Peace of Mind? Piece of Cake!

PEACE OF MIND?
How many times have you wished that there was more than one of you? That you could be in multiple places
at once? That you had eyes everywhere you needed to be, even in the back of your head…. If you are like
most your answer would be ‘more times than I can count’. The pressures of family, the never-closing
marketplace and rising crime rates leave us all stressed out and stretched thin. It is impossible for us to be
everywhere we need to be and the result is often that something falls through the cracks when we aren’t
watching.

Protecting Your Assets at Home and Work

There is no need for us to remind you of the importance of protecting your assets. Wherever you live, work, sleep, and play, important possessions and pieces of your identity are left behind. In particular, your family and pets at home need to be protected from crime. Whether or not you are constantly aware of the dangers facing your assets every day, you need to take the appropriate steps to protect them now. Like good insurance, good security is a current investment to protect you against a future disaster.
Here are the most important ways we believe that you can protect your assets:

Keeping Your Home Safe with the Right Security Camera System

One of the most common types of crime is burglary. The FBI estimates that once every 15-20 minutes, someone’s house is broken into. We have seen homeowners take a number of measures to protect their property, including reinforcing their windows and installing fences, and have helped many Denver homeowners by installing computerized security systems and security cameras. Cameras provide a security service that is essential for the fully protected home. If you want to keep your family as safe as possible, read on to find out the benefits of home security cameras.

Providing an Extra Set of Eyes

Security cameras can provide you with essential vision in multiple areas of your yard and the exterior of your home. If you have a large piece of property, you will want to be able to see trespassers before they’re right on top of you. Having a security camera system in place that you can check will ensure that you have the advantage of precious minutes to call the police if someone breeches your fence. If you’re worried that your yard provides hiding places for criminals, installing cameras in low-visibility areas can increase your well-being and diminish worrying.

Many modern camera systems have special features that allow you to watch your yard and home exterior even when you’re not at home. The feed can be checked from a smartphone or remote computer so that when you’re at work or away on a vacation, you can make sure that nothing’s going on that could compromise your home’s safety. This feature increases your vision over great distances.

Giving Evidence

If your home is ever broken into, security cameras are one of the simplest ways to see who did it and give irrefutable evidence to convict the culprit. Even though TV shows make gathering DNA and fingerprints seem easy, these are actually difficult to find at a crime scene. Fingerprints are only helpful if the perpetrator already has their prints in a law enforcement database. Fingerprints can also be difficult to match. Incomplete or damaged finger prints will not provide enough evidence to convict someone of a crime without eye-witness testimony or some other form of evidence.

A security camera feed can give indisputable proof that you were robbed or your property was damaged. The evidence from cameras has been used in countless trials and proceedings to make sure that justice was served and that the homeowners were compensated for damage caused by the crime that took place on their property. This is why camera systems are great additions to your safety measures.

6 important reasons to upgrade from an analog CCTV System to a Hybrid HD or IP system. 

Denver has been/is growing rapidly, hence instances of property crime are on the rise as well and now more than ever, protecting homes, businesses and possessions from theft and vandalism are vital. One of the best ways to prevent crime and protect property is by utilizing a video surveillance system. CCTV (closed circuit television) systems have been used reliably for decades but recent advances in our Hybrid HD (can support HD & Analog) & IP systems offer many advantages and features not available on analog systems. Hybrid HD and IP network systems can instantly improve the way that surveillance video is captured, processed and stored.

Mobile & Remote Access Video Surveillance Camera Systems

How to Secure Your Surveillance System From Hackers

IP cameras arhackere great! They are high-tech, internet-based cameras that provide a great picture and high performance.  However, having an internet-based security camera system puts you at risk for attacks by hackers. Here are some tips on how to set up road blocks for hackers before they can even try to crack your system.

  • Get rid of that default user name and password. Did you know that you can look up default passwords and other default information for most products on the internet? Just make sure it is a password unique to your system–don’t use your email password!
  • Use video encryption. This can be a bit tricky, but with a little help from a tech-saavy friend or a professional, it is a very viable option for securing your system.
  • Turn on your firewall. Make sure your firewall is enabled for your router and modem, this is another layer of protection.
  • Avoid wireless systems. Wired systems are much more secure than wireless.                                               …Until next time… Stay safe!
