3 Home Security Tips To Follow When Planning A Vacation

June 13th, 2019

It’s summertime, which for many Houston, TX residents means a Summer trip with the family to spend quality time together. Before you head out the door with only a lock on your front door to protect your entire home, check out these three home security tips you should follow if you’re going on a vacation soon.


Hide Valuables

You may have a display for your valuables, but odds are, you want the items on that display to be there when you get back. Before leaving on your trip make sure your valuables are hidden and out of sight. The goal is to have a visible security camera on display, not valuables that will tempt an intruder.


Put the Emergency Key Inside

Do not leave the spare key under the mat, under the fake rock, or in any other well-known hiding place. Instead, make sure that it’s securely inside your home.


Get a professional Houston home security system

Your home’s safety should not be a DIY project. Invest in a professional home security system and monitor your home from any mobile device while gone. This will bring you peace of mind and allows you to check on the family pet if needed. Advantages of a home security system include:

  • Home Automation
  • Access Control
  • Video Surveillance
  • And More

"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!"
