your home while you’re away. If a robber knows that no one will be at your home for multiple days, it will make you a very easy target for them. Although your social media pages may be private, every person on your friends’ lists can view your posts and they can pass along the information to anybody.
  2. Make sure that no one can view any expensive items in your home from the street or sidewalk. Move any TV’s, expensive sound systems, computers, etc. out of clear view especially if your going to be away for X amount of days. Also, don’t throw away any boxes for expensive items in the outside trash cans. If a burglar sees a box for a brand new 60-inch flat screen TV now they know what is in your home and this would make your home a target.
  3. Be wary on who you open your door to. Thieves will sometimes knock on your door before planning a break in to get a better view of what valuables may be inside your home. Keep track on those who do knock on your door whom you don’t know.
  4. Get a home security system and keep them up to date! Getting a security system installed is a great idea to ensure your home is safe and protected but they aren’t as useful if they don’t work properly. Choosing home security is a big investment and when making this investment you need to think about the choice you make when choosing the company to install your home security systems. Be sure that the company you choose is BBB accredited. Read the company reviews and make sure the Central Station Monitoring you choose is UL listed. Also, check with your homeowner’s insurance. Many companies offer a discount to homeowners with UL listed alarms, some companies now offer a discount on installing security cameras to your home as well. Check with your provider to see what discounts they might offer.

What is the best option for my home?

Our team of well-trained technicians will help you feel confident that you are choosing the proper security equipment and placement to fit your home’s needs. Keep your family and belongings safe and secure while you’re away. We have two different types of cameras, one being dome shaped, the other being a bullet shaped. The main difference between the two is their appearance although we recommend bullet shaped cameras for outside. Some bullet cameras have double EXIR infrareds built into them causing their night vision to extend an additional 40-50 feet. You will be able to receive notifications or text messages of real time video from your security equipment. View what is taking place at your home when it happens through a live feed from your smartphone, tablet, or other portable devices. Use our event schedule to locate exactly when an event occurred that you may want to view. For example, if an even were to occur at your home within a 24-hour period but you aren’t sure of when it happened, you can use our event schedule which appears as a color-coded event list that allows you to jump ahead to all motion triggered events. If your cameras are set to record all the time it can shorten the space on your hard drive, even if there are no motion triggers. With the event schedule you can save space and lengthen the time on your DVR/NVR. Another useful tool to your cameras is line crossing detection. Take comfort in knowing your home is safe and secure even while you’re on vacation.

WHAT IS LINE CROSSING DETECTION?

Line crossing detection, also known as line intrusion, is a function of your NVR, DVR, or IP camera. It instantly detects any motion in a set area. This set area is personally set by you for your alert needs. You will get immediate alerts to your smart device from your camera. For example, say you want to get notified when someone pulls through your driveway or walks up to your front door. You would go into the software of your camera and start drawing specific lines across your driveway or walkway up to your house. This line is only a visual perimeter, so it is not visible to the human eye in person. If the line that you personally set becomes breached, you will get a notification through the app or to your email depending on which option you choose. You can set line crossing detection to work on schedules and during certain hours of the day. This is great if you are planning on going away because you can set it for every day you’re away and get notified if someone enters your property.

There are also sensitivity settings for line crossing detection. You may not want to be notified if a cat or other small animal enters your set area, therefore you would just adjust the scale to only be notified for larger objects. Get the protection your home needs by having a security system that notifies you when someone is at your home who isn’t supposed to be there. With footage from your security cameras, you now have proof of exactly what is happening when you aren’t there. Most home alarms are linked to central station monitoring for a small monthly fee that alerts the proper authorities once it’s set off. If you are planning on having someone stop by your home while you’re away, you can disarm it right from your smartphone and arm it again once they leave. Take it easy on your vacation by knowing Central Jersey Security Camera’s has your home safe and secure.

Listed below are some of the alarm systems we offer:

Security Alarm System Keypads
Keypads are an important part of your security system. They allow you to arm the system with a secured code. They can be placed wherever you need them most and are easy to use. Keypads feature emergency buttons that allow you to call for help immediately. If you are planning on having somebody watch your house or someone is staying home while you’re away, let them have peace of mind knowing that help is just the press of a button away. In the case of a power outage the buttons are lit still allowing you to view our keypad.

Door and Window Sensor
According to the NBFAA, 56% of burglars enter through a door, another 23% through the first-floor window. Door and window sensors are placed in these areas of vulnerability. When the contact is broken, the alarm is triggered.

Motion Detectors
Motion detectors are triggered when someone walks in view of the detector. If intruders enter your home through a door or window that is not protected by a sensor, the motion detector will act as a trap ensuring they don’t stay at your home for long. Motion detectors can be turned off when you are home while your windows and doors can still remain secured.

Panic Buttons
Panic sensors are designed to go just about anywhere. This sensor allows you to activate a 24-hour emergency alarm. Call for help with just a push of a button.

Alarm Sirens
An alarm siren provides peace of mind for you and acts as a deterrent for would-be intruders. When the alarm sounds an intruder will most likely leave your property as soon as possible.

Don’t spend your vacation being stressed and nervous about what could be taking place at your home. Take it easy and enjoy yourself to the fullest while you’re away. Let Central Jersey Security Camera’s help make that happen. You will be able to have peace of mind knowing exactly what is taking place in your home right from the palm of your hand. Central Jersey Security Camera’s is BBB accredited. Live your life to the fullest this vacation season while still ensuring your home and your valuables are safe and secure.

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.

With nearby towns like Toms River, Asbury Park, Brick, Seaside, Point Pleasant, and Belmar, you are not going to want to stay inside all Spring to keep an eye on your home. All these towns have multiple events coming up whether it be the opening of farmers markets, cook-offs, or local festivals, so be sure not to miss them while still making sure your home is being protected. With the installation of security cameras, you can feel comfortable leaving your house for the day while still knowing what’s taking place there from the palm of your hand. Our DVR, NPR, or IP cameras have a feature called line crossing detection, also known as line intrusion. Line crossing detection will instantly detect any motion in a personally set area that you design for all your alert needs. It will send notifications right to your smart device to notify you. If you want to be alerted when a specific part of your property detects motion you would go into the software and draw lines across the area you want to set. For example, say you want to be notified when someone walks up to your garage, you would draw the lines in front of the garage. These lines that you set are only a virtual perimeter therefore they are not visible to the human eye.

When the specific area you set is breached you will receive an alert through the app or directly to your email, depending on which option you choose. You can even have an audible alert on site through an external siren or from he DVR or NVR. You can set this to work on schedules, so when you’re out for the day enjoying the nice weather with your family and friends you will still be alerted.  There are sensitivity settings that you can adjust. For example, if you don’t want to be alerted when a rabbit or other small animal enters your yard, you would adjust the settings to measure larger objects.

You can never be too safe when it comes to protecting your family and your home. Double up on your home by getting an alarm system installed. Homes that add an alarm system as well as have security cameras have added protection to their home which is a burglar’s worst nightmare. Not only will the person who has entered your home be caught on tape; they have also alerted the proper authorities by setting off your alarm system. With the footage from the security camera you will know exactly what took place at your home. Most of today’s home alarms are linked to central station monitoring for a small monthly fee. This will alert the proper authorities when the alarm is triggered. With the new UltraSync alarm you won’t only just be alerted if someone is at your home, but right from the palm of your hand you will be able to do much more. Features like arming and disarming your system from your phone is only just the beginning!

Can the cameras view clearly at night?

Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we make sure to have the proper equipment to fit everyone’s needs. Our team of well-trained technicians would be happy to help you find the proper placement and choose the proper cameras for the outside. Infrared security cameras have infrared lighting (light from a different region of the electromagnetic spectrum than we normally use to see) installed around the outside of the camera lens. This allows the camera to capture a good image with no light at all. With a small amount of light, called low light, the infrared camera can capture an image that looks just like daytime. At night there is usually some light from the moon, stars, or street lights/

We don’t recommend using infrared cameras in outdoor housings because the light reflects off the glass of the housing. An alternative solution is to use a day/night camera which has an extra sensitive imaging chip that allows it to capture a good image in low light situations without infrared lighting. This works well if there are street lights outside or an exterior light can be left on at night. Cameras that don’t have infrared lights will not capture an image with zero light.

A cameras lux is the level of light to capture a good picture. The lower the cameras 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 lights out at night (in case of a break in) or for outside to view at night.

Infrared cameras capture black and white images however some cameras can capture color images during the day when the light is available and will automatically switch to black and white in low lighting. Times are changing and there has been a break through in night vision with the introduction of EXIR or Matrix IR’s. Hikvision pioneered this type of technology and we have noticed a great difference in the quality of the picture at night. 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 illuminate 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 our IR LED light, EXIR HD, and IP cameras, produce LED light in the form of a rectangle. This allows a better fit for a screens normal size (4:3 or 16:9). Additionally, this will 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 capture great image detail in poorly lit environments, better providing for solutions at parks, harbors, roads and airports.

Will my cameras notify me of suspicious activity?

With our professionally installed HD security cameras you can receive instant notifications right to your smart phone. You can set up a perimeter around your home, arm a specific area, or set individual cameras to sent you an alert right to your phone, this is known as line crossing detection or intrusion detection. To set a specific area you need to go into the software of your NVR, DVR, or IP camera and start drawing lines where you want your set area to be. For example, if you want to be notified when someone walks up our driveway or pulls in, you would draw a line where your driveway starts. This line is just a virtual line and is not visible to the human eye. Once the area that your specifically set is “breached” or detects motion, you will receive a notification within seconds of the even taking place. There is a sensitivity setting that you can adjust to meet your needs. For example, if you don’t want to be notified when a small animal enters your driveway or yard you would just adjust the sensitivity to only notify you for heavier objects. The best part about this feature is that there is no monthly charge. This feature is a free bonus to having your security cameras professionally installed by us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras!

What if I have questions after the install?

We would be happy to help you with any questions you may have about your system even after our technicians leave! Not only do we have a help tab on our website with step by step instructional videos for you to follow along with, we also offer technical support as well.

They will provide you with a full tutorial at the end of the installation to make sure you have all the information you need to properly use your security system.

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

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.

With that being said, East Brunswick has a multitude of housing choices from single family homes, to townhouses, to condominium and apartment complexes. East Brunswick is also known to host a strong medical presence, in fact Central Jersey’s largest radiology group is headquartered here. East Brunswick is home to the Tower Center Complex which includes two office towers that are among the tallest structures in Central Jersey that can be seen for miles, a Hilton Hotel, a Holiday Inn Express hotel, a convention center and one of the township’s regional commuter park-and-ride facilities.
The five-mile stretch of Route 18 within the township is lined with stores, offices and eating establishments. There are supermarkets, movie theaters, three large and several small shopping malls, the largest of which is the Brunswick Square Mall, a one million square foot complex.

 

With all these homes and businesses, Central Jersey Security Cameras has been very busy in East Brunswick. Home owners have been installing the Ultrasync alarm panel in their homes as well as in their business. In addition to Ultrasync alarm systems, many residents and business owners are making their homes and business secure with surveillance systems. Police have now asked home owners and businesses to register their surveillance cameras with the police department as a tool to keep crime down in this area. East Brunswick has already adopted this program. East Brunswick still has a lot of future growth to come in the next several years and Central Jersey Security Cameras is looking forward to teaming up with the future business and home owners to come.

 

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.

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.

laptop-karacsonyra

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. This can make having your home broken into or invaded by an unwanted intruder devastating. If this unfortunate event takes place at your home, you may wonder if you will ever feel safe again in your own home. Is that a chance you’re willing to take? Why risk it? Keeping your home safe in today’s world means becoming diligent with your home’s security needs.

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. Double up on your home security! Get yourself an alarm system and security cameras for your home. Many families in New Jersey and throughout the tristate area are doing so today.

The average home burglar loves this time of the year as we are all busy out shopping and visiting family. They 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 just in time for Christmas, that nice big screen TV you’ve been waiting to get for yourself… they’re all enticements for these burglars. Think smart, don’t advertise your new expensive items. Dispose of their boxes properly by breaking them down and placing them in black trash bags. Your home can possibly be being watched by just about anyone like the professional burglar or the junkie looking for a quick steal to make cash fast. Don’t make it easy! No burglar wants to be caught on film on your security cameras. So, what do you do? You get your home protected!

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. So, this holiday season it’s time to take action on keeping your home safe. Call Central Jersey Security Cameras and get your home protected.

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 while looking in 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 away with the family for Christmas 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. This Christmas, you need to make sure when you get that new expensive TV, game system, 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. Don’t advertise all your new electronics to would-be thieves. Remember to break your boxes down this Christmas in an effort to disguise your new valuables. 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.)

Have the security you need this holiday season by having an alarm system put in place to notify you when someone is trying to break into your home. Not only do we do alarm systems, but we also do security camera systems. Don’t let that Grinch like burglar ruin your holidays! Call Central Jersey Security Cameras today! 732-333-0227

Don’t forget, home security also makes a perfect gift for a loved one that will keep giving for many many years to come!!!!

Who is Knocking at your front door?

How safe is it the person on the other side of your door?

We have all taught our kids to never open the door for a stranger However, as adults most of us do not take those same safety precautions before answering the door? In today’s society, you can’t trust that the person on the other side of the door is a friendly visitor. Of course we all want to go to the door just answer it and see who is there but today you have to be smart and think back to telling your children why they can’t just whip the door open you just don’t know who is there or what their intentions are.
Here is where a home security system on your home can help you and your family stay safe:

• Use a security camera to see who is at the door. Make the camera visible. A camera could deter someone with devious intentions. The camera itself will allow you to see who is at the door.
Here is also where you many want to consider having an alarm installed and have you key fob in your hand when you decide to answer the door if the person at the door make you feel you are in danger you can hit your panic button to dispatch the police
• Interact with the visitor using an intercom. This is an effective and affordable way to talk with a stranger without actually answering the door.
• Trust your instincts, your instincts are often right so, If your gut is telling you that something is wrong, then don’t open the door!!
It only takes a second for a criminal to seize and opportunity and bring harm to you and your family. Why take chances keep you and your loved ones safe for a free on site evaluation of your home call 732 333 0227 central Jersey Security cameras today!
