This And That About Warehouse Security

July 23rd, 2019

Warehouses play a vital role in society today. Various companies, including those right here in Houston, use them to store products, equipment, and more. These buildings have thick concrete walls and sturdy, robust doors to keep the items safe. Some organizational leaders believe these aspects are all the protection they need. However, this kind of thinking can lead to them having to file an insurance claim on down the line.

If burglars believe that there is a buck to be made, they will find a way inside the structure to steal everything but the kitchen sink. Sure, the insurance may cover the losses, but filing the documents can be a difficult task in itself. So, Houston business owners that want to save themselves some headaches should continue reading to learn how a security system can help.

Keep An Eye On Your Employees With Security Cameras

Threats don't always come from the outside. Rather, workers can cause problems too. For one, employee-related theft costed the industrial industry over $15 billion in 2016 alone. Aside from robbery, untrustworthy employees can also make fraudulent injury claims. For example, a forklift operator could be riding around recklessly doing doughnuts only to fall off the unit and hurt their back. He or she might lay in the floor screaming and yelling about how the slipped and fell.

Without footage to discredit the claim, the Houston organization may wind up having to pay out a substantial amount of money in compensation. However, if the company has a crystal clear video of the event, they will have all of the proof that they need to avoid becoming entangled in a messy lawsuit. So, protect yourself and the organization that you worked so hard to build with security cameras.

Consider Adding An Access Control System

Access control provides the building with an extra layer of security. Basically, it is a system that requires persons to enter a PIN or swipe a key card to gain entrance into a particular area. Doors leading to the outside can be protected in this way as well as those inside which protect valuable equipment or machinery. Additionally, due to each employee having their own personal PIN or card, it is easy to keep track of who accessed a particular location at a specific time. In other words, if something comes up missing, owners and managers know where to begin their search.

An Alarm Can Be Helpful Too

A properly functioning alarm is the ideal solution for summoning the appropriate emergency department when an intrusion, fire, or another type of incident happens. Depending on the model chosen, it will either emit a silent alert or a loud noise that the entire neighborhood can hear. The unit can be combined with images from the security cameras to cut down on the number of false alarms reported. Meanwhile, the monitoring station operator can see when the danger is real to get the authorities on the scene quickly. This action will limit the amount of damage that the building sustains or the number of goods that get stolen.

"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!"
