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.

Protect your Elderly Loved Ones – Consider a Security Camera System to Keep Your Family Safe!

elderly couple

Adult communities have a lot of perks ranging from their clubhouses filled with different activities to no longer needing to shovel snow or mow your own lawn. Although this is a great option for the elderly to live, we still need to ensure that their homes are safe and protected. What is stopping someone from breaking into your gated community home?

Typically, adult communities have decorative gates and fencing at the entrances and around the community. Would this really stop a determined burglar from just parking somewhere nearby and walking right in or hopping the fence? The elderly are a target for burglars because they can usually easily overpower them and take their valuables without much of a fight. An elderly man from St. Louis, Missouri is currently recovering from a burglary that happened inside his home on April 19, 2019. The elderly victim was sitting outside on his porch when a masked man approached him and pulled out a gun. The victim was then forced inside his home and struck in the face with the gun. The burglar stole the victims’ cell phone and other belongings before fleeing the scene. This incident was caught on an interior security camera the victim had inside his home. Capturing these unfortunate events on the camera will give the authorities a better picture of those responsible and will show them exactly what took place. Let’s keep our elderly parents safe and secure with the help of Central Jersey Security Cameras.

Keep an eye on those who matter to you

Do your parents or grandparents live in a gated community? Installing security cameras in their homes will be a huge relief knowing that you can check on them if they aren’t answering your phone calls or you haven’t heard from them in a couple of days. Not only will security cameras protect your loved ones by being a deterrent for intruders, but they reek the benefits much more than that. By installing security cameras in their homes, you will be able to actually see what they are up to. Unfortunately, burglars and thieves aren’t the only people that raise concern when thinking about your elderly parents living alone. Have you considered getting a home health aide to go to their home? You need to make sure that whoever you choose to take care of your elderly loved ones are giving them the proper care they need while also treating them with respect and dignity. We can set up nanny cams in their homes so you will be able to actually see what is taking place if a home health aide does go to their home. We all worry about our elderly loved ones when we can’t physically be there with them. Not only will security cameras give you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are okay, but it can also be lifesaving for them. With security cameras placed inside the home, you will be able to see mom cooking in the kitchen while ensuring she’s safe around the stove. With the placement of outdoor cameras, you can check in and see that dad is safe while out in the yard or walking up the front steps. Everyone needs that added home security no matter what age, however with today’s advanced technology there are many benefits to installing security systems for our elderly loved ones.

Be alerted

Wouldn’t it be nice to get an alert sent to your phone when someone walks up to your parent’s house or pulls into their driveway? Well, now you can! With our professionally installed HD security cameras, we have a feature called line intrusion we can set up to your cameras. Line intrusion works by setting your own area in which you would want to be alerted if it became breached. For example, if you want to receive an alert to your phone when someone pulls into your parent’s driveway you would go into the software and draw lines in the front of the driveway. These lines are only set by you, therefore, they aren’t visible to the human eye. There are also sensitivity settings that you have the option to adjust. If you don’t want to be alerted if a rabbit hops into their driveway you would simply adjust the sensitivity setting to measure larger objects. If the set area becomes breached, you will receive an alert right on your smart device. Line intrusion is a free bonus to having your security cameras professionally installed by us.

What do you recommend for my home?

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

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

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

Can the cameras view clearly at night?

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

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

A cameras lux is the level of light to capture a good picture. The lower the cameras lux, the better the camera can see in the dark. For example, a camera with 0.003 lux is better than a camera with 0.2 lux. Infrared cameras are also compared by how far they can see in total darkness. We sell cameras that see in total darkness over 120 feet at night. People use infrared security cameras for businesses that have lights out at night (in case of a break in) or for outside to view at night.

Infrared cameras capture black and white images however some cameras can capture color images during the day when the light is available and will automatically switch to black and white in low lighting. Times are changing and there has been a break through in night vision with the introduction of EXIR or Matrix IR’s. Hikvision pioneered this type of technology and we have noticed a great difference in the quality of the picture at night. These EXIR cameras (a highly-efficient light source and enhanced LED light strength. By employing the most advanced thin-film and light-emitting technology, this series provides up to 30% more illuminate efficiency over traditional LED array technology. Furthermore, the EXIR series even provides a 40% light-extraction rate improvement when compared to traditional models, resulting in a stronger light for long-range visibility usage.

To make the most out of our IR LED light, EXIR HD, and IP cameras, produce LED light in the form of a rectangle. This allows a better fit for a screens normal size (4:3 or 16:9). Additionally, this will improve LED utilization efficiency and reduce light pollution in the surrounding environment. Images are further optimized with EXIR’s luminance uniformity functionality, which eliminates traditional LED lens issues, such as over exposure at the center of images, as well as darker areas at the corners. EXIR HD/IP cameras capture great image detail in poorly lit environments, better providing for solutions at parks, harbors, roads and airports.

Will my cameras notify me of suspicious activity?

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

What if I have questions after the install?

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

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

Why should I have cameras at my business on the shore?

There are many reasons why installing security cameras at your business is beneficial to you and your employees. You will be able to keep an eye on your employees and the people entering your business throughout the day even when you aren’t there. People tend to let loose during the warmer months and spend a lot of their free time at the shore. Our beaches and boardwalks are a huge attraction for people of all ages. Many of our boardwalks here in New Jersey offer arcades, places to eat, boardwalk games, rides, and several bars. Many people spend their weekends at the boardwalks for a good time and to grab a few drinks with friends. Alcohol can alter people’s decision-making skills and can cause people to act in rowdy and irresponsible ways. Make sure your business and the people in it are as safe and secure as possible. Not only are security cameras beneficial during the Summer months, they will give you peace of mind during the Winter as well. Of course, the boardwalks aren’t as busy once the colder months come, but you will be able to make sure your business is safe. You should make sure your business is being watched around the clock all year long. With the installation of security cameras, you will be able to capture if any theft, violence or rowdy behavior is happening in your business, thus allowing you to contact the proper authorities. Let our technicians here at Central Jersey Security Cameras help you in deciding which cameras best suit your business to keep it safe and secure.

Make sure you know who is at or around your place of business before, during, and after hours.

Stores and businesses use a wide variety of cameras to monitor the people entering and exiting their buildings. These cameras are used to reduce theft and to improve the overall safety for everyone in the building. Not only do business owners install security cameras to keep an eye on their merchandise, they also install them to keep an eye on their employees. Unfortunately, not all dangers to your business come from just customers. 64% of all small businesses fall victim to employee theft, and fraud. Many losses that come from employee theft are cash losses, with $20,000 being the average loss.

2Here are a few tips to help reduce risky behavior at your business:

  • Conduct a background check on your employees
  • Install an access control system allowing employees to enter only areas needed for them to do their jobs
  • Place security cameras around areas where money is exchanged or kept
  • Make daily bank deposits to minimize the amount of cash on the premises
  • Close and lock doors to areas where valuable products or supplies are stored. Use fencing and locked gates to protect equipment and supplies kept outdoors

Can the cameras view clearly at night?

An infrared security camera has infrared lighting (light from a different region of the electromagnetic spectrum than we normally use to see) installed around the outside of the lens of the camera. This lighting allows the camera to capture a good image with no light. With a little bit of light (called low light) the infrared camera can capture a picture that looks just like daytime. Keep in mind that even at nighttime there is normally some light from the moon, stars, or street lights which will allow the camera to capture a clear image.

Infrared cameras do not do well in outdoor housings because the infrared light reflects off the glass of the housing. Some people get acceptable results if the camera is flush with the glass. An alternative solution is to use a day/night camera which has an extra sensitive imaging chip that allows it to capture a good picture in low light situations without using infrared lighting. This works well for example if there are street lights outside or an exterior light that can be left on at night. Cameras without infrared light will not capture an image without any light.

The level of light required to capture a good picture is referred to as a camera’s lux, the lower the 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 the lights out at night (in case of break-ins) or for outside night time viewing.

We also offer a variety of alarm systems, some of which are listed below:

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. Back lit buttons allow you to see your keypad when the power is out.

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 business 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 in the building for long. Motion detectors can be turned off when you are on the premises while your windows and doors can remain secured.

Remote Entry Key Fob
Convenient and easy to use remote entry key fobs allow you to arm and disarm your system with a push of a button as far as 500 feet from your business. The key fob also features a panic button which allows you to contact help in case of emergency.

Alarm Sirens
An alarm siren provides peace of mind for you and acts as a deterrent for would-be intruders.

When choosing a security camera company for all your businesses needs you need to make sure you are choosing a company that has training in installs in business and store settings. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras our technicians have gone through extensive training for installing cameras and alarm systems. When installing security cameras, you want to make sure you are choosing a company that will come to each location you have and preform a safety audit to best meet the needs of your facility. A safety audit should be done at least once a year to ensure that your systems are working properly and still meeting all your facility’s needs. The audit of the facility is not just limited to security cameras and alarms but should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another helpful tool when choosing a trusted company that is going to install your security systems is to look them up on the Better Business Bureau. You want to make sure the business you are choosing is BBB accredited so you can view the company’s track record.

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.

How do you secure your Jersey Shore home for the winter and beyond?

How do you secure your Jersey Shore home for the winter and beyond?

Many homeowners in towns such as Toms River, Lavallette, Midway Beach, Berkeley Township, Brick, LBI, and Surf City are sad to say goodbye to “local summer” as there is a bit of coolness in the weather along the Jersey shore. This bit of coolness has many of the Jersey snow birds thinking of their sunny winter in Florida. Before you close up your Jersey shore home and fly off for the winter, you need to think of how secure your home is. Would you like to be able to look in and see exactly what is happening at your shore home from any location in the world that has internet excess?  If you answered yes, then it’s time to think of installing security cameras to your Jersey shore home.

Whether you are going south for the winter or just back to your residential home until next summer, are you leaving your beach home unattended? With fall and winter approaching, we all know it gets darker earlier outside. The darker it is outside, the easier it is for a burglar to go unnoticed. Keep an eye on your home while you are not.

Secure your Jersey Shore home with Security Cameras

Beach towns have less population as the cooler months join us, making it easier for a burglar to go undetected. Do you worry about your shore home when you are not physically there to see what may be happening? Security cameras give you that peace of mind knowing what’s taking place around the home when you are not able to be there. Would you like to know if someone steps on your property that shouldn’t be? Today’s security cameras can send you an alert right to your phone and notify you when someone is somewhere they are not supposed to be just by having the line crossing detection perimeters set up around your home. With the line crossing detection, or intrusion detection feature, you can now know exactly each time someone comes and goes, and rest assured your home is safe and secure. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras/Jersey Shore Security not only do we train you on your system the day of the install we also 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.

Line crossing detection, or intrusion detection, is a function of your DVR, NVR or IP camera. What it does is that it instantly detects any motion in a certain “set”, which is a set area that is personally set by you for your alert needs. It will send immediate alerts to your smart device directly from the DVR, NVR  or IP camera. For example, you want to know when someone or something enters your driveway? So, you go into the software of your DVR, NVR or IP camera and start setting up specific areas by drawing lines across the driveway. Of course, these are not visible lines to the human eye since it is only a virtual line or perimeter you have created, but it acts just as good as a virtual tripwire. In essence, what it will do is activate the area when the area or line is breached and send you a notification either directly through the app or to your email, whichever option you choose. You can even have audible alerts right on site through an external siren or right from the DVR or NVR.
You can set this to work on schedules, certain hours during the day, certain days during the week or if you are on vacation and will be away from your home or business and you want to be alerted when someone or something breaches your “set” area or areas. While both High Definition and IP cameras or the use of an NVR in conjunction with IP cameras will both do the job, there is more flexibility with the NVR and IP cameras in terms of having multiple cameras set up for line crossing/intrusion detection. There are also sensitivity settings that do adjust to meet your needs. For example, you may not want to know when a cat or small animal crosses the line, so you would adjust the scale to measure for larger objects.

Added Benefits of a home security camera system for landlords

We all think of security cameras to keep our homes safe from intruders, but are you thinking of renting out your shore home?

Back to School Safety Preparation 2018!

B2S18

Back to school time here in Central, South, and North New Jersey. With your children returning to the classroom this fall, after the previous year the United States saw in school shootings and lock downs, it’s time to think school security now more than ever. Many NJ schools have tightened security by not allowing anyone to just walk though the doors. You now have to show your ID as a parent during school hours.

It’s scary to think of all the safely measures that need to go into place today in our schools. The first lines of defense that all schools need to have today are locked doors with a buzz in system. These doors should have a camera pointing at the person at the door with an intercom system. With the buzz in system in place, a person at the door can state why they are there and actually show their ID before the doors are opened.

Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras, we sell cutting edge access control systems such as CDVI Atrium as one of our top selling products. Access control is a way of limiting access to a system or to physical or virtual resources. In computing, access control is a process by which users are granted access and certain privileges to systems, resources, or information.

aaron-burden-60068-unsplash

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

A more secure method for access control involves two-factor authentication. The person who desires access must show credentials and a second factor to corroborate identity. The second factor could be an access code, a pin or even a bio-metric reading.

There are three factors that can be used for authentication:

  • Something only known to the user, such as a password or pin.
  • Something that is part of the user, such as a fingerprint, retina scan or another bio-metric measurement.
  • Something that belongs to the user, such as a card or a key.

For computer security, access control includes the authorization, authentication and audit of the entity trying to gain access. Access control models have a subject and an object. The subject, the human user, is the one trying to gain access to the object – usually the software. In computer systems, an access control list contains a list of permissions and the users to whom these permissions apply. Such data can be viewed by certain people and not by other people and is controlled by access control. This allows an administrator to secure information and set privileges as to what information can be accessed, who can access it and at what time it can be accessed.

One of the latest and greatest features we have to offer is a feature that unfortunately today is becoming more necessary in our everyday lives which is the “building lockdown” feature. For example, this would allow a school to press either a fixed or mobile button to instantaneously lock down the entire school by locking every single-entry door in the building. This feature would allow a school to fortify the building so no unauthorized persons would be able to enter.

back-bus-education-159658

Cameras should be placed at each exterior entrance of the school as well, so the front desk can see who is moving around the outside of the school at all times. Next, would be proper placement of cameras inside the school. Each hallway and stairwell needs to be protected. Cameras inside the schools keeps your children protected on so many levels. They will protect your children from bullies, protect teachers from falsely being accused of something and can protect your child from a teacher that may not be treating your child right. Many schools are now even adding cameras to the actual classrooms. This is often the proof to show parents how their child is behaving in the classroom, or proof of how a teacher may interact with your child. Cameras in the classroom often serve as not just protection for the child and the teacher, but to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future.

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. With the events that have taken place in this country throughout the last academic school year, this is how we can keep our children safe. It’s time to start planning to get the security your school needs.

Keep in mind, no two schools are the same when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms at your schools. A company that offers a package is not really your best bet. You want to go with a company that will come to each school and does a safety audit to best meet the needs of each school. A school safety audit is something that should be done at least once a year to ensure all the systems are working properly and are still meeting your school’s needs. This audit of the school should not just be limited to security cameras and alarms in the school, it should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another tool your school board can use when looking for the company that is going to install your security system is to look them up in the Better Business Bureau. You want to use a company that is BBB accredited so you can look back on the company’s track record. Keep in mind too, when choosing the company or any company that may work in your schools, be sure that the staff is all background checked. Central Jersey Security Cameras will come work with your school district and school budget to best protect your most valuable assets, your children! Our staff is background checked and highly trained in installation of all aspects of security systems. Central Jersey Security Cameras is Better Business Bureau Accredited A+. Start with getting the security your school needs. Call Central Jersey Security Cameras today and let’s start making the plans to have your school as safe as it can be for this upcoming school year. 732-333-0227

How safe is your car? Protect your vehicles with a home security system!

Over the past few years car burglaries have decreased, but we have seen a fair amount of them in 2018. Theft from parked cars is one of the most common complaints received by police in residential neighborhoods. According to the U.S. Department of Justice statistics, these types of crimes make up 36 percent of all larcenies reported to the police. Thefts from vehicles usually involve small dollar values in terms of the property that is stolen, but they also take up considerable police resources and increase residents’ fear of crime. Having security cameras on your home is often the number one deterrent in stopping a burglar. If you want to find out how secure your home is, give Central Jersey Security Cameras a call. We can help you to decide what security system is best to fit your security needs or we can fill you in on how to improve your existing security.

Stolen cars create an inconvenience, generate higher insurance costs, and financial losses for car owners as well as the risks to the safety of police officers and other motorists from stolen vehicle pursuits.

Cars are generally stolen for one of three purposes:

  1. For temporary transportation, such as use in another crime or for “joyriding”
  2. To strip the car of its valuable parts for resale
  3. To re-sell it, often disguised as a legitimate car

Where and when cars are parked are probably the most significant factors that offer opportunity to thieves. Cars are typically safer in driveways rather than parked on streets, but this will depend to some extent on the length of the driveway, shrubbery, lighting, and other factors that affect natural surveillance. Most car thefts occur on the street outside the victim’s home. A car parked on the street is much more likely to be targeted by criminals than a car parked in a driveway. Vehicles are safer in a garage, more at risk in a driveway, and much more at risk on the street.

Because suburban residential areas are relatively quiet and safe, residents can become unconcerned about car security. They may leave their car doors unlocked or leave their keys in the ignition. Unsecured cars, cars with valuables left in plain view, poor house and street lighting and vegetation or other features that provide concealment for thieves are commonplace. Oftentimes, their homes’ exterior lighting is wholly inadequate. Tall shrubbery and other brush on the premises can provide thieves with cover. An entire neighborhood filled with unlocked cars and poorly lit homes, with plenty of places to hide, is an inviting scene for a thief. Residential subdivisions surrounded by rural lands and that are not served by public transportation are less likely to suffer from car crime. Thieves would have to travel to the location, and then walk around in an unfamiliar neighborhood where they are more likely to appear out of place and attract suspicion. These areas often have no sidewalks, so pedestrian traffic in general draws attention. Probably the most effective response for car owners is not to park their cars in the open streets or driveways. Of course, many car owners, especially in more densely populated residential areas, are forced to park on the streets because they do not have garages or driveways. The capacity to prevent theft of cars and their components is limited, especially when cars are parked on the street where they are easily accessible at any time of the day.

Thefts of and from cars in suburban residential areas generally occur at night. This is because it is the time most cars are present, as well as the fact that the darkness provides cover for the thieves. In residential areas that contain multi-family apartment complexes, parking lots can be vulnerable to thefts during the day because there are so many people using the lots, thus providing anonymity to the offender. Some special events that draw large numbers of vehicles to an area also generate high volumes of thefts from cars.

Frequently, thefts from cars occur in clusters. Numerous burglaries may be reported during the early morning hours when thieves have already passed through a neighborhood looking for property to steal. In general, two kinds of property are stolen: personal items and car components. Personal items that owners may leave in their cars include loose change, laptop computers, portable music players, and wallets or pocket books. Personal valuables inside the passenger compartment accounted for 35 percent of items stolen, while stereo components made up 27 percent of the stolen items. Compact discs as well as car stereo parts and accessories can easily be traded for cash at second hand music stores or pawnshops. These items can also be difficult to trace. Few owners take the time to record the serial numbers of after-market stereo components.

In general, older model cars are more often stolen than more recent models because fewer of them contain built-in anti-theft devices. However, newer models may be targeted for theft if they contain expensive components that are in great demand. Each year, $1.255 billion in personal items and accessories are stolen from vehicles in about 1.85 million thefts; and for every theft, experts estimate, there are several break-ins and attempted break-ins. With these tips and preventative measures, you can greatly reduce the chances your vehicle will become a target.

10 tips to help protect your vehicles from burglary:

  1. Lock your doors, roll up your windows. Thieves often look for unlocked cars, as well as sheds and garage doors that are left open. While this piece of advice should be a no-brainer, up to a quarter of vehicle thefts are from unlocked cars. Even if you’re running into the store for a Coke, that’s too long to leave your vehicle’s contents open for the taking. Simply locking the doors will deter those who might just be waiting around for an easy target. Close your windows and sunroofs.
  2. Take your valuables. Don’t leave your valuables in the vehicle, or in plain sight. Make sure you take out your phones, pocketbooks, purses, and even your change. In today’s day and age, change has been something taken out of cars more often than you would think. Don’t leave any bait out for thieves; stow your electronics and accessories well out of sight, or better yet, bring it with you. The evidence alone might be enough to pique the interest of theieves, so hide that too, including power plugs, telltale iPod adapters, or nav-system windshield suction cup mounts, and even put the cigarette lighter back in place.
  3. Hide your things. Stash before, not after you park. Get in the habit of putting shopping bags in the trunk right when you return to the vehicle, rather than after you park at the next place. Thieves sometimes linger in busy parking lots looking for valuables being moved out of sight. Don’t display to them what you have. Almost any worthless personal item that’s visible from the outside – even an empty shopping bag – could be seen as a valuable or a carrier of valuables. If you have a wagon or SUV that leaves your cargo area on display, consider getting a cover. Most of these vehicles can be fitted with inexpensive retractable covers to help keep shopping bags or belongings out of sight.
  4. Turn off your car. Yes, this seems like a no brainer, but all too often we see cars left running in front of our local convenience stores, such as wawa or even in our neighbor’s driveway. It is almost like your car is there saying “take me, I’m already running and the keys are in here”.
  5. Never leave the keys. Years ago, a close family friend made a joke about when you are out, you never leave the person that has the keys so you always know you have a ride home. This is true in so many ways. Make sure you keep your keys with you for the simple fact that they often have more then just your car keys on there. They often have your house key on them as well. So, by leaving your keys behind, not only are your saying “hey, take my car” but now you are also saying, “hey, why not stop by my home and help yourself there too”.
  6. Park in secure and visible areas. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS, park your car in a well lit area! Parking in a secure area does not only protect your belongings, but can also protect you and your family from the dangers that may be lurking. Avoid concealment from larger vehicles, fences, or foliage. Except for the most brazen thieves, the greater that chances are that someone might see a crime in progress, the lower the chances are that potential thief will attempt it.
  7. Car alarms. If you have a car alarm, don’t forget to activate it. It’s as simple as that. And don’t forget if you are in the parking lot and feel you can be in danger, hit that car alarm button. Often the alarm will scare away the would be attackers.
  8. Get a vehicle locator. For stolen vehicles, consider having some type of vehicle locator installed.
  9. Report anything suspicious. Better safe then sorry! If you see something suspicious, REPORT IT!
  10. Add home security cameras. For your home, consider adding surveillance cameras that can capture any car thefts or burglaries on film and help find the thieves and get them off our streets.

 

Unfortunately, in many densely populated areas, thefts from cars go uninvestigated if there is no information from the victim as to the identity of the perpetrator. The fact that streets and the driveways attached to them are accessible to everyone makes cars very vulnerable. This is when having a surveillance camera system can benefit you. Not only are security cameras a deterrent to burglars, but they can also help you to identify the perpetrator. Central Jersey Security Cameras motto is “get them before they get you”. Do just that by having a surveillance camera system installed on your home.

Many of our New Jersey business and home owners are installing surveillance systems with line crossing detection. With security cameras placed at your home, you can see everything that’s going on in and around your home right in the palm of your hand. Never miss a beat, you can have the 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.
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.

Having security cameras installed on your home is often the number one deterrent in stopping a burglar.  A home that is well lit with home security camera signs prominently posted will often be passed by because no burglar wants to be caught on security surveillance. With the advances in today’s home security cameras, often the local authorities can identify or get a good look at who is committing crimes in an area by going to the home owners and retrieving the footage from their home security cameras. Today’s security cameras can send you an alert right to your phone and notify you when someone is somewhere they are not supposed to be just by having the line crossing detection perimeters set up around your home.

School may be out for the summer, but it’s never too early to start making the plans to have your school as safe as it can be for the upcoming school year!

Most New Jersey towns are ending their 2017-2018 school year within the next few days. The teachers, administers and parents are all thinking of summer fun, but it’s also the best time to plan for the 2018-2019 school year safety plans and school security. This school year has seen an unfortunate amount of school shootings and crimes throughout the country. This is now the time to ask, “How safe is your school?” School lock downs known as “shelter in place“ is now sadly a way of life for our children. There have been at least 46 incidents of gunfire on school grounds in 2018. A total of 65 shootings were reported on school campuses in 2017.

schools-out-1

Just this past May, Freehold Township schools, Monroe Township schools and Union City schools, all-in New Jersey, were all locked down to “shelter in place” different days. In Bethlehem, PA schools were locked down when a threat was written on a wall in the school this past month as well.

So the question to ask here is, “how can we keep our children safe?” It’s scary to think of all the safely measures that need to go into place today in our schools. The first lines of defense that all schools need to have today are locked doors with a buzz in system. These doors should have a camera pointing at the person at the door with an intercom system. With the buzz in system in place, a person at the door can state why they are there and actually show their ID before the doors are opened. Here at Central Jersey Security Cameras, we sell cutting edge access control systems such as CDVI Atrium as one of our top selling products. Access control is a way of limiting access to a system or to physical or virtual resources. In computing, access control is a process by which users are granted access and certain privileges to systems, resources, or information.

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

A more secure method for access control involves two-factor authentication. The person who desires access must show credentials and a second factor to corroborate identity. The second factor could be an access code, a pin or even a bio-metric reading.

There are three factors that can be used for authentication:

  • Something only known to the user, such as a password or pin.
  • Something that is part of the user, such as a fingerprint, retina scan or another bio-metric measurement.
  • Something that belongs to the user, such as a card or a key.

For computer security, access control includes the authorization, authentication and audit of the entity trying to gain access. Access control models have a subject and an object. The subject, the human user, is the one trying to gain access to the object – usually the software. In computer systems, an access control list contains a list of permissions and the users to whom these permissions apply. Such data can be viewed by certain people and not by other people and is controlled by access control. This allows an administrator to secure information and set privileges as to what information can be accessed, who can access it and at what time it can be accessed.

One of the latest and greatest features we have to offer is a feature that unfortunately today is becoming more necessary in our everyday lives, “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. In the case in Bethlehem, PA cameras in the hall would have shown who the person was that wrote the threat on the wall and saved time in catching the person or persons responsible for the threat. Cameras inside the schools keeps your children protected on so many levels. They will protect your children from bullies, protect teachers from falsely being accused of something and can protect your child from a teacher that may not be treating your child right.

Many schools are now even adding cameras to the actual classrooms. This is often the proof to show parents how their child is behaving in the classroom, or proof of how a teacher may interact with your child. Cameras in the classroom often serve as not just protection for the child and the teacher, but to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future.

Gunfire ringing out in American schools used to be rare, and shocking. Now it seems to happen all the time. Every day, threats send classrooms into lock downs that can frighten students, even when they turn out to be false alarms. Thousands of schools conduct active-shooter drills in which kids as young as 4 hide in darkened closets and bathrooms from imaginary murderers.

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”

“Not safe, very insecure, I fear for my son’s life. You know what I mean, you really hear about things like this in the news, and just to hear that something like that happened so close to home, it scared the life out of me.”

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!

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 throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, this is how we can keep our children safe. It’s time to start planning to get the security your school needs.

Keep in mind, no two schools are the same when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms 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.
