Maintenance Workers And Your Property

October 10th, 2019

No matter what its focus is or what it involves, every building in Houston has one thing in common – eventually, they will need maintenance. Whether it’s general maintenance, serious repairs, or just minor custodial work, the fact is that your property will eventually need to be worked on by a trustworthy professional.

But that’s the key word here – trustworthy. Often, maintenance workers could pose a risk to your property – they could be careless and bring about potential lawsuits due to injury, or they could end up just being dishonest and stealing from your company. Either way, making sure your Houston property is fully protected is a must.

Luckily, there are a few steps that you can take that can help. Here are some of the main things to remember that can help ensure that you still have serious protection when maintenance workers are in the building.

One – Set Up Clear Goals And Expectations

A maintenance project can take a long time. You’ll need to start off every project by having a talk with the workers to see just what you need to expect in terms of a timeline. Ask things like the following:

  • Start date and end date
  • Hours that employees will be working and things like lunch break times
  • Spaces that they are allowed to work in and any areas that they can’t enter


Things like access control systems can allow you to set up clear parameters for maintenance workers and prevent them from entering certain areas – plus, can give you records of when they have entered different parts of the property.

Two – Monitor Spaces

Once you know where the maintenance workers will be, the next step is to make sure that you have eyes on the workers. No matter what your goal is, protecting your Houston property is a must. Video surveillance systems make it easy to monitor all areas of your property – especially those areas that maintenance workers will be completing work in.

Three – Promote Full Safety

Another factor? Making sure you take steps to fully protect your building even after the job is finished. Is your current security system up to snuff? Will it be protected if a worker returns after the job is over?

Additionally, think of factors including things like:

  • Monitored burglar, fire, and carbon monoxide detectors and alarms that will connect your building to remote monitoring services that will immediately dispatch help.


  • Energy management solutions that let you identify whether or not your property is efficient.


  • Mobile technology that links to your system and lets you check on the building, handle access control, watch security feeds, and more


The right tools and setups can make it easier to keep your property safe and protected when maintenance workers are on site.

"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!"
