CCTV System Installation in NJ

Security is very vital for any business. There is no way you can be profitable without protecting your assets. Electronic video security systems are one way you can keep tabs with what is happening in and around your premises. Today we at TR Alarm Systems Inc would like to discuss CCTV system installation in NJ

The systems have become intelligent over time enabling you to detect any motion, follow a person or an object, send notifications on your mobile phone, contact law enforcement agencies, detect abandoned objects, detect loitering, scan for increased heat levels and much more. They are also systems that can be customized to meet your specific needs. 

However, with all these options and capabilities, it may be hard to pinpoint the exact features that you need for your business. Here are some guidelines for you.

The resolution of the camera 
This is a vital aspect of video surveillance. You need a camera that can give you images or video where you can identify individuals or objects in it. Do not go for a camera with a resolution below 720p. If you need cameras to detect vehicle registration numbers and other small things, you need the one with a higher resolution. 

Frame rate 
The frame rate is the transition from one image to the other in a video. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the video. All a video is, is a series of still images that are taken in close succession. We recommend cameras that have a frame rate of not less than 30 frames per second. 

Camera models 
There are several camera models in the market today. The common ones are dome cameras, bullet cameras, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras and heat cameras. Each has its best area of application. For example, bullet cameras are ideal for surveillance on a hallway, while PTZ cameras are ideal for a large park where you can pan the video to identify something. 

Indoor and outdoor camera 
There is a difference between indoor and outdoor cameras. Outdoor cameras are weather proof, and cannot be easily damaged by thugs or malicious people (IP7 rated). Indoor cameras are cheaper but more vulnerable if used outside. 

You can store videos on  DVR that is located on the premises. However, you can also decide to store images in the cloud or on a remote NVR systems out of the premises. When you decide to install CCTV with us, our experts will help calculate the adequate storage space for the number of cameras that you have. Another thing that you have to look at is the compression rates of the DVR or NVR systems. Compression eliminates unnecessary data to save you space. The common compression technologies are H.264 and MJPEG.

When it comes to installation, you've decided to take this final step because you care about your property safe. As a security company, we at TR Alarm Systems Inc care about our clients. We want them to feel as safe and protected as possible. To ensure this we look out for blind spots, and make a point to understand all the nooks and crannies of the premises to provide maximum security.

Commercial Security Systems in NYC

How to Choose the Right Commercial Security System

Securing your commercial premises from threats is a priority to safeguard your investment. Be it an office, a warehouse or a parking lot, it is important to have a robust security system that will enable faster response to threats and provide deterrence. A commercial security system is more complex than a home security system in that it must screen entrants, provide surveillance, and alerts over a larger area.  Today at TR Alarm Systems Inc, we want to provide some insight that will serve as a guide for selecting the right commercial security systems in NYC.

Commercial Security Systems in NYC
Security needs
Different commercial premises have different security needs. A hospital’s security needs are different from those of a jewelry store. Some factors that influence your security needs are;

• Incidences of crime- What are the crime statistics in the neighborhood? Are you in a high crime neighborhood or low crime area?
• Types of crimes- what crimes are commonly committed in the neighborhood? Are threats from burglars greater than threats on employees, or assets?
• Personal safety- How likely are your employees and customers likely to be attacked for cash and other valuables?

These 3 factors will provide assessment points for the needs which the security system will address.

Installation needs
Different premises present different challenges in the installation of a security system. It is important that you assess some aspects of your premises.

•    Entrances – How many points in the premises can be used as entrances? These include windows, doors, air vents, access hatches and plumbing lines. All these points need to be secured. Determine how best to secure each entry point. What is most appropriate? Is it a lock, surveillance camera, shatterproof glass etc.?
•    Interior needs – How do you secure the interior of your premises? How do you prevent unauthorized access to certain areas? You will need to determine how to secure rooms with valuables and cash. What is most appropriate, badge access, fingerprint reader, or pin lock?
•    Lighting – lights are an integral part of the security system. You have to assess the premises to determine the points that need lighting and where to place the lights. You will also have to assess which security mechanisms blend well with the lights.

Monitoring and control
You should be able to monitor what is happening on the premises round the clock. This means installing a system that can provide alerts in real-time when you are far away from the premises, if there is no guard on site. Consider the benefits of having a mobile based security system that can show real-time images of the premises. You can also opt for a system that can be controlled from your mobile phone for quicker response.

Custom Security Systems in NJ

Today, we at TR Alarm Systems Inc want to discuss important points to consider when arranging custom security systems in NJ.

A home security system offers you the peace of mind knowing that your family and assets are secure. Installing the right security system can prove very useful when the home is threatened by malicious persons or fire. With different security systems available, you must know which is best suited for your security needs. Making the appropriate choice means that you install a security system that is affordable and functional according to your needs.

What should you consider when making the choice of a custom security system?

This is one of the key functions of a security system. You should be able to monitor what is going on at home at all times. There are three ways that security systems enable monitoring; by landline, by mobile and by internet broadband.

Monitoring by landline means that when the alarm is triggered, the signal is transmitted via landline telephone network. While this is affordable, it can be easily disabled by cutting the landline.

Custom Security Systems in NJ 
Monitoring by cellphone uses the mobile network to relay signals. An SMS alert is sent when there is an alarm.  The obvious advantage of this is that alerts can be responded to very quickly as the cellphone is usually near the user.

Monitoring by the internet uses internet connectivity to relay alerts. The biggest advantage of an internet based security system is that you can view what is going on using an Internet Protocol (IP) camera. The system can also be controlled over the internet.

Home ownership
If you are a renter, you are probably restricted in modifying a house.  A wireless security system would be more appropriate as you can install it without laying piping in the walls. If you own the house, you are free to use a wired system.

Surveillance cameras
Do you need surveillance cameras? The benefit of having cameras is that you can see what is happening at home. You can respond better to an intrusion alert. You can check if it is a harmless alert, for example, a straying pet or a high-level threat, for example, burglars at the door and respond accordingly.

Mobile alerts
Do you need to control the system using mobile commands? When making the choice for a custom security system, it is better to go for one that allows real-time remote monitoring which will enable better response to threats.

A mobile based security system is more robust and versatile. With an internet enabled smartphone, you can view what the cameras are recording when an alert comes up. Highly automated systems allow for control of the heating and lighting system from the mobile.
