Ensure your Vehicles are Protected with a Home Security System

car1

In 2018 and so far in 2019 we have seen a fair amount of car burglaries. Just a few weeks ago a 16-year-old from Roselle was arrested and charged with a slew of thefts in that happened in Cranford, NJ. These thefts occurred from May 7-9 and each incident took place at night. Various items were taken from unlocked vehicles. Theft from parked cars is one of the most common complaints police receive in residential neighborhoods. According to the U.S Department of Justice statistics, these types of crimes make up 36% of all larcenies that are reported to the police. Thefts from vehicles typically involve smaller dollar values regarding property that is stolen, but they take up considerable police resources and increase residents’ fear of falling victim to vehicle theft.

Below are the three general reasons that cars are often stolen:

  1. Temporary transportation/ “joyriding”
  2. To strip the car of its valuables
  3. To re-sell the car

Where and when you leave your car is one of the most significant factors that offer opportunity to thieves. Parking your car in the driveway is usually safer than parking your car on streets, but this also depends to some extent on the length of the driveway, visibility, and other factors that affect natural surveillance. The safest place to park your vehicle is in the garage. Suburban areas are usually overall seen as safe areas, residents can easily become unconcerned about their vehicle’s safety. Residents of suburban areas may tend to leave their car doors unlocked or leave their keys inside their cars. Unsecured cars, cars with valuables left in them, poor house and street lighting, vegetation, and other factors that provide concealment for thieves are a commonplace. Often times outside lighting is inadequate. With bad lighting and tall shrubbery on the property it gives thieves good hiding places and good cover. A thief will have a field day in a neighborhood filled with poor lighting and unlocked cars.

Car thefts in suburban residential areas usually occur at night because that is when most cars are present and there is very little lighting at night. In residential areas that contain multi-family apartment complexes, parking lots can be vulnerable to theft during the day because it provides anonymity to the offender due to the amount of people using the parking lot.

Frequently car thefts occur in clusters. Numerous burglaries may be reported during the early morning hours when thieves have already passed through a neighborhood looking for valuables to steal. In general, two kinds of properties are stolen, personal belongings and car components. Personal items can include but are not limited to loose change, laptops, wallets, music places, purses, etc. Personal components kept I the passenger compartment accounted for 35% of stolen items. Stereo components made up 27% of stolen items.

Below are some simple tips to prevent falling victim to vehicle theft:

  1. Always lock your doors and roll up your windows- Thieves often look for unlocked cars, as well as open sheds and garages. While this is a very simple tip, up o a quarter of vehicle thefts are from unlocked cars. Whether you’re running into the store for a soda or going shopping at the mall for a couple hours, you should always make sure your car is locked and your windows are closed
  2. Don’t leave your valuables. Take your valuables with you when you leave your car.  Make sure you take your phone, wallet, purse, etc. with you. In today’s day in age, change has been something taken out of cars more often than you would think. Don’t leave anything that may look appealing or worth a lot of money to a thief. Stow away anything that may be of value.
  3. Hide your valuables. Stash and hide any valuables before you park. Put any shopping bags in your trunk. Sometimes thieves will linger around a parking lot looking for valuables that are being moved out of plain sight. If you have an SUV or wagon that leaves your cargo area on display, consider getting a cover for it.
  4. Turn your car off. All too often we see cars left running in front of local convenience stores such as Wawa or we see our neighbors’ cars running in their driveways. When you leave your car running it shows a thief that it’s open and the keys are in it, making your vehicle an easy target.
  5. Never leave the keys. Make sure you keep your keys with you for the simple fact that they usually have more than just a car key on them. Typically, your keys have your house key’s, work key’s, mailbox key, etc. on them. By leaving your keys in your car, not only does the thief have access to your vehicle but also your home.
  6. Park in secure and visible areas. ALWAYS park I a well-lit area. Parking in a secure area protects your belongings and can also protect you and your family from any dangers that may be lurking.
  7. Car alarms. If you have a car alarm, don’t forget to activate it. If you’re in a parking lot and feel that danger is around press your car alarm button, when the alarm sounds thieves will usually flee.
  8. Get a vehicle locator. For stolen vehicles consider having a vehicle locator/tracker installed.
  9. Report ANY suspicious activity. If you see something suspicious, report it. It is better to be safe than sorry.
  10. Add home security cameras. Consider getting surveillance cameras installed at your home. This can capture any car thefts or burglaries and give authorities a better idea of who they are looking for.

What else can you do to make sure your vehicle is safe and secure?

Installing a security system with line crossing detection is a great option to ensure your vehicle and your homes safety. With security cameras placed outside of your home you will be able to see what happening around your home and be able to keep an eye on your vehicle, even when you aren’t home. Never miss a beat on what’s happening at your home with having line intrusion alerts sent right to your phone.

What is line crossing detection?

Line crossing detection is a function of your NVR, DVR, or IP camera. It instantly detects any motion in a certain set area. This area is personally set by you for your alert needs. It will send immediate alerts right to your smart device directly from your camera. For example, if you want to know when someone enters your driveway you would go into the software of your NVR, DVR, or IP camera and star setting specific areas by drawing lines across the driveway. These lines are no visible to the human eye as they are only virtual lines set by you. These lines will activate the area you have created therefore if this area becomes breached, you will get an alert sent to you either through the app, or to your email, whichever you choose. You can set line crossing detection to work on schedules, certain hours during the day, certain days or the week, or if you’re on vacation and want to be alerted if someone enters your “set” area. There are also sensitivity settings that you can adjust to fit your needs. For example, if you don’t want to be notified if a cat or other small animal enters your set area you would adjust the scale to measure larger objects.

Having home security cameras installed on the outside of your home is often the number one deterrent for stopping a thief. A home that is well lit and has home security camera signs will usually be passed by because a thief will not want to step foot onto your property or touch your vehicle knowing they will be caught on camera. With the advances in today’s security cameras, often the local authorities can identify or get a good look at those committing these crimes. Today’s security cameras can send you an alert right to your phone and notify you when someone is on your property when they aren’t supposed to be just by having line crossing detection set up around your home.

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.

vacation

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.

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.

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!

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.

HD VS Megapixel

HD vs. Megapixel

HD(High Definition) is a type of megapixel camera. All HD cameras are megapixel but not all megapixel cameras are HD.

While standard definition cameras (e.g., analog cameras and 4CIF IP cameras) have no more than 400,000 pixels, all megapixel cameras (including HD) have 1,000,000 or more pixels.

The key features of HD for video surveillance are:
• Maximum HD resolution is 2.1MP
• HD video format is 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080
• HD aspect ratio is 16:9 (compared to 5:4 or 4:3 in other surveillance cameras)
• HD frame rate is 30/25
• HDTV has quality compliance standards
• Supports true 1080P video resolution (uncompressed)
• Ability to leverage current coaxial infrastructure and place HD cameras onto them without changing the
wiring
• Fewer cameras to cover an area since the HD picture is 3 times larger than an analog camera
• Full live HD recording and viewing
• Can be viewed remotely via smartphone or computer
• Customizable video quality

Our opinion and recommendations at Central Jersey Security Cameras is;
We don’t recommend analog cameras at all since the price of HD cameras has come down so much, analog is older technology.

In most settings the HD cameras will do a great job with an outstanding picture.

IP cameras are used more in commercial or larger settings or for those who have a taste for the best of the best, sometimes it is not necessary though.

On a scale of 1 to 10 “with analog being at 1″, we put HD cameras at an 8 and IP cameras at a 10.

Not all HD / IP cameras are the same. This depends solely on the manufacturer, we are proud to sell exclusively Hikvision equipment who is the largest manufacturer in the world of CCTV equipment.

We feel the quality is unmatched for the price.
