Spring Break: A Safe, Fun, Exciting Time…Right?

Spring Break: A Safe, Fun, Exciting Time…Right?

1

With Spring quickly approaching make sure you know what is going on in and around your home and/or place of business. Spring Break is a huge time for people to celebrate the warm weather, breaks from school, and the fact that the Summer months will soon be here. It’s a time where families and friends get together and spend many afternoons by the pool, at the boardwalk, or just taking it easy. It is also a very popular time for high school and college students to throw house parties. With popular towns like Seaside, Asbury, Belmar, Wildwood, and Point Pleasant, our state becomes a very fun place to celebrate. Although it is a very exciting time for everyone, most parents don’t get off from work to keep an eye on what’s going on at home. Don’t you want to make sure your home and the people in it are safe and secure? Allow us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras to help!

What are the risks during Spring Break?

Its no surprise to many of us that a lot of Spring break parties consist of underage drinking. Statistics from the Office of Juvenile Justice found that people between the ages of 12-20 drink 11% of alcohol consumed in the U.S. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA) did a study in 2014 that determined almost half of all college students binge drink and take it to the extreme during Spring break. Another study done by the American College of Health determined the average college male drinks about 18 drinks per day on Spring break while the average college female drinks up to 10. These numbers are well over the safe level of alcohol consumption. With the installation of security cameras in your home it will deter your high schoolers and college kids from throwing parties this Spring break and make them second guess the choices they make when you aren’t home.

Are there other risks we should be concerned about?

-Half of full-time college students have reported drinking, using prescription drugs, or using illicit drugs during Spring break

-More than 690,000 students (ages 18-24) have reported being assaulted by an individual who has been drinking

-More than 97,000 students (ages 18-24) have reported experiencing some form of sexual abuse from an individual who has been drinking

-Over 599,000 students (ages 18-24) have had unintentional injuries as a result of alcohol consumption

-Theft is extremely common during Spring break because a lot of people leave their wallets and purses in unsecure places while partying

Let us here at Central Jersey Security Cameras help in ensuring that your home and the people in it are safe. Not only do we offer security cameras and alarms, we also offer a feature called line crossing detection, or intrusion detection. This is a function of your DVRNVR or IP camera. Line crossing detection 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. You will be able to set this to work on a schedule for when you aren’t home. Keep track of the people entering your home when you aren’t there.

My Kid? NEVER…!

Certainly, we should hope and trust that our children will make safe decisions and be responsible this Spring break. Unfortunately, peer pressure plays a big role at high school and college parties. A lot of times teens and young adults feel that they should engage in risky behavior just because “everyone’s doing it” or because “its cool” to fit in which can result in bad decision making especially when alcohol is involved. Let’s work together to ensure that your children make responsible decisions this Spring break by installing security cameras inside your home!

I have a pool and a huge backyard; how will I be able to see what’s going on outside?

Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we have the proper equipment to fit everyone’s needs. Our team of well-trained technicians would be happy to install security cameras on the outside of your house and yes, even by your pool! We have a wide selection of dome cameras and bullet cameras that are weatherproof and waterproof so you will still be able to clearly view what is going on in or outside of your home. The main difference between both dome and bullet cameras is their appearance. Bullet cameras are recommended for outside mainly because of its double EXIR Infrareds built into some models thus causing the night vision to be extended an additional 40 to 50 feet.

I own a business, should I be concerned about Spring breakers?

Beach towns become much busier once the weather gets warmer. If you own a business near the beach or on the boardwalk, we can help to ensure that your place of business is safe and secure during and after hours. A lot of teens and college students tend to let loose and be carefree during Spring break, which can unfortunately result in them becoming rowdy and irresponsible. Not only is the boardwalk a popular place for Spring breakers, it is also very busy for those celebrating Easter! Seaside, Point Pleasant, and Wildwood offer Easter egg hunts right on the boardwalk. Jenkinson’s boardwalk in Point Pleasant is also offering an Easter 2-for-1 sale on amusement ride tickets. April is a very busy time for our beach towns and boardwalks, make sure your protecting one the places that matters most to you.

With the installation of security cameras on the inside or outside of your business you will be able to view any suspicious behavior that may take place. It is extremely difficult to keep an eye on everyone that enters and exits your place of business, especially when you’re working in a highly populated area. Shops located near and on the boardwalk see thousands of people each day during the warmer months. With the installation of security cameras, you can feel more comfortable knowing that you have an extra set of eyes to catch any risky behavior, and you will also be able to contact the proper authorities in the case that something does happen.

I rent out my home during the Spring and Summer months, should I be worried?

The warmer months are a very popular time for people to rent vacation homes, especially here at the Jersey Shore. With places like Wildwood, Seaside, Point Pleasant, and more, our state becomes much more populated during the Spring and Summer months. Keep track of what is happening in your rental homes when they are being occupied by tenants. With the installation of security cameras, you can ensure that your home is being respected and well taken care of while being rented out this Spring break season. Our team of technicians can help you in deciding which camera’s best fit your needs and place them in the common areas of your home (driveways, front and back doors, the garage, stair wells). However, cameras will not be placed in changing rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, and laundry areas in order to respect your tenant’s privacy.

How will installing cameras help in keeping our children safe this Spring break?

Of course, Spring break is worth celebrating! But we must ensure that our children are doing it in a safe and responsible way. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras our well-trained team of technicians can help you in choosing the proper equipment for your home. Our remote view cameras are very popular and will allow you to see what is taking place in your home by viewing it on your smart phone, tablet, or computer. This will show you a clear live video of what is happening and will allow you to take action in the case that you need to. We also offer a feature called line crossing detection. This feature will send you an alert right to your phone when somebody walks up to your front door or pulls into your driveway. Line intrusion is a nice feature for having your cameras professionally installed. Surely it will help ease your worries and concerns for who is in your home when you can’t be there to see for yourself.

Can I save footage from the 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. Keep an eye on what’s going on in your home during this popular party season and feel comfortable knowing exactly what is taking place at that exact time.

If an event were to occur, for example, somewhere within a 24-hour period but you’re not quite sure when the event happened, you can jump around to time frames with our event schedule. This appears as a color-coded event list. It allows you to jump ahead to all motion triggered events, thus making your search much quicker. If your cameras are set to record all the time, even with nothing moving in front of them, it could shorten the life of the hard drive space. With the event schedule you could save space and lengthen the time on your NVR/DVR.

I’m not too tech savvy, what if I need help after the install?

Not only does Central Jersey Security Cameras have a help tab on our website that has step by step videos for you to follow along with, we also offer technical support as well. Our well-trained technical personnel are in our office daily to answer any questions you may have about your security system. Out technicians receive monthly training on our security products to keep their knowledge fresh. They will explain the process of the installation before starting the job and will make it a point to keep you informed on all progress. They will also provide you with a full tutorial at the conclusion of the install.  We do our best here at Central Jersey Security Cameras to ensure that you have all the information you need to be able to properly use your system.

Keeping Your Home and Business Safe, How Prepared are You?

Jackson, Watchung , Cranford, Morris Township, Scotch Plains, South Plainfield, Linden, East Brunswick, South Brunswick, North Brunswick, Manalapan, Wayne, Pompton lakes , and Elmwood park NJ what do each of these NJ towns have in common? They have all had homes that have been burglarized since January 2017. So, why is it important to point out the above towns have all had homes that have been burglarized when in the United States there is a home broken into every 15 seconds what makes these towns stand out in the news?
As of January 2017 NJ has a new bail reform, under the new rules nearly all defendants are expected to be released back out into the public with no monetary bail. This new bail reform has resulted the following headlines in the media over the past few weeks:
George Pescavage - 47 - of North Brunswick
YOU WON’T BELIEVE HOW MANY TIMES THIS ACCUSED BURGLAR HAS BEEN RELEASED
Jason Major - 34 - of Hopatcong
AUTHORITIES IN SUSSEX SEEK TO DETAIN ALLEGED SERIAL BURGLAR
Dawud Ward - 23 - of Plainfield
BAIL REFORM AGAIN TAKES HEAT FROM COPS AFTER ALLEGED REPEAT BURGLAR ARREST
Jackson, Watchung, Cranford, Morristown ship, Scotch Plains, South Plainfield, Linden, East Brunswick, South Brunswick, North Brunswick, Manalapan, Wayne, Prompton lakes, and Elmwood park NJ all have had homes that have been burglarized, and the accused burglars were all released and last least three if the same accused burglars were picked up again by law enforcement for allegedly committing the same crimes again. Scary to think with the new bail reform if your home was burglarized and the person that was caught in your home can be released, without bail, and in many cases the same day to burglarize another home, or worse try to come back and finish the job at your home.
On Average, a homeowner that was a victim of a home burglary has a loss of $2230.00. Many NJ households do not make $2230.00 in a week, how long does it take for your house hold to make that amount? Not only does a family that is victimized by a burglar stuffer a loss in a monetary amount they also suffer emotionally, in many cases. Their home may no longer feel safe.
Burglary Statistics every NJ homeowner should know
• In the US a Burglary/home invasion happens every 15 seconds
• Average loss per homeowner that has had a burglary is $2,230
• 34% of burglars enter though the front door
• 65% of Burglaries happen between 6am-6pm (while most of us are at work )
• Most Criminals can Burglarize a home in less than 10 minutes
• Most burglars start in the master bedroom
Burglars are always looking for homes or businesses that are easy targets
Homeowners and business owners alike can help protect their home or business by making a few security improvements
1. Lock your doors, and make sure all door and window locks are secure, and in proper working order
2. Install and maintain a home alarm system, have your alarm connected to a UL listed central station monitoring. (alarms are a deterrent to an intruder)
3. Look at installing a home security camera system to your home or business preferably one with intrusion detection
Intrusion detection/perimeter or area notations otherwise known as line crossing detection

• Line crossing detection, or Intrusion detection, is a function of your Dvr, Nvr or IP camera. What it does is instantly detect any motion in a certain “set”, set by you. 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 well as a virtual Tripwire. In essence what it will do is activate when the area or line is breached and send you a notification either directly through the app or to your email, whichever you choose. You can even have audible alerts right on site through and external siren or right from the Dvr or Nvr.

• You may want to know when the kids get home from school or if the delivery person is at your front door, so you would set up a virtual intrusion area at your front door. You can set this to work on schedules, certain hours during the day, and 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 you’re “set” area or areas. While both High Definition and IP cameras and 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 to 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.

• Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we offer instructional videos (below) to walk you through the entire process on setting up your security system to send you the alerts when areas are breached or lines 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.

So, now you know burglars are looking for easy targets, the statistics and know with the new bail reform in NJ the average burglars even when caught can be back out on the streets to commit more damage to NJ families or NJ Business what can you do?
