The technology could revolutionize healthcare, security, gaming, imaging, and many other industries. However, it could present many privacy issues as the technology can monitor people’s movements through walls without their knowledge or consent.

However, some people feel like the setbacks of living in a gated community are far more than the perceived benefits.

Ridgewood NJ, recent surveys reveal that 58% of Americans have been burgled, yet only 32% own home security systems.

Ooma Home [https://www.ooma.com/home-security/]— an innovative home security and monitoring platform, and creators of the Ooma Butterfleye security camera [https://www.ooma.com/home-security/butterfleye-security-camera/] — surveyed 1,000 Americans about their home security successes, woes, and desires.

Here’s what their response revealed:
24/7 live-streaming is America’s #1 most-wanted smart security feature at 58%: When asked what smart security features they desire most, 45% of those surveyed said advanced facial recognition features, while another 42% said automatic arming and disarming of the system as family members leave and come home.
25% of Americans have canceled a vacation due to home security concerns: 61% of respondents said they worry most about their residence being burgled whenever they are away rather than when they’re at home, and 38% said they worry about their pets being left alone.
33% of Americans who own home security systems have been burgled: When asked what could have put their house at risk, 55% said human error (e.g., their system doesn’t arm automatically). A smaller 33% say that their security camera didn’t notify them of the intrusion—inhibiting them from responding quickly.
The Ooma Butterfleye security camera provides 24/7 HD live-streaming, allowing owners to check-in on their homes from anywhere in their world from their mobile devices. It boasts numerous smart features, including facial recognition, offline recording during outages, and automatic arming and disarming.

AeroScout RTLS Helps The Valley Hospital’s Staff Feel Safer

valley_hospital_theridgewoodblog

The Stanley Healthcare solution includes Wi-Fi RFID badges that nurses, physicians and other personnel can use to identify their locations and call for assistance.
By Claire Swedberg

Sep 27, 2016—

The Valley Hospital, in Ridgewood, N.J., has been using a real-time location system (RTLS) to monitor the locations and identities of staff members who press their emergency badge. Before the hospital deployed the system, only 50 percent of personnel reported a sense of workplace safety. Once those workers began utilizing the RTLS, provided byStanley Healthcare, that figure rose to 85 percent.

The Valley Hospital rarely experiences violence in its ER, but there have been incidents in which employees have indicated feeling uncomfortable, the hospital reports. After members of a patient’s family prevented a nurse from leaving that patient’s room, that nurse asked the hospital to institute a better means of protecting personnel. The facility, which treats 74,000 patients in its emergency department each year, already offered wired emergency alarms in each room, but it decided that a wireless system would provide greater support to employees wherever they were in that department. The solution consists of Stanley Healthcare Wi-Fi-enabled call badges and software that helps security personnel identify who has placed a distress call, as well as where that person is located and what he or she looks like.

North Jersey churches wary of too much security

THE RECORD

For as long as Mack Cauthen could remember, Bible study at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Englewood has always been open to not only members of the congregation, but anyone who is interested in learning and sharing their experiences.

But a day after nine people were killed during a prayer meeting at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C., Cauthen, a church deacon, and other North Jersey religious leaders were grappling with how to continue the church’s mission to welcome and attract new members while keeping their congregations safe.

“We are trying to reach as many people as possible to join us and to learn, but at the same time what do you do?” Cauthen asked. “Try and restrict people, and who is the judge?”

The Rev. Melanie Miller of the AME Zion Church in Hackensack said the shooting will compel churches to discuss what security measures can be instituted, while balancing the religious needs of the community.

“When things like this happen it not only instills fear, but at the same time we have to reach out to anyone who may feel isolated,” she said
