DOES YOUR SCHOOL SECURITY GET A PASSING GRADE?!

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. With the recent events in this country this past month, you need to ask the question, “how can we keep our children safe?”. With three school shootings taking place in one week; Texas, New Orleans and Kentucky; it marks the 11th school shooting of 2018 and we’re only one month into the new year, what can we do to make our school’s safer?

It’s scary to think of all the safety 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, along with an intercom system. With the buzz in system in place, a person at the door can state why they are there and show their ID before the doors are even opened. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras, we sell cutting edge access control systems such as CDVI Atrium as one of our top selling products. Access control is a way of limiting access to a system or to physical or virtual resources. In computing, access control is a process by which users are granted access and certain privileges to systems, resources, or information.

In access control systems, users must present credentials before they can be granted access. In physical systems, these credentials may come in many forms, but credentials that can’t be transferred provide the most security. For example, a key card may act as an access control and grant the bearer access to a classified area. Because this credential can be transferred or even stolen, it is not a secure way of handling access control.

A more secure method for access control involves two-factor authentication. The person who desires access must show credentials and a second factor to corroborate identity. The second factor could be an access code, a pin or even a biometric 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 biometric 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, “building lockdown” feature. For example, this would allow a school to press either a fixed or mobile button to instantaneously lock down the entire school by locking every single-entry door in the building. This feature would allow a school to fortify the building so no unauthorized persons would be able to enter.

Cameras should be placed at each exterior entrance of the school as well, so the front desk can see who is moving around the outside of the school at all times. Next would be proper placement of cameras inside the school. Each hallway and stairwell needs to be protected. Cameras installed inside the schools keep 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.

Here are all the school shootings so far in 2018:
• January 3: A 31-year-old man shot and killed himself in the parking lot of his former elementary school in Michigan.
• January 4: Shots were fired at New Start High School outside Seattle. No one was hit or hurt.
• January 5: A bullet from a pellet gun shattered the window of a Forest City, Iowa, school bus full of students while in transit. No one was injured.
• January 9: A 14-year-old male student killed himself in the bathroom of an elementary school in Arizona.
• January 10: A bullet hit a building at California State University, San Bernardino. No one was injured.
• January 10: A student at Grayson College in Texas accidentally fired a bullet during a gun training session with an instructor. No one was hurt.
• January 15: Police in Marshall, Texas, responded to reports of gunfire just after midnight on the Wiley College campus. A stray bullet entered one of the dormitories, but no one was hit.
• January 20: A Winston-Salem State University football player was shot and killed during an event at Wake Forest University.
• January 22: A 16-year-old shot and injured a female student several times at Italy High School in Texas.
• January 22: Someone in a pickup truck fired at a group of students gathered in front of Net Charter School in New Orleans. One boy was injured.
• January 23: A 15-year-old student at a high school in Kentucky shot and killed two students and injured 17 others.
There was also a student shot outside a Jersey City school at dismissal. A Lincoln High School student was shot near an elementary school at dismissal time. The 10th grade student was shot just one block away from where the student attends high school. Both schools were placed on lock down following the shooting.

School shootings have become all too familiar in the wake of massacres at Virginia Tech in 2007 and Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 that sparked outrage but little policy change. U.S. schools have already faced 11 shooting incidents this year. Within one week’s time, these unfortunate events have taken place in Texas, Kentucky & New Orleans. A student bringing a gun onto school property and firing at peers or teachers seems to occur most often, though that’s not always what happens. Two of the shootings this month were later identified as suicides. And in one instance, a 32-year-old man shot at a school bus with a pellet gun.

Gunfire ringing out in American schools used to be rare, and shocking. Now it seems to happen all the time. On January 22nd, a school cafeteria outside Dallas and a charter school parking lot in New Orleans. And before that, a school bus in Iowa, a college campus in Southern California, a high school in Seattle. The scene in Benton, Kentucky, on January 23rd was the worst so far in 2018. Two 15-year-old students were killed, and 18 more people were injured. But it was one of at least 11 shootings on school property recorded since January 1st, and roughly the 50th of the academic year. Our nation’s schools should be some of the safest spaces in our communities.

Most of the incidents were suicides and resulted in no injuries, but they highlight communities’ growing concerns about guns and school safety. At this point last year, there had been five school shootings nationwide. Twenty-four shootings — nearly one in six — occurred after a confrontation or verbal argument intensified, because of the presence of a gun rather than in spite of it. Every town said it’s also fairly common for a school shooting to result from a confrontation or verbal argument that escalates. Regardless of the individuals involved in a shooting, or the circumstances that gave rise to it, gunfire in schools and at colleges and universities undermines the sense of security that all students should have in their learning environments. By tracking this data, every town hopes to begin a reasoned discussion about effective means to promote school safety. Of shootings perpetrated by minors at primary and secondary schools and for which the source of the firearm was known, more than half of the kids obtained the gun at home, likely because an adult did not store it locked and unloaded.

Experts have also begun to document the effects that fatal school shootings have on students. “These incidents can affect students’ decision about whether to stay at their school, affect their cognitive skills, and influence their behavior at school,” according to a 2015 study titled “The Effect of High School Shootings on Schools and Student Performance”. Authors Louis-Philippe Beland and Dongwoo Kim found that enrollment in ninth grade drops following a deadly shooting, as do standardized test scores in math and English for up to three years after a shooting.

A quarter of U.S. parents said they fear for their children’s safety while they are at school, according to an August 2017 Gallup survey. Parents’ concern about children’s safety reached a high after the 1999 Columbine shooting and has spiked sporadically in the wake of other major school shootings.

Here are some words spoken by the parents of the children stuck inside the school during these incidents:
“I still want him to come because he’s learning so much here. This is a great school, he’s improved so much here.”

Another parent said she hopes to see some changes to ensure nothing like this will ever happen again.
“We don’t need this happening when they’re in school, when they’re trying to learn,”

“But it’s a scary thing to have happen at your child’s school, you drop your child off at school and you don’t except this kind of thing to happen, you expect them to be safe at school.”
“I’m just aggravated that you can’t even go to work or school without something like this happening,”

The only thing your child should have to worry about is their grades and who their date to the dance is going to be… they should not have to worry about their safety! They should be able to walk around school knowing they are safe. Your child should not have the fear of looking over their shoulder as they walk from class to class. They should be able to traipse right down that hallway to the girl they have been anxiously and eagerly awaiting asking to the next school dance. Let’s make schools safer!

SHOOTINGS ARE NOT THE ONLY SAFETY ISSUES IN SCHOOLS:
A STABBING

A stabbing also occurred within the first month of the new year. The incident on Thursday, January 18th, occurred in a classroom at New Rochelle High School around 8:50 a.m., when a 15-year-old boy asked to use the bathroom, stabbed a 16-year-old boy twice in the torso on his way toward the door, then ran out of the school. It is unclear what the victim was stabbed with because no weapon was recovered at the scene.

The victim told police that he is not sure why he was stabbed by the suspect, whose name has not been released and who has a violent past. Police said they know the suspect from an assault in May 2016, when he stabbed another student in the chest during a fight outside Isaac E. Young Middle School. The suspect had a lengthy history of behavioral issues even before the 2016 stabbing. Police have not found any connection between the stabbing and an assault that took place a day earlier, when the stabbing suspect was attacked by a group of teenagers in Gemelli Pizzeria on North Avenue. The stabbing suspect was uncooperative after he was attacked in the pizzeria on Wednesday afternoon, and no one has been arrested in that incident, which he said involved bottles and chairs being thrown.

A FIRE
Two students have been charged with setting fire to the boys’ bathroom at Veteran’s Memorial Intermediate School in Vineland earlier this month, police said. A small fire in the boys’ bathroom activated the sprinkler system, which then resulted in flooded conditions on the school’s ground floor. The two 14-year-olds face a charge of arson in the January 2nd fire that forced students and staff to be evacuated sending the student body out into frigid conditions, when an alarm sounded. No injuries were reported, and the damage was minimal and confined to the bathroom, police said. Students returned to the school soon after the fire, police said.

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. With the recent events in this country this past month, this is how we can keep our children safe. We’re only one month into the new year, and there has been so much tragedy. Being halfway through the academic year, 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 to 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+. One of the parents of a student in the New Orleans incident said she hopes to see some changes to ensure nothing like this will ever happen again. Start with getting the security your school needs.

How Secure is the ATM you use?

dcx_doc6ygg3b8kpug317l7eqj
Thieves have found yet another way to victimize people and steal their savings directly from the bank’s ATM machines. This directly affects the account holder since all money being withdrawn is right from an unsuspecting individual’s account. This is called “jackpotting” and while we associate this term mostly with a positive outcome, this is certainly the opposite. Basically, what happens is someone on the back end at a remote location is hacking the banks secure servers and accessing the ATM’s functions allowing them to access your account and programming the ATM to spit out your savings directly from the machine while an accomplice waits in front of the ATM for your savings to wind up in their hands.

Obviously, the best way to combat this is to build an “unhackable” network… until that time what can the banks do other than addressing the network’s vulnerability? Well, placing up to date security cameras at all ATM machines with the highest quality image with interactive facial recognition, self reporting real time security cameras with system integration. Explained in a simpler form, cameras that have the highest possible resolution such as I.P. cameras equipped with a feature that can store a person’s face that can be labeled as a suspicious person and when that person appears in front of the camera again it will send a real time notification that can effectively trigger alarms and alert either the authorities or directly to the institution for information gathering.

Believe it or not there are still a lot of banks with very low-resolution cameras or even non-functioning cameras at their ATM machines. Security cameras won’t solve every problem, but are a very effective resource as a preventative or post measure to deter thieves or gather footage. The time has come to arm yourself with high quality security cameras for your home and business. There has never been a better time between the quality and pricing of the cameras.

Keep in mind its just as important to choose the right security company as it is to choose the right cameras. Placing up to date security cameras at all ATM machines with the highest quality image with interactive facial recognition, self reporting real time security cameras with system integration. Cameras that have the highest possible resolution such as I.P. cameras equipped with a feature that can store a person’s face that can be labeled as a suspicious person and when that person appears in front of the camera again it will send a real time notification that can effectively trigger alarms and alert either the authorities or directly to the institution for information gathering.

Another tool your commercial business 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. Keep in mind too, when choosing the company or any company that may work in your business, be sure that the staff is all background checked. 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+.

I was looking to have security cameras installed and based on favorable reviews from the internet, I called Central Jersey Security Cameras. Soon after, I received a call back from the owner, Bob, who explained some options, answered all of my questions and even provided a rough estimate for what I wanted.
I then called back the next day with additional questions, which he patiently answered. Several days later, he came out to my house to work out the details on placement of the cameras. He also brought samples of the cameras so I could see what I was getting. He did not try to oversell me. In fact, he suggested some ways that I could save money. Overall, his pricing was better that any other estimate that I had obtained in the past.
A couple of weeks later, the installers came out and spent the whole day working. One of the workers was Justin and I believe the other two were Mike and Dave. They were all very polite, professional, neat, and and very helpful. They thoroughly explained how the system worked. I was very satisfied with the installation.
I did later notice that one of the cameras did not seem to work properly after dark and I called back and spoke with Bob. He sent out a new camera and that resolved the problem. One of the technicians who came out, Pat, was wonderful. I am not overly savvy with computers and he very patiently reviewed the camera operations and he also installed them on my computer and iPad even though he was only there to replace a camera.
Last but not least, the office staff of Heather and Tracey are always so friendly and helpful. It is such a pleasure to deal with a company that walks the walk.
If you’re looking for security cameras, I heartily recommend that you consider Central Jersey Security Cameras.

Called Central Jersey security cameras on a Tuesday, had a salesman At my house Wednesday afternoon and a proposal the same night, the work was done five days later, they sent a crew of four technicians and installed nine cameras and an alarm system in my home within seven hours, crew was courteous and friendly. Equipment is definitely what we expected, even a little more. After dealing with some sub par companies, kind of feel compelled to let everyone know that this is a real deal company and they deliver on what they say, highly recommended

Central Jersey Security cameras recently installed cameras and a alarm system in our home. I m extremely impressed with how knowable the Owner bob is and his crew that came to our home. Not being tech savvy I was worried I would not able to follow along with the equipment we were getting installed, my mind was put at ease after the lead tech Pat was very patient and went over everything for my camera system and alarm system until I knew exactly what I was doing. If you are thinking of getting home security cameras or an alarm system this is the place to call our family is very Happy.

Well folks, here’s the “4-1-1″ on this company; if you are thinking “I need security for my home or business” – end your thinking and CALL this company! Why? Simple, they do an honest day’s work, are genuinely concerned about your needs (and satisfaction) and WILL NOT leave your premise until everything is CORRECT and you understand the basics about how your new system works. Included with the installation are links to various video tutorials and the availability via telephone of service personnel, etc. should you need to review your installation, have questions, etc. If there are issues, they can always re-visit your location if not resolvable over the phone. As you may well know, TODAY, people are more interested in ripping you off, than doing an honest day’s work, for an honest day’s pay. This company (spear-headed by owner Bob Murphy) doesn’t play that game; you get what you need (professional equipment [no Bestbuy or Costco do-it-yourself junk] & professional installation) by a knowledgeable and concerned staff. Period! I’ve got seven (7) cameras and a wireless alarm system (all installed in one afternoon) and it’s looking mighty fine! Call ‘em and get er done; thank me whenever!

GOODBYE 2017, HELLO 2018!

2017 was a busy and exciting year for Central Jersey Security Cameras! We were ranked #36 in the fastest growing security companies by Security Dealer and Integrator magazine which is a national magazine! We have grown so much that we have moved into a much larger building in July located at 620 Rt. 9 South, Freehold, New Jersey. Our staff has continued to grow right alongside the growth of the company. This summer, we even hired our first summer intern. With our continued growth, we also continue with all the training for our technicians to be knowledgable in the latest and up to date technology to best serve our valued customers. Owner Bob Murphy received an award earlier this year from LTSecurity for being the largest buyer in the U.S. LTSecurity is one of the leading distributors of surveillance technology. LTSecurity has 13 branches located throughout the U.S. Central Jersey Security Cameras also took part in various charity events such as the Trunk or Treat hosted by PAL as well as donate to the SPCA in February as well as during the hurricane relief just to name a few. As this year comes to a close, Central Jersey Security Cameras owner Robert Murphy would like to thank everyone that has made 2017 such a successful year.

With this year coming to an end and the new year among us, how many of you are going out with your friends and family to ring in the new year? Are you worried about leaving your home for the night? Don’t be! Have security cameras and an alarm installed in and around your home and always be aware of what is going on in and around your home, even when you are not. Are you getting in that last minute shopping preparing for the new year? Whether it be that you’re hitting the grocery store to get those hors d’oeuvres and finger food snacks, or the liquor store for that bottle of champagne, or even the party store for those finishing touches on your decorations and party favors, know that your home is safe and secure! Listed below are some tips to follow this New Years Eve.

TOP 5 TIPS to keep your home safe this New Years Eve while you are out watching the ball drop and ringing in the new year!
1. Lock your doors and windows before you go.
2. Make sure your home is well lit when it gets dark out.
3. Don’t post on social media that you are not home (it’s an invitation to burglars to come on in!)
4. Check your security cameras to make sure they are on.
5. Don’t forget to turn on your alarm.

With today’s security cameras, you can check on your home at any time 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 that you can be out and away from your home, but still be alerted by your smart phone by setting alerts to notify you when someone steps within a perimeter you set on your property on your cameras.

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. Having your alarm connected with Central Station Monitoring will alert the proper authorities when the alarm is triggered. There’s no such thing as too much security!

With advances in alarms this past year with the launch of the new Ultra-sync 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 smart phone to do much more! Just to name a few key features you can use right from your smart phone:
• You can turn your lights on and off at your home.
• You can lock and unlock your doors.
• You can control your thermostat.

Burglars often look for homes that are easy hits. Most of the items burglars look for, such as jewelry, electronics, gold, silver, and guns are easy to sell at a pawn shop, which makes them more appealing to a burglar. If you do not have your home secure with a home security system, the odds are not in your favor. It is a known national statistic that a home is broken into every 15 seconds!

WALKING INTO YOUR DARK HOME, MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE HOME EVEN WHEN YOU ARE OUT AND ABOUT.
Are you uncomfortable walking into your dark home when you return home from your night out? Adding an Ultra-Sync alarm to your home can now give you control over your lights at home. From the palm of your hand, you can now have complete home automation with the ease of your smart phone. You can turn lights off and on with the tap of your finger. Ultra-Sync can even schedule the lights to turn on at a specific time of day. When you aren’t home, make it look like you are home. You are also able to control your heat while you are away with this alarm system! With all the advances in alarms this past year with the launch of the new Ultra-Sync alarm home automation, you can now not only be alerted when someone is at your home, but you have access to using all these features that make your life more convenient away from home. You can even lock and unlock your doors without digging for those keys in your pocket. Take advantage of the key features our ultra-sync has to offer. To learn more about what the Ultra-Sync can do for your home visit our webpage.

HAVE YOUR HOME PROTECTED WITH SECURITY CAMERAS.
Home security cameras are the number one deterrent from a burglar breaking into your home! Time and time again, we see a criminal look right into 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. Don’t call when it’s too late!

LEAVING THE CHILDREN WITH A BABY SITTER TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR?
Are you leaving your children with a baby sitter while you go out to watch the ball drop and ring in the new year? Your children are precious to you. Know that they are being taken care of and treated the way that you wish. You can do that by having security cameras installed, whether they are installed in plain sight or hidden. Do you miss them while you’re away from home? Take a look at them via your cameras. We have an app where you can see them remotely right on your phone. Are your kids old enough to not need a sitter and are able to stay home alone? Do you want to know if your kids have invited their friends over while you are out for the night? Check in and make sure they’re not having a little party of their own thinking they’re sneaky and you’ll never catch them. Make sure they’re not getting themselves into trouble by having line intrusion alerts sent right to your phone.

WHAT IS 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.

Many families in New Jersey try to keep their loved ones safe in the home with them, but unfortunately you cannot be everywhere all the time. With security cameras placed at your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around the home. Would you like to know every time a door is opened in the home? Would you want to know about every time someone enters or exits the home? Take advantage of the intrusion detection features that all our Central Jersey Security Cameras systems come with. Set up a virtual intrusion area at your front door. 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.

Not only can Central Jersey Security Cameras provide cameras with line crossing detection, we can also put cameras inside the home in areas you may need to watch. With today’s technology, the possibilities are endless.

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

Just like all other seasons, make sure to lock your doors when you leave the home. Check that your cameras and that your alarm is working properly and make sure to leave your home looking occupied if you leave for an extended period of time. With the upcoming holidays you spend away from home with family and friends, know your home is safe. Don’t let the fear of your home’s safety stop you from doing the things you love. Know that you can enjoy that glass of champagne while you’re counting down the new year.. Don’t let a burglar take that peace of mind and holiday joy away from you. The peace of mind while you are away from home, knowing that your home is protected from unwanted guests while you are away, is priceless. Get yourself and your family protected. If you don’t already have a home security camera or alarm system, or if you want to update your current system, give us a call at Central Jersey Security Cameras for a free estimate.

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

Installing security cameras in the homes of your elderly parents and/or grandparents to be able to check in on them is starting to sound like a great idea now, isn’t it?
Not only can these security cameras protect your elderly loved ones from intruders, but they reek the benefits of much more than just that. We all think of security cameras to keep our homes safe from intruders or to watch our children at home with the babysitters/nannies, but have you ever thought of how they protect the elderly as well? By installing cameras in the homes of your elderly parents and/or grandparents, you will be able to check in and SEE them and know what they are actually up to. Do you worry about your elderly loved ones when you are not physically with them? Not only will having security cameras give you that peace of mind knowing what your parents or grandparents are doing, but it can also be lifesaving for the elderly! With security cameras placed in the interior of the home, you can watch mom in the kitchen cooking and keep checking in that she is still safe around the stove. You can check in on the camera located by the steps and be sure dad did not fall as he has become more unstable in his walking.

Have you been thinking of having a home health aide come to the home, but you are unsure of the treatment your loved one will receive from them? We can set up nanny cams in their home, so this way you can be sure your loved ones are being treated the way they should be. Does your elderly loved one already have a home care giver that is supposed to come each day? Would you like to know when they come and go each day? With the line crossing detection, or intrusion detection feature, you can now know exactly each time they come and go, and rest assured your loved one is getting the care they deserve.

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.

Would you like to know every time a door is opened in the home? Many families in New Jersey try to keep their loved ones in the home with them, but unfortunately you cannot be everywhere all the time. With security cameras placed at your elderly loved one’s home or in your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around the home. Would you want to know about every time someone enters or exits the home? Take advantage of the intrusion detection features that all our Central Jersey Security Cameras systems come with.

Not only will security cameras help you keep an eye on the older generation, you may also need to know when the kids get home from school or even 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, 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.

Not only can Central Jersey Security Cameras provide cameras with line detection, we can also put cameras inside the home in areas you may need to watch, such as the kitchen to make sure our loved one is safe when they are cooking or anywhere else you may worry about their safety. With today’s technology, the possibilities are endless.
Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras we offer instructional videos to walk you through the entire process on setting up your security system to send you the alerts when areas are breached, or lines are 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.
To get your elderly loved ones protected with a home security camera system, call us at Central Jersey Security Cameras and we can help you work out a plan that best fits their needs within a budget and without becoming intrusive in their lives. Call us today. 732-333-0227

Know the difference between a Home Invasion, Robbery, Burglary, Larceny, Theft and Extortion

Home Invasion:
In the dictionary home invasion is defined as; In the United States and many other English speaking countries (though not the United Kingdom) home invasion is an illegal and usually forceful entry to an occupied, private dwelling with intent to commit a violent crime against the occupants, such as robbery, assault, rape, murder, or kidnapping.
Burglary vs Robbery are Often the Most Confused Terms:
Robbery and burglary are both crimes that involve theft and it is the circumstances that surround each that defines their differences. When it comes to the legal definition of theft there are actually a number of categories of theft in addition to burglary and robbery. These additional theft crimes include: larceny, theft and extortion.

Robbery
In the dictionary, robbery is defined by the law as taking or trying to take something from someone that has value by utilizing intimidation, force or threat. In order for robbery to take place, a victim must be present at the scene and can occur with a single victim or, in cases like bank hold ups, multiple victims.

Burglary
Burglary is defined by the law as the unlawful entry to a structure to commit theft or a felony. In order for burglary to take place, a victim does not have to be present. When a burglary takes place, the structure being unlawfully entered can be any number of building types including business offices, personal homes and even garden sheds. Burglary is not the term used for crimes committed on cars.

Larceny
In the dictionary, larceny is a term that is similar to burglary. However, it does not involve illegal entry to a structure using attempted forcible, non-forcible or forcible entry methods. The exception to this rule is the case of burglary of a motor vehicle which is referred to as larceny. Under all conditions, whether a vehicle is left with the doors locked and security system on or whether the doors or windows were left open, vehicle “burglary” crimes are referred to as larceny

Theft
In the dictionary, many times the term, theft, is used as a general term by the public to refer to the illegal taking of an item. As it happens, theft is defined specifically depending upon the jurisdiction in which it is being prosecuted, but many times it is a term used as a synonym for larceny.

Extortion
In the dictionary extortion is a specific crime in which an individual forces someone to do something against their will by threatening them with damage to the person’s reputation, financial hardship, violence, property damage or threat of violence. Extortion differs from robbery in that victims who are being extorted willingly hand over the item being extorted in an attempt to avoid the threat being used against them. Depending upon the jurisdiction in which extortion is being prosecuted, it can be considered theft or larceny.

This is also the time of the year many NJ beach town hotel / resort owners in Sea Side Heights, Sea Side park, Belmar, Spring Lake, Wildwood, Wildwood Crest, Ocean City, Cape May, Sea Girt, Avon by the Sea, Bradley Beach all start to gear up for the busy summer season.

The Importance of Having Hotel / Resort Security Cameras: for the Hotel / Resort Owner and Hospitality Staff

Hotels/Resorts are huge places, and have many areas that have potential for a customer to injure themselves due to their own careless mistake. Hotel-goers could even become injured because a staff member neglected to do their job, and didn’t maintain an area. Security surveillance will help prove who or what may be at fault, and help protect your hotel/ resort investment. Below, you will find a few more of the most common reasons why security cameras are needed in hotel/ resorts:

-Slip and Fall Claims-

In a perfect world we would like to believe everyone will tell the truth and not be dishonest however, not everyone will tell the truth, and some will try to take advantage of an opportunity to cash in on money from the hotel or resort. Security Cameras will be the proof the hotel needs to actually see the event that took place at the time of a slip and fall claim. The DVR/NVR’s hard drive can store up to 2 years of footage, making it more accessible to you.

-How does your Staff Work?-

Just like in any place of business owners often want and need to know how productive their staff is. This also protects the staff from unwarranted, untrue claims that someone may make against your business, once again, it’s all now recorded from the security cameras placed in the hotel/resort.

-Assaults-

Let’s face it, this is not something you often think of when you are traveling on your vacation or even on a business trip, unfortunately, this is something that does happen. Often it is high vacation areas that unwanted guests may try to get into, or near hotel guest and look to rob valuables, and may even cause bodily harm. Here is a cause where security cameras help protect the hotel customer as well as the hotel. It helps to have proof of who and how the person gained access to the location.

-Thefts-

While on vacation, someone stealing is one of the last things people often think of, but once again, it is something that takes place. When we are in the vacation mode we often let out guard down a bit, and leave our bags filled with expensive cell phones, I pads, Wallets, etc. on our beach chair, by the pool. A thief looks at this as a way to make an easy score. Hotels and resorts that have security cameras often deter these crimes from even taking place. Here once again this helps the hotel see if something took place or not to its hotel guest.

-Damage to your Hotel Claims-

This is something, unfortunately, all too many NJ shore hotels face each year, with guests over indulging in the NJ bar scene. Especially in Towns such as Sea Side Heights NJ, Belmar NJ, and Wildwood NJ. All too often, hotel guests overdo it and can potentially cause damage to the hotels they are staying in, or become unruly and authorities need to be called. Often to the hotel owner that does not have security surveillance it’s now a case of he said she said, or relying on other guest testimonials of what took place. Hotels that are now equipped with hotel security cameras now have the proof they need for insurance, and for the authorities

Its a good idea when you change your clocks back and your smoke detector batteries to also take a look at your home security

As we all set our clocks back this weekend we are often reminded to change the batteries in our smoke detectors, and get our homes ready for winter months ahead. As you are getting your home ready for winter it’s also time to think is your home security ready for winter too? As the clocks go back each year the criminals come back out.
The crime of robbery is mainly a nighttime crime, increasing after 8:00 PM and subsiding after 3:00 AM in most areas.
