Ever tired of being one step ahead of everything? You’re always prepared, always thinking about the next season, setting your sights on summer in the middle of February. Well, good for you (and everyone around)! You are the responsible one, always ready for what lies ahead. And when it comes to home safety and securing your premises, this is the only right thing to do – getting on top of the best summer safety tips.
Summer months bring a spike in property crimes. So it is wise to make a few changes around your home and avoid the potential break-in mess. First thing is to do some home maintenance or makeover. This sends a proper signal to potential burglars that you’re in control. Mowing a lawn or trimming the bushes can help remove possible hiding spots for intruders.
Summer home security
You probably own a lot of goods burglars want – different equipment, bikes, and other highly desirable items and storing them into your garage. And this is where your home gets vulnerable. Garages and back doors are the least secure places of any home ad that makes them a perfect break-in entrance places. So, what can you do? A proper home security camera kit will do the trick, as well as keeping your doors locked, especially the one connected to your home.
And if you leave your car window rolled down, burglars could use the automatic opener sitting on the dashboard to access your garage. So, always keep the windows rolled up and all doors locked. You are not that fast in comparison with the burglars – so you better be cautious.
With the proper alarm system installed, there is a good chance the burglar will choose an easier target. Investing in the efficient home security system will strengthen your home’s defense, but also make your family more aware of the dangers you’re facing constantly. A proper home security system should at least include monition sensors, camera kit, and detectors on all doors and windows. An extra layer of protection against burglars could be outdoor cameras, highly positioned and visible to any passenger. This will also protect your valuables in the garage, from cars to bikes and tools.
Summer Safety Checklist
- As we already said – make sure all door locks are functioning properly and all windows latch correctly. Repair all the damage immediately.
- Lighting check – all pathways have to be well-lit and shine a light on all points of entry.
- Shut and lock all doors, don’t be lazy.
- Be good to your neighbors, and ask them to look after your home while you’re away.
- Avoid publicly discussing travel and stay-at-home arrangements.
- Keep valuable electronics and other valuables secured.
- Pay attention to your family surroundings, kids’ friends and acquaintances, advise them to be cautious too.
You can always ask a good friend or a family member to keep an eye on your home. You can ask them to visit occasionally, collect the mail, turn on the lights (and switch them off). So, anything that could signal the house is not vacant and somebody is inside or could be there any minute. This includes keeping quiet about your plans, posting on social media while away, and so. Be private and keep things to yourself, at least while you get back.
And yes, we know you are dying to share the excitement with everyone, but that is just bad for your security. You never know who’s listening and who’s reading your posts – and no, you’re not in Eastern Europe – we know.
We’ve talked a lot about CCTV related products, cameras and accessories. But there is so much more to it. The quality and value to the money of such products as DVR’s, NVR’s, fixed lens analog cameras as well as varifocal AHD cameras are also enormous and very popular among our customers.
There are various combinations of a fixed hard wired CCTV system which has long term recording capacity of 30, 60, 90 days. This depends on the size of the hard disk drive that we fit inside the DVR or NVR unit. In this case, all of the cameras get cabled back to a central location like an office or a secure room or for example an attic space in a domestic customer’s home. In this case, any thief cannot easily steal this black box DVR or NVR unit which has all the recorded footage from all cameras that can be set to record in a loop 24/7, 7 days a week for months at a time.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
For example, Outdoor Weatherproof CCTV Camera has a 1/3 Inch Color HDIS Sensor with 8mm varifocal lens for box-style HD CCTV cameras (AHD, HD-SDI, HD-TVI, and HD-CVI) and megapixel IP cameras that use CS lens mounts. This lens works with 720p and 1080p security cameras. The varifocal range gives surveillance system installers the ability to adjust the field of view and a zoom level of the camera.
The DS-2CE16D9T works with all our Hikvision DVRs have a night vision range of 120m IR Distance and 5-50mm motorized varifocal lens. So if you have a warehouse about 20 feet wide and 3 feet deep, the lens on the DS-2CE16D9T will be adjusted to the widest angle (2.8mm) which enables the camera to capture the entire area.

CTS Systems Satellite Installation is your true and reliable friend for all satellite related stuff – from new installs to replacing or repairing old existing satellite dishes. With us, you can also find all self-install equipment for the DIY installer who wants to fit the equipment their self.
You may not want to look around your house for suitable positions for the satellite dish? Our qualified and fully insured satellite dish installers will consult with you on site to consider the best and most suitable solution for you on the day. Therefore, he will be able to advice on which positions are both appropriate for reception and suitable for safely fixing the dish in place.
Today’s newer satellite dishes are smaller, and the technology has changed over the years, as well as the installation techniques. There’s no need to destroy your home or properties fine looks nowadays. Things are far cleaner and tidy looking with modern rust proof dishes. We have a solution and for those of you living near the sea or coastal areas where the salt in the sea air could rust out a standard satellite dish in as little as 12 months on some cases.
Depending on your property positioning, we can make it virtually vanish into its surroundings. Different and flexible fixing options mean that it can be placed in a wide range of positions on your home or in your garden.
Choosing the Site for Installation
When choosing the installation site, the first thing you need to do is to provide a clear “line of sight” to the satellite. There can be no obstruction between the dish and the satellite, like buildings, tree branches, or something bigger. So, if you want a clear signal, select an outdoor site with an unobstructed view of all corners of the World.
So, your dish must be positioned correctly. The exact direction that your antenna will have to be pointed is dependent upon your location.
Antenna must be pointed carefully to receive the satellite signal, so, if done correctly, your antenna will permit unimpeded satellite reception.
And for our regular DIY customers, here are a few tips how to position your dish:
Ensure that you are at an adequate distance away from any metal object that may give you a false compass indication. As you hold the compass, allow the compass needle to stop moving. Once it has stabilized, the arrow or red end of the compass needle should point toward the North.
Since 0 degrees on the compass denotes north you can now locate the compass azimuth bearing on the compass scale. You will probably note that the direction of the satellite, as indicated on the angle calculation or data sheet, is somewhat towards the South. That direction is the physical direction that the dish will have to be pointed.
When choosing the right positioning, consider the elevation angle of where you live. Keep in mind that 45 degrees is halfway between 0 degrees and the horizon while 90 degrees is straight up. If while looking in that direction, given both the compass azimuth and elevation for your location, you do not see any obstacles, that location should be adequate for the placement and installation of your dish-antenna.
Place your satellite receiver and television set close to the dish during the dish alignment procedure. But, if you face some difficulties, you may need a helpful person to relay information seen on the screen of the TV when the dish is being aligned. Do not turn the power on until all the cable connections have been made. Your television would have to be set to the channel you selected, in order for you to receive the programming. If the audio/video/SCART outputs are used, your television typically would need to be switched to the “video” input mode.
Now turn on your receiver and television. Use the on screen menu to locate the signal strength meter on your television.
Elevation – This is the satellite signal beam inclination that reaches the dish. It is measured in degrees. To adjust it, you must have a look at the numbers on the rear side of the dish. Make sure that its signal covers your area.
Polarization / LNB Skew – The polarization is the LNB rotation respect to ground. It is measured in degrees.
All this data depends on two factors:
- Your geographical location
- The position of the satellite you want to point to.

See what kind of cameras you could use along with your rugged smartphone
Rotating Zoom Farm Cameras – most of our rotating zoom PTZ Farm CCTV Cameras are HD, Digital, IP 66 waterproof/dustproof and have Led Night Vision. We have wired, wireless, with GSM, allowing you to view the site on your phone if required and are ideal for monitoring large farm sheds and calving pens.
HD PTZ Calving cameras and Rotating Zoom Pan Tilt Zoom Calving / Farm Cameras with 360-degree rotation are ideal for calving season and farmers can monitor sites on their TV, iPhone & Android mobile phone.
This makes them suitable for all uses, from outdoor CCTV surveillance to monitoring farms, cattle, and ewes in large sheds. All our systems can be made wireless with a PTZ wireless controller.
Things to check for in a rotating zoom camera
The main thing to ensure is that the camera is a full 360-degree camera and not a 355 or less (it is possible). In that case, you will need to keep turning the camera back on itself as it won’t do a full 360-degree movement. Also ensure that the camera should be 10 x zoom (optical zoom, not digital zoom) as this would be the standard requirement for a cattle shed.
Cameras with 3, 4 or 5-time zoom don’t have the range for a clear sight in the cattle shed. Also, ensure that the cameras are metal with a metal bracket. In plastic cameras, the glues and sealants that keep the camera together and make them waterproof and durable tend to lose their contact with the plastic and so the cameras tend to be damp and fogged up by the next cattle season. Also if the brackets are plastic then they tend to split sometimes when you are screwing them in with a drill.
A lot of things to check before pairing up your favorite rugged phone with some useful security camera kits, isn’t it? So, don’t be a stranger, read our latest news and stop by anytime!
