Four Security Tips For Your Home And Office

August 15th, 2019

Whether you are at your Houston home relaxing with your family or at work knocking out a project, your safety is the highest priority. No matter where you spend your time, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your spaces are always safe. Here are four security tips that will help you stay safe and secure.

1. Always Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

It’s easy to get pulled out of the moment. We can find ourselves deep in thought or completely focused on a project. During these times we are vulnerable because we aren’t paying attention to the hazards around us. No matter where you are, always make sure to take notice of your surroundings and identify any possible risks or hazardous. Whether they are a suspicious looking person, an open back door, or even a tripping hazard, simply being aware of your surroundings can help you avoid dangerous situations.

2. Plan An Escape Route

Leaving a dangerous situation is one of the best ways to stay safe. Whether you are escaping a home invasion or a fire at your workplace, make sure that you always have an escape route mapped out. If you don’t, take the time to figure out a good route to the exits from anywhere in the building. Then take the time to go over these strategies with your family or coworkers, so that everyone knows how to get out of the building quickly and orderly in the case of an emergency situation.

3. Mitigate Risks Before They Become Problems

Take the time to look over your home and office. Do you see any obvious risks to your safety? Do all the doors and windows have locks? Are there any ways to easily break in that can be blocked? Are your valuables easily seen and accessed? One of the things professional security experts always do is a site check. They take the time to find any vulnerabilities and come up with solutions to mitigate the risks they present. Take a cue from the experts and take a moment to review and fix any glaring security risks.

4. Invest In A Security System

There’s a lot of things you can do to keep yourself safe. However, nothing is more effective than getting a security system. Security systems offer layers of protection. First, they act as an effective deterrent to crime. Criminals do not want to get caught and they know that surveillance cameras and alarm systems will ensure they get caught. Secondly, they can notify you any time something unusual or threatening is happening. Finally, security systems create barriers like access control and automatic locking doors that can keep dangerous out of your space.

At home or at work, the best way to keep safe is to work with a professional security company. Houston security experts can help you identify the issues that are putting you at risk and help you come up with a customized solution to keep you safe. Working together you’ll be able to make sure no matter where you are, you’ll be able to just live your life free of worry. 

"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!"
