Whether it’s a burglar breaking into your home, a porch pirate snagging packages from your front step, or a shoplifter stealing items from your store, at one time or another, we’ve all probably been a target of theft. Yet, according to recent statistics, fewer than 30 percent of US households have a home security system. But that’s starting to change.
An increasing number of home and small business owners looking to protect their property and their loved ones are turning to video surveillance systems for peace of mind. That’s because technological advances are making these systems more accessible to customers with different needs and varying budgets. Whether it is general security of your family, monitoring the children in the yard, or recalling past recorded events, security cameras are a valuable solution to your security needs at home. For businesses, they can help monitor employee productivity, customer activity, preventing theft. Unlike closed-circuit tv and older systems, today’s video surveillance is cloud-based. So, whether you want to see what your dog’s up to while you’re at work or want to make sure your employees aren’t slacking on the job, you can check on your home or business right from your phone or another mobile device while you’re on the go.
Not only can video security systems help provide video evidence of a crime after the fact, but they are also statistically proven to be a crime deterrent. Between 2001 and 2005, researchers at Rutgers University studied crime data from the nearby Newark Police Department. According to security.org, the researchers concluded that not only did security systems help reduce crime at the protected house, but the entire neighborhood also became less enticing for burglars. In fact, 80 percent of burglars surveyed said they would check to see if their target had a security system before attempting to break in.
There are many options for video security solutions. However, a security camera system is only as good as the system design. Proper design is more important than ever with systems now featuring night-vision, remote viewing, and large storage DVR hard drives. Making sure you have the right system for your needs can be confusing. Using HikVision cutting-edge technology, Mulholland Audio Video‘s expert technicians can design the appropriate system for both commercial and residential customers.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created a lot of uncertainty for businesses and individuals alike. A Massachusetts stay-at-home order has left many employers scrambling to implement systems that will enable employees to work outside of the office. Deemed an essential business, Mulholland Audio Video can help bring some calm to the chaos.
Here’s how we can help all in Southern New England:
Create a Home Office
Many businesses have decided to go virtual while their employees have to stay at home. Mulholland Audio Video has the expertise to set up a home office that’s ready for this virtual reality.
In an era of social distancing, many companies and workers are taking their daily meetings online. So whether you want to connect with employees, co-workers or customers, we can help set up the systems needed for video conferencing.
Of course, if you’re going to be connecting with employees, co-workers or clients virtually – you’ll need a network that can handle the load. If connectivity is an issue, we can install WiFi or update your current system.
Install Surveillance Cameras
Whether you’re a business owner who wants to make sure it’s secure while you’re away or a homeowner who just wants peace of mind knowing their family and home are protected during these unsettled times, you may be considering installing a security system. However, a security camera system is only as good as the system design. Proper design is more important than ever with systems now featuring night-vision, remote viewing, and large storage DVR hard drives. Mulholland Audio Video can design and install a security camera system customized to your specifications.

Customer Service Tradition
Our story began decades ago in the 1950s. Just back from a tour in Korea, Sam Mulholland used his GI Bill benefit to attend what was then called Rhode Island Radio School in Providence. After years of attending school by day and working a job at night, Sam graduated and opened a small store on Broad Street in Providence. What would eventually become Mulholland Audio Video was born. Initially specializing in CB radio crystals and television antennas, Sam’s business evolved as technology advanced. With the advent of cable and satellite television, our video business continued to grow. In 1997, we expanded into the audio field as well.
Following in his dad’s footsteps, Jeff Mulholland took over as owner and president in 2013. From the time he was 7 years old, Jeff spent much of his free time on the trucks with Sam. Over the next several decades, Jeff learned everything he could from his dad – not only about the industry but also about running a customer-centric business.
While technology has changed dramatically since we incorporated in 1956, our commitment to customer service has never wavered. We have decades of experience helping people just like you customize projects both big and small. From the planning and consultation stages to installation and beyond, our technicians will be there every step of the way. We’re not satisfied unless you’re satisfied.
