Top 9 Tips to Optimize Your Premise Security

January 10th, 2019

Premise security in Houston, TX is an issue that shouldn't be taken for granted. Failure to plan for the security of your premise gives way to the possibility of encountering burglaries that can lead to property loss and unreasonable damage. Here are some of the top tips you can use to optimize your premise security.

1. If you own an automated gate, make sure that it is logically programmed to close at certain schedules. Besides that, always remember to keep a keen eye on the gate and ensure that it closes accordingly.

2. Regularly inspect your gate's track to confirm whether they could be a presence of obstructing particles such as leaves, lichen overgrowth, or other debris especially during rainy seasons. The presence of these particles may cause the gate to stop in its tracks, and this can make your home an easy target for burglary. Insist on having the particles removed if they are present.

3. Install ant-vandalism gadgets so that you can safeguard your gate motor from getting tampered with.

4. Install anti-gate gate crashing gadget on the driveway and have it linked to the alarm system. This will ensure that you get a proper alert if criminals are attempting to tamper with the gate.

5. Ever insist on a routine inspection of the anti-vandalism systems you may have installed in your Houston premise. Ensure that any damaged component gets to be fixed at the right time. During your routine inspections, make sure that dead insects or other debris are removed from the insulating materials so that the functionality of the anti-vandalism gadgets can be improved significantly. In incidences where an anti-vandalism gadget is damaged beyond repair, you must insist on having the necessary replacements without too much delay.

6. If you have safeguarded your premise with electric fence, insist on removing encroaching vegetation so that you can prevent incidences of false alarms. Remember, foliage getting in contact with an electric fence can lead to short circuits and reduce the overall effectiveness of the fence.

7. Ever ensure that the electric fence wires are tensioned accordingly. Besides, you must make sure that the fence is earthed as required so that the battery doesn't drain at an unreasonably faster rate.

8. Install secure and reliable lighting systems that reduce dark areas in your premise. Remember, burglars do take advantage of the dark spots to have unwanted access to premises. If your premise is served with municipal lights and it happens that they encounter some damage, always ensure that you report such incidences at the right time so that necessary fix can be applied.

9. Clear any vegetation that could potentially act as hiding grounds for burglars who wish to gain unauthorized entry to your premise

You must insist on consistently following and applying the tips. Applying some of the tips and not acting on the others is considered not a wise decision since that can create loopholes that can be exploited by burglars. In instances where you may not be better placed to routine follow the tips, you can hire reputable security professionals in Houston, TX to the inspections and routine checks to ensure that your premise gets to have the security it needs.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
