  • Videofied Wireless Commercial Security False Alarm Prevention

    When a security alarm goes off, it indicates one of two things: either a crime is being committed or a false alarm is about to mislead security personnel and/or police. But how can you tell the difference? An alarm is an alarm, right?

    Fortunately, the Videofied system can be purchased from Security Alarms, Inc. as an upgrade to your current alarm system, providing additional Orange County wireless commercial security for any business or corporation. With an IP 65 weather rating, infrared illumination up to 30 feet, and a three-year battery life, this is the perfect addition to any security system, especially when aimed at a specific entrance or item.

    How does it work? Well, when movement occurs in your protected area, the wireless video feed turns on and streams 10 seconds of visual coverage, sending that coverage to our central station. They can then quickly review the feed to discover whether it is a false alarm or a potentially damaging situation. If it isn’t a false alarm, police can be instantly alerted and will respond quickly if they know an intruder is on site, it's that simple.

    So what companies can make use of this commercial alarm enhancement device?

    • Construction Sites – Teenagers and vandals often think its fun to break into construction sites and do damage. Burglars will also break in to see if there are any valuable tools worth selling. In addition to a wireless alarm system with floodlights, Videofied cameras can be mounted along the perimeter, catching those coming through the gates or hopping the fence.
    • Utility Substations – When vandals or terrorists strike, the police can be alerted almost instantly, viewing a video of the intruders before destruction can begin. And when deer or dogs wander casually through the grounds, the false alarm can be caught by the central station and dismissed.
    • Mining Companies – A remote mine is an ideal place for motion sensor cameras. Many other security systems would fail because of the presence of animal life, making alerts commonplace and criminals harder to catch. But with a Videofied system, human operators can filter out the false alarms caused by animals and alert the police when people enter the equation.
    • Doctor's Offices – Doctors often keep expensive medical equipment and drugs, luring in burglars who want to make a quick buck. But a 10 second stream will show an intruder on site.
    • Corporate Headquarters – Corporations keep many things in their headquarters, from production specs to expensive equipment. And anything from corporate espionage to vandalism can occur in these buildings. To keep criminals at bay, Videofied cameras can be installed in entrance lobbies, across from backdoor entrances, and in rooms with sensitive projects. If someone steps into the video field, the sensor will trigger and alert the central station, providing valuable video feed of the area.
    • Retail Stores – High-end retail stores can hold millions of dollars in merchandise at any given time, which is why security is so important. Motion sensor video cameras set to monitor after the store closes will ensure product safety and the speedy apprehension of burglars.
    • Real Estate Agencies – When a property is vacant, it is open to everything from vandalism and burglary to squatters and drug rings. To prevent this, real estate agencies can simply install a wireless alarm system with cameras inside the home aimed at the entrance points. If something moves in that vacant house, the camera will catch it.

    The right security alarm system can save your business from theft and vandalism, alerting your monitoring company to any and all potential problems. And here at Security Alarms, Inc. in Orange County, we offer our commercial customers the best products on the market to ensure the safety of their assets and equipment. That's why we encourage our customers to use the Videofied system, which can save them time and money.

    Videofied is a motion activated camera system that can easily be added to the wireless alarm system you have installed. It is not a surveillance system itself, but it is a powerful tool for any business or product producing plant. Why? Well, it could mean the difference between apprehending a burglar and receiving a large bill from the Sheriff's department. Let me explain using a recent story with two possible endings.

    A fledgling electronics company is developing a high-end piece of memory chip technology that could change the world of electronics. They have several prototypes at their location and so they have installed a wireless security alarm system from Security Alarms. The silent alarm is set to go off at night if it senses that a door is ajar, indicating someone is in the building.

    One night, the alarm goes off. It's 10pm and everyone has gone home for the day. Here are the two possible endings.

    1. The alarm monitoring company gets the silent alarm response and alerts the police department. Within 10 minutes, there is a police cruiser in the parking lot, looking around for signs of an intruder. After discovering that a late-working employee has simply left the door ajar on their way out, they call the owner, make sure the building is secure, and charge the company for the waste of police hours. The building is secure and, had there been a burglary in progress, the police would have apprehended the culprits. However, this time the call just cost the company money.
    2. The alarm monitoring company gets the silent alarm response and notes that the motion detector didn’t pick up anyone walking up to the door. They then alert the company owner, letting them know that the alarm is going off but there are no intruders in the building. The owner heads out, shuts the door, and resets the alarm. No police time is wasted and no cost is accrued.

    Videofied systems can save you time and money by turning on whenever there is movement. This means that any potential criminals will be caught on video breaking into your building, which will alert the police to their numbers and equipment. Of course, this also means that false alarms will be quickly identified, keeping your company secure and monetarily better off. It's a win-win.

    Proper Placement for Motion Sensor Cameras

  • Motion Sensor Camera Placement

    When you purchase a commercial security system from Security Alarms, Inc., you will have 24-hour protection. So, if your alarm is activated, our central station will immediately be alerted. And they, in turn, will alert the police for you. This will ensure a fast response to the activation and, if you have a Videofied camera installed it will verify an intruder is on site.

    Motion sensors can be set off by myriad things, from vandals breaking into your property to a or a bug inside the sensor, setting off the system. Fortunately, Videofied cameras record 10 seconds of video, showing the central station exactly what is happening at your place of business. That is why proper camera placement is important. Here are some examples of how Videofied works best:

    • A scrap metal company placed motion-sensing cameras around the perimeter of their parts yard, facing into the yard so passing pedestrians and motorists didn't set off the system. They also included cameras directly on a couple of the more expensive pieces. When burglars broke into the yard, they were caught on the wrong side of the fence by the cameras. Those 10 seconds of video showed the police that there were two burglars within the yard’s perimeter. The second 10 seconds of video (shot from the camera on the moving metal) showed the police that a large piece of metal was being moved, further indicating the thieves’ intentions. Both pieces were great evidence against the criminals once they were apprehended outside the fence line a few minutes later.
    • A diamond store was located in a group of buildings separated by slim alleyways. The owner had a Videofied camera installed on the building opposite, pointing directly at the ground floor windows. Later, that same camera caught someone loitering in the alley. On film, that person picked up a piece of wood, broke the window, and started climbing through into the store. Police apprehended him while he was climbing back out of the window into the alley. He was holding $1000 worth of jewelry.
    • A lawyer’s office installed a motion-sensing camera in the corner of the lobby, directly pointing at the door. When the silent alarm went off, there was a video indicating a vandal entering the room with a bat. Police were called and the man was apprehended shortly after he began to trash the office.

    While 10 seconds of video feed doesn't sound like a lot, sometimes it’s the most important piece of evidence the police have for catching and convicting criminals. Plus, it makes false alarms a thing of the past. For many Orange County business owners today, that peace of mind is worth purchasing.
