Your home is one of the greatest investments you can make; protecting it should be a close second.With more than 20 years of experience in the CCTV/low voltage industry, Central Jersey Security Cameras (CJSC) will protect your home in ways that a traditional alarm system cannot. “Cameras are more of a deterrent than an alarm system.They are much more of a preventive measure,” says Bob Murphy, part-owner of CJSC says.“As technology has changed, so have people’s minds. If someone wants to harm your house and sees it has an alarm, they know they will have a 10- minute window at best before the police arrive. But if they see security cameras, they know they’re going to be caught on film, and no one wants to end up on the nightly news.” CJSC and its ownership are based in Freehold.“With state-of-theart technology, we easily link the cameras to your smart phone to allow you to keep an eye on your home and business at all times, with no monthly monitoring fees.All are equipped with night vision and motion sensors.We will have the right custom fit for whatever our customers need,” Murphy says. Start to finish, CJSC guarantees their work. From their on-site evaluation, to neatly run, carefully laid hidden wires, a tutorial on how to operate the cameras and DVRs, and a warranty on the equipment, CJSC will not leave a job until you are satisfied with the installation and education on your security system.A Monmouth County police officer recently called CJSC for security cameras on his own house. He was extremely satisfied with the product and craftsmanship.“I respond to a lot of burglary calls in Monmouth County and found having a security camera system is now more of a deterrent than an alarm system. It seems the would-be intruders are not entering the homes equipped with cameras,” he stated.You cant put a price on protecting your family and property.Today’s security camera systems can do a lot more than a typical alarm; it will send you an email immediately with a picture of the intruder within 10 seconds of stepping foot in front of the camera.You don’t have to pay someone to monitor your home.You can do it for free, in real time.
