Panic Alarm Installations NJ

After recent school shootings in Massachusetts and Nevada, the debate over school safety has once again been renewed. Assemblyman Ralph Caputo is now trying to pass a bill that he proposed last January that calls for all New Jersey public schools to have panic alarms installed. Legislation will also call for a red alarm light to be placed on the school’s exterior and linked to go off along with the panic alarm.

The proposal describes a panic alarm as any silent alarm that will alert authorities in cases of emergencies. T&R Alarm Systems Inc is a professional company that performs panic alarm installations in NJ. Have been providing the tri-state area with different types of security systems and alarms for over four decades. We have installed panic alarms and security systems to many public buildings, including schools and college campuses.

There are many different types of equipment that can be used in security systems. Some of the things that we can setup include closed circuit TV cameras, intercoms and door access control systems. Our technicians know the best way to install any equipment for any given location.

NJ Commercial Fire Alarm Installation

Commercial fire alarm installation is something that cannot be taken lightly. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is an international nonprofit organization that was established in 1985. Their mission is to provide consensus codes and standards, research, training and education about fire safety. The NFPA 72 requirements on mass notification systems are based on the U.S. Dept. of Defense Uniform Facilities Criteria, which entails an outlined risk analysis. The NFPA 72 defines a risk analysis as “a process to characterize the likelihood, vulnerability, and magnitude of incidents associated with natural, technological, and manmade disasters and other emergencies that address scenarios of concern, their probability, and their potential consequences.” When a commercial fire alarm designer follows the NFPA 72, they are designing a mass notification system that is specifically tailored to a facility based upon:

  • Maximum occupant load for occupiable spaces
  • Type of occupancy
  • Perceived danger
  • Effects on occupant behavior
  • Rates of hazard escalation
  • Types of emergency hazards/events
  • Occupant notification for given events

If you are in need of commercial fire installation in NJ, it is important that the installers follow the NFPA 72 guidelines to guarantee that you are meeting state regulations and that your system is working properly. T&R Alarm Systems Inc. employees are National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) trained, which qualifies us for hospitals, nursing homes, schools, government buildings and much more.

How Much Do You Know About Parking Lot Security

According to recent statistics, parking lots are currently the highest source of risk of incidents that people are subjected to throughout the day. Surveillance and security measures are more important in parking areas than anywhere else, and this is currently a hot topic for security companies across the country. Parking lot security is just as important in hospital parking lots as it is in strip malls and housing developments, and the steps that must be taken to ensure the comfort of clients and customers are many-fold.

The parking lots that have the highest level of risk for security breach are large venue lots and mall parking lots, and here is where the vigilant owners put the best security measures. LED lighting is a significant help, since removing the darkness will make people more comfortable but also cut down on darkened areas that attract break-ins and assaults. It is also recommended that emergency call boxes and panic stations be integrated with video surveillance systems, because these can help you locate what area needs the assistance and also get immediate help to the scene of the crime. As important as these are, so too is the signage that lets people know what parking lot security measures are being practiced in your facility. Statistics have shown that criminals avoid areas with cameras and clear warnings to keep customers from becoming unsuspecting victims.

For more information about parking lot security systems, contact T&R Alarm Systems Inc and learn about what you can do to step up the parking security in your building.

Tips about Burglary

After a recent occurrence of burglaries in Fair Lawn, NJ, the time to update your burglar alarm service is upon us more than ever. Since July 17, it has been reported that 12 homes have been broken into throughout the town of Fairlawn, a rash of burglary that has the police baffled. Before you panic, take into account these tips to prevent being the victim of a burglary taken from the experts of T&R Alarm Systems Inc.
  • Invest in a bolted-down safe that cannot be removed from your home, and store important documents inside. 
  • Keep expensive equipment out of sight and covered up if possible, so that it does not catch the attention of people looking through windows and doors.
  • Since the highest percentage of burglaries occurs during the summer months of July and August – while people are away – it is always a good idea to have a neighbor check up on the house and leave lights on timers throughout the night.
  • Homes without private security systems and burglar alarm systems are 2/3rds more likely to be broken into.
  • Jewelry is often a target of thefts, so keep jewelry out of obvious storage spaces and if possible in a locked and secured box or cabinet.
  • Photocopy the receipts of expensive items for insurance reasons.
  • Do not leave ground floor windows open for ventilation when you leave the house, since this is an easy way to access the house.

Take these tips to heart and do not fall victim to a burglary. If you are interested in upgrading your home to feature a burglar alarm system, speak with an expert at T&R Alarm Systems Inc.
