Protect Your Haunted House From The Real Horrors Of The Season

November 6th, 2019

With that telltale fall crispness creeping into the air, it’s just about time for spooky season to start. For haunted house owners, your business should be providing the scares, not experiencing them. Like any business, you’re putting yourself at risk when you don’t have a security system protecting your investment, and this risk can be scarier than any haunts you could dream up. There should be fun in fright, but there is no fun in the type of fright the threat of vandalism, burglary, or worse brings.

Haunted houses should provide a safe environment for business owners, employees, and patrons alike. The only way to achieve this level of safety is with a security system that is tailor made to your haunted house business.

How Your Security System Keeps You Protected

For owners of businesses that are only open for a few months out of the year, a common thought is that a security system is too much of an investment for such a “temporary” business. The truth of the matter is that it only takes one incident to destroy your seasonal haunted house business, and it can take years to get you back to where you once were. Burglaries, vandalism, fraud, and other cases don’t take off certain times of the year, and your security matters whether your business is open 3 months out of the year or all year round. A few ways your security system keeps your business protected are:

  • Protects you from vandalism – The day before Halloween is a very different sort of holiday. Mischief Night, or Devil’s Night, is celebrated when young people go out the day before Halloween to play “pranks” in their local areas. While some of these are harmless and little more than annoying, others can be destructive and devastating to business owners who fall victim. If young people decide to destroy your business property, your security camera system will capture their actions on tape that can be used as evidence of the crime. 
  • Deters burglaries – Props, costumes, technology, and your money can all be left vulnerable after your doors close for the night. The presence of security camera systems deters burglars from targeting your business, and if they should decide to break in anyway, they catch their actions on film. 
  • Protect against fraud – Haunted houses can be a hotspot for fraudulent claims, and just one believable claim could cost your business thousands or more. More “hands on” haunted house experiences could run the risk of legal claims if security cameras aren’t in place to back up your business and your actors. Security camera systems are an effective means of protection against fraud and lawsuits.

Start The Season Right

When you have a great season, it has a compounding effect. Your profits can be put back into your business to make it even better and more profitable the following year, but this type of success is only possible when you protect your investment.

"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!"
