Nothing is more annoying than rushing from office to your home and finding out that the alarm alert that you just received is a False one! After all when it comes to your Home protection, you would want to take each alarm as seriously.

2) Connection to the Sensors are loose- The loose connection at the control panel end or the device end can also result in a false alarm. The sensor, magnetic switches should also be of a good quality.

How to differentiate between genuine and fake notes.

Everybody knows the "Importance Of Money" in today's life. A lot of fake notes have come into market. Terrorists and criminals are manufacturing such notes very intelligently. Common man should know how to identify a fake note.Look at all your notes carefully before taking it from the ATM or receiving it from another person, even if he is a trusted person because fake notes are increasing. We are providing you the information so that next time you receive a note you can easily differentiate between a genuine note and a fake note.

1 In a fake note the security thread that passes through the note is tampered and is broken in between whereas in a genuine note the thread is visible in a straight line. It contains the words "Bharat" in the Devanagri script and "RBI" appearing alternately.

2 The number panel of the notes are printed in fluorescent ink and are of standard size (if a number mentioned on the top right hand corner of the note varies in size, then it is a forged note).

3 The `micro-lettering' technology used in the printing of a note provides additional security to the notes against counterfeiting. Micro-printing like "RBI 100" is printed that can be seen using magnifying glass.

4 Braille Mark -- An identification mark has been introduced in the new series note for visually impaired people. This mark is in intaglio printing and it has different geometrical shapes for various denomination. For Rs 100 denomination, we have triangle as the identification mark.

5 The image of Mahatma Gandhi on the left side of the currency note is printed exactly the same like the one printed on the right hand side of the note. When the note is put underneath a bulb or looked up in the natural light, the image of Mahatma Gandhi on the left side of the note becomes clearly visible.

6 When the currency note is placed under the Ultra violet lamp it one can see the image of twinkling stars.

7 The fluorescent ink used in the printing of the currency note is water and soap resistant and dries quickly on getting wet.

8 The printing of a currency note has distinct and vivid colours.

9 The watermark in new currency note depicts Mahatma Gandhi, visible from both front and back in transmitted light. Cannot be replicated using scanning or photocopy equipments.

10 The portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, Reserve Bank Seal, guarantee and promise clause, Ashoka pillar emblems on the left, RBI governor`s signature are printed in intaglio, that is in raised prints. (IMP)

11 I, J, O, X, Y, Z alphabets are not used in alphabet series on any note.
12 In 2005 series, on the reverse side of the notes, the year of printing is mentioned at the centre bottom.

LATENT IMAGE : There is a vertical band on the right side of Mahatma Gandhi's portrait which contains the image of the notes denomination. The image appears only when light is allowed to fall at an angle of 45 degrees on the note, otherwise it appears as a vertical band.

MICROLETTERINGS: This appears between the vertical band and the portrait. It can only be seen better through a magnifying glass. For Rs 10 notes, it contains the word "RBI". Notes of Rs 20 and above contain the denomination value of the note.

IDENTIFICATION MARK: On all notes except Rs 10, there is a special intaglio feature on the left of the water-mark specially for the visually impaired. This feature varies according to the denomination of the note. They are: Rs 20: Vertical Rectangle, Rs 50: Square, Rs 100: Triangle, Rs 500: Circle, Rs 1000: Diamond.

INTAGLIO PRINTING: In notes of Rs 20 and above, the Gandhi portrait, RBI Seal, guarantee, promise clause, Ashoka Pillar emblem, and the governor's signature are printed in intaglio or raised print.

FLUORESCENCE: The number panels are printed in fluorescent ink. The notes have also optical fibres which can only be seen when exposed to a ultra-violet lamp.

OPTICALLY VARIABLE INK: The numerals of the Rs 500 (revised colour scheme of milk yellow, mauve and brown) and Rs 1000 notes is printed in optically variable ink (a colour shifting ink). The colour of the numerals on the note is green when held flat but will turn blue when the note is held at an angle.

How to insure 'On campus security' for SMB/SME (small/mid-sized business firm)

Larger businesses have more resources to guard their premises, Making Small businesses more vulnerable to intrusion and robbery. Therefore, Small businesses should plan and execute there security measures properly. The Security concerns for small businesses would depend on kind of business they are engaged in. A software development firm may want to guard their important data even from its employees. A SM Company might want to guard their valuable commodities like jewelery from theft. Some would want to monitor their godowns and storage. Production and manufacturing unit may want to screen Personals for a possible theft of raw materials etc.
The advancement in the technology have evolved over the years by understanding the needs and threats for organizations. A business owner (out of ignorance or cutting expenses) should not compromise on Security of their organizations. In a broader picture, a properly implemented security system will reduce cost of man guarding and prevent losses by raw material theft, robberies, secret leak etc.
These are the prime areas of implementing a security system-
1) Premises- You may need fencing, site surveillance CCTV, patrolling guards, etc.
2) Entrances and exits- You may need to monitoring exits or entrances with CCTV. Install metal detectors or door alarms.
3) Authorized Entry- An access control system for employees according to hierarchy levels. Issuing of access control cards will also help in attendance at main entrances.
4) screening- at production units, where the employees handle raw material.
5) Response method- installing security or fire alarms, emergency security dialer which can automatically call and inform 10 telephones numbers when the alarm is triggered.

How to use a Hand held Metal detector

Operating a metal detector is simple. Once you turn the unit on, you move slowly over the area you wish to search. In most cases, you sweep the coil (search head) back and forth over the ground in front of you. When you pass it over a target object, an audible signal occurs. More advanced metal detectors provide displays that pinpoint the type of metal it has detected and how deep in the ground the target object is located.

How to make your home safer?

Posh areas of Delhi are considerably under spotlight. This time because of a increase in house robberies. According to Indian express article-

``There are three kinds of areas that are prone to robberies in Delhi,'' an officer at the Lajpat Nagar Police Station told Express Newsline. ``Places like Neeti Bagh and Gulmohar Park in South Delhi where the well-off live; places that are well-connected to the Ring Road as it is easy for the robbers to get away with the loot; And finally, places that are not well-lit.''

Commenting on the situation in northwest Delhi, DCP (north-west) Satyendra Garg says: ``It is a border district and therefore more prone to robberies. Investigations have revealed that most of these robberies have been committed either by novices or by gangs based in Haryana. Many of the robbers are dhobis or drivers: They are not starving, but think they will make a quick buck by robbing people.''

Statistics available at PHQ reveal that robberies have been the largest contributor to the 12 per cent increase in crime since the beginning of this year as compared to the whole of last year: 364 cases of robbery were reported till June 30.

While 46 cases were registered in June, at least 31 were registered during this months till yesterday.

Question to deal with is - IS YOUR HOME SAFE?
The more important aspect is to educate oneself of the right security systems for your home. A security system has following components-

The input devices ( which trigger the alarm)
The output devices( which communicate the alarm like speakers)
The Control panel( networks between the devices and is a interaface for user)

The following weeks we will discuss the functioning of these devices and factors one should consider while choosing an alarm system
