You’ve most likely heard of Charles Dickens’ novel “A Tale of Two Cities”.  Well, when it comes to crime, the need for security and overall quality of life, Nashua, NH tells two tales of one city.

New Hampshire’s second largest city boasts being named America’s best place to live by Money magazine—more than once in fact.  In those reports, it was described as “safe”.  And for the most part, most people will agree.

Nashua has a clean downtown, nice parks and many quiet neighborhoods.  Although there are a couple areas of town that some will describe as not the safest.

But the “two tales of one city” aspect mentioned in the opening paragraph has to do with the conflicting sentiment of Money magazine calling it safe and, for instance, giving the following statistics. states that overall crime in Nashua has risen over the past four years and is projected to be higher in 2012 than it was in 2010.  Crime in Nashua, property crime for one, is higher than it is in New Hampshire as a whole.  It is however, lower than the national average.

So the question becomes, do you need a security system in Nashua, NH?  If you live in what you consider a “nice part of town”, you may have a false sense of security.

With overall crime rising in Nashua recently according to, thieves don’t have far to travel to get to your “nice” neighborhood.  Who’s to say that thieves don’t live in your neighborhood?  Also, the Everett Turnpike runs right through the city and being near a highway increases the rate of crime in that area no matter where you are.

At the very least, if you decide to equip your home with an alarm system in Nashua or anywhere, you should have some fundamental components.

These include the security panel of course, the keypad, door and window contacts, motion detectors, smoke alarms and please consider carbon monoxide detectors.  There are many other devices to consider—these are just the basics.

In fact, video surveillance can be set up at your home at very reasonable prices nowadays--even remote video monitoring.  Please read our last blog article and view the attched video for reasons why you might want to install video surveillance in your Nashua home or residence in any town for that matter.  The homeowner in the video was sure glad he had home video surveillance!

We're continuing on with the fourth mistake in our series of "10 security mistakes that businesses make and how to prevent them".  (There's a free download on our website if you'd like access to them all at once!)  Number three, the last post from this list, discussed the tendency for some to not use security since they believe they have nothing of value to be stolen.

Depicted above are several security systems which can be integrated.

In this post, we're going to discuss the mistake of not leveraging the technology that permits you to integrate your various security systems.

 If you're going to have a CCTV system installed, or added onto, make sure to have it "talk" to your access control system, for instance. 

That pan, tilt and zoom security camera that you have positioned at the main entrance can actually adjust itself (automatically) to capture the faces of people as they enter.  You don't have to count on a guard or other personnel to operate the camera.  Once someone swipes an access card, if your access control system and video surveillance systems are integrated, the camera will pan on its own to record the entering person.

This can be facilitated by using a serial interface which connects the CCTV system to the access control system--please contact your security company in NH, MA or other areas for more details.

And as for having your CCTV system "talk" to your smart phone or computer so you can take advantage of remote video monitoring, please see our last blog post titled "Business Remote Video Monitoring in NH, MA and Beyond".
