Security Solutions to Protect Your Business

March 1st, 2019



If you are a business owner in Houston TX, then you are very aware of how time-consuming and challenging running your own business can be. With all the different aspects of the business to contend with, some areas may fall short, and corners may be cut. One of the most commonly overlooked areas of business is the security system that is used.

If you fail to take preventative measures, you may be putting your business at risk, and you are leaving the property vulnerable to theft, property damage, equipment loss, and more. So, in an effort to keep your business safe and secure, we have a few security solutions you can employ to protect your business.

Use the Right Kind of Lighting. Having the right kind of lighting in place is a good way to keep unwanted people away. Burglars prefer to work under cover of darkness, so when they see that a property is well lit, it may be a deterrent and will cause them to go elsewhere out of fear of getting caught. Make sure to have lighting outside of the building including motion sensor floodlights.

Maintenance. Many buildings hire maintenance people to come in after hours to clean and spruce up the property. But did you know this is also a good security measure? Burglars prefer to hit locations that are empty, so if they see maintenance teams out and working, they may move on. They will also see that you are willing to spend the money on keeping up with your property which also means that you have already probably invested in a security system as well.

For this tactic to work, make sure that the grounds are well maintained and kept up and there are no glaring issues outside that have not been addressed like overgrown shrubbery or cracks in the walkway.

Digital Protection. While you may take measures to protect the property and the building, business owners need to go that extra mile and also protect their computers and all digital assets as well. All computers should be equipped with antivirus software, and employees should be trained on what to do when they receive a suspicious email. It is also a good idea to regularly change login information and passwords to further minimize the risk of any kind of breach.

Always Lock Up. While it may seem like a given, some may overlook locking up every possible entrance at the end of the night. If you have money in the tills on the property, make sure to put the money in the safe overnight. You should also have a good lock or even roll up security shutters for further security and protection.

Invest in a Security System

In addition to all the security tips mentioned above, it is also in your best interests as a business owner to invest in a security system so that you can monitor the property at any time of the day or night from virtually anywhere.

"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!"
