Can A Security System Help Curb Workplace Violence?

July 8th, 2019



Security systems are useful for a range of different things. For one, in a Houston home or office setting, the devices can be useful for deterring burglars and stopping break-ins. They can also be helpful to parents for keeping an eye on their kids while they are still at work. After all, most households can't make it in the modern world without both guardians working full time. Even then, sometimes, it is hard for them to make end's meet. So, although mom and dad can't be on site 24/7, cameras assist them in seeing if the children are misbehaving or if an intruder is on the premises.

Meanwhile, kiddos are not the only ones that need to be looked after. Employees can experience violence, threats, and more on the job. Research reveals that an average of 2 million United States workers, yes, including those right here in Houston, will become a victim to some type of incident in this year alone. The altercations can be random acts of violence, crimes that take place at the hands of unknown assailants, or offenses between co-workers. Those most at risk include but are not limited to...

  • Employees That Work Late Or Early Morning Shifts

  • Agents That Are Employed By Organizations In High Crime Areas

  • Individuals That Exchange Money Such As Cashiers

  • Retail, Social, And Healthcare Workers

Today's Employers Must Go Above And Beyond To Protect Their Representatives

There are many different methods available for accomplishing this feat, but sitting back and doing nothing is not one of them. Instead, Houston business owners should consider installing exceptional light fixtures by entrances and exits, as well as, back alleys and sporadically throughout the parking lot. In brightening up these normally dark locations, criminals will have fewer places to hide. Therefore, they will likely avoid acting inappropriately for fear of being caught. In turn, your employees will feel safe coming to and leaving work, which means they will probably remain loyal companions for years to come.

Video Surveillance Can Help With Internal And External Threats

On many occasions, security cameras along with signs and stickers stating that the premises is being monitored is enough to discourage trespassers. However, should they decide to break-in to steal money, goods, or customer information anyway, the devices will capture their attempts in crystal clear resolution. Then, the evidence can be turned over to the police to identify the suspects and bring them to justice. Employee theft, bullying, and sexual advances are internal issues that employers must deal with daily. Much like with the burglars, workers that know someone could be watching their every move will be less inclined to participate in inappropriate workplace behaviors.

Plus, management will have the instances that do occur caught on video. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so the proof can nip he said/she said arguments in the bud. With the evidence in hand, organizational leaders have the data that they need to punish the guilty party.

Invest In A Burglar Alarm

Windows and doors become fitted with sensors with a burglar alarm. It is one of the simplest devices to send criminals running in the opposite direction. If an entrance is breached, a loud, blaring alarm will sound, making them wish they hadn't touched the building. Should that fail to do the trick, the system also notifies the police, which means they will arrive on the scene quickly.

"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.

"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!"
