Things to consider when choosing surveillance cameras

Below is a list of a the most important questions that we ask when we come to your location for a security evaluation.  We need as much information as possible to ensure the proper installation and equipment to cover the type of application required.

  • Where is the system going? Is it a home or office? – This is helpful to know as the types of cameras used for different applications can be very similar but coverage can be more limited on lower end cameras that on higher end cameras.
  • Are the cameras going to be inside or outside? – Many camera types are suitable for inside and outside but not all of them.
  • What is the lighting like where the cameras are to be mounted? – This is important to determine if you need infrared cameras or just basic cameras.
  • What is the size of the area that you are trying to cover? (Distance from camera to the end of the property and width of area to be covered) – Many of the lower end or Analog cameras are only able to focus on shorter distances.  These cameras are great for indoor applications but not very useful outdoors.  Then there are the higher resolution HD or IP cameras that will reach quite a bit further or even better, PTZ cameras that you are able to control manually and point, tilt and zoom to the area you want to view.
  • What types of coverage are you looking for? – Are you watching over a cash register? Are you watching over an office? Are you trying to catch someone who is stealing your mail at home? Are you tracking license plates in a public parking lot? These are all different things that we have seen people use cameras for.  This will help to determine the clarity that you need and range of view that you need.
  • What is your budget? – This too can help determine the type of equipment to offer.  If you are a homeowner then chances are you are not going to have the same budget that a large corporation will have.  This can also determine the type and number of cameras to offer.
  • How much time do you need to be able to review? – Some types of companies are required a certain amount of time be available on their camera recordings.  For example: we had a client that due to the type of clients that they catered to they were required by law to be able to access footage as far back as 90 days.  This helped us to determine the proper hard drive size and settings for the cameras to make sure that the footage was guaranteed to save that far back.

All of these are very important things to consider before sitting down with one of our representatives for your free custom security review.  We take pride in everything we do and we want to be sure that you get the right system to fit your needs.  Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or to set up your free evaluation today.

Why security cameras benefit home owners

“Why do I need security cameras on my home?”  or “I don’t need security cameras at home I have a dog that will protect my home.”  These are very common statements that we hear but now a days we hear more and more of criminals breaking into homes, stealing mail or packages off of porches and coming up on the holiday season we can’t tell you how many stories we have heard about people who have their entire family gifts stolen right out of their living room.  We don’t tell you this to scare you just to say that it is not just businesses that can be victim to theft or vandalism.  The career criminals that are out there know exactly how to get around dogs and can be in and out of your home in no time.  They bring treats for your dog, sometimes even laced with poison or sleeping aids to put the dog to sleep long enough for them to get what they came for.  We have taken the time to just personally research on youtube the number of videos of criminals caught on tape and as a result they are charged and taken off of the street so they cannot do this to anyone else.  Their very selfish motives can cause a person to feel extremely helpless when they come home to find that the holiday gifts they worked hard to be able to buy have vanished right before their eyes.  The police come and they make a report and then they say that if there are any leads they will let you know.  More often than not it is never the case.  The items are gone and there is nothing they can do…  But wait… there is if you have cameras.  If these crooks are caught on camera then they can get the footage to the proper people to try to identify the people who have violated you in the most inconsiderate way.  Every day less people are getting away with this kind of crime because of systems like ours.  With our state of the art technology we can cover every nook and cranny and if the worst case scenario happens to you your cameras will provide the video evidence you need to find out who did this and to possibly recover the items you had taken from you. Having cameras on the outside of your home will prevent your very valuable packages coming from friends and family will also be secure and will get to you the way they were supposed to. If you want to be sure that your Holidays are happy, and that no one can take the things you worked hard to buy,  then give us a call or fill out our short contact form.  We do free security evaluations and can tell you exactly where your vulnerabilities lye and how to cover those areas so that if it does ever happen to you the evidence will not lie and criminals will not prevail!

Surveillance Systems in Schools

After all of the school violence in the past 10-15 years, parents and communities have requested more and more security for their schools.  Recently we are hearing of schools installing not only access control but also surveillance systems to be sure that no one goes in or out of the building undetected.  They are installing cameras and duress buttons so that in the case of another violent act they will be able to communicate with the outside world without risking the lives of any of the students or personnel in the building.  As parents, the most important job we have is to keep our kids healthy and safe and when they are out of our sight this becomes the job of those we trust our kids to.  Children as young as 2nd and 3rd grade have been reported bringing weapons to school and then you hear about outside threats like what happened in Sandy Hook where a family member of one of the teachers came in and killed 20 children and 6 adults.  As a result of this, the schools need to be protected better.  With surveillance systems in place the evidence to put these criminals away will be right in front of their eyes and could very easily deter the criminals from acting on their intentions in the first place.  Crime is going to happen no matter what because we have a society that has in so many ways devolved and the best way to respond is to protect the people and things we love the best we know how.  At least with a surveillance camera the perfect crime is becoming a thing of the past.

Cameras, however, do not only need to be in our schools to protect our kids.  With our economy the way it is and the cost of living going up more and more parents are both working and even more of them are single parents.  We have no choice but to work full time to support our family and maintain a comfortable lifestyle.  So more children are home alone after school and in that case a bigger target for thieves and criminals.  What better way to ensure that your kids are safe and secure then to be able to watch over them from your phone, tablet or computer at work?  With a remote access surveillance system you can log in from anywhere and check on your home and your children anytime and be sure that they are free from harm and even make sure they are behaving the way you expect hem to when you are not home.

If you would like to get a free in home evaluation to see how a surveillance system could help you and your kids and give you the peace of mind you deserve, please contact us and we will be happy to come take a look and get you set up to protect your family.

Surveillance System with POS Software

Do you own a retail location that uses a cash register or point of sale (POS) system? Many business owners who have a business that requires the use of a cash register would love to have a record of every item that was rung up, the time, the tender and the person who sold it.  We have a POS system that can integrate into a surveillance camera system that when pointed at a register will not only keep track of your register, and if any cash finds its way into an employee’s pocket, but also is tied into the register itself and will show on screen as the items are scanned, the item name, the quantity and at the end of a transaction will show the total and tender.  If there are any discounts they will show on screen.  If the cash register is off after a cashier ends their shift, you could go into the video and see just where the mistake happened and if it was indeed a mistake.  Everyone knows that mistakes happen but why not cover your own interest and the interest of your employees by providing an indisputable video proof of what happened and when.  This prevents false accusations of theft and hurt feelings all around.  If in fact the employee is stealing from the company then again you will have the proof you need to not only terminate the employee but also to prosecute as theft is a crime no matter how big or small.  If you would like to learn more about POS systems please give us a call and we will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Different Uses for Security Cameras in Your Business

Surveillance cameras are placed in offices for many different reasons but the main reason is quite simple; offices are busy places and it is really hard to stop an unwanted strangers from going inside the building. In order to check the entrance and departure of visitors in the building, many companies set up security cameras on the main entrance of the building. The video recorded by these is handled in a separate room on a stand alone DVR and often times is available for later viewing but not necessarily monitored full time. It is to make sure that any stranger entering the premises is documented and can be useful in times when there is an incident that you need a witness to. The footage can be utilized to catch criminals in case of an incident like theft or break in when the company is not operational.

However, many businesses fail to take advantage of security surveillance systems and don’t realize their value until it is too late. They don’t think that security cameras can be beneficial for them.

How can one utilize these security cameras other than monitoring the entrances?

Check out different useful proposes:

Monitoring your employees: Installing security cameras at your work place will assist you in monitoring, the productivity of your workers. You can also rest assure that all workers are coming in on time and departing on time.  You can check whether the employees are working or simply chatting with their friends. If you own a retail location you can monitor your register to keep track of all of your transactions with our POS system that can be linked directly into an offsite computer through remote access. Apart from this, you can monitor each and every activity going on among the employees, so it is really a helping hand for you.

Record your conferences – For most businesses, clients are quite important to a company’s revenue.  If you have the type of business that clients come to your office to discuss important details and contracts, it is often times helpful to keep a record of meetings and details that could easily be misinterpreted if the information was not clear. You can easily go through the details and information with them and record any meetings with our overhead microphone application and then there is no doubt as to what was discussed on a very important account or contract. Through surveillance cameras, one can easily record any footage and conversation without any difficulty. You can easily use the information if for some reason the client decides to change something that was previously agreed upon. They can assist you in covering significant details about the business being conducted and can be compelling arguments if a breach of contract does take place in the future.

Utilize them near time clocks: Many businesses utilize a time clock to mark the time worked by their employees. However, sometimes, employees leave the office during their scheduled shift and come back at clock-out time. In order to keep on the safe side, one can put cameras near time clocks to monitor the time employees clock in and out as well as the cameras around the building to ensure that the times they logged on the time clock truly are the times they work. This way, no employee can take advantage of you as you go about your day running the business and it would be easy for you to take action against fraudulent workers.

What does security mean to you?

To define security you could go the old fashion route and look up the dictionary definition and it will tell you that Security means safety and freedom from harm, anxiety and doubt or precautions taken to protect yourself from the same.   To take this definition to the next level you need to really evaluate what the word means to you individually.

As a homeowner, security most likely means that your property, family and pets are safe and free from harm.  Security means that you have the peace of mind knowing that when you are not home you don’t have to worry that an outside force is not damaging or destroying what you value the most.  We all work hard for the things that we value most.  As a parent, you want to know that if your children are at home they are not at risk or that they are not doing something that you would not approve of if you were home.  Some people even have the same concerns when it comes to their pets.  Not everyone has children and as pet owners pets are just as important as children and even more they are helpless to defend themselves against someone who would enter your home to take what does not belong to them.  Criminals do not care who they hurt and that is why security cameras have become so prevalent in homes as well as businesses.

That brings me to the next subject.  As a business owner, security means a great deal considering that when you own a business, that is your livelihood and a means to support, protect and secure the family and property that you value outside of the business.  When a business is secure, the employees feel safer, the business owner can feel confident that when his or her back is turned, their livelihood is not in jeopardy.  With security cameras in your business you can keep an eye on your investment at all times by monitoring the video footage onsite or remotely and know that if something or someone does not have your company’s best interest in mind you can take the proper steps to ensure the safety and security of the biggest investment you have.  Cameras are used inside and outside of a business to ensure that all angles are monitored and if anything happens, that could cause the company undue stress or cost money to repair, is not unnoticed.  The most common risk for a company is unproductive employees who are getting paid and are not performing to their full potential.  With cameras inside your business the employees are aware that they are being monitored and studies have showed that the productivity of a business can be greatly increased by just adding a couple cameras.  Outside cameras can monitor people coming and going from your business and for companies that utilize company vehicles, the equipment that cannot be stored indoors is also being monitored.

Theft and vandalism is a very universal crime and can happen both in and around a home or a business.  The effect it has on the person who invests their time and money to have the things they have can be devastating.  Why not be sure that if a criminal has the mind to destroy, steal or damage someone else’s property they are caught in the act.  If you would like us to come evaluate your home or business for security cameras we offer a free no obligation site survey that gives you a good idea of what could potentially save you, your property and your money in the long run.  Feel free to contact us by phone, email or our short contact form on our website and we would be more than happy to schedule a free security evaluation at your convenience.

Fight back Crime with Surveillance Security Cameras

Every day or every other day you hear stories on the news or internet about a security camera catching someone in the act of doing something.  Sometimes they are caught doing good, sometimes it’s animals doing funny things that make our day but most of the time if you hear about a security camera catching something it’s because someone has done something wrong and is caught in the act.  From discreet hidden cameras to the large cameras you see on the streets for traffic monitoring, cameras are becoming a big part of society today.  For many reasons people add cameras to their homes or businesses to ensure that they are protected from criminals.  Sometimes it’s not only criminals that get caught but people that you know and trust that change their behavior when you are not around.  Nannies for example are getting caught at an alarming rate because of hidden nanny cams that catch them being not so nice as soon as the parents are gone.  Times like this make us really sad and want to protect our children even more than we ever have.  With surveillance cameras you will have video evidence which is admissible in court for any crime or violation that could come your way.  It is very damaging to the criminal and even harder for them to dispute.  Anymore the police department won’t even prosecute or investigate a crime without evidence and video is very compelling evidence.  If you are concerned and would like to find out if security cameras would be a good fit for you or your business please fill out our contact form and we will schedule a free evaluation of your property to give you a customized protection system that will act as your own personal eye witness if you ever need it.
