Safety does not come with compromises

A higher purpose for our society's safety - Millions of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras are installed in streets and businesses throughout the world with the stated goal of reducing crime and increasing public safety. CCTV cameras also have the potential of creating unintended effects, good and bad. The “halo effect” refers to the potential for greater security in areas outside the view of cameras. Referring to the security of our locality which also attracts thiefs, bugglars and other low level crimes which could be easily fought with the help of cctv vigilance.

Before we initiate the implementation, there are a set of principles and tools to ensure that citizens’ rights are respected with CCTV systems. These include -

Necessity: The use of camera systems must be justified empirically, Objectives and intended outcomes must be defined.

Proportionality: CCTV equipment must be appropriate for the problem it is intended to address. Data should be protected and the length of time it is retained be clearly defined.

Transparency: Citizens should know what the objectives of a CCTV system are, what its installation and operational costs are, the areas being surveyed, and what the results are.

Accountability: Those in charge of public CCTV systems should be clearly identified and accountable to the public, whether the systems are run by the government or private firms.

Independent oversight: An external body should be charged with ensuring that systems respect the public’s rights and are achieving their stated objectives.

To summarize Yes, public interest and safety along with surveillance cameras are here to stay. We need to draw definition of a public camera for public interest and intention must be addressed quickly. At the end safety does not come with compromises.

Importance of Family

A family is a unit that gives an individual an identity. It molds the individuals to become a better people 

in life. A family is a system that binds everyone together through thick and thin. Thus, it completes an 

individual in lot of ways. For example, its a mutual long - lasting bond that holds everyone together no 

matter what.A close family is like a safe harbor, where one feels secure.  It is through a family that one 

learns the values of love, trust, hope, beliefs, cultures, morals, etc. Therefore, a  strong foundation of 

any individual is an outcome of a supportive  trustworthy family.

Being part of a blessed prosperous family is one of the greatest gifts that one can get in life.Usually, 

people who have a weak  family base, end up in troubles and loneliness. A child who does not feel loved 

or cared, always end up being  on the wrong path. Even at that point, there is no one to advise and 

guide him or her. The absence of a family is like a vacuum,as there is nothing that could fill it or become 

a substitute for it.



 Parents always want the best for their children. They strive to help them grow and thrive. Thus, a large 

part of their work is to protect their children from getting hurt because the safety of a child is a worry 

that never disappears from the minds of the parents. The task of keeping a child safe is a full-time 

job.But, in spite of the care and best efforts by parents and others to keep a child safe, danger 

sometimes threatens. This danger may come from outside the family, as an earthquake, flood, tornado, 

or school shooting, etc or it may come from within the family, like violence among the family members, 

robbery, etc.

Hence, Parents should provide a protective shield in the form of love and care to their children to ensure 

their safety as it will help their children to share their problems and grievances easily with them so that 

it can lead to a positive outcome.Parents should always monitor and keep an eye on their children's 

behavior. If they notice any kind of change in their child' s behavior and mannerisms they should 

immediately take it seriously and do something about the same.

So, it is not only parents who wants to ensure their children's safety and well- being. But, everyone who 

care about their loved ones want them to be safe always. They want them to be alert and stay safe in 

this vast cruel world.

Fire Safety


Life in the contemporary world is extremely hectic and full of strain. When it comes to the national capital this severity reaches an unprecedented magnitude. From working long hours to travelling large distances every day on an average. However the city is rewarding in nature as it has a high per capita income of Rs 2.41 lacks. This acts as a catalyst to a busy lifestyle. Delhiites work long hours every day so as to get that extra reward so as to fulfill their desires. Be it working hard in the heat so as to get that dream Air conditioner for their household or skipping a multiplex appointment so as to get that dream LED. Delhiites spend a lot on embellishing their homes with expensive gadgets and appliances so as to get ultimate comfort and leisure. Be it expensive carpets decorative items or furniture Delhiite’s leave no stone unturned when it comes to their houses. However when it comes to fire safety all this dedication takes a backseat as people are in their long sleep of ignorance to this issue. Delhiites don’t realize that all their efforts and their dream household can be destroyed in minutes if no attention is paid to fire safety. With around 62 fire incidents in the capital on a daily basis as per records of 2012

Its high time people realize that all their effort could be in flames and their home may be destroyed if fire safety measures are not inculcated properly. Fire safety is a cheap and effective insurance for your house and your loved ones. You never know when you can be one of those sixty-two fire instances.
So why take a chance spend a little on fire safety and add a layer of protection to your home and your life.

Respecting our Teachers




"Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or self confidence."

These were the words by one of the greatest scholars of philosophy and religion, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.

Not only was Dr. Radhakrishnan the first vice President and second President of India and a Bharat Ratna Recipient but also one of the most acclaimed teachers to have ever lived, in India.

This great mind always suggested others how in place of celebrating his birthday, he wanted 5th September to be observed as Teachers' day.
We often underestimate the underlying principle of education. Our life is immensely affected by the education that we have acquired along with the level of education our society. Education is what builds our country's economy, makes us productive, gives a sense of purpose, provides knowledge, gives us personality, sustains our living and globalizes and advances the world.




Teachers are the ones who give us the ultimate gift of education. Years of efforts are passed on to future generations. Our future, our development, everything is determined on the education of our nation. Such citizens are the heroes of our country, the ones who furnish the building blocks of our nation. We should always acknowledge the role of teachers, even when we are done with our education. Teachers deserve respect and this is the fundamental reason to celebrate 5th September as teachers' day.
So on this very special occasion, an occasion to express our gratitude to our gurus, our teachers, the ones who have given us the biggest gift- Education, we should all honor this day to appreciate and thank our teachers for having motivated us to excel and for having held our hands towards success.

Let's celebrate this day by taking a moment to appreciate those who have smilingly shaped us to the way we are today.

Women Security

Even in contemporary India, women cannot stride out of their houses at any given phase, assured of their physical and sexual safety. Everyday women in the society face added problems than men.

img_6306-0.jpg (500×303)



The fear of violence and teasing hampers a woman’s anatomy, shortens her mobility and her ability to work and participate in social activities. Even today, women cannot move out not in secluded places and even at daytime in crowded places.

Hundreds and thousands of incidents of physical / sexual abuse and culturally justified violence happens every day to women in this country.

Women today are not even safe at their homes as on many occasions distant or even close relatives are involved in their molestation and harassment. The conservative and patriarchal society has not helped matters. Crimes are even on the rise even against girls.

The poor state of women security is earning a bad name for the nation overseas . However certain small yet significant steps can go a long way in bringing about a considerable change in the situation. Spreading awareness among women about their rights and how to manage a crisis situation effectively and efficiently is the key.

Women-Safety-Apps.jpg (315×236)


A number of apps such as Delhi Police’s Himmat app and pepper spray along with self defense training are enough to manage such situations. However having surveillance in public places and in secluded or lonely places can be instrumental in not just controlling such threats but also act as an evidence against the offender and would come in handy in his identification and in imposing punishment . Thus they can act both as preserver as well as a destroyer. It is high time we stop talking and start acting on this issue .

Metal Detectors

Metal detectors use electromagnetic fields to detect the presence of metallic objects. They exist in a variety of walk-through, hand-held, and vehicle-mounted models and are used to search personnel for hidden metallic objects at entrances to airports, public schools, courthouses, and other guarded spaces; to hunt for landmines, archaeological artifacts, and miscellaneous valuables; and for the detection of hidden or unwanted metallic objects in industry and construction. Metal detectors detect metallic objects, but do not image them. An x-ray baggage scanner, for example, is not classed as a metal detector because it images metallic objects rather than merely detecting their presence.

Metal detectors use electromagnetism in two fundamentally different ways, active and passive. Active detection methods illuminate some detection space—the opening of a walk-through portal, for example, or the space directly in front of a hand-held unit—with a time-varying electromagnetic field. Energy reflected from or passing through the detection space is affected by the presence of conductive material in that space; the detector detects metal by measuring these effects. Passive detection methods do not illuminate the detection space, but take advantage of the fact that every shielded detection space is already permeated by the Earth's natural magnetic field.

Walk-through metal detectors - Walk-through or portal detectors are common in airports, public buildings, and military installations. Their portals are bracketed with two large coils or loop-type antennae, one a source and the other a detector. Electromagnetic waves (in this case, low-frequency radio waves) are emitted by the source coil into the detection space. When the electromagnetic field of the transmitted wave impinges on a conducting object, it induces transient currents on the surface of the object; these currents, in turn, radiate electromagnetic waves. These secondary waves are sensed by the detector coil.

Hand-carried metal detectors - Metal detectors small enough to be hand-held are often used at security checkpoints to localize metal objects whose presence has been detected by a walk-through system. Some units are designed to be carried by a pedestrian scanning for metal objects in the ground (e.g., nails, loose change, landmines). All such devices operate on variations of the same physical principle as the walk-through metal detector, that is, they emit time-varying electromagnetic fields and listen for waves coming back from conducting objects. Some ground-search models further analyze the returned fields to distinguish various common metals from each other. Hand-carried metal detectors have long been used to search for landmines; however, modern landmines are often made largely of plastic to avoid this cheap and obvious counter-measure. New technologies, especially neutron activation analysis and ground-penetrating radar, are being developed to search for nonmetallic landmines.

Protect your Vehicle with Surveillance Cameras

                                   374691-vehicletheft-1336264928-858-640x480.jpg (640×480)

1.51 lakh vehicles were stolen in 2011  in India
1.54 lakh vehicles were  stolen in 2012 in India
1. 65 lakh vehicles were stolen in 2013 in India


On an average, three vehicles are lifted in different parts of Delhi every one hour.
While on an average 1,343 vehicles are registered in the Capital every day, 70 two- or -four wheeler are stolen daily.
On an average, three vehicles are lifted in different parts of Delhi every one hour.


Car stereo sets, car brand emblems and other accessories are in huge demand in Mumbai’s grey market. The music systems are usually sold in Kurla’s Chor Bazaar while the emblems are sold both at the Chor Bazaar as well as in some garages in Kalina and Kurla.
Delhi  is apparently referred to as the ‘one-way godown’ among car thieves.  Behind every stolen car lies a huge network of the inter-state gangs, operating in seven to eight well-organised modules.


The number of car thefts is increasing and is certainly a matter of concern.  Bring in new technology to halt incidents of vehicle theft.  Step up vigil across to curb vehicle theft incidents.
Build a strong CCTV network
PROTECT YOUR VEHICLES FROM THIEVES

Is your Child Safe?

Children are the flowers whose cologne makes not just your house but the world such a pleasant and joyful place. However crimes against children is on the rise . As per NCRB there is a constant and steep increase in the crimes against children . Around 60000 children go missing every year and only a small fraction of them are ever traced. The situation is even worse when it comes to the metropolitan  cities .Many kids are forced into child labour, flesh traded and even prostitution . 

Primary reason for the poor state in the big cities is that the parents are forced to leave their children alone for their work. However a majority of crimes against children can be avoided with simple precautions. Surveillance of the house and it’s entrances can be instrumental in preventing suspicious and dangerous people from entering your house . With the help of this technique children can easily spot unwanted guests and can alert their parents and guardians when the children are alone . Installing door gate operators will further ensure that no stranger can exploit the situation wherein outdated and week locks are present on the gates which can be easily opened with hardly any effort . 

                                     

Installation of alarms is also a great option as it would alert the entire neighborhood in case of unauthorized access to your house which can be extremely helpful in such circumstance .To sum up our societies and localities are facing a big threat and when the safety of your children is at stake it leaves no room for being ignorant .Its high time that we wake up from our long sleep of ignorance towards this issue else it would reach our homes and our children .

Leave the safety of your house and children to us and stay relaxed and safe.

Security Concerns for 15th August

The general level of safety in India varies. There are ongoing issues related to violence and terrorism. The threat of terrorism in India remains a concern. Waking up to another day is a blessing, so don’t take it for granted. What do you feel? Are you protected???

As 15th August holds great importance in India. It was on this day in 1947 that India became independent. On this day our first Prime Minister, Pandit 

Jawaharlal Nehru, unfurled the National Flag at the Red Fort for the first time .On this day we take a pledge to defend our freedom with all our might. But are we really free in today’s time??

Days ahead of the Independence Day celebrations on August 15, the Union home ministry has issued a massive security alert to all states of possible terror attacks, with special focus on Delhi, Mumbai, and the border states of Jammu & Kashmir and Gujarat.

In Delhi, people celebrate this day with great enthusiasm. As there is a public holiday so they move into the city with their families enjoying the auspicious day. On one hand there is an increased security on such days whereas on other hand there seems to be more chances of danger and threats to the public. 

Security has, however, stepped up in major cities, especially at government buildings, hotels, sports venues, transport hubs and places of worship. The innocents are targeted mostly in public areas. So safety should be the major concern during this time. 

One should be alert while moving onto the roads, whether using private or public transport; people should keep a close and alert watch on their surroundings.

As life is too short to live unsafe, CINT provides you the solution to your security by giving you the surveillance high quality cameras, alarm systems, detectors & scanners and other safety products.

Everyone has a hand in safety, so let’s work together to keep the injuries and threats away from your place because the safe way is the best way.

Eagle ­Eye

We all want a guardian angel in our home, business or factory. A guardian angel to watch over and protect what we have. But sometimes, we have to be our own guardian angel. In the modern era, mankind has reached great heights. Come what may, with technology we are now able to get a good night's sleep.
                                       
                                   homeSlider3.jpg (1300×867)

CCTV cameras are today's guardian angels. They watch over us and protect us, having the capability to sense a danger way before it has a chance to affect us. These days, it has become a necessity for all buildings and structures to have at least some security, to provide surveillance, installed. We see surveillance security installations pretty much everywhere, be it malls, residences, stores, or roads. Surveillance provides safety for us and our loved ones, wherever and whenever.

CINT provides AHD cameras which are the future of security. If you have these, you are sure to be well protected and secure.

The link below shows our top ­edge equipment, you should surely check it out.

The individual has a right to privacy!



Security cameras have become ubiquitous in many countries. Whereas before they appeared only in banks and at high-security areas, they are now entering public places such as malls, streets, stadiums and transport. Many people feel this affects their privacy. This essay will examine whether the advantages of these cameras outweigh their negative impact.

Surveillance cameras have several benefits. An obvious benefit is that the police can catch criminals in the act, thus reducing crime. This will make the streets safer for ordinary people. A more important point is that criminals, particularly young offenders or petty criminals will be deterred. They will not be tempted to carry out crimes, and thus society will be a lot safer. Cameras are also cost-effective and unobtrusive. Authorities do not need to spend large amounts of money on police.

surveillance-camera.jpg (640×411)

However, security cameras are far from being a perfect solution. The biggest objection concerns privacy. Many people feel that they should be free to travel or move around a shop, mall, street or country without being photographed or recorded. They feel that being watched constantly is like being in a jail, and that ordinary people are losing their freedom because of these devices. Another point is that although the police say that only criminals have something to fear from the cameras, many people do not trust governments with too much information. Corrupt authorities could use information in the wrong way or twist it to victimize some groups. Thirdly, cameras and computers can make mistakes.

In conclusion, although there are definite advantages to using surveillance devices such as cameras, we need to balance the need for security with respect for the individual’s privacy and freedom.
