Cruise Line Security Keeps Passengers Safe

October 1st, 2019

There are many businesses in Houston, TX that use security cameras to protect their investments. Though cruise ships are not often the first business that one thinks of when it comes to security, they have a unique need for protection. The fact that they contain restaurants, shops, entertainment, and sleeping quarters makes them almost like a small floating village. Keeping an eye on everything that happens is essential to providing everyone on board with a safe and secure journey. This is why a security camera system can be so important to good business. 

4 Benefits Of A Security Camera System 

  • They help prevent crime. Security cameras help deter crime. When a criminal knows they are being watched, they are less likely to engage in malevolent activity. In cases where crimes have been committed, cruise ships with security cameras in place were able to capture the crime in action. This helped law enforcement officials solve the crimes.
  • They capture evidence. When an event takes place, such as a crime or an injury, security cameras capture the event. This can be monumental in providing evidence when a lawsuit occurs.
  • They can help fight terroristic acts. Cruise ships can go a long way from Houston, TX. When they float out into international waters, they can be accessed by anyone from any country. This makes them an easy target for terrorism. Security cameras can monitor the potential for danger.
  • They monitor staff. There is always the potential that an employee can do something they’re not supposed to do. When an area that is so large, and so many people are on board, you can’t always watch over every employee. Security cameras allow you to view everything that happens on the ship from one central location.

Ready For Protection

Are these benefits enough to convince you of the importance of a cruise ship surveillance system? If so, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind. For example, if your security guards already monitor specific areas of the ship, installing a security camera in these areas would be redundant. Concentrate on areas that are not already monitored. In addition, remember these important tips. 

4 Important Things To Consider  

  • Any area where money exchanges hands needs surveillance. Keep an eye on casino and gambling areas, cocktail bars, and dining rooms.
  • Is there a specific area on the cruise ship that is more prevalent for accidents and injuries? Think about places like the slippery pool deck or stairwells.
  • If there are areas on your ship where cameras could easily be tampered with or vandalized, install them high out of reach. You could also consider tamper-proof models.
  • Respect the privacy of your passengers. Never put cameras in bathrooms, bedrooms, locker rooms, or other areas where privacy is important.

"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!"
