Do You Have Sufficient Business Security In Place?

March 27th, 2019



When you’re in charge of a business, there are numerous elements that you’ll need to keep up with. One that is easy to overlook is your security, and it’s vital that when you’re overseeing a Houston business that you make sure you have sufficient security in place. But just what suggests that your security isn’t sufficient? There are several things to consider here.

Costs

Weight the costs of each type of security. For instance, a 24 hour security guard will generally cost more than a security camera system that operates around the clock. Alarm systems, remote monitoring, and other additional fees will all need to be considered as well. But, the main thing to bear in mind is that you should work on striking a fine balance between what you’re spending and what you will get from the system. In other words, invest in a good value that provides results. If you skimped on your initial security system, you may need to consider upgrading.

The Type of Business You Run

Each type of business has its own unique risks. For instance, retail shops and stores generally need to prevent shoplifting, employee theft, and similar issues. High cash turnover businesses are more likely to face threats to their actual cash, and steps like safes or access control can add security to these factors and keep the business safer.

The Past

Another thing to consider is just what kind of history you have in terms of previous break-ins, thefts, and so on. Consider the previous security breaches your business may have faced including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Employee fraud
  • Employee theft
  • Online hacks or digital breaches
  • Break ins
  • Robberies

Consider each of your previous security breaches and you’ll be able to identify areas that you need to focus your attention on when upgrading or modifying your security systems. You’ll likely see numerous weak points that can be upgraded.

Types Of Protection

And of course, you’ll actually have to consider the kind of protection you already have in place and whether or not it’s been working for you. For instance, you may have cameras and access control in place. But are they reducing crimes or stopping theft? Or do you need to take additional steps to fully protect your business? Think about what your success is so far and what needs to happen to improve it.

Personal Needs

What will it take to give you peace of mind? Do you need real cameras with high definition capabilities? Or are fake systems enough to keep you calm? Think about how your system is working now and then consider what you really want from it. This can make it easier to get the results you need.

The Bottom Line

It’s important for any Houston business owner to consider their current setup and then think about what is working and what isn’t. It’s likely that you can spot some weakness and some areas that you can improve on. If you have doubts, talking to a security expert will be able to help give you solutions that you can count on to improve your security.

"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!"
