House Security Monitoring

You’ll have a hard time obtaining a member of the political or celebrity elite who doesn’t have his very own team of specialists monitoring his gates and home movie monitoring system at all hours (not to mention his bodyguard, who assures that any trip past the perimeter of his private estate is as secure as humanly feasible).

This, sadly, is the kind of detailed provider that is out of most peoples achieve – and, without a doubt, is genuinely not required for the regular individual. Men and women call for cash to cover each and every hour of their time dedicated to your support, whereas machines, as soon as you own them, will do your bidding till they break down. What’s much more, a totally integrated residence safety security method, making use of protection cameras and PIR movement detectors, will scare off the vast vast majority of intruders, although at the identical time recording footage to make sure you identify the intruders and prevent them from staging a repeat attempt.

Of course, in purchase to report substantial-top quality footage for days or weeks at a time, you’d require an particularly potent pc program capable of storing terabyte upon terabyte of details. Numerous people do just this, buying high-priced Hybrid Digital Movie Recorders (HDVRs) that record numerous camera feeds at as soon as. Each these solutions use a method of looped recording that copies above footage a couple of times or a week soon after it’s recorded, ensuring your information pool doesn’t grow to be unreasonably big.

However, by cleverly making use of a number of of the fundamental, lower-end technologies that are staples of house protection monitoring nowadays, a single can pretty simply devise a very much a lot more efficient method of home video surveillance. To begin, merely set up PIR motion detectors all over the location. PIR movement detectors use only a tiny quantity of energy, need no details storage room, and will be activated any time somebody walks into their cone-shaped area of view. They’re activated by adjustments in temperature this sort of that, when just a element of the industry they’re ‘observing’ alterations, and that adjust shifts its place inside their visual area, PIR movement detectors study that shift as movement.

A single may possibly further improve the efficacy of this sort of a household video clip monitoring technique by installing panning, tilting and zooming (PTZ) cameras. This kind of cameras make use of superior application to track the movement of intruders as they move about the property.

These times, you can acquire a PIR motion detector for below $ 20, and straightforward webcams and door and window contacts expense even less. Thus it’s definitely probable to develop an efficient home protection monitoring technique utilizing only the cheapest of components, even as a lot more advanced, state-of-the-art technology provides strengths that aren’t simply replicated on shoestring budgets.

One in Two Americans Who Plan to Use Credit Cards Fearful About Credit Card Security This Holiday Season

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

More than half of American consumers are worried about credit card security, suggests a recent Lexington Law survey conducted online on their behalf by Harris Poll.

Lexington Law commissioned Harris Poll to survey more than 2,000 adults age 18 and older and ask specific questions about whether their credit cards have been breached, what types of payment forms they intend to use for holiday shopping, and their feelings regarding credit card security breaches in general.

While some blame credit card companies, most Americans (70 percent) believe that retail chains are at fault for credit card breaches. The survey also revealed that 65 percent of holiday shoppers say they have used or plan to use cash to pay for their purchases compared to 61% who plan to use credit cards this holiday season.

The study, conducted in late October, found that 51 percent of Americans who plan to use a credit card for their holiday shopping are fearful of being affected by security breaches. In addition, for one of every two people, the risk of identity theft due to a credit card breach outweighs the benefits and potential rewards of using a credit card to purchase gifts.

“After so many high-profile security breaches this past year, these kinds of consumer attitudes really aren’t a surprise,” said Randy Padawer, a consumer advocate for Lexington Law, the nation’s leading credit report repair provider. “What is surprising, and perhaps disconcerting for retailers, is just how many consumers say they prefer cash instead.”

Other interesting survey highlights:

    41 percent of Americans who have credit cards say their cards have been compromised in some way.
    21 percent who have had their credit card breached said it happened in a retail store.
    67 percent of Americans whose credit cards had been compromised reported that the experience had not yet changed how often they use their credit cards online or in-store

“Identity theft so widely associated with credit card breaches can be extremely damaging to people’s credit scores,” Padawer added. Lexington Law’s service offering can help consumers repair the damaging effects of these, and other, events by correcting inaccurate or unsubstantiated items from their credit report. Fair and accurate credit reports lead to better credit scores and improved consumer confidence.

###

Full methodology:

This survey was conducted online within the United States between October 29-31, 2014 among 2,022 adults, age 18 and older, by Harris Poll on behalf of Lexington Law via its Quick Query omnibus product. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online.

All sample surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, the words “margin of error” are avoided as they are misleading. All that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities for pure, unweighted, random samples with 100% response rates. These are only theoretical because no published polls come close to this ideal.

Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have agreed to participate in our surveys. The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of the adult population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in the online panel, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

SubscriberWise Implores President Obama to help with a Legislative Effort to Require Federal Agencies to Create an Index of Living Childrens Social security Numbers to Substantially Reduce Fraud and Exploitation


Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 11, 2014

SubscriberWise®, a leading provider of analytics-driven subscriber decision management technology and the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry, announced today that the company founder is asking the President of the United States to leverage his Office and his persuasive power to help advance a proposed legislative initiative that would dramatically reduce child identity theft.

Read the latest news that exposes the State of Ohio’s failure to advocate and protect a 14-year-old child: http://www.enhancedonlinenews.com/news/eon/20141010005495/en/SubscriberWise/Child-Identity-Theft/Social-Security

“Today I am respectfully asking the President of the United States to give careful consideration and attention to this urgent child safety initiative,” said David Howe, president of SubscriberWise. “I’m requesting President Obama’s help passing a child safety law that is focused on protecting a minor’s social security number through technology solutions and educational initiatives.”

“I will also use this opportunity to advise Mr. Obama and the First Lady that their daughters may be vulnerable to identity thieves, just like children who are exploited every day in this country,” continued Howe. “But unlike the Obama children and the children of resourceful and powerful women and men, the overwhelming majority of children who become victims of this under-reported and rarely-prosecuted crime, they almost never have a voice or advocacy. These children suffer the consequences alone,” emphasized Howe.

“The police, the prosecutors, the national credit bureaus, business and creditors – none of these organizations is initially aware that a social security number submitted with a credit application or presented to law-enforcement may belong to a living minor child. That’s inexcusable,” declared Howe.

“And if it’s ever confirmed that a child’s identity was stolen, it’s often too late,” argued Howe.

(http://www.subscriberwise.com/U.S._Creditors_Criminally_Duped.pdf)

“Over the course of an entire decade, I’ve engaged and educated hundreds of child identity thieves. Contrary to FTC publication on child identity theft, it’s almost always the parent, guardian, or relative of the minor who perpetrates the crime,” explained Howe. “It’s rarely a random thief who just happened upon the child’s personal information.”

“It’s obvious to me from many years’ experience that we as a nation are not doing enough to manage this problem,” insisted Howe. “I’m convinced that Congress – and President Obama – must immediately focus their time and resources to help minimize this problem.”

“As the founder of a national Issuing CRA and a witness to technology solutions, it’s my strong position that a child-SSN index, along with a federal educational initiative, is critical to impacting this problem,” Howe concluded.
