Home Security Features Available To Consumers Today

May 11th, 2022

Technology has become better and better over the years. That has been excellent news for Houston consumers and the security industry. For example, in the past, homeowners were stuck with analog cameras. These units didn't always provide the best quality video. Rather, the footage was often grainy and hard to make out. As such, when burglars or trespassers came on the property, the police weren't always able to identify the suspects.

In other words, there were plenty of criminals that got off scot-free. Luckily, property owners don't have to deal with those types of issues anymore. There are numerous products and services available that assist persons with protecting themselves and their families. For instance, modern wireless sensors are easier to install, troubleshoot, and replace than ever before. The units communicate with an alarm system's control panel via radio frequencies. They can prove to be the perfect solution for providing the homeowner with an extra layer of protection.

This And That About Video Features

Some home video surveillance systems are equipped with top-notch security cameras. The devices detect movement and immediately begin recording. Then, the owner receives a clip of the item that triggered the filming. Thus, it doesn't matter whether a person is at home, the office, or on vacation, they can see if an intruder or raccoon eating out of the trash can caused the alert. So, Houston citizens should consider having a security system installed, if for nothing else, to have the ability to distinguish between real and false alarms.

Useful Tidbits About Cellular Monitoring

Cellular monitoring is somewhat of a standard feature today, although, that wasn't always the case. It used to be an expensive upgrade. This option allows persons to watch over their property without the use of wireless or broadband technologies. Basically, a chip or module is placed inside the alarm system's control panel.

That piece transmits data between the monitoring station and system via cellular towers without the use of any wires. The homeowner can have alerts sent directly to their phone when a sensor becomes tripped. Hence, the technology can prevent Houston residents from walking into a dangerous situation.

Lastly, But Certainly Not Least, A Little Bit About Interactive Services

Interactive capabilities have been around for the past decade or so, and they only seem to be getting better. These systems are sometimes a bit pricier than other options, but they often prove to be well worth the cost in the end. When a door/window gets opened, or an alarm becomes tripped, persons receive a text or email about the incident. They give the homeowner the power to arm or disarm the system from their phone as well. Heck, some models even let the individual view recordings from past events.

As if all of this wasn't enough, there is still more. People can create a smart home security system too. With the few swipes of their finger, the property owner can adjust the thermostat, turn lights on and off, or operate keyless locks. All of the items listed here are worthy of any consumer's consideration.

"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!"
